All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

All glories to Gurudeva!

I hope this finds you well and very happy in Your wonderful consciousness of Our dearest person: KRSNA💕 in this wonderful month of kartika.


Please excuse my delay in writing my report.

When I went out to do a service outside the home I had a bit of a strong test and some more. But the good thing is that I understood the need for His Gurudev instruction:

https://vedabase.io/es/library/noi/5/#bb5954 and some more that you gave me in a previous letter. thank you very very much 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼


While I was recovering to write to you I had a dream where you told me that I should not wait to write to you, that I should write to you while it is happening to me, so it can help me and benefit others!

You are such a wonderful Guru!!!

Eternal thanks!!!



Your questions:


_Madhavendra Puri das came home a while ago. He brought me my tava pache pache that I ordered from prabhu Nikunja Bihari das.

Franco cooked for him and we shared.

MPD told me he would write to you soon.


_I had the opportunity to meet very good Dance teachers!... but recommending is something more delicate... I still want to meet my dance Guru.

Because you mentioned it, we read the letters before ours and especially loved her response to devotee Yajnaseni DD's letter. thank you so much.



Srimad Bhagavatam


In the book Prabhupada Lilamrta page 302. Srila Prabhupada responded that women should not appear in theater plays.

 When I read this, I wanted to ask you and I forgot.

 How should all of us who do this Dance service take this instruction? thank you very much🙏🏼


HpS - Traditionally in India, even the part of women would be taken by men, in dramas. This was the classical standard in Western culture also, as far as we know.

As far as we know Srila Prabhupada watched some modern dramas such as those organized by Sudama Swami where devotee ladies performed with men.

In general I think that we should try to minimize the contact. Ladies can perform in one scene, gents in another.

Manipuri dance there is no eye contact between male and female dancers.

That is all that I know.


When I read this a long time ago I thought I would stop dancing in public. Then I dreamed about my friend Indhuleka (who is no longer physically here) she said: don't stop dancing, you do it very beautifully and it is also for Krishna... there are few dancers who do it for Krishna.

In the dream there was a festival and I went to the kitchen to do service. When show time arrived I didn't want to go... I wanted to stay in the kitchen... but Indhuleka and other devotees pushed me with their words: come on, it's your service! It was a temple that I had never seen before.


HpS - Yes, strong phrase that Prabupada quotes about ladies dancing on stage in Bengali tradition, but.... as far as I know they did not dance with men on stage at the same time.


We have started reading the 2nd canto.

The last comment I wish to make regarding her answer that besides a woman's intuition, she must confirm with guru, sastra and sadhu..


HpS - Yes!!


I thought that this movement is so important. So much preaching is needed.. When I saw that Indian documentary that I told you about.. I thought that there are many girls like them who do.


If they had the opportunity to know Krishna Consciousness it would really change their lives.


How many lives can be saved...!


I remember what you said about mother Sita, it is a hobby but we must learn that she disobeyed and crossed the line drawn by Laksman (represents the 4 principles) and was kidnapped.


Frank:


had another accident...!!!...a fall at home. Apparently he fractured another rib... on the opposite side of the one he fractured on the motorcycle... he is recovering at home, happily he feels better and better and he started again, always active doing so many things: farming and building, cooking and making crafts .

I ask for your blessings for Him please.


HpS - Hare Krsna!!! Best wishes for full success in his spiritual life and Sankirtan. What happend to the motorcycle? 🙂


Please forgive my offenses committed in this letter unintentionally🙏🏼


Please accept my eternal obeisances at Your lotus feet and accept obeisances from my dear life partner and my dear Gopalito..!


Trying to please him:

HpS - Thank you!
