20127-8月爱的篇章

BB 哥文达·斯瓦米

 

72

 

再见了,在过去几天亲切款待我们的萨拉托夫优秀的奉献者们。星期天有极其美好的坛车节而昨天是挤满房间的公众节目。我最大的感谢所有参与节目的奉献者们。现在进入红色的马自达汽车,花另外78个小时行驶在萨玛拉公路上。哈瑞奎师那!!

 

73

 

施瑞拉·帕布帕德说

 

在内心冥想至尊人格首神的形象的程序和唱颂主的荣耀或主的逍遥时光是一样的,没有区别。这叫阿迪瓦亚-雅格亚:没有区别,绝对的。要么你唱颂,聆听,或者你试图看见你心中的至尊主——是同样的事情。

 

唯一的区别是聆听和专注于主的逍遥时光比一个人在内心观想主的形象更容易,因为一旦一个人想到主,特别在这个年代,心意变得不安,而且由于有这么多的烦恼,在内心看见主的过程会被打断。

 

假设一个人是一位大商人。他总是想着他的生意,怎样销售这个,怎样购买那个。他的心意全神贯注于这些事情。所以如果他坐下来冥想主,那是不可能的。不可能的。他的心意受到干扰,而他想他的商业交易。那是很自然的。

 

但是如果你大声地唱颂哈瑞奎师那,你将被迫去聆听“奎师那”并且奎师那马上被迫来到你的心中。

 

所以这是比坐下来冥想奎师那更好的过程。

 

76

 

我已经到达古辛斯基音乐节的现场,一个三天的民间音乐节在伏尔加河畔举行。萨玛拉奉献者们在整个庆祝活动区域搭建了漂亮的帐篷,然后我们将在里面进行许多克依尔坦和哈瑞纳玛。哈瑞奎师那  来自古辛斯基!!

 

一直唱颂到午夜,与茹阿提和阿肯查纳坐在一起分享我们的人权运动报道—哈萨克斯坦危机时刻的故事。遇见许多虔诚的灵魂。凌晨二点钟了而吟游诗人们还在歌唱。从古辛斯基祝大家晚安。

 

凌晨二点上床睡觉早晨六点极其热情的西伯利亚值得尊敬的玛塔吉们在打扫隔壁的帐篷破坏了睡眠。是应该称颂西伯利亚玛塔吉们的奉献精神该诅咒的睡眠。

 

79

 

凌晨三点睡觉...六点醒来...中午十二点从萨玛拉起飞...十八点从莫斯科起飞。在阿姆斯特丹(荷兰首都)等待去英国的利兹市(英国城市)的航班。不知怎么的这让我想起儿时的一首歌曲...“紫色雾霾在我的脑海中...

 

710

 

今天早上我参加了利兹大学的毕业典礼,在这段时间里来自毛里求斯的普瑞曼佳丽·戴薇·达茜获得她的哲学博士学位。允许我谦卑地请求我的朋友们转达他们对普瑞曼佳丽仁慈的外士那瓦祝福和美好的祝愿。她是茹阿吉寇玛尔博士...穆茹阿瑞·古普塔帕布的女儿。这次完成了她在利兹九年的深入研究学习。不久她将返回毛里求斯。哈瑞奎师那并祝贺普瑞曼佳丽!!

 

713

 

施瑞拉·帕布帕德的门徒泰佳斯·达萨把这篇回忆录送给我而我想和您一起分享——给瑞茹阿佳·斯瓦米

 

施瑞拉·帕布帕德在197612月期间花两个星期访问了海德拉巴农场(印度南部城市)。

 

他对这个项目抱有很多希望并且分配三位管理受托人——玛哈姆萨·斯瓦米,韩萨杜塔·斯瓦米和我自己——使项目持续发展。不幸的是,因为理解错误,偏执,和控制欲望,在玛哈姆萨·斯瓦米与我们两人之间存在很大的误解。

 

有一天,为了寻找安慰,指导和鼓舞,我们都——分别地但在同一准确的时刻——到达施瑞拉·帕布帕德房间的门口。当我们进去的时候,我们对我们看到的情景感到惊讶;太阳穿过窗户照射进来,施瑞拉·帕布帕德沐浴在金白色的阳光之中。他的眼睛坚定地闭着但是很自然不紧张,他笔直地坐在桌子后面在他的垫子上,右手在他的念珠袋里。你能够看见他是多么聚精会神地用手指在拨弄着念珠而且能够听见在手指间摩擦时发出的咔嗒声。你甚至能够看出它们周围的念珠布袋在轻微地响动。

