Hare Krishna, Dear Maharaj,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Maharaj, we are sincerely praying to Sri Sri Radha Krishnachandra for your good health and long life.
Hope to get your divine darshan again soon in Manipur.
HpS - As soon, agtSP, as I read this, tears come to my eyes. So, sad, but... it is like https://vedabase.io/en/library/sb/1/11/, our separation is only temporary. We are eternally related.
Krsna goes to Hastinapura for some time but then He returns to Dvaraka!
Last night, in my dream, Maharaj [H. H. B. S Damodara Swami? or us?] was present in the Brahmachari Ashram of ISKCON Manipur, and Maharaj was trying to send some messages to your Blog from my computer and you were indicating me to send it. Thinking that this is an indication to write something to you, I am writing this letter to you Maharaj. Long time I have been out of touch with you. Kindly forgive me for that.
HpS - 😿
We hear that there is a terrible internet block, but fortunately we get some news from Sarad bhihari and Yamunesvara et al.
Recently, few days ago, we had an online meeting with the concerned ISKCON leaders of the Eastern India for the approval of the Guruship of H. H. Bhakti Ananda Haridasa Goswami Maharaj. No positive result from the meeting. We have to again wait for another 6-7 months.
I have been regularly attending our Eastern India’s Divisional Council meetings. What I experience from those meetings is that – most of the leaders are very aggressive, not afraid of criticizing/offending exalted pure devotees, and are not respectful of the devotees.
Whenever, I am in such kind of meetings, I am very much afraid of myself whether I am in the midst of critics/offenders of the devotees. Please guide me on this matter Maharaj.
HpS - Not just, agtSP, you, myself, other Sannyasis and even many GBC Secretaries that we know express their distress with GBC meetings.
That is one point that these are meetings in the mode of passion, administration, men, money, family relations.
Srila Prabhupada says that fighting is a necessary part of family life, so no one should be to disturbed by it.
... but the Sannyasa, Brahminical culture should govern the administrative culture. The strong, pure character of ISKCON Brahmanas, Sannyasis, who do not get too much involved with the details of men and money, should give the perspective to these "dirty and lusty" activities. 🙂
Did you pass stool and urine today?
Of course, I did.
We all do.
It is necessary, but it should be regulated in social, polite perspective by higher Chakras.
Participate from Ksatriya-Brahmana perspective as is proper for your character and Ashrama but beyond that don't be involved.
Be sure that your criticisms and requirements as Brahmana are properly expressed and then depend upon Brahminical work like this Blog and Krsna and Balarama's Vrndavana Demon killing activities to take care of the rest.
In Vrndavana (ISKCON?) only Krsna and Balarama kill demons. Of course, they may enter our bodies and minds to do it, but then it is obvious that They have taken control.
Everyone else calls: Hare Krsna! Hare Rama! Hare Krsna! Hare Rama!
We learn love of Srila Prabhupada from our Guru Maharaj. We get strength to serve Srila Prabhupada more and more from our Guru Maharaj. But our Guru Maharaj is no more physically present amongst us. Because of my stupidity, impureness ……, I am unable to feel his physical presence now and then. We are facing a lot problem in his physical absence. And always thinking – how his desires on ISKCON Manipur would be fulfilled in the midst of insurgency problems, communal riots, strong anti-hindu feelings among the Manipuri youths, etc., etc., … and in midst of very narrow minded, envious, non-cooperating management heads of our division? Please guide me in proper direction Maharaj.
HpS/ASA - We get, agtSP, nice perspective from https://vedabase.io/en/library/sb/4/28/ starting with Verse 48. For example, Srila Prabhupada says: "...when he disappears, things once again become disordered. The perfect disciples of the ācārya try to relieve the situation by sincerely following the instructions of the spiritual master."
We try our best then Krsna and Balarama act.
Sometimes Krsna wants Duryodhana, Hiranyakaspur to have external success. So we have have to let there be external defeats.
Maybe ISKCON will just be you, me and Prabhupada 😅
😅 😅. We can try. There will always be results if we try.
Draupadi was complaining often about Yuddhisthira's not taking arms to claim his rights instead of living in the forest, no?
She complained to Krsna, no?
Yet she never lost faith that Krsna was ultimately in complete control and things would work out for the best.
Since Guru Maharaj’s disappearance, you are the only person who comes to Manipur regularly, giving your valuable time and energy for delivering the fallen souls of Manipur. Thank you very much Maharaj for your love of ISKCON Manipur and Sripada Maharaj. Offences we have committed to your goodself during your Manipur visits, kindly forgive us considering that we are fools.
We hope that Maharaj visits to Manipur again and again. Kindly forgive me if I have committed any offence at your lotus feet knowingly or unknowingly.
HpS - 😅
you are damn rascal Sadhubusan Das!
Damn Rascal! 😅 😅 😅 We love Manipur. We love Manimandir. We can only make very small contribution. Your comments make us feel like we should be visiting right now, but we know that Krsna Candra is in charge!
If he needs you, me, he will take us there, no?
