* Urgent * Back from Vraja

Dear Guru Maharaja

Please accept our obeisances

All glories to Srila Prabhupada


We are just in our way back to Mexico from almost two months in India and Holy places, with and exhausted body, but lots of beautiful moments in our hearts.

We had a very positive result with the more than 30 people who came with us in tour to Rishikesh, Jaipur and Vrindavan (and surroundings). They enthusiastically engaged in chanting Hare Krishna and were very eager to learn about the pastimes of the Lord specially in Vrindavan. One of the girls in the group just had an amazing realization. While driving she got into an accident where a big truck hook her car over 100meters and the only thing she could think of was the mantra we chanted every day on the bus, HK mahamantra! 


We are just trying to follow your constant instruction of chanting enthusiastically, but seen so many demonstrations of love for Radha & Krishna I can say I don’t have real love for the Names. On Srila Raghunatha Das Goswami disappearance day we visit Radha kunda, and while offering pranams to Syamakunda we observed an old man, cleaning the kund, fighting agains the difficulties of his body but happily doing his service. We just try to appreciate/Thank his service telling him ‘Radhe Radhe’ as is common in Vraja, He responded ‘Radhe Radhe’ with chocking voice and started to cry. How much love this devotees have for their beloveds Names, that just by pronouncing tears start to flow. I don’t have Love for the names.


My mother and sister also have the opportunity to come this karthik to India. We Travel to visit Madan Mohan en Karouli, Govindadevaji & Gopinath in Jaipur were all the devotees melodious bhajans glorifying the Lord doesn’t requiere musical instruments, just once voice. My little 16 years old sister got Iniciation Vraja Mandala Parikrama camp by Lokanat Maharaj. Maharaja was very kind to us and inquiere when we will do Vrajamandala Parikrama. Also happily remember when you used to do parikrama with them.


Gurumaharaja, this time my visit to Vrindavan was very hard, I tried to have as much association as possible, and try to stop the mind from crazy thoughts but I feel like I failed. I feel like I don’t have a service in Srila Prabhupada’s army while im coming here to enjoy the devotional ambience. Our only service was to assist Asita Maharaja in Bhaktivedanta Ashram ISKCON Govardhan for the abhiseka and prasadam distribution on Govardhan Puja.  In general I had many troubles with the pollution and the crowded that turns during festivals.

Next year I will not be able to visit Vraja because im starting post graduate studies. As you suggested I will do something practical (Graduate certification on Pharma regulation), enough to have a ok job.


Gurudeva, please forgive my dullness and inertia to contribute to Srila Prabhupada movement and flickering on my services 


I attached some pictures

PD> I also attached the link of Giriraj retreats Booklet that I should have share in this forum before.



Do you have any plans to go any time to China? we distribute one book to one nice lady who couldnt read but felt very atracted by the pictures. we were talking to Kelly (from Houston) about that possibility.


Thanks for you mercy

And Hoping to see you soon for Vyasa puja in Houston or Mexico

(seems like we always differed in Houston for few days)

Govinda Pramodini Dasi  [ & Ranchor Krishna Das]

HpS - AGTSP paoho.  Such nice news.  If know you don't have any attraction to the Holy Names then you must KNOW what attraction is.  You didn't think the old Vrjavasi as a psychotic. You have some realization.   So, just go on taking the medicine and you will see results. Maybe you will see that when you chant with mechanical effort in the morning then all day you feel physically healthy.

Our respects to your esteemed husband, Ranchorji. Yes, we hope to see you in Ciudad Mexico en just about 8-weeks.

Anyone who helps other reach the Holy Dhams is guarnteed a place there themselves, no?

Oh, and your wonderful brother is here!!!

SUPER fotos.

Oramos al Señor Nrsimhadeva para que siempre lo proteja en Su Sankirtana, energía y para que su labor de prédica sea muy exitosa para el placer de Srila Prabhupada. Todas las glorias a las austeridades de Sud América que hacen posible Su santa asociación.

A pesar de las pruebas duras seguimos en el campo del seva y vani, por vuestras instrucciones seguimos vivos.

Hare Krsna!

AGTSP.  paoho.   Tom Brown here.    HpS has the doors and windows closed so our hay fever is down to 5%.        Today is Srila Prabhupada's Tiro-bhava-mahotsava, departure festival.