 

他的脸是平静安详的,但是每一个迹象表明他在专注聆听圣名,当他在唱颂——哈瑞 奎师那 哈瑞 奎师那 奎师那 奎师那 哈瑞 哈瑞 哈瑞 / 茹阿玛 哈瑞 茹阿玛 茹阿玛 茹阿玛 哈瑞 哈瑞——他的舌头卷曲在口中而嘴唇呈圆形在转动。他似乎从头至尾小心地咀嚼,尽情享受品尝着什么美味佳肴。

 

他的念诵是独特的,单词发音清楚清晰而且压在每一个音节上。他的脑袋从一边到另一边摇摆稍微有点上下运动。

 

同时,我们三人把手插入我们的念珠袋加入他神圣优美的佳帕。至少当时,我们是团结的并超然于我们之间的分歧。

 

作为兄弟,我们一起睁大眼睛看着他,因这罕有的视觉美景而喜悦。

 

一段时间以后,施瑞拉·帕布帕德睁开眼睛过了一会儿并没有移动他的头,一个接着一个温和但是严肃地看着我们,说,“只是继续念诵然后你们所有的问题都会解决。”

 

714

 

在倾盆大雨中到达莫斯科!!非常怪异的夏天!!

 

715

 

我们刚才有了一种惊人的体验...我的意思是神奇的。

 

二艘游艇,装满大约2500位客人和奉献者在莫斯科河上进行一个夜晚的克依尔坦巡游。

 

我乘坐的游船至少有1500名奉献者和客人,可能是一半客人一半奉献者。我们大约在21:30开始唱颂然后我在01:00结束歌唱。游船将继续航行到05:00.

 

这是莫斯科的巴克提·阿南达·奎师那·哥斯瓦米玛哈茹阿佳令人惊异的首创。

 

巴克提·阿南达·奎师那·哥斯瓦米 克依 佳呀,莫斯科地区 克依 佳呀,哈瑞 纳玛 桑克依尔坦 雅格亚 克依 佳呀!!

 

719

 

乘坐俄罗斯航空公司2108航班去维尔纽斯(立陶宛共和国首都),很快在波罗的海夏季音乐节品味非常美妙的圣人联谊。暂时告别俄罗斯地区优秀的奉献者们。感谢你们大家令人感动的关心和热情的俄罗斯式的款待...特别对我们的主人丹尼斯和斯维塔说再见了,谢谢你们,并希望尽快见到你们!!

 

721

 

昨天晚上到达立陶宛,住在一个美丽的名叫“希姆波立”的地方...天堂楼卡风格的地方。今晚将举行克依尔坦而且我想所有的研讨会和克依尔坦正在玛雅普电视上直播...哈瑞奎师那!!

 

723

 

波罗的海音乐节已经结束。我们来到立陶宛考纳斯市。明天05:20我们乘坐飞机去斯德哥尔摩(瑞典首都)连接挪威的特罗姆瑟港口城市,然后去郎伊尔市。我们将和北极熊举行两天的佳帕静修...在极地山脉长途步行。来自莫斯科的丹尼斯和斯维塔将加入我们。如果你们看见任何北极熊尽情享用一位老年斯瓦米的新闻消息,你们就能够知道它们一定唱过了“玛哈 普萨达姆 哥文得” !!哈瑞奎师那并从考纳斯祝大家晚安。

 

724

 

今天我行走和念诵了许多小时。

 

我穿得严严实实抵挡寒冷和北风...就这样,天空尤其清澈我能看见北极山脉。但是很可惜,没有北极熊。我真的经常被北极燕鸥袭击。它们在六月份从极地大块浮冰飞落在斯瓦尔巴群岛。交配,产蛋,孵出雏燕,到九月份飞回大冰块。如果你不当心它们就会在你的头顶上啄一个洞!!今天是长长的散步念诵并且非常平静安宁。实际上看见了许多种类的北极鸟类来到这里度过交配季节...但是唉,没有北极熊!!

 

725

 

亲爱的朋友们...记得几个月前我报道过我亲爱的神兄弟之一,来自南非的夏玛拉帕布因为疾病可怕发作被送往医院。嗯,他似乎从那状况反弹但是他的短期记忆已经衰落。昨天他被送往医院进一步检查。我和他讲话然后他谦卑地祈求所有的外士那瓦们原谅他如果他曾经犯下过任何冒犯,并且恳请所有的奉献者为他祈祷使他能继续服务。我谦卑地请求你们所有的人为夏玛拉祈祷...他是一位优秀的外士那瓦...一位极好的朋友...对于他的家庭他是一位难得的好父亲和好丈夫。我总是告诉夏玛拉说如果我再次投身我想他成为我的父亲因为对子女来说他是超级好的父亲。请大家...祈祷祈祷祈祷!!

