Subject: Acerca de Srila Acaryadeva,desde Los Angeles

Pamho.AgtSP:
Martes 17, Los Angeles:

Aqui estamos, son
las 10 am y 10 devotos con la guia de madre Varesa,nos dirigimos hacia Ojai,un lugar entre los cerros muy ,muy bonito a 1hora y media de LA, donde SA esta viviendo.El dia se presento soleado,pero algunas lluvias matizan el paisaje, incluyendo un hermoso arco iris.

Llegamos a las 11 am. y SA estaba como siempre con ese humor tan extatico,nos pregunto el nombre a c/u y el mantubo el grupo muy entretenido por todo el dia.El imitaba la forma de hablar de los Arg. y Mexicanos era divertidisimo,conto tambien la historia cuando el iba a Arg. en el 74 a predicar y todos los pasatiempos de aquella epoca.Mas tarde organizamos,diferentes servicios como, la limpieza de su casa,cocinar para los devotos,ir a comprar el bhoga,c/u de los devotos hizo un servicio personal para el,hasta uno llego a cortarle el pelo.Los devotos no podian creerlo, nunca antes habian tenido asociacion personal con el.

El nos hablo de presentar al mundo, de una buena manera, la Conciencia De Krsna, como una ciencia espiritual.Como comportarnos correctamente como devotos,la proteccion y el respeto por las madres,al respecto hablo acerca de que el odio y el orgullo no solo son compatibles con la lujuria sino que se alimentan uno al otro;en cambio el respeto es incompatible con ella.

Lujuria es el concepto errado de que el cuerpo de otra alma existe para que yo pueda explotarlo y no para que esa alma sirva a Dios.Ver a otra persona,como no digna de respeto es una buena base para el desarrollo de la lujuria.

2 veces salimos a caminar con el, y por la tarde despues de tomar prasadam, dio un darshan.SA estaba muy feliz, nos trato con mucho afecto y todos los devotos lo sintieron asi.El dijo que no iba a viajar,sino que se quedara en algun lugar y los discipulos pueden ir a visitarlo.El nos contaba que mucho de sus discipulos le piden bendiciones para ir a India, a Espana,aqui y alla pero nunca viajan a visitarlo y en la cultura vedica es deber del discipulo ir al encuentro de su Guru.

Como broche de oro ,llego Radhanath Swami y fue increible verlos a los 2 discutiendo e intercambiando puntos de vista sobre las sastras y nuestra sociedad;por ultimo a la noche , cuando nos ibamos,la imagen de verlos sentaditos en los almuadones riendose como ninos y dandonos sus bendiciones es algo dificil de sacar de la mente .SA estaba muy extatico,energico, feliz en estar en compania de su familia espiritual.

Todos los devotos creeriamos que fue un sueno,salvo por los tapes que grabamos.

Hoy es 25, dia de Navidad, y otra vez vamos a visitarlo, solamente Bta Martin y yo.Hoy el dia es completamente soleado.Llegamos y el estaba caminando pero al tiempo vino, muy rapidamente me indico, lo que tenia que hacer con lo que el estaba cocinando, es maravilloso pero SA se cocina,se lava su ropa,limpia la casa hace las compras etc; por supuesto que al ir nosotros tomamos toda esa misericordia. El nos contaba diferentes cosas, el fue muy misericordioso al darnos una tan intima asociacion.Por la tarde salimos y el se apoyo en el auto con su cara al sol y no paraba de hacer chistes entre filosofia y visiones de predica. El nos conto que tubo un sueno hace poco con SP y el le decia que era un buen devoto y donde el habia ido hizo un buen trabajo y por eso ahora tenia que buscar algun lugar (muy probablemente en EEUU,eso esta pensando, hay diferentes propuestas)y servirlo ahi.

Pudimos apreciar como sus vecinos lo querian, el decia:
"voy a saludar a mis vecinos" y al rato podiamos escuchar sus risas; su energia espiritual traspasa todo tipo de condicionamientos en los demas.

Todo el tiepo nos hablo de como presentar la CK y como
tenemos que erradicar de ISCKON tantos exentrismos y superstisiones y presentarnos a la sociedad de una manera adecuada. Mas tarde tuvimos un pequeno programita donde canto muy dulcemente el Sri guru vandana y despues el recito los mantras en sanscrito de la Bgita del 3 cap. Por la noche emprendimos el regreso,pero arreglamos ir ayudarle con su mudanza del 31 donde ira a vivir a su casa de Bervelly hills en Los Angeles

Disculpen por mi incapacidad de escribir y narrrar, pero el tiempo llama y mas en una maraton de SP.Espero humildemente de todo corazon que al leer esto los inspire mas en su meditacion de Guru y Krsna.