Hari-nama-ruci fanatics (led by H. H. Maha-visnu Swami) are here. We sold a book yesterday with them!

Fast until noon then 4PM = Bhajan, 5PM= Abhiseka and Fire Sacrifice (Diksa), .... Arati....  Prabhupada Katha.

Had 30-minute conversation with Dr. Samaresh. He is O.K.   Kolkata is descending to human heat levels.   He gets the final copy of the Index for 'Siksa-darsha' tomorrow!   We are trying to refine the India calendar. He suggests release Siksa-darsha in Pune. We could co-ordinate it with the Symposium on Education.  Then not a fourth book of the papers presented BUT articles for 'Solaris'.

Have to try ghee on our knees.     Leaving soon to our next body, world.

Morning program here is very strong.

Now we will go to Dhatri-yoga for some Govardhana Puja time.

Hare Krsna. Hare Rama.

15-minutes with NGD Prabhu.

Urgente Bolsos Artesanales


Hare Krsna Gurudeva, por favor acepte mis respetuosas reverencias.

Todas las glorias a Srila Prabhupada.


Madre Candra Muki me comento, que Usted me mencionó sobre unas bolsas artesanales.

Tengo unos bolsos artesanales de Yute (27 x 30 cm.) que los lleve al aeropuerto cuando Usted viajo a Chile, y

no pude mostrarle. Le estoy enviando algunas fotos para que conozca los bolsos, por

ahora solo tengo cinco unidades. Hasta el 19 podría hacer unos 10 más, y mejorar los

diseños. Esperare su respuesta.

Discúlpe Gurudeva por mi falta de cualidades para  servirle como usted se merece.



                                                 Atte.  Karuna Mayi devi dasi.



Hare Krsna Gurudeva, please accept my respectful obeisances.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Mother Candra Muki told me, that you mentioned me about handmade bags.

I have some handcrafted Jute bags (27 x 30 cm.) That will take you to the airport when you travel to Chile, and

I could not show him. I am sending you some photos to know the bags, for

Now I only have five units. Until 19 could do about 10 more, and improve the

designs I await your response.

Excuse me Gurudeva for my lack of qualities to serve you as you deserve.

Atte. Karuna Mayi devi dasi.


HpS - ASA - Hare Krsna.   TlgaSP!.  paoho.  These seem fine. What is a good donation for them?  Devotees in the USA are happy to make a reasonable payment.   What we need is one more Peruvian handicraft type bag like the one we already have in Abhirama's apartment. Then we can put more devotional paraphermalia in it. The bags you have may be enough to fill it. What about other devotional handicrafts from other eg. Sita, Gandharva and Mataji?

HPS - ASA - Hare Krsna. TlgaSP !. paoho. Estos parecen estar bien. ¿Qué es una buena donación para ellos? Los devotos en los Estados Unidos están felices de hacer un pago razonable. Lo que necesitamos es una segunda bolsa de artesanía peruana más como la que ya tenemos en el apartamento de Abhirama. Entonces podemos poner más parafermalia devocional en ella. Las bolsas que tengas pueden ser suficientes para llenarlo. ¿Qué pasa con otras artesanías devocionales de otros, por ejemplo. Sita, Gandharva y Mataji?  Cajas?

Vedabase Update - Search

Dear Guru Maharaja,

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

It took long time, but search on Vedabase.io is pretty useful now. 

There is help text on search page which explains different features (boolean, proximity, ......)

English: https://vedabase.io/en/search/

In English is possible to narrow down results by type - book, transcript, letter. In other languages there are only books so far so this filter is not available.

Spanish: https://vedabase.io/es/search/ (help text is still in English, but Spanish search page searches through Spanish texts)

More filters will come, but already now can give you good results when you search for something.

Spanish importing stopped. But recently Bhakta Marco from Mexico joined to help, finished missing 2 chapters in Adi lila (https://vedabase.io/es/library/cc/adi/) and is working now on Madhya Lila.

Your servant Prahlad Nrsimha das


HpS - ASA -  This report, news, is worth a million dollars!    Thank you so much.  We use the search function many times. We can remember part of a verse or a quote from a purport and then find it. Thank you..  Do you need more people to help with the importing work in Spanish?????