 

726

 

今天,泰佳斯帕布,我的第一任庙长,印度的一位先驱传教士,一位多年的朋友,正在密西西比州的新塔拉宛附近某地进行心脏手术。允许我谦卑地请求我的朋友们向主奎师那供奉许多祷文看管和照顾这位施瑞拉·帕布帕德的优秀年老和高级资深的门徒。除此之外...他开创了他为奎师那烹饪的学科。结果施瑞·茹阿戴总是在厨房指导着泰佳斯的手...愿她今天在手术期间引领外科医生的手以至于一切都完美成功。泰佳斯帕布 克依 佳呀!!

 

728

 

我刚刚得到消息夏玛拉帕布已经离开手术室现在在重症监护室。允许我谦卑地请求你们大家继续为他的健康祈祷。

 

谢谢你们...

 

哈瑞 奎师那 哈瑞 奎师那 奎师那 奎师那 哈瑞 哈瑞

哈瑞 茹阿玛 哈瑞 茹阿玛 茹阿玛 茹阿玛 哈瑞 哈瑞

 

82

 

亲爱的朋友们,请为夏玛拉帕布祈祷。

 

他的活组织检查显示,他有一个非常大而严重的脑部肿瘤。

 

我们和夏玛拉帕布昨天拜访了肿瘤医师,医生感到吃惊的是,一个人拥有如此巨大的肿瘤还像夏玛拉一样健康……主要的异常是他的短期记忆缺失。

……

她说,肯定有“神的干预”在发生。

 

夏玛拉帕布预定下星期一开始放疗和化疗治疗。希望这样可以减缓和收缩肿瘤,希望让他在我们中间多呆几天时间。

 

他出生在纳巴兑帕并在17岁时加入益世康。他是那个年代益世康在印度的许多美国人中间的一位年轻人……施瑞拉•帕布帕德经常会叫夏玛拉进入他的房间并且告诉他,

 

 “千万别担心,我总是会亲自照顾你的。”

 

请所有人对施瑞拉•帕布帕德祈祷,在夏玛拉帕布生病期间请他继续他的个人关照。

 

夏玛拉也告诉我,他唯一的愿望是生生世世服务施瑞拉•帕布帕德和外士那瓦,他继续要求所有的外士那瓦们原谅他,如果他曾经在他们的莲花足下做出过任何冒犯。

 

夏玛拉帕布 克依 佳呀!!

 

另外...圣巴克提·柴坦尼亚·斯瓦米明天到达,在返回西伯利亚之前看望夏玛拉几天,圣因卓杜姆纳·斯瓦米星期一早上到达并住几天时间而圣巴克提·查茹·斯瓦米星期四到达。

 

夏玛拉星期一开始治疗。他将接受脑部放疗和化疗。请大家为夏玛拉和他的家人祈祷。

 

84

 

昨天我们和夏玛拉一起吃中饭并且晚上在他家举行了克依尔坦。他的心情很积极而所有他考虑的是关于他在美国的女儿赶快回家陪伴他的可能性。今天我们又一次在他家克依尔坦。请大家继续保持为夏玛拉和他家人的祈祷。

 

85

 

夏玛拉·达斯说

 

tadera carana-sebi-bhakta-sane bas, janame janame hoy ei abhilas。”我唯一的愿望是我生生世世能够服务这些外士那瓦。

 

阿努茹阿达·希瓦南达评论说,

 

BB 哥文达·斯瓦米是朋友们中的首领。完美的朋友。昨晚的节目是令人心碎和快乐的组合。我觉得我变了。变得积极。我祈祷我能够接受他的友谊和爱的心境。

 

86

 

昨天一群老朋友和夏玛拉帕布及他的家人一起沿着德班海滨地区散步。午餐后我们在苏尼尔·莫汉家休息了一会儿然后在施瑞· 施瑞· 茹阿达· 茹阿达纳塔庙宇参加高茹阿·阿尔提。我唱颂了主尼星哈祷文然后是哈瑞奎师那,后来夏玛拉接着克依尔坦。他带着充满坚强,稳定和奉献的嗓音歌唱...卡尔塔斯(乐器)伴奏保持着完美的节拍。我们晚上八点钟结束然后回家。

 

他的脑部放疗化疗今天开始。

 

允许我谦卑地请求我所有的朋友们为夏玛拉帕布和他的家人祈祷。

 

