Mandara Sakha Das

Hare Krishna, Guru Maharaj,

Mandara Sakha Das greets you from Chile.

I thank you for the opportunity to write to you and to be able to read the letters you write on this Blog.


HpS - It is a fundamental part of our life and Sankirtan!!


In the previous letter you asked for information about me to remember me. I will comment briefly. I have written little on this blog. I met you in 2009 when I was a psychology student, you gave a seminar at my University and I bought the book Science of Self-Realization. When I finished my studies I went to live in the temple of Santiago de Chile. After 2 years you gave me my first initiation on July 9, 2017 and allowed me to take brahmacarya. Then I was living in the temple of Buenos Aires in Argentina and I became associated with Adi Yajña Das, Panca Tattva Das and other Vaisnavas. In 2019 I returned to Chile and stopped living in temples because I had scoliosis and needed to lead a different kind of life to heal myself.


Then I paired up with a devotee, I got married in 2020 and to this day I do my best to be a good instrument of Krishna.


Currently, together with my wife Gaura Priya, we continue to do preaching activities by zoom. On Tuesdays and Fridays we do sadhana bhakti, where we chant the Hare Krishna maha mantra together, on Thursdays we teach basic topics of bhakti yoga and the Bhagavad Gita, on Sundays we teach Srimad Bhagavatam and later we plan to include a day for Krishna Book for our preaching community.

We were living in the south of Chile, so we did the activities online by zoom, but two months ago we returned to the city and we are doing face-to-face activities. These experiences have been very pleasant seeing how Krishna uses us as an instrument, I will leave you some photographs of it.


Since we returned to the city there have been many favorable circumstances, we have had more association and in fact today we start a fixed kitchen service in the temple two Saturdays a month, at least for now.

 

Guru Maharaj, I would also like to tell you that I am interested in taking a second initiation with you. Since I met Krishna Consciousness until today, I have been able to give real meaning to my life and gradually mature as an eternal servant.


I am currently 31 years old, I have had my hits and misses, but I have never let go of Srila Prabhupada's dhoti. Now, I would like to continue maturing further in the process, and ask for the possibility of receiving initiation in the year 2023. What do you think about that?


HpS - Thank you for the letter! Your persona is like 78% clear in our mind. I will look at th pictures. We are mixing your image with another devotee, but with the picture we should catch you on Bhuvar mandala.

 

Best Regards, my most sincere respect to you, thank you for existing.


HpS - In Braja we think that there is no inertia. Roads etc. move continually to be roads.

Look at the letter we just wrote to Parasurama Das. He also asks for second initiation and our answer to him seems to fit you also!

How long chanting/following 16/4?

Regular Brahma muhurta work?
