ISKCON NOIDA

REPORTS

1) At the outset, I aware that that I am quite senior in material age but equally aware that I am an infant in spiritual domain.Be it so, whatever little progress I have made on spiritual ladder is due to your cause less mercy and of all devotees.

2) With particular reference to WHNF, it was indeed a program of life time remembrance.Japa Retreats were very refreshing and made me aware of the need for constant course- correction during chanting if mind tries some mischief. Though Guru Maharaja, you have been guiding us on improving quality of our japa but kind of hands on practice during Japa Retreats were of immense help.

3) My numbers of rounds remained 24 everyday (16 +8 for dear Gurudev’s well being). Once or twice I could add 2 rounds to my daily numbers. The immediate effect of Retreats was to add about half to a minute more for one round. This helped me better uttering of all syllables of the Mahamantra. I could , sometimes succeed in getting in the mood of submission, humility and my total frailty.

4) With your blessings Gurudev,I could do 72 rounds on 23/9/20, the Japathon day; the focus and attention was much better.

5) I continued to read CC including trying to read the texts in Bengali, SB, Madhuraya Kadambini and at least a part of Prabhupada some small book. I tried to attend at least 3 of 4 evening programs.Great job done by Kirtan Ministry Team,Guru Maharaja.

6) Gurudev, I tried reaching out to my contacts for videos and I could upload + 70 videos.I am still making efforts but that steam has gone.

7) This week, I was rather in some contemplative mood. I became more aware that Krishna in His aspect as Pramatma shall certainly guide me to remain on correct spiritual path and Guru Maharaja, you as His representative will always hold my hands so that I don’t go astray. I pray at your Lotus Feet dear Gurudev that my this realisation becomes more and more strong day by day.

8) Maharaja, how can I thank you for engaging all of us in this beautiful and divine movement; at least I was not qualified at all for association of such self realised aachaaryas.
