Gandharva dasa's Short Report - House, Home and Village School.

Hare Krsna dear Gurudeva

Please accept our sincere obeisances

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I hope you are in good health. I haven't written the MOE report to you for a few months, and neither have my personal report.

I will try to summarize the most relevant news to bring you up to date. As I mentioned [to] you on the phone, we have moved to the city of Huaraz, 260 miles from Lima, at the foot of the Cordillera Blanca, a place of great natural beauty.

Since I can carry out our main work and service online, we prefer to settle here and begin another chapter of our lives.

HpS - It will include the previous chapters but with greater perspective.

The stage of service in the temple seems to have been left behind. In a climate controlled by mistrust, fear and conflict it is more difficult to develop our devotional path (maybe this is a big limitation of ours).

ASA - 😮 ???

For the time being, we are ready to consolidate our process in the small temple of our house, and if Krsna wishes, to preach His science to whoever is willing to hear it.

ASA - He wishes! Yes, there are faults in ISKCON. There were demons coming to Braja when Krsna was personally present there and by their loud sounds causing the girls to have miscarriages! So, problems in the institution and we always work to correct them, but as you say, we also have to work on making our personal Ashrama healthy. Both are necessary. They help each other.

The work of the MOE has progressed slowly. Education in many Yatras is deeply and worryingly politicized. Education boils down to Srimad Bhagavatam's class (at best) and, I believe, huge opportunities to systematize educational programs are missed by taking advantage of the myriad of digital platforms.

This is how I see it. However, there are perspectives at a regional level, the regional representatives seem enthusiastic about what I think that pedagogical development can be, strengthened by working at a more independent level from local authorities, with the institutional support of the MOE. They are just ideas, hopefully the Lord and you could give us some light on this.

HpS - Is good attitude. Always well wisher of everyone. Bali-mardana Das is working on this systematic institutional level, and we are trying to help from our position. It is not our immediate nature, but that is O.K! Great preachers, who do it through cooking and Prasadam distribution, may not even have a Sastric ability even up to the Bh. Sastri level, but they may know things more advanced that a Bhakti vedanta diplomat by their own method.

Find our relation to the formal academic aspect of KC, no?

Then help to develop it.

Education all over the world is in great crisis.

Have you registered for Bali-mardana Das' Viplavah conference July 29 - Aug 1, and helping build a team of a few others from Pan-america to join? Can we join your team? Viplavah symposium will be each evening but we could do exciting, informative, practical, meetings in our hemisphere during the day, and/or before and after these days.

It is time for the West to lead again.

Srila Prabhupada is "pascatya desa tarine"?

👍 👍 👍

I say goodbye to you.