今天早晨圣因卓杜姆纳·斯瓦米来看望夏玛拉帕布和他的家人并住上几天。

 

哈瑞 奎师那 哈瑞 奎师那 奎师那 奎师那 哈瑞 哈瑞

哈瑞 茹阿玛 哈瑞 茹阿玛 茹阿玛 茹阿玛 哈瑞 哈瑞

 

8 7

 

今天夏玛拉为了治疗剃光头发...这是他的妻子第一次看见他剃着光头。(笑)

 

夏玛拉,巴克提•柴坦尼亚•斯瓦米,茹阿玛•哥文达•斯瓦米,我和一群大约20位奉献者进入帕克兰区医院放射科看即将到来的一天是什么样。

 

夏玛拉套着热塑料面罩来固定他的头在他辐射治疗的时候...开始。当治疗师问他是否有任何过敏,夏玛拉抬头说,“我有一个大的过敏...我总是对冒犯外士纳瓦过敏。”

 

在他的面罩适合他以后,他接受了脑部扫描。

 

直到他的治疗实际开始前还有几天时间。请每一个人为他和他的家人祈祷。

 

圣因卓杜姆纳•斯瓦米和高茹阿•巴克提来了。我们大家在一起吃中饭然后夏玛拉回到家里。今天晚上圣巴克提•柴坦尼亚•斯瓦米和圣因卓杜姆纳•斯瓦米将在夏玛拉帕布家举行克依尔坦。

 

很难过我今晚必须离开德班而且离开夏玛拉的联谊我有点心痛欲裂。当我告诉他我要走了,他表达出他极大的爱和感谢...并且叫我去传扬施瑞拉•帕布帕德的运动。

 

夏玛拉帕布  克依 佳呀!!

 

88

 

二十四小时长时间旅行之后我和夏玛·哥帕拉,维佳亚·茹阿迪卡和温达文·比哈瑞到我家了——温达文。

 

89

 

亲爱的夏玛拉帕布...按照你请求我做的,我向神像供奉了鲜花。哈瑞奎师那...哥文达·斯瓦米

 

今天,按照夏玛拉帕布的吩咐,在茹阿吉博嘎·阿尔提之后我去庙宇并代表他向神像供奉了花环。

 

在施瑞拉·帕布帕德的萨玛迪我向他供奉了一个大的茉莉花环然后说道,

 

亲爱的施瑞拉·帕布帕德,请接受我卑微的顶拜。

 

夏玛拉帕布已经要求我告诉您,他永远不会忘记您的莲花足,他将永远...能够服务您,如果他在奉献服务中曾经犯过一个错误,请您仁慈地原谅他。

 

然后我去高茹阿·尼太,奎师那,巴拉茹阿玛,茹阿戴·夏玛那里并为每一位神像供奉一个花环还做了同样的祈祷。

 

然后阿迪凯萨瓦,我们来自德班的普扎瑞从施瑞玛提·茹阿达茹阿妮手中赠送了我代表夏玛拉帕布接受的这个莲花花环和花束。

 

允许我请你们大家继续为夏玛拉帕布和他的家人祈祷。

 

哈瑞奎师那!!

 

这就是我代表夏玛拉帕布被赐予的来自茹阿戴·夏玛的花环和来自施瑞玛提·茹阿达茹阿妮手中的花束。(下图)

(高茹然吉·戴薇·达茜写给BB哥文达·斯瓦米,

 

夏玛拉是多么幸运的灵魂拥有像您这样一位如此忠心耿耿和真正的朋友。)

 

好消息...佳那维(夏玛拉帕布的女儿)平安地回到南非和她充满爱的家人团聚了。夏玛拉帕布和全家人带着浓浓的爱意去飞机场迎接。我这边...我正坐在一架阿斯塔纳航空公司的飞机上准备起飞,从德里到阿拉木图去看望给瑞茹阿佳并和所有的奉献者庆祝湛玛施塔弥。(笑)

 

坚信奎师那的话语,好的东西绝对不可能被其他任何事物压倒,这整个现状一直是一个真实的教训。对大家说哈瑞奎师那!!

