Wandering Miscreants

Hare Krsna! Hare Rama!    The North and South American Tour continues rolling the waves of the Sea and the Wind from the mountains. We were able to do more incredible programs in Buenos Aires (BsAs), and then got into the Aluminum Weiner and flew to Kaur Do Ba. Ambaris and Madhavendra Puri met us there. Then they were joined by their supernatural wives and babies (who all howl and laugh 28-times a day (the babies not the Mothers)).

MPD and Mataji, just finished a great suburban-country ashrama. It is great. About two acres with a resident fox. He eats Prasadam and there is a truce – We don´t kill his children, he doesn´t kill ours.

Walked in the neighborhood in the footsteps of Bh. Bhusana Swami to the chorus of millions of house dogs. Throw bread not rocks.

Full morning and evening programs.

We lived in the attic, like a tree house. Had to swing down on ropes.

Several devotees came for the evening and morning was on line.

Health as been great.

We are getting more and more light-

Our life airs are becoming lighter, stronger and dancing!!!???

Program at a PACKED yoga institute (over 50-people) on Jung and the Bhagavata with Prof. Maximillian Peralata. Sunday Feast. Home Program at M. Sushila Devi Dasi Ashrama. Man people much potential.

Made rough filming of our exercise routine: Hanuman Goes to Lank, not for everybody.

Back in the AW and on to Mar de Plata (Google it). Hour in transit in BsAs. Nobody was really alive. They were all like plastic zombies. Tried to meet people and teach.

Here in MdP we had a packed, packed, packed, turning people away program at a beautiful castle by the sea organized with the municipality. Then a BIG university program that got advertised incorrectly by the Medical School so only 55-people showed up instead of the expected 400, Psychology and the Sacred, but good people!   One lady very happy and big administrator in the University. With here, we, Nikunja et al, will develop Art and the Sacred for the Fall.

Daily programs at the Govardhana village here. We ride to MDP daily for the programs with Pancha-tattva, Adi-yajna, Mangala-ananda and Vijaya Das.

Never seen a more beautiful Temple-Chapel than here. Competes with Barcelona.

Right now we are fighting a fever. No surprise.

You can see little time for Bog letters but we do answer the URGENT ones.

Got teeth cleaned –They are tough and good.

Had full eye check for new glasses – No cataracts and no glaucoma and stigmatism is really small.

YOGA!   Even a Stupid Ass can dance and kick at 70-years old.

O.K  Gotta finish this KDh and start packing for trip back to Rome, BsAs in thirty minutes.

Guru-tattva

www.jayarama.us/kd/guru-tattva.txt

We are still slowed to almost a standstill in reviewing the Annual Reports. Our eyes can only handle so much computer screen any day, but we will persist.

In spite of all this travel and preaching, or even because of it, we are chanting 16-enthusiatic rounds and usually eating fruit in the morning and saving our porridge for lunch.

We are not Sampradya Acharyas. We still have many desires for Science Fiction, mystical powers, but we are struggling to put the KRSNA book first!!

Uncle Gismo

www.jayarama.us/kd/ug.htm

When you pack, first pack, prepare body, bath.. Then dress, then your NOI around the neck bag, bead bag. Then carry on bag and brief case. Kiss the Blue Baboon goodbye and get in the car with your brief case behind your legs. Chant one Mantra for each telephone pole on the way to the airport and have an ecstatic dialog with the driver.

When you bath in the morning wash you dhoti and uttaria the same time and they will be dry even after the morning program if the room is warm. Was little cold and damp in MDP.

$$$ - ASA

Next issue. Also, Abhirama Das and NIOS Lima should are going to send a financial report to the Blog for the $5000 from the USA and what has been spent and what is due for the Jesuit program and then the rest will go to Palika Devi Dasi to be our treasurer.

Piggy’s Parting Pearls.

It is 16.28. In two minutes we must pack for trip to BsAs. We downloaded the Art and Sacred movie to Bhakti Elite 3x and need to review Dr. Chakraborty’s article to see if is understandable to and English speaker. Bad recording!!
