Hare Krsna Dear SS Hanumat Presaka Swami

ASA - Same as yours. <img alt="smiley" height="23" src="http://hps.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/regular_smile.png" title="smiley" width="23" />
I am writing to you for the following:
1.- Please, you could give me the link of the recorded classes of Bhakti vedanta.
HpS - We Tweet them! The Candra-mukhhi DD has them I think. We can get them but it is a lot of work to back and find then. Ask here first, O.K?
2.-Hiranykasipu is very intelligent, he has knowledge about the science of soul, his preaching to his family is very good.
ASA - To the level of Brahman or maybe Paramatma, but it is milk tinged with egoism: Be spiritual and intuitive so you can kill God.
Is the level of self-realization of hiranyakasipu in brahman level?
ASA - Aaaa! Yes. The self is Brahman, eternal, but then, "Eternally what"?
3.- Canto 1 and 2 of the SB, SP encourages people to read the SB, and for doing so you will become realized, already from the Canto 3, SP mentions other requirements, even says that it is not enough to chant only hare krsna,, also you have to read, associate, take refuge in a spiritual master.this leads me to think that in addition to levels there are different types of self-realization. Can you please tell me where I can find more information on this?
ASA - Of course, the easiest is the NOI Text 10! Then look at the abc-ndx.docx in our Jayarama.us Archives under "Yoga ladder". Self-realization usually means Brahman, Paramatma and Bhagavan. Then Bhagavan means Santa rasa, dasya rasa . .. No limit. A dog in Prana-maya, has gone beyone Anna-maya. In Anna-maya the baby and puppy identify them selves with the world. In Prana-maya then identify themselves with their body. In Vatsalya rasa we identify our selves with Yasoda-nandana, in Madhurya-rasa we identify oursleves with Gopi-jana-vallabha.
Please, forgime my offenses
with much appreciation and gratitude
ys and spiritual niece