 

(施瑞·查茹阿·达萨写给BB哥文达·斯瓦米,所有荣耀归于您古茹戴瓦!您坚持不懈的努力得到了回报。因为您佳那维才能够和她的父亲在一起。您把不可能完成的任务变成完成了的任务。

 

焦希拉·嘎吉佳尔·达斯写给BB哥文达·斯瓦米,对一位身体不好的兄弟,您作为哥哥树立了极好的榜样,表达出真正的同情,爱和关心。您为他唱颂,让他和您一起唱颂并且提醒他想起施瑞拉·帕布帕德。谢谢您玛哈茹阿佳。我爱您并把您看作是我的一位希克沙古茹。祈祷尽快见到您。)

 

(顺达瑞·茹阿达·达茜写给BB哥文达·斯瓦米,我们很幸运地体验到您无限的仁慈。我们在南非想念您。)

 

今天晚上和帕尔塔-萨茹阿提帕布绕着湖泊步行佳帕。在新的神坛上朝觐了给瑞茹阿佳。现在我躺在床上,望着窗外哈萨克斯坦布满星星的天空同时听着蟋蟀始终如一的嗡鸣声。我祝愿我所有的朋友们度过喜悦的施瑞·奎师那湛玛施塔弥。愿我们都得到祝福带着爱和奉献服务施瑞·奎师那。从阿拉木图对大家说哈瑞奎师那。

 

810

 

愿我所有的朋友们度过令人愉快的施瑞·奎师那湛玛施塔弥。愿你们总是记住奎师那...并且永远不要忘记他!!

 

812

 

“胜利!胜利!胜利了!

 

我看见极其美好的事情:生物所有不吉祥的东西被催毁,没有人再下地狱,亚玛茹阿佳再没有工作可做并且卡利年代的影响已经停止存在。这是因为全世界越来越多主维施努的奉献者在唱颂他的名字同时舞蹈并伴随演奏乐器。”

 

纳玛拉瓦尔(圣哲),迪维亚—婆罗班达,提茹瓦摩里(Tiruvaymoli,泰米尔语韦达经) 5.2.1

 

813

 

昨天晚上我和圣巴克提·查茹·斯瓦米,苏尼尔·莫汉帕布,施瑞·穆尔提·戴薇·达茜和佳那维·戴薇·达茜通话。他们与少数夏玛拉帕布非常亲密的朋友一起展开了长时间的讨论。全家已经决定着手一项非常精确的自然治愈夏玛拉帕布癌症肿瘤的治疗。

 

我想请求我所有的朋友们保持他们对夏玛拉帕布和他家人的祈祷。

 

哈瑞 奎师那!!

July 2

 

Good Bye to the wonderful devotees of Saratov who have kindly hosted us for the past few days. There was a wonderful Rathayatra on Sunday and a packed house public program last night. My greatest thanks to all the devotees involved. Now .... into the Red Mazda for another 7 or 8 hours on the road to Samara. Hare Krishna !!

 

July 3

 

Srila Prabhupada Speaks ...

The process of meditating on the form of the Supreme Personality of Godhead within oneself and the process of chanting the glories or pastimes of the Lord are the same. There is no difference. This is called advaya-jnana: no difference, absolute. Either you chant, hear, or you try to see within your heart the Supreme Lord—the same thing.

 

The only difference is that hearing and fixing the mind on the pastimes of the Lord is easier than visualizing the form of the Lord within one's heart, because as soon as one begins to think of the Lord, especially in this age, the mind becomes disturbed, and due to so much agitation, the process of seeing the Lord within the mind is interrupted.

 

Suppose one is big businessman. He is always thinking of his business, how to sell this, how to purchase that. His mind is absorbed with these things. So if he sits down to meditate upon the Lord, it will not be possible. It will not be possible. His mind will be disturbed, and he will think of his business transaction. So that is natural.

 

But if you chant Hare Krishna loudly, you will be forced to hear "Krishna" and that Krishna immediately comes within your mind by force.

 

So it is better process than sit down and think of Krishna.

 

July 6

 

I have arrived at the site of the Grushinski Festival, a three day folk music festival on the banks of the Volga. The Samara devotees have created a nice here and we'll be doing lots of Kirtan in our camp and Harinama throughout the festival area. Hare Krishna from the Grushinski !!

 

Chanted till midnight, sat with Rati and Akincana sharing stories of our human rights campaigns post-Kazakh crisis time. Met so many good souls. 2 AM and bards are still singing. Goodnight from Grushinski.

 

Went to bed at 2 AM ... Ultra-zealous Siberian devotional matajis cleaning the tent next door kills the sleep at 06:00. Blessed be the devotion of the Siberian matajis ... Cursed be the sleep.

 

July 9

 

Slept at 03:00 .. Awoke at 06:00 .. Flew from Samara at 12:00 .. Flew from Moscow at 18:00 .. Waiting in Amsterdam for a flight to Leeds, UK. Somehow this reminds me of a song from when I was a kid ... "purple haze is in my brain ..."