Con profundo respeto y amor Premarnava das

Subject: Rendición por Srila Acaryadeva

Mas instrucciones de Srila Acaryadeva


quote:

Con respecto a la rendición debemos tratar de desarrollar la más ilusoria de todas las virtudes, la paciencia. Este es un proceso gradual y el mero hecho de que uno esté interesado en él y quisiera rendirse, incluso si uno fuese incapaz de hacerlo, es en si mismo una clase de rendición. Entonces, debemos recordar que nosotros estamos en el estadío de sadhana bhakti, en el cual sencillamente no nos "rendimos" si no que practicamos el hacer ciertas cosas que gradualmente, nos conducirán al punto de la rendición. Por supuesto, el entregarse al sadhana-bhakti podría ser también muy difícil para algunas personas pero en general, debemos hacer simplemente lo mejor que podamos. Ser tan sincero como nos sea posible, y seguir orando y cantando tanto como podamos y todo se solucionará al fin.

More instructions by Srila Acaryadeva....


quote:

Regarding surrender, we should try to develop that most illusive of all virtues, patience. It is a gradual process and the mere fact that you are concerned about and would like to surrender, even if you are unable to, is itself a kind of surrender. So we should remember that we are in the stage of sadhana-bhakti, in which we don't simply just "surrender", but that we practice doing certain things that will gradually bring us to the point of surrender. Of course the surrender to sadhana-bhakti may also be excruciating for some people, but in general, we should just do the best we can; be as sincere as we can; and keep praying and chanting as much as we can, and it will all work out in the end.

Subject: Consejos e Instrucciones utiles ( por: SA)

Queridos Maharajas, Prabhus, y Prabhvis,
Por favor acepten mis humildes reverencias. Todas las glorias a Srila Prabhupada. Srila

Por un pedido de Srila Acaryadeva, comenzaré a enviar algunos de sus discernimientos en respuesta a varias situaciones que se presentan. Estos son extractos de correspondencia que él ha escrito, pero los nombres han sido omitidos por obvias razones. Intentaré enviar estas citas tan seguido como sea posible y espero que ustedes las encuentren inspiradoras.
Es mi deseo que esta carta los encuentre a todos plenamente ocupados en vuestro servicio a Sri Guru y Sri Gauranga!

Su aspirante a sirviente,
Divyananda dasi


quote:

Usted se refirió al tema de como podemos liberarnos de nuestra ira. Digo "nosotros" debido a que este es un tema realmente para todos. Interesantemente, estaba leyendo esta mañana justamente el Yoga sutra donde Patanjali enfatiza que cuando sea que se presenta una cualidad indeseable, como la ira, los celos, etc, debemos meditar diligentemente en la cualidad opuesta. De esta manera, cuando se presenta la ira debemos meditar en el perdón. El perdón es el arma para matar al demonio del amargo enojo.

Por otra parte, encuentro provechoso, el recordarme a mi mismo, que él rencor no es una emoción espiritual. Entonces, si estuviesemos sintiendo algún tipo de enojo, celos, autocompasión, etc, podemos meditar diligentemente en las cualidades opuestas, como Patanjali aconseja y recordar siempre que estas emociones simplemente no son emociones espirituales y que su presencia en la mente y en el corazón conduce a Krsna fuera de nuestra mente y corazón. Así como nosotros sólo podemos vivir en una casa o cuarto que se encuentra limpio y ordenado, de la misma forma Krsna solo está de acuerdo en residir (al menos en una forma manifiesta) en un ambiente limpio. Es por ello, que si estas emociones impuras se presentan en nuestra mente, entonces nuestra mente ya no se vuelve una residencia conveniente para Krsna.

Espero que estas pequeñas meditaciones sean útiles para usted.

Esperando que usted se encuentre bien.
Con mis buenos deseos.
Hridayananda das Goswami

Subject: Useful instructions & advice

Dear Maharajas, Prabhus, and Prabhvis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

At Srila Acaryadeva's request, I will begin to post some of his insights in response to various situations that arise. These are excerpts from
correspondence that he has written, but names have been omitted for obvious reasons. I will attempt to post these quotes as often as possible, and hope that you also find them inspiring.
May this find you all blissful in your service to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!

Your aspiring servant,
Divyananda dasi


quote:

You raised the issue of how we can let go of our anger. I say 'we' because this is an issue really for everyone. Interestingly, I was just reading the yoga sutras this morning where Patanjali stresses that whenever an undesirable quality arises, such as anger; jealousy; etc., we should diligently meditate upon the opposite quality. So when anger arises, we should meditate upon forgiveness. Forgiveness is the weapon to slay the demon of bitter-anger.

