Another devotee warrior in Iraq

Hare Krsna Mitravinda dd,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Simply stated, I will be here well into next year. The length of time spent away makes keeping in contact and association with devotees more important. In the days before I deployed I was in the temple as much as I could be with my wife and family. In fact, the last thing I “did” before leaving a few hours later, was to attend the Sunday festival at New Govardhan/San Diego Temple. I say this because that feeling, that energy stays with you. The beauty of darshan, the sounds of sankirtan, the scent of incense and prasadam, the sincere smiles of devotees, the instructing tongue of disciples and the experience of arati stay with you, reminding you of your spiritual home not just home base. One of my first orders of business upon “settling” in was to set up my altar. Essentially several photos in protectors and on card stock, setting them up was a small victory. Also the daily darshan that several devotee/temple sites offer has been awesome. I seek it anytime I can access the internet and save some when possible. Partha-sarathi’s blog site is great as well.
In your service,
Hare Krsna

Hare Krishna. Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I pray this message finds all in the best of spirit, mind and body.
I wanted to take the opportunity to publicly thank Madhusudan and Kanchanbala for their true kindness, generosity and association in writing this article. I am deeply humbled by their thoughts, words and actions. Since the article was posted, I have received several wonderful messages from devotees around the globe who have shared their love of Sri Krishna, encouragement and support. This is especially meaningful to me as these past few weeks have been very challenging for our unit. Iraq continues to be a very dangerous place. Partha-sarathi dasa shared with me a few days ago that even though we are surrounded by other people, devotionally this place can be very lonely. The association maintained, even via the internet is powerful indeed. My wife Shyamala, often tells me, “We are thankful for this technology to give us the means to communicate as we do.” I will say this, regardless of how you feel about the causes and effects of war, each person over here is a spirit-soul carrying out a challenging duty just like you. We need your spiritual support more than anything. My service is no more or less important than yours. My obstacles are not greater, just different. May we all dispel illusion and see with clear eyes and pure hearts the glory of Sri Sri Radha Krishna.
In your humble service,
Hare Krishna

Sankirtana Nectar in the Army

Hare Krishna Mitravinda devi dasi,

Your post was recommended to me by Dravida dasa at th San Diego temple. As a new devotee and a Marine officer that will be deploying soon to Iraq I wanted to thank and encourage the practice of you and your fellow soldiers. Often times the spiritual preparation for war or military service is overlooked in the haste to make service members physically and materially ready. It is a great service to find and keep Krishna Consciousness as we prepare for these trying times. While “Hurry up and wait” is a mantra often heard in the military, how wonderful it is during operational and training pauses one can recite the Maha-mantra and remember the Lord while others are complaining and lamenting. As Dravida dasa instructed me, he said that the battlefield is an excellent place to preach. Rightfully so as Lord Krishna spoke the Bhagavad-gita to Arjuna just before battle. This point alone has had a tremendous effect on my personal spiritual growth and I’m sure I’m not alone. So while we modern-day ksatriyas dawn our body armor, helmets and weapons, we tuck japa beads into our cargo pockets, carry vinyl Bhagavad-Gitas in our packs, pictures of Lord Krishna, Jagannatha, and Nrsimhadeva under our breastplates and blissfully chant Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna, Krishna, Hare, Hare/Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama, Rama, Hare, Hare.

Your Brother Antony
