Marriage Arranged by my parents

1 week, 6 days ago by sriram in Personal Sadhana Reports

Hare Krishna Guru Maharaj,

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

Its been a while since i wrote to you and i apologize for that. I am chanting 16 rounds and following the regulative principles. I am current reading SB Canto 3 Chapter 25.

I have found a nice group of young devotees here in Atlanta and the sanga is wonderful. We have a book reading call every Monday and we just finished NoI a couple of weeks back and we have started Teachings of Lord Kapila and are in verse 5 now. We get together once or twice a week in person at someone's home and have nice kirtan and prasadam.

Balaram purnima and Janmashtami were celebrated in a grand manner in Atlanta temple.

I celebrated Radhashtami in Dallas at Srinath's home and Kalachandji's and it was wonderful.

My parents have arranged a marriage for me Guru Maharaj. The girl's name is Vishaka and she is from Chennai, India and is also South Indian Brahmin like us. She's also a very nice devotee and has been practicing Krishna Consciousness for a while now. She has also done BA Sanskrit and is interested in studying Sanskrit further. I have also spoken to her and feel she's the right person to be with in Grihasthashrama to help progress in bhakti. I believe i still have some material desires and attachments and Grihasthashrama will be the right vehicle to help me progress in Krishna Consciousness.

This is a talk she gave on the occasion of Janmashtami:

The wedding date has been fixed for January 27th 2023 in Chennai, Guru Maharaj. Please bless us so that we can do this one last time and never again.

I have also booked my tickets to India and Vrindavan. My mother's Guru Maharaj - HH Bhakti Vikas Swami is having is Vyasa Puja in Govardhan from October 28th to November 1st. Me and my parents will be in Vrindavan from October 28th to November 4th. I am eagerly awaiting the day when i can meet you in Radha Kunda and take your association during Kartik Parikrama.

HpS - Seems like all good news. Maybe your good wife can contact Srinivasa and Sugopi and Mataji about Sanskrita studies in the USA.

Of course, this world is dukhalayam asavattam, so we can expect big changes at any moment.

We also hope to see you in Vraja.

We will leave India like 24th of January.

Hari Bolo!!!!

All repects to everyone.

Your humble servant

Srirama Krishna Das
