Ananta koti Vaishnava vrnda ki Jai!!

Dearest devotees,
Please accept my prostrated dandavats. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev.

Thanks a million for such immediate response from so many devotees.It really shows how much love all my god-brothers and god-sisters have for our guru maharaj and attachment to Srimad Bhagavatam!!

Incidentally the first mail I got was from H G Subhadra mataji. Thanks a lot mataji for your immediate response. I was hearing a lot about your grace from our gurudev during my visit to Singapore. Maharaj was saying how you were driving all the way from San diego to Alachua with your three kids facing so many difficulties. Maharaj was also saying how you were trying so hard to give some Lakshmi to him and it ended up in him giving some donation to you, which someone gave to maharaj just then. Maharaj was also saying one of the most interesting thing that your grace was maharaj's first initiated disciple..!!!!

H G Subhadra mataji ki Jai!!! Patita pavana Srila Gurudev Ki Jai!!

H G Purnacandra prabhu, thank you so much for your enthusiastic response and the Vyasa puja offering, Summary of 5th chapter of 1st canto. That's really nice of you prabhu. I have the audio cassette where our dear god-brothers and god-sisters made their wonderful offerings to Maharaj on the Vyasa puja day and i am soon going to transcribe them to the group.

With all due respects, i request all my god-brothers and god-sisters to share their transcendental realizations in meeting with Srila Gurudev or hearing from other god-brothers and god-sisters or some wonderful points that Maharaj made in some lectures or some casual chats. This is the best medium to discuss the glories and important instructions of one of the purest devotees that we have come across in this lifetime and with whom we are still in touch with. This time in Dwaraka, Maharaj was telling me how nice it will for all his disciples to work together as a unit in sharing their realizations and dig deep into Srimad Bhagavatam - this is the only thing that will please him. Why should we hesitate after hearing these words personally from our Gurudev's Lotus mouth ?

Our Maharaj told us several times that Srila Prabhupada's purports are transcendental. There are some interesting one-liners that we often see in His Divine Grace's purports that is 'punching' in nature and is worth remembering. I found quite a few of them and am planning to send them 3-4 times a week in the name of 'Prabhupada Punch'. I had sent a few to H G Devakinandan prabhu before personally, but am planning to send more of them to the group. I would like you all Prabhujis and Matajis to share your punches and lets feel the transcendental punch of Srila Prabhupada and as Devaki prabhu was telling me once that these punches will wake us up from the lap of the witch maya!

I would like to start with one punch which our Gurudev likes the most...

"Devotional service, which is based on the foreground of full knowledge combined with detachment from material association and which is fixed by the aural reception of the Vedanta-sruti, is the only perfect method by which the seriously inquisitive student can realize the Absolute Truth." - SB 1.2.12 Purport

Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada
