Dearest Esteemed Guru Maharaj,

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

I am most humbled that you remembered a sinner like me. I feel that I am still very much a toddler in my spiritual life. I often try to walk, but fall again and again. Many a time, I have hurt myself from the fall. I am now trying to improve my sadhana. I am keeping a better track of how many rounds are remaining from my daily 16 rounds, and if some were left, I try to complete them the next day or before the end of the week. The one thing that I keep forgetting is the importance of taking shelter of you Guruji and taking your association. I get so involved and mentally insecure about my life, my job, my salary, my finances, my accounts, my taxes, on and on, etc..., that I forget to take shelter. I recently visited the church! It was the TAMUK BSM - Texas A&M University - Kingsville Baptist Student Ministry. One student invited me for a prayer session and so I went with him. I learned a lot and gained insight forcing me to reflect on my own faith from the prayers and sermon. The priest definitely put a lot of emphasis on the word of God and how the word became Jesus. I remember how you used to teach us about the Logos in your own lectures. I realized how much need there is for me to study the scriptures, both of my own Vaishnava tradition and the Christian faith, from which we can also learn a lot. I sometimes or often times feel bogged down by my corporeal desires, especially relating to material success. I think what life would have been like if I did not have those desires and if I led a much simpler life. The church sermon especially pointed out something that showed how shallow my relationship with God was. In John 4, Jesus talks with a Samaritan woman who accepts his word and spreads it to her townspeople. The woman was not a follower of Christ for any miracle or for any material gifts, but for his word. I realized how shallow my relationship with the Paramatma Shri Krishna was, wherein I ask him for material gains and don't ever think of worshipping Him only for His sake or knowing Him only for His sake. 

Maharaja, I have far to go on the spiritual path and am only an infant in wake of God's path.

Your aspiring servant,

Aja Govinda dasa
