Dear Guru Maharaja

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada! All glories to you!

It was so wonderful meeting you in Houston. In spite of traveling for two months, you were going full steam with programs in Houston. We were tired just traveling with you to all those places. We felt it was too much travel for you, especially going from one place to another in very short intervals.

We feel so fortunate to live in Dallas because we are able to get so much of your association. We have also kind of settled into the community here. The mood of the temple here is so much focused on big festivals. This year's Janmashtami and Prabhupada's Vyasapuja were one of the best I've participated in.

I am chanting my 16 rounds and following the principles. I have a few rounds to catch up and will catch up soon. Divya and I are reading Bhagavatam together. We just started reading Devahuti and Karma Muni's section together as per your instruction. We are also reading Bhagavad Gita everyday with my parents. We are in Chapter 8. We hope to complete it before they leave to India in November.

We were struggling to find a study partner to systematically study Prabhupada's books. Finally, we found a devotee family in the community who was willing to do it with us. We decided to get together and read once a week every Monday. We have started reading NoI. Please bless us so that we keep up the enthusiasm and continue doing it for our purification.

HpS - Great! Today is the anniversary of NOI. Offer it a birthday feast!.

I took your advise and spoke with Srinivas Prabhu about Samskrita Bharati course. He was very kind in encouraging me to enroll in their course. I have enrolled in the course and have attended a couple of classes. I can now ask someone's name, tell my name and count to 10 in Sanskrit :) I hope and pray that I can use this education in my sankirtan.

ASA - Mama nama, Tom Brown, bhavatu nama kim?

Anything and everything we are able to do is only because of your mercy Guru Maharaja.

Your servant

Srinatha Krsna dasa

HpS - AGTSP!!!! Thank you for your association!!!
