Hare Krishna Dear Candramauli Swami Maharaja.
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!!!.
I hope you are fine in every way. I wish you a very happy 2015.
I’m always thinking of you and always remember your instruction to do programs in Chilean prisons.
I am writing to you because yesterday we had a very nice preaching program in the prison for women in San Miguel, Santiago Chile. This program was attended by 22 devotees and more than 100 prisoners, besides the guards and members of the police.
We started the program with some classical Indian ragas with Sitar, Santoor, mrdanga, Kartalas, Tambura, tabla, etc. I’ve realized that this is a very good strategy to start programs because it calms the mind of the audience and creates an atmosphere of goodness that helps us to prepare the atmosphere.
I am dedicated to studying the sitar for over 10 years and in 2012 received a scholarship from the Embassy of India to continue my studies in India. That year I met you personally in Sri Dham Mayapur Dham. Now we have a musical group called “Krishna Sambandha” and together we are going to prisons, hospitals, orphanages, etc., along with other members of the community.
After the ragas, yesterday we presented bhajans with Maha Mantra and devoted performed an act of magic levitation. The prisoners were very impressed. Then we teach them to chant the Maha Mantra and there was a great kirtan.
They danced and sang, everyone was very happy, even the guards and police did not stop smiling. A group of prisoners took a guard to dance with them, was transcendentally hilarious.
All prisoners ate cookies prasad and received a book of Srila Prabhupada.
If Krishna wants, we will continue doing this program regularly. I stood awhile because of a serious illness to my sympathetic nervous system that left me for several months without walking, but now thanks to Krishna I’m much better with more spirit than ever to keep going.
Someday we might plan a visit from you to Chile, would be wonderful !!! it could be maybe this year 2015, December is the best time to make programs, would you like to? what is your opinion Maharaja?
My wife Indira Jahnava DD and I are sending you all our obeisances.
Please Maharaja tell me if I can serve you in any way and please give me your blessings to overcome my anarthas.
with love and admiration
Your eternal servant
