All Glories to Srila Prabhupada
All this is new to me. I have been distributing the 1986 Second Edition Revised and Enlarged copys og Bhagavad Gita as it is. Is that not bona fide after all? The divine nectar of distributing Prabhupada’s books is certainly felt everytime someone takes a book and gives some donation. And in the evening in the reading hours it is like the Shatras are talking to me instead of me reading them. How could this be possible if they were not bona fide any longer?
help me understand

Yes, this example put in here with the postman is so true. I myself had not stayed for more than two or tree months in the Embassy of Vaikunta before I went with the sankirtan devotees up and down the coast and mountains to distribute the shastras in the towns and villages, so you can imagine that I was not a learned scholar in any respect(as I still am not!). Powered only by the unconditioned mercy of the devotees and by a drop of Krishna’s grace was it possible for me to make anyone take some books. Many times I didn’t even have to open my mouth to speak my sankirtan mantra to make people take. I did only have to look at a soul and the person would ask me how much to give. These experiences made me realize more and more the power of the preaching mission. As long as one sticks to the instructions given by the pure devotees and the spiritual Master, nothing is impossible. For the postman to know the adress and the name of the recipient so he/she can deliver, he/she only has to know how to read. This is one of the great wonders of this harinam sankirtana preaching mission. Dear Madhuvisa dasa, Thank you again for giving these classes, I don’t think this one is too long as it is so full of nectar.
Ki Jay. Hare Krishna

Thank you so much for your classes and for taking time to answer the questions. Krishna is the Father of all ,and then he apears as a small child on this planet. One has a different way of tending to a child than to a farther. Naturally one want to protect and serve the child, and the father is often the one one comes to for protection. This mysterious tranzendental way of Krishna to apear is so wonderful.
Thank you again for sharing your divine knowledge
All Glories to Srila Prabhupad

Pamho ,Madhudvisa dasa .
It’s with great pleasure I recieve your lessons-letters. It’s a real inspiration. When I chant on my japabeads the mind many times wanders off into the mundane. Your electronic preacing helps me more to greet every bead like one of the Gopies of Vrindavan. The meditation gets a lot easier. In the chapter 18 text 66 of the Bhagavad-gita As It Is, Krishna says :”Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinfull reactions. Do not fear.” This verse is of uttermost importance today as there is so much turmoil and fighting in the name of religion as it’s never been since the great battle on Kuruksetra. I can hardly wait untill everybody on the earth in every town and village has gotten this message and understands it in their hearts. Meanwhile I will eagerly consume the nectar of your letters and pray for your health so as to keep up this great work.
Gauranga Haribol !

Pamho,All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
Yes ,this is so wonderfull. I think Krishna let the internet be invented just for the Shastras to be even more available all over the planet now. And for people living in desolated areas can also have the nectar of Srila Prabhupada’s books. Personly I have great joy listenig to the nectar from the first soundclip and at the same time following the text in my own copy. But you must have another edition than the one I have, since there is some slight differences in the text. I have both the 1972 edition and the second edition printed in 1986. Is there really a brand new edition now? Can you tell me a little about that? I will keep downloading all these classes in great excitement.

In my younger days when I was fit and healthy and going out on the sankirtana book distribution carrying a bag of Shastras on my shoulder and a pile of books in my hands(I found that carrying a big pile was very effective to impress the public people so they’ll take some books), I took to exercise my inner belly muscles with situps and a method called Pilates. Then an older sankirtan devotee told me to stop and do that as to not get too attach to my body. I did follow his advise. I stopped doing all exersice. So after some years my back and left knee started to hurt a bit.Later after some more years one day my back just gave in and got what the doctors call a prolaps in the lower spine. My left knee got all stiff too. A very painfull and slow healig condition that I still struggle with. I know this is my own karma from the past coming back to me. As it is today,I cannot walk around with anything heavy in my hands, nor can I walk for long on flat roads. I get a bit sad about it sometimes and thinking I should not have listened to that devotee and what he told me even when he was only wishing me well. Than still my muscles would have been strong enough to carry a full grown fat man, not to speak of a pile of books. I have accepted my condition and I am not complaining about it, but I do think about this devotee sometimes and I feel I am making offence when I think like that. Anyway I do regret that I didn’t close my ears only for that certain moment and kept on doing my training thing. So it is important to think for oneself sometimes and not only follow blindly the advice of wellwishers. Krishna has special lessons for everyone in person, no doubt.
Ki Jay . All Glories to Srila Prabhupad.