I also find it useful to remind myself that bitterness is not a spirituale motion. So if we are feeling a type of bitter-anger; jealousy; self-pity; etc., we can meditate diligently on the opposite qualities as Patanjali advises and also remember that these emotions are simply not spiritual emotions and that their presence in the mind and heart drives Krsna out of our mind and heart. Just as we can only live in a house or room that is clean and orderly, so Krsna only agrees to reside (in a manifest form at least) in a clean environment. So if these impure emotions come into our mind, our mind no longer becomes a suitable residence for Krsna. I hope these little meditations are helpful to you.

Hoping you are well.
With best wishes,
Hridayananda das Goswami

Haribol Spirit Souls!
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
Below is a very nice letter that was recently written to Srila Acaryadeva with some nice stories from the 70's. Hope you enjoy them....
Your aspiring servant,
Divyananda dasi

Dear Hrdayananda Goswami Maharaja,

This is Udayananda dasa writing to you. There is many things I want to say to you, and wanted to say to you after your recent visit and preaching engagements here.... Many thoughts have gone through my head since then about you, so I thought I would sit down and write you an email and share some of those thoughts with you.

First of all I would like to thank you for all the service you have performed for Srila Prabhupada over the years. You have personally impacted me in my own dedication and commitment to His Loving Divine Grace. The first time we met was back in 1973. I rode with you in a van to Oakland University outside of Detroit, Michigan. We were on our way to a debate with a Professor Bharati, a rogue that had insulted Srila Prabhupada and criticized Prabhupada's disciples for not understanding Vedic philosophy. I remember how intense you were chanting japa as we rode, speaking occasionally about the urgency to assist Srila Prabhupada in preaching vigorously against nirvisesa sunyavadi, voidism and impersonalism, then back to your chanting. The eye of the Tiger look was in your face.

We arrived at the debate with 30 devotees and over 100 students. Since I was from the Detroit area several of my friends actually attended Oakland University and went to the debate. The kirtan before the program was electric and I remember feeling so proud that I was a devotee. Then you systematically dismantled this rascal spinning him in circles and tripping him with his own pathetic illogical reasonning. The knockout punch came when out of sheer frustration and a lack of anything else intelligible to say Mr. Bharati started howling, "YOU'RE A PHONY HRDAYANANDA, YOU'RE A PHONY HRDAYANANDA!!!!!!!......"

You quickly and in a very contained tone replied," Please try to control your senses Professor Bharati."

The entire audience exploded with laughter and applause. The rest was a closing mop up and inspiring finish for both devotees and audience. I was so inspired that I sold 12 Bhagavad-Gitas in the next 30 minutes and collected over $100.00. My non-devotee friends were not only impressed but inspired to each purchase a Gita.

On the way home you were exhilarated. I compared you to Mohammed Ali crushing George Foreman in the "Rumble in the Jungle". You were so energized that you were ready to take on all the Mayavadis and Bogus Yogis in the world. We went back to the temple and the most important event of the entire sojurn of my material existance took place, you performed a agni-hotra yajna and I was initiated Udayananda dasa.

Later on I became the sankirtan leader in Detroit for several years and of course a book distributor myself. One day I was distributing books in an Ann Arbor shopping Mall. I was in karmi clothes and I was wearing a wig. I was having a particularly tough day and I was not getting alot of positive responses. I had been nipped at this location many times so I was running around the parking lot looking for sincere people with one eye, and with the other eye watching out for the security guards. All of sudden I looked up at the Mall sidewalk and saw this glowing saffron sadhu. At first I was certain that it was Narada Muni but to my equal delight it turned out to be His Holiness Hrdayananda Maharaja chanting his japa! I went up to the sidewalk and offered my obeisances to you.You were so surprised that this karmi guy was offering you obeisances you stopped your chanting and looked down on me. Then you saw my neck beads and realized that I was a devotee and this big grin spread over your face and you said, "Just see, our devotees even make the best karmis!"

We then had a very enlivening conversation and you stressed to me the importance of book distribution. I remembered the grey Autumn day and looking at the conditioned souls chasing after their sense gratification like moths into the flame. You preached, "Atato brahmaji jnasa". This human life is meant for self-realisation. Again I was inspired and ended up distributing 30 big books that day by your preaching.

Later in Nov.1977, I had the great good fortune to be in Vrndavana. Srila Prabhupada had just left back to Krsna, and there was a large progam arranged where many of Srila Prabhupada's Godbrothers offered condolences for His departure and some words of praise. Most of their talks were in Hindi or Bengali and so I couldn't fully appreciate what they were saying. Then Tirtha Maharaja spoke in English. It was a very disturbing talk. Without going into the details, he basically minimized Srila Prabhupada and gave all credit to Srila Bhaktisiddhanta. I remember looking around at all my Godbrothers and everyone feeling disturbed at was being said. Afterwards I was standing next to Satswarupa Maharaja and you walked up with a grim look on your face. I had just asked Satswarupa Maharaja what I should be thinking of this talk. Maharaja who was also bothered by it could not give me a satisfactory response to my inquiry. Then you came up, and like Tiger Woods teeing up his driver on the first tee of the U.S. Open, layed into it. You cut to the chase. "Not only was the entire talk bogus and filled with insult with faint praise, but wouldn't it be terrible if we spent the next 50 years of our lives and never did any significant preaching or service to our Spiritual Master."

It was the perfect thing to say at a very troubling time of my life, and I thank you.

In conclusion to this letter, I just wanted to thank you for all the encouragement you have given me over the past 30 years, knowingly or unknowningly. You've given so much encouragement to so many people and it recently dawned on me that maybe most of them, like myself, never stopped to tell you thanks and maybe give you a little encouragement as well. I also did 2 years of service on the Radha Damodara SKP. I also have some wonderful memories of His Holiness Tamal Krsna Goswami. However, I will never in this life, ever get to tell him thank you for all the ways he touched my life. I didn't want that to happen to us. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

Your servant,
Udayananda dasa

Queridos Miembros del HDG Istagosthi por favor acepten mis humildes reverencias
Todas las glorias a Srila Prabhupada! Todas las Glorias a Srila Acaryadeva!

Bienvenidos al Nuevo HDG Istagosthi

Recientemente pasé algun tiempo con Srila Acharyadeva, por eso pensé que podría compartir algunos bocadillos con ustedes.

Srila Acharyadeva está muy delgado, ya que sigue una dieta estricta completamente natural y orgánica. El volvió al peso que tenía cuando iba al colegio secundario de 145 libras (unos 73 kilos aproximadamente)

Su primer libro se encuentra muy avanzado y él cree que podría quedar listo en un poco menos de tres meses.
A partir de las breves descripciones que él nos dio parece bastante asombroso, incluyendo estilos de romance, aventura y crimen entrelazados con una versión occidental de la historia de Dhruva y Filosofía general sobre Conciencia de Krsna.

Realmente, tuvimos una hermosa celebración del 30 Aniversario de sannyasa de SA en el dia de la aparición del Señor Nrsimhadeva en casa de Jagarini DD.
Acharyadeva nos brindó un excitante darshan y luego disfrutamos de una deliciosa fiesta. (Jagarini DD, para todos aquellos que no la conocen es una excelente cocinera y una maravillosa anfitriona).

SA por otra parte, está dedicando parte de su tiempo a explicar la Verdad detrás del término "védico" y la necesidad de que ISKCON regrese a las bases de nuestra ciencia espiritual, excluyendo parte del innecesario bagaje cultural no-Conciencia de Krsna que hemos adquirido. El cree que esto nos otorgará una mucho mejor chance de expandir nuestro mensaje y de convertirnos en la respetada Sociedad que Srila Prabhupada previó.

Su sirviente,
Giridhari Das

Dear Members of the HDG Istagosthi,
All glories to Srila Prabhupada! All glories to Srila Acharyadeva!

Welcome to the new HDG Istagosthi.

I just spent some time with Srila Acharyadeva, so I thought I could share some tidbits.

Acharyadeva is very fit, following a strict all natural/organic diet. He’s back to his High School weight of 145 Lbs.

His first book is very well advanced and he believes could be ready in as little as 3 months. From the brief descriptions he gave us, it sounds pretty amazing, involving romance, adventure and crime all interwoven with a western audience version of the Dhruva story and general KC philosophy.

We had a really nice 30th sannyasa anniversary celebration, on Nrsimhadeva’s appearance day, at the house of Jagarini DD. Acharyadeva gave us an exciting darshan and later we had a delicious feast (Jagarini DD, for those of you who don’t know, is an excellent cook and a wonderful host).

He’s also dedicating some of his time to explaining the truth behind the term “vedic” and the need for ISKCON to get back to the basics of our spiritual science, shedding some of the unnecessary non-KC cultural baggage we have taken on board. He believes this will give us a much better chance at getting our message across and making us the respected society Prabhupada envisioned.

Your servant,
Giridhari Das
