Hare Krishna Maharaj,
Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
I had sent a message a few weeks ago that I don’t think had ever went through, do to a poor connection. So I will start by paraphrasing that message:
HpS - Hare Krishna. Yes, we do not see it.
Thank you so much for the NOI book and the note. I have now read in its entirety and am starting to review.
I have completed and passed the disciples course from the Bhaktivedanta college online program.
I’m am attending the mangal Aarti program almost every morning every other week. On the week when I don’t have Aja. During the week while I have him I am doing a small program at our house. I need to incorporate the Siksastaka prayers as well as more reading of the Srimad Bhagavatam. I am trying to read a little bit each day as well as listening to classes.
The days without experiencing Mangal Aarti and chanting rounds early are very difficult and unenthusiastic. I am finding this to be very true. So I am starting to get a small taste for human/devotional life.
Recently, I was very fortune to get to travel to the Brooklyn NYC temple, the Boston temple, the Washington DC temple and the Dallas temple. I performed each night in those cities and was able to spend the morning and most of the day at those temples. The Deities, Devotees and prasadam were very potent and inspiring.
I have been associating and doing service with a devotee here at the Boise temple named Anadi Radha Dasi. We have been talking about getting married for some time. The arrangement has been made by Ananta Rupa and her spiritual master Gopal Krishna Maharaj has given his blessings and approval. Gopal Krishna Maharaj will be here in Boise in the middle of July so the 13th is the date that has been chosen.
Maharaj, may we have your blessings for this arrangement?
HpS ASA - Seems completely insane to Monkey, Piggy and Uncle Gismo. Getting initiated is enough, but getting married also is enough to kill many horses much often thoroughly.
Keep your life simple. Write an opera.
Your aspiring disciple,
