Dear Gurudeva:

All glories to Sri Sri Radha Krishna

All glories to Sri Sri Gaura Nitai

All glories to Srila Prabhupada

All glories to you

Please accept my most humble obeisances

Every sunday I go to Temple´s kitchen to help, I talked with the devotee in charge and I said him that I want to learn to cook, He´s teaching me. Sometimes the kitchen is really hard, but I love that place, the devotees and what we are doing, I think I found my place.

Sankirtan is getting better, last week I distributed some books at work, my co-workers were so glad, even my boss called me to his office to know more about the books.

My first question is about Sankirtan, we always talk about preaching with the example, how can I preach something about I don´t have a realization? I know I´m not this body, but I don´t act like that, how am I going to talk about that?

HpS - You can just tell people what you are actually experiencing. Maybe the Bhagavatam gives you peace when you read it. Maybe you think the contents are very rational and as far as you apply them they have helped you understand that you are not your body. Maybe you have had some special mercy from Guru and Krsna and you can tell them about that experience. Just consider what you know and tell them that. You can just be a post-man, deliver the $1,000,000 check., They are more intelligent than us. We can think that they will get more out of the books than us.  Make friends.

Second question: How can we have a realization about our only occupation is devotional service and leave fruitive activities?
HpS - By gradually seeing, experimenting, investigating Srila Prabhupada and then we trust what he says is true. Then we try to just serve Krsna and it works. Everything else improves!

Situation: Sometimes, not all time, I feel emotionally really bad, when It happens I think: I want to get out of here, Krishna Conciousness is the only way! Then I think: what´s my motor [motive], serve to Krishna or leave this world?

HpS: We want to get out of "this" world, mud, so we can serve Krsna!   Become attached to Krsna and detached from Maya.

You are my everyday inspiration, my mom used to say me: sos la luz de mis ojos. Gurudeva, usted es la luz de mis ojos.

HpS - We are very bad representatives of Srila Prabhupada, but he can give us some use by his mercy!!

To serve you
Bhaktin Carol
