Ante narayana smrtih

Todas las glorias a nuestro Fundador Acarya A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Śrīla Prabhupāda, autor del libro KRSNA, la Suprema Personalidad de Dios.

(Encabezo preferido porque viene de su inspiración y se ve mucho más especial)


Querido Gurumaharaja,

Por favor acepte nuestras respetuosas reverencias a sus sagrados pies de loto que están salvando nuestras vidas por haber tomado refugio en Śrīla Prabhupāda.

Mencionamos pies de loto porque no queremos preguntar cómo está uno de sus dedos, UD siempre es transparente y el Señor Nrisimhadeva le protege a cada paso.


Estuvimos esperando que llegue a Houston pero posiblemente lo encontremos más ocupado, disculpe por favor, esperamos no molestar mucho.

Estos días estuve releyendo algunas cartas de los usuarios del blog y hay tantas buenas instrucciones, aprendemos bajo la luz que emana sus palabras inspiradas por Srila Prabhupada, nos conecta al parampara, muchas gracias! al mismo tiempo vamos conociendo su posición en ISKCON, misma que hemos observado por años desarrollarse con pulcritud.


En la pasada clase para Spiritual Shakti, la importancia de los lugares sagrados, nos llevó al recuerdo cuando vivimos en el ashrama de Chosica mandir.

La primera vez que pude hablar con UD, me dió dos instrucciones prácticas:

•Un año después de iniciada sabrás si deseas o no casarte; y

• Vive tu vida espiritual intensamente.

Inmediatamente, por arreglo de Krsna o talvez mi destino, el novio me dijo "elige! tu Guru o yo" (fue extraño) pero sin dudar por un segundo lo elegí a usted y me mudé definitivamente al ashrama de madres entendiendo que era la mejor forma de intensidad, yo era muy joven con tantos errores propios de la juventud, hoy tomo la oportunidad para agradecerle infinitamente por esa guía, fueron los años más maravilloso de mi vida lleno de más aprendizaje que frustraciones porque usted siempre estuvo y está presente, hay tantos vaisnavas que agradecer, porsupuesto ha sido el inicio, hace mucho un devoto enfatizó que la vida espiritual no es como comienza sino como termina, ante narayana smrtih. Por favor sus bendiciones para que nuestras vidas puedan desarrollarse con un molde espiritual siguiendo su vani y vapuh y al final de esta vida lo volvamos a encontrar, encontrar a ud significa encontrar a Śrīla Prabhupāda, ese es nuestro camino a Krsna garantizado.

Lamentablemente por el tema de la visa no podremos viajar a Houston.

Porsupuesto también hemos tenido y continuamos con tantas pruebas pero no queremos lamentar demasiado porque las recompensas superan los desafíos.


Envío la foto de la octava cuenta para que me diga por favor si es un error que la tenga separada con un broche remanente de las Deidades, no está apretada, la cuenta tiene la misma fisura por ambas caras, tengo varios años así y posiblemente estoy cometiendo ofensas.

Puede ser que sea la preferida pero es porque las 8 principales gopis me acercan a Krsna.

Asaltantes de ómnibus me robaron mi japa de iniciación en un viaje de sankirtana, está japa la ofrecí a las Deidades del templo Krsna Balarāma de Vrndavan en el 2002.


Mi esposo no suele escribir mucho, pero si leer bastante los libros de Śrīla Prabhupāda y predicar, usualmente también participa de los programas en linea, le envía sus reverencias, él piensa que el acontecimiento del 2024 será que SS. Hanumatpresaka Swami conocerá a su discípulo formal sannyasi.

Leímos el kapi dvaja

Futuro lejano

En México el Vyasa-puja también se celebra este día, será muy auspicioso tener su darshan. Pensamos que es buena propuesta en español para este lado del mundo si a uds les parece bien. Muchas gracias.



Por favor perdone muestras ofensas

All glories to our Founder Acarya A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Śrīla Prabhupāda, author of the book KRSNA, the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

(Preferred header because it comes from your inspiration and looks much more special).


ASA - 🐶 🐈 🐻 AgtSP !


Dear Gurumaharaja

Please accept our respectful obeisances to your sacred lotus feet [ASA - Lettuce feet] who are [One of the devotees] saving our lives by taking refuge in Śrīla Prabhupāda.


We mention lotus feet because we do not want to ask how one of your toes is, you are always transparent and Lord Nrisimhadeva protects you at every step.