 

July 10

 

This morning I attended the graduation ceremony at the University of Leeds, at which time Premanjali Devi dasi from Mauritius received her degree of Doctor Of Philosophy. May I humbly request my friends to convey their kind vaisnava blessings and good wishes upon Premanjali. She is the daughter of Dr. Rajkomar ... Murari Gupta prabhu. This completes her 9 years of intensive study in Leeds. Soon she will be returning to Mauritius. Hare Krishna and congratulations Premanjali !!

 

July 13

 

Srila Prabhupada’s disciple Tejiyas dasa sent me this remembrance, and I thought to share it with you. –Giriraj Swami1

 

Srila Prabhupada visited the Hyderabad farm for two weeks during December 1976. He had a lot of hope for the project and had assigned three managing trustees—Mahamsa Swami, Hamsaduta Swami, and myself—to get it going. Unfortunately, due to miscommunication, paranoia, and a desire for control, there were big misunderstandings building up between Mahamsa Swami and the two of us.

 

One day, looking for solace, direction, and inspiration, we all—separately but at the same exact moment—reached the door to Srila Prabhupada’s room. When we entered, we were astounded by what we saw: The sun was shining through the window, bathing Srila Prabhupada with golden-white rays. His eyes were firmly closed but without strain or tightness. He sat upright behind his desk, on his cushion, his right hand in his bead bag. You could see how attentively he was fingering the beads, and you could hear their clacking as he rubbed them between his fingers. You could even see the bag’s cloth rustling around them. His face was serene, but there was every indication that he was fixed in hearing the holy name. As he chanted—Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare—his tongue rolled in his mouth and his lips moved in a circle. He seemed to be tasting something delicious, chewing it with care to savor every bit. His chanting was quite distinct; the words were clear and articulate, and he pressed down on each syllable. His head swung slightly side to side with a bit of an up-and-down movement.

 

 Simultaneously, all three of us thrust our hands into our bead bags and joined His Divine Grace in japa. At least for the moment, we were united and transcendent to our differences. Together, as brothers, we watched him with wide-open eyes, delighting in this rare vision. After some time, Srila Prabhupada opened his eyes for a moment and without moving his head looked gently but seriously at us, one after the other, and pronounced, “Just go on chanting and all your problems will be solved.”

 

July 14

 

Have arrived in Moscow in torrential rain !! Very weird summer !!

 

July 15

 

We just had an amazing experience ... And I mean Amazing!!

 

Two cruise ships, filled with approximately 2,500 guests and devotees went for a night kirtan cruise on the Moscow River.

 

The ship I was on had at least 1,500 devotees and guests, probably half guests and half devotees. We started chanting around 21:30 and I finished singing at 01:00. The boats will continue sailing till 05:00.

 

This was the amazing initiative of Bhakti Ananda Krishna Goswami Maharaja of Moscow. Bhakti Ananda Krishna Goswami Ki Jai, Moscow Yatra Ki Jai, Hari Nama Sankirtan Yajna Ki Jai !!

 

July 19

 

 On Aeroflot 2108 to Vilnius, soon to relish very wonderful sadhu sanga at the Baltic Summer Festival. Bye Bye for the time being to great devotees of the Russian Yatra. Bolshoi Spasibo for all your kind attention and warm Russian Hospitality ... Especially bye bye to our hosts Denis and Sweta, thank you, and see you soon !!

 

July 21

 

Reached Lithuania yesterday evening. Staying in a beautiful place called "Simboly" ... sort of a Svarga-Loka styled place. Will have kirtan tonight and I think all seminars and kirtans are being broadcast on Mayapur.TV ... Hare Krishna !!

 

July 23

 

The Baltic festival has concluded. We have come to Kaunas, Lithuania. Tomorrow at 05:20 we have a flight to Stockholm, connecting to Tromso, Norway, then to Longyearbyen. We'll have a two day japa retreat with the polar bears ... taking long walks in Polar Mountains. We'll be joined by Denis and Sweta from Moscow. If you see any news updates of polar bears feasting on an old Swami you can know they must have chanted "Maha Prasade Govinde" !! Hare Krishna and goodnight from Kaunas.

 

July 24

 

Today I walked and chanted for many hours. I was well bundled against chill and wind ... and low and behold, even the skies cleared and I could see polar mountains. But unfortunately, no polar bears. I did regularly get attacked by Arctic Terns. They fly down from the Polar Icepack to Svalbard in June, mate, lay eggs, hatch the chicks, and fly off to the icepack by September. If you are not careful they will peck a hole right in your head !! Today was long walking, chanting, and quite peaceful. Actually saw many types of Arctic birds down here for the mating season ... but alas, no polar bears !!

