Vegan Diet, Reinitation etc.

Querido Gurumaharaja: 

Por favor acepte mis respetuosas reverencias!

Todas las glorias a Srila Prabhupada!

Gracias por mantenernos informados de Su Sankirtana y energía.

Estoy muy agradecida por permitirme servirle, disculpe por continuar cometiendo errores por favor. Soy  la penúltima hija del tercer matrimonio de mi padre y lo único que hice es jugar con muñecas... hay una lista en Jayarama y parece que soy 2da discípula mujer y 8vo discipulo de una larga lista,  es un lindo número :) auspicioso para aprender a tomar una amorosa responsabilidad. 

Gurumaharaja tengo unas preguntas sencillas que en nuestros dias cotidianos se platican. 

Se ha vuelto muy popular la dieta vegana en la sociedad con muy buenos argumentos, honestamente prefiero seguir ofreciendo leche y sus derivados a Krsna. Krsna aprecia a los karmis yoguis como yo  pero deseamos mucho avanzar a jñana yoga y ofreceremos con amor y devoción sincera para satisfacer favorablemente al Señor Supremo, a Krsna le gusta los ladhus con mantequilla :) 

Se ha vuelto muy común ver a algunos de nuestros amigos frecuentar lugares veganos de no devotos o personas que son favorables porque te responden  "Hare Krsna" o practicantes de algún proceso  y comprarles preparaciones de granos. 

Mis preguntas

1- Si tengo un restaurante Hare krsna cerca , es mas  importante que sea bhoga- vegano que lacto- prasadam por la violencia que puedo causar ? 

2- un amigo [email protected] de ISKCON se reinició, compartimos lindo servicio. 

Después de su reiniciacion es extraño no saludarle como antes ni compartir servicio ( fuera del templo ejm. Trabajos en computadora)  

Alguien me aconsejo tomar distancia para que entienda que  el tomar reiniciacion y rechazar a su diksha guru es una grave ofensa, es correcto tomar esa actitud? 

3- una mataji de nuestro colectivo artisartísco Natabara está muy entusiasta en producir una coreografía de danza de Manipur. Hemos escuchado de Ud. Que requiere mucha práctica.

Se podrá conseguir esa practica viendo vídeos de youtube o es mejor esperar la visita de algún bailarín manipurense?

Muchas gracias y disculpe las preguntas simples. 

Su eterna aspirante a sirviente

Dear Gurumaharaja:

Please accept my respectful obeisances!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

Thank you for keeping us informed of Your Sankirtana and energy.

I am very grateful for allowing me to serve you, sorry for continuing to make mistakes please. I am the penultimate daughter of my father's third marriage and all I did was play with dolls ... there is a list in Jayarama and it seems that I am 2nd woman disciple and 8th disciple of a long list, it is a nice number :) auspicious for Learn to take a loving responsibility.

HpS - Please forgive our offenses. We also come from simple family situation!   We all do, in Kali yuga.

Gurumaharaja I have some simple questions that in our daily days are discussed.

The vegan diet in society has become very popular with very good arguments, I honestly prefer to continue offering milk and its derivatives to Krsna. Krsna appreciates karmis yogis like me but we very much want to advance to jnana yoga and offer with sincere love and devotion to please favorably the Supreme Lord, Krsna likes ladhus with butter :)

It has become very common to see some of our friends frequent vegan places of non-devotees or people who are favorable because they answer "Hare Krsna" or practitioners of some process and buy them grain preparations.

My questions

1- If I have a Hare krsna restaurant nearby, is it more important that I am a bhoga-vegan than lacto-prasadam because of the violence I can cause?

ASA - Srila Prabhupada was talking about healthy diets and said that it is better to die taking Prasadam, but there are also different kinds of Prasadam. He talks about the standard in his mothers kitchen and says that if you take Prasadam that comes from a kitchen like that then immediately you feel refreshed.

In the NOD we remember that one of the offenses in the Deity worship is to offer grains GROWN by non-devotees. So, there is Karma in milk or no milk, vegetables, grains. We try to offer the best of the bad choices available in Kali yuga to Krsna and then we eat His remnants.
The dairy industry in the USA is better than it was when Prabhupada was here. You can get milk from different dairys and they have different quality. Yes, don't take excess for sense gratification, but if we are using our brains, like the King's counselors, then we have to have the sugar and energy that comes from milk. If we are living in the forest and just chanting and worshipping Tulasi then we can live without much milk. The cows whose butter is offered to Krsna as laddus go to Goloka when they die.

2- A devoted friend of ISKCON is reinitiated, we share nice service.

After reinitiated it is strange not to greet him as before or share service (outside the temple eg computer works).

Someone advised me to take distance so that you understand that taking reinitiation and rejecting your diksha guru is a serious offense, is it correct to take that attitude?

HpS - It is probably something very individual eg. He had an ISKCON DIksa guru who fell down. After six years he took shelter of another ISKCON guru.  Seems O.K.    He left nice ISKCON diksa guru because Guru required 16-rounds and took shelter of someone who only requiered 4-rounds. Seems bad.  Yes, by NOI five we can see how to relate to different devotees. Sometimes it is hard to be socially distant to show the truth. That was Arjuna's problem. He didn't want to disrupt his social relations.

3- a mataji of our collective artisartísco Natabara is very enthusiastic in producing a dance choreography of Manipur. We have heard from you. It requires a lot of practice. Can you get that practice watching YouTube videos or is it better to wait for the visit of a manipulated dancer?

ASA - Best to communicate with Gaurangi. Lalita gopi has her address.  Of course, we can pick up something from internet but I don't think too much depth.

Thank you very much and excuse the simple questions.

His eternal aspiring servant