HpS - We had so many suitcases open in our trailer in Tennessee that we tripped over one of them and our toes turned blue from the strike. Now we can rub the toes with not pain, but the tendons connecting the toes make some loud sharp noise when we rub them. Maybe the tendons and their base point on the foot was bruised?


We were waiting for you to arrive in Houston but we may find you busier, please excuse us, we hope we don't bother you too much.


HpS - No bother. We noted in the Kapi Dhvaja (agt Patraka Das and Antoinette) that was BIG move and BIG symposium from H. H. Roma pada Swami, but now we have our roots just getting connected in the ground.


These days I was rereading some letters from Blog users and there are so many good instructions, we learn under the light emanating from his words inspired by Srila Prabhupada, it connects us to the parampara, thank you very much! At the same time we are getting to know their position in ISKCON, which we have observed for years developing neatly.


In the last class for Spiritual Shakti, the importance of sacred places took us back to when we lived in the Chosica mandir ashrama.


The first time I was able to talk to you, you gave me two practical instructions:


•One year after it starts you will know whether or not you want to get married; and


• Live your spiritual life intensely.


Immediately, by Krsna's arrangement or perhaps my destiny, the groom told me "choose! Your Guru or me" (it was strange) but without hesitation for a second I chose you and I moved permanently to the mothers' ashrama understanding that it was the best form of intensity, I was very young with so many mistakes typical of youth, today I take the opportunity to thank you infinitely for that guide, they were the most wonderful years of my life, full of more learning than frustrations because you were always and are present, there are so many Vaisnavas to thank, of course it has been the beginning, long ago a devotee emphasized that spiritual life is not how it begins but how it ends, before narayana smrtih.


HpS - Wonderful!!

By the way. Any news of the Jambavati Devi Dasi. We keep the pictures of her deities on our altar, but no news of her for some time!

Of course, Krsna seems to be taking personal care of her.

We listen to your stories as Sankirtan partners. Amazing.

Yet, better things are to come.

Which do we want to be in our next life: Kunti or Draupadi! 😥


Please your blessings so that our lives can develop with a spiritual mold following your vani and vapuh and at the end of this life we find you again, finding you means finding Śrīla Prabhupāda, that is our guaranteed path to Krsna.


HpS - I think that there is just as much chance that I will find H. H. Bhakti bhusana Swami's feet and that will get me back in connection with Krsna.


Unfortunately, due to the visa issue, we will not be able to travel to Houston.


HpS - Oooof! Maybe the CIA will kidnap you and your good husband by mistake and bring you to the Houston Temple as a recompense.


Of course we have also had and continue to have so many trials but we don't want to regret too much because the rewards outweigh the challenges.


HpS - On the other had, as soon as we just put both hands up in the air and call, He Govinda! We just have no problems! [What happened to all those Sarees???]


I am sending the photo of the eighth bead so that you can please tell me if it is a mistake that I have it separated with a remnant clasp of the Deities, it is not tight, the bead has the same crack on both sides, I have had this for several years and possibly I am committing offenses.


HpS - Don't think so. Some good glue?


It may be the preferred one but it is because the 8 main gopis bring me closer to Krsna.


ASA - https://kksongs.org/songs/v/vrndavanaramya.html


Bus robbers stole my initiation japa on a sankirtana trip. I offered this japa to the Deities of the Krsna Balarāma temple in Vrndavan in 2002.


HpS - We heard that Srila Prabhupada said, that replacing sincerely lost beads makes them as good as the ones on which were chanted.


My husband does not usually write much, but he does read Srila Prabhupāda's books and preach a lot, he usually also participates in the online programs, sends his obeisances,

he thinks that the event of 2024 will be that His Holiness. Hanumatpresaka Swami will meet the formal disciple of his sannyasi.


HpS - Hmmm. Interesting. We think Yadunandana Swami is a great Sannyasa guru.

Our respects to him.

After all these years is he still in control of "the coconut"?



Update

We read the Kapi Dhvaja


Distant future


January 11-13, ASA/HpS/Vyasa-puja


11º Home Program? Focus on Spanish?


In Mexico Vyasa-puja is also celebrated on this day, it will be very auspicious to have its darshan. We think it is a good proposal in Spanish for this side of the world if that sounds good to you.


HpS - It seems good so far. That's Thursday and then in the Temple on Saturday focusing in English.


Thank you so much.

Please forgive any offenses

Your eternal aspiring servant