 

July 25

 

Dear Friends ... Remember a few months back I reported how one of my dear god-brothers, Shymlal Prabhu, from South Africa was taken to the hospital following a terrible seizure. Well, he seemed to bounce back from that but his short term memory has been fading. Yesterday he was readmitted to the hospital for further testing. I have spoken to him and he is humbly begging all vaisnavas to forgive him if he has committed any offences and he is humbly requesting that all devotees please pray for him that he can continue service. My humble request is that all of you please pray for Shyamlal ... he is a wonderful vaisnava ... a wonderful friend ... a wonderful father and husband for his family. I always have told Shyamlal that if I take birth again I want him as my father because he has been a super father for his family. Everyone ... Please ... Pray Pray Pray !!

 

July 26

 

Today, Tejiyas prabhu, my first temple president, a pioneer preacher in India, a friend for many years, is having open heart surgery somewhere near New Talavan in Mississippi. May I humble request my friends to offer many prayers to Lord Krishna to watch over and care for this wonderful, very old and senior disciple of Srila Prabhupada. Among other things ... he initiated he into the science of cooking for Krishna. As Sri Radhe has always guided Tejiyas prabhu's hand in the kitchen ... may she guide the surgeon's hand today that all will be perfectly successful during the operation. Tejiyas prabhu ki Jai !!

 

July 28

 

I have just received news that Shyamlal Prabhu has been moved from the operating theatre and is now in ICU. May I humbly request all of you to continue in your prayers for his well-being.

 

Thank you all ...

 

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

Dear Friends, Please offering prayers for Shyamlal Prabhu.

 

His biopsy has shown that he has a very large and aggressive brain tumour.

 

We visited the oncologist with Shymalal yesterday and the doctor was startled that a person with such a large tumour is as healthy as Shyamlal is ... and that the primary abnormality is his loss of short term memory.

...

She said that there is definitely "divine intervention" taking place.

 

Shyamlal prabhu is scheduled to begin radiation therapy and chemo therapy next Monday. Hopefully this may slow and shrink the growth of the tumour and hopefully allow him to spend a few more days among us.

 

He was born in Nabadwipa and joined ISKCON at 17 years of age. As he was such a youngster among of many Americans at that era of ISKCON in India ... Srila Prabhupada would often call Shyamlal to his room and tell him,

 

"Never worry, I will always take personal care of you"

 

All of you please say a prayer to Srila Prabhupada that he continue with his personal care to Shyamlal Prabhu during this time of his illness.

 

Shyamlal has also told me that his only desire is to serve Srila Prabhupada and the vaisnavas birth after birth, and, he continues to request all vaisnavas to forgive him if he has ever committed any offences to their feet.

 

Shyamlal Prabhu Ki Jai !!

 

PS ... His Holiness Bhakti Caitanya Swami is arriving tomorrow to visit Shyamlal for a few days before returning to Siberia, His Holiness Indradyumna Swami will arrive on Monday morning for a few days, and His Holiness Bhakti Charu Swami will arrive on Thursday.

 

Shyamlal begins his therapy on Monday. He will receive radiation to the brain and chemo. Everyone please keep Shyamlal and his family in your prayers.

Yesterday we had lunch with Shyamlal prabhu and in the evening we had kirtan at his home. His mood is very positive and about all he thinks about is the chance for his daughter in the USA to hurry home to be with him. We'll have kirtan at home again today. Everyone please keep Shyamlal and his family in your prayers.

HH BB Govinda Swami is the king of friends. The perfect friend. Last night's program was a combination of heartbreak and joy. I felt changed. Left changed. I pray I can imbibe his mood of friendship and love.

Yesterday a group of old friends took a walk along the Durban beachfront with Shyamlal prabhu and his family.

 

After lunch at Sunil Mohan's house we had some rest and then attended the Gaura Arati at Sri Sri Radha Radhanatha Temple. I sang the Nrsingha prayers and then Hare Krishna, and Shyamlal then took over the kirtan. He sang with a strong, steady, devotion filled voice ... keeping perfect ti...me with the kartals. We ended at eight pm and returned home.

 

His brain radiation therapy and chemo therapy begin today.

 

May I humbly request all of my friends to continue with their prayers for Shyamlal prabhu and his family.

 

This morning HH Indradyumna Swami arrives to visit with Shyamlal prabhu and his family for a few day.

