Wait Until I Am Dead

My Dear Kavicandra Maharaja,
Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

It is so nice to hear from you!

You have made a wonderful point.

The more we meditate on and vibrate the faults
of others, the more our faults become prominent.

And the more we meditate upon and glorify the
saintly qualities of the devotees, the more we
become the inheritor of those qualities ourselves.

In short, we become like that upon which we
meditate and vibrate.

Hoping this meets you well,
Your eternal servant,

Sankarshan Das Adhikari

A Sporting Chance?

Instead of wasting our time with this ball and Let’s put all of energy into the ultimate ball game, getting the big ball (planet earth) out of the control of the asuras into the hands of the suras. This ultimate sport is unlimitedly exciting. All other sports pale into insignifcance when one develops a taste for this sport.

In this connection at an initiation lecture in Los Angeles on 19 December 1968 Srila Prabhupada was describing as follows the fourth regulative principle:

“And no gambling or unnecessary sporting. People are wasting time. So many sportings they have invented-sporting balls, this ball, that ball. You see? Human life is very short. We do not know when we shall die. Before that, we must prepare ourself for the next life. ”

According to our initiations vows we should not be indulging in this ball and that ball.

The ultimate sport is to wrest the big ball (planet earth) away from the control of the opposite team (the asuras). Anyone who is enlivened by sports is invited to experience the ultimate enlivenment of fully absorbing themselves 24 hours a day in the ultimate sport, the sankirtan yajna.

The results of ordinary sports are inconsequential. Whether one team wins or the other team wins, life still goes on basically in the same way. But who wins the in the sport known as sankirtana yajna, will effect the entire course of world history.

So let us now, all ISKCON devotees throughout the world, put all of our energy into the ultimate sport, the sankirtan yajna, instead of wasting our time with this ball or that ball. By putting 100% of our energy into this ultimate sport we will be able to eventually wrest control of the planet earth away from the atheists into the hands of the theists and thus bring back to planet earth the happy days of Bhagavat Dharma.

Kali yuga Japa Counter!

Srila Prabhupada has instructed us to chant on beads. We have never heard him instructing us to chant on a clicker.

Here are some direct quotes to substantiate this:

“Nowadays people are very much inclined to the meditational process, which is not practical in this age, but if anyone practices meditating on Krsna twenty-four hours a day by chanting the Hare Krsna mantra round his beads, he is surely the greatest meditator and the greatest yogi.”
–from the purport to Bg 9.27

“Please follow the regulative principles very strictly, chant Hare Krsna Mahamantra sixteen times daily round the beads and be happy.”
–from a Letter to: Satadhanya Das — Bombay 30 March, 1971

“When Caitanya Mahaprabhu took sannyasa, His wife, Visnupriyadevi, although only sixteen years old, also took the vow of austerity due to her husband’s leaving home. She chanted her beads, and after finishing one round, she collected one grain of rice.”
–from the purport to SB 4.23.20

“The austerity in our Gaudiya-sampradaya is very simple: following the four principles, restriction, avoiding the offenses, and chanting regular beads. That’s all. And hearing.”
–from lecture on SB 6.3.18 — Gorakhpur, February 11, 1971

“You should chant at least 16 rounds on your beads every day, and avoid the ten offenses to chanting.”
–from a letter to: Yadavananda — London 2 December, 1969

“Our first business to every initiated devotee is to chant daily sixteen round of beads without fail, and to follow the regulative principles rigidly, and our literatures must be studied with great attention. ”
–from a letter to: Jayapataka — 1975 So. La Cienega Blvd. Los Angeles, Cal. 90034 February 13, 1970

“The Governing Body Commission’s duty is therefore to see that every member is following the rules and regulations and chanting sixteen round regularly on the beads.”
–from a letter to: Bali-mardana — Tokyo 25 August, 1970

“Haridasa Thakura chanted 3 lakhs of names each day, that means 16 names in the mantra, 108×16 or 1,728 names in each round of mala, dividing 300,000 by 1,728 comes to roundabout 175 rounds on beads daily.”
–from a letter to: Yajnesvara — Bombay 2 January, 1972
