Hoping the allergies are getting better, here in panamá the raining season started but not fully, so weather goes from super humid to super rainy and so we are going thru the same here.

HpS - ASA --- AgtSP!!! Ayur-veda is so nice. Even a little general principles and we can see so many ways to improve our energy. We are 70% pitta, minimum, so allergy means we have to reduce the pitta. That gives us inspiration intuitively what to cook for our Deity.

0ur sadhana is getting so much better, getting up at brahma muhurta, chanting our rounds, i have given myself the task of keeping a steady number of rounds and when i´m completely disciplined committed with this, i increase the number, in order to keep a steady number.

we are following the four principles on point, and we are very interested in keeping studying the second chapter [canto?] of the Srimad Bhagavatam, we feel very interested about the Virat-rupa form of the Lord and its meditation and finding a way in it, to find a "where to start" because every time we feel we are just starting the process, always in the neophyte mood, because i´m having a hard time to keep up the utsahan, some days we feel we aren´t being sincere with our process, like we are ghosting our own process, and i was wondering, if our material nature interfere more than we think it can in our spiritual process to become devotees? or its that some people develop a better relationship with krishna in the separation mood?

HpS - A lot of variety, but the basic principle is that whatever effort you make to purify yourself of material convering, it has a effect. Krsna is pleased

listening every day to your classes and trying to keep everything learned in practice in a daily basis! my memory is giving much trouble i have a hard time remembering everything i learn! its this part of maya too? or more part of our own ignorance?

HpS - Listen. You cannot learn everything. Understand as best you can, then the correct things will sink into your heart.

but still, im not acting like before, when everything used to become dark and lazy and i stopped chanting, but now i chant, even if i feel heavy and not like chanting i chant HARE KRISHNA HARE KRISHNA KRISHNA KRISHNA HARE HARE HARE RAMA HARE RAMA RAMA RAMA HARE HARE !

we do our offerings to the Lord and then eat the prasadam and while chanting we ask the Lord to help us with this feeling, with this thoughts, we pray to the Lord to clean our hearts and to give us the opportunity to serve him, to serve you, serve Srila Prabhupada and serve the devotees! Haribol!

your wellwisher

HpS - Just go back and forth chanting your rounds like a soldier, HK, HK, then you will have strength all day!!! You are doing O.K. Just take advantage of the mercy when Krsna sends it. Always do some service. That will give you intelligence in the fastest way possible about how to be organized.