Today Shyamlal shaved up for his treatment ... It was the first time his wife had ever seen him with a shaved head :)

 

Shyamlal, Bhakti Caitanya Swami, Ram Govinda Swami, I, and a cast of around 20 devotees entered the radiology department of Parklands Hospital to see what the day had in store.

 

Shyamlal was fitted with a thermo-plastic mask to keep his head in place when his radiation treatment ...begins. When the therapist asked him if he had any allergies, Shyamlal looked up and said, "I have one big allergy ... I am always allergic to offending vaisnavas."

 

After his mask was fit he underwent a brain scan.

 

It will be a few days till his therapy actually begins. Everyone please keep him and his family in your prayers.

 

HH Indradyumna Swami and Gaura Shakti arrived. WE all had lunch together and Shyamlal returned home. Tonight HH Bhakti Caitanya Swami and HH Indradyumna Swami will have kirtan at Shyamlal Prabhu's home.

 

I sadly must leave Durban tonight and I'm a bit torn to leave Shyamlal's association. When I told him I am leaving he expressed his great love and thanks ... and told me to go and preach Srila Prabhupada's movement.

 

Shyamlal Prabhu Ki Jai !!

Dear Shyamlal Prabhu ... I offered flowers to the deities as you asked me to do. Hare Krishna ... Govinda Swami

 

Today, on the instruction of Shyamlal Prabhu, I went to the temple after the Rajboga Arati and offered flower garlands to the deities on his behalf.

 

I offered a big jasmine garland to Srila Prabhupada in his samadhi and I said,

 

Dear Srila Prabhupada, please accept my humble obeisances.

 

Shyamlal Prabhu has requested that I ask you that he will never forget your lotus feet, that he will forever...be able to serve you, and if he ever made a mistake in his devotional service that you kindly forgive him.

 

Then I went to Gaura, Nitai, Krishna, Balaram, Radhe Shyam and offered Them each a flower garland and made the same prayer.

 

Adikesava, our pujari from Durban, then presented this lotus garland and bouquet .. from the hand of Srimati Radharani, which I accepted on behalf of Shyamlal Prabhu.

 

May I ask you all to please keep Shyamlal Prabhu and his family in your prayers.

 

Hare Krishna !!

 

 This is the flower garland from Radhe Shyam and the bouquet from the hand of Srimati Radharani that was given to me on behalf of Shyamlal Prabhu.

What a fortunate soul shyamlal is to have such a loyal and true friend.

 

Great news ... Jahnavi made it safely to SA and is reunited with her loving family !! Shyamlal Prabhu and the entire family went to the airport for a very love-filled meeting. On my side .. I am sitting in an Air Astana plane ready to take off from Delhi to Almaty to see Giriraja and celebrate Janmastami with all of the devotees :) This entire current situation has been a real lesson in faith in Krishna's words that good can never be overcome by anything else. Hare Krishna to all !!

 

Sri Charana Dasa: All Glories to You Gurumaharaj! Your perseverance has paid off. Jahnavi can be with her father because of you: you turned mission impossible into mission accomplished!

 

Joshila Gajjar Das: You are setting a super fine example of an elder brother showing true compassion, love and care for a brother who is not so well. You were chanting for him, made him chant with you and also reminded him of Srila Prabhupada. Thank you Maharaja, I love you and take you as one of my siksha gurus. Pray to see you soon.

 

Sundari Radha Dasi: We are blessed to experience your boundless mercy. We miss you here in South Africa.

 

Walked around the lake this evening chanting Japa with Partha-Sarathi Prabhu. Had darshan of Giriraja on his new altar. Now laying on my bed, looking out the window at the Kazakh sky filled with stars, and listening to the consistent drone of the crickets. I wish all my friends a joyful Sri Krishna Janmastami. May we all be blessed to serve Sri Krishna with love and devotion. Hare Krishna to all from Almaty.

Victory ! Victory ! Victory !

 

I behold something wonderful: all the inauspiciousness of the living entities is destroyed, no one is going to hell, Yamaraja has no more work to do and the effects of Kali yuga have ceased to exist. This is because all over the world an increasing number of Lord Visnu’s devotees are singing His names while dancing and playing musical instruments.”

Yesterday evening I spoke to HH Bhakti Charu Swami, Sunil Mohan Prabhu, Sri Murti DD and Jahnavi DD. They had had a long discussion together with a handful of Shyamlal Prabhu's very close friends.

 

The family has decided to embark upon a very exact nature cure for cancer tumours in the treatment of Shyamlal Prabhu.

 

I'd like to ask all of my friends to keep up their prayers for Shyamlal and his family.

 

Hare Krishna !!
