Prabhuji.. thank you so much.. using the search engine at prabhuapdabooks.com works very well and is so easy.. so what did I find?
Ekadasi is used to refer to two fasting days observed by devotees and these days occur on the eleventh day of the waxing and waning moon though I couldn’t find out why this fast is observed beyond scriptural dictates.
Kirtan is any activity of reading, chanting, listening while remembering Krishna but used more specifically as chanting the Maha Mantra either publically or privately.
Japa, too, is chanting of the Holy Names of God.. however, there is a difference between Kirtan and Japa, which is that chanting within the mouth so that only the chanter can hear is Japa and chanting loudly so others can hear is Kirtan.
Finally, Mangol Aroti was a challenge and produced no information. This turned out to be a mis-spelling. Correctly spelt, it is Mangal Arati and seems to be early morning prayers to the Deity.. Sri Krishna. There was no further indication of what prayers or if this just referred to the early morning congregational gathering to chant Kirtan or Japa.. just an event that was mandatory to the devotional routine at the Temples.. perhaps you can elucidate for us?
There you go.. Daniel’s research problem solved.. thank you for this help… Hare Krishna .. Daniel

Hari Krishna, Sri Madhudvisa..
Since my last post is still awaiting moderating, please indulge me in an additional question? What is the significance of adding ji to a name as from Brahma to Brahmaji? Thank you, your servant .. Daniel

Hare Krishna, Sri Madhudvisa..
I awoke this morning finding that there are a few terms brought up by a couple of letters and replys in this letter on The Power of Disciplic Succession about which I have a lack of knowledge and informational resources.
The little list that I hope you will clarify are these: Mangol Aroti, Hare Krishna kirtan, chanting Japa, ekadasi.. I thought I had a good source for understanding until I used it to look up.. param para which was loosely translated.. supreme philosophy, but which you used, I believe, as disciplic succession.. though they could be used interchangeably.
Is there a good online dictionary that you would recommend for research as we read and listen to these teachings? Is there possibly, also a Concordance of Terms drawn up for the Bhagavad-gita?
I have a good guess at the meanings of some of those terms but clarity is appreciated… thank you for your time and efforts.. your servant.. Daniel
