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)

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!!!
