Sri Krishna Janmastami 2017 Message from His Holiness Jayapataka Swami

"Lord Krsna comes in every day of Brahma, on the 28th dvapara yuga, each Brahma’s day has a 1000 catur-yuga. Krsna comes in a 28th…
We are very fortunate to be present 5000 years after Krsna’s appearance.

And His appearance, His activities are all transcendental. Someone knows the appearance and activities about Krsna is transcendental, they never have to take birth again. So, we are observing Janmastami tomorrow. Today we had “adhivasa”, the celebration a day before. Our temple (Mayapur) was packed up with people. Then they chanted a song that says “anander-sima-nay” – there is no limit to the transcendental bliss. “nirananda-dure-jay” – and the unhappiness driven far away. So, we want you tomorrow to experience unlimited happiness and drive your sadness far away. Hare Krsna!

Tomorrow is a good day! Chant rounds! Read the Krsna book, and absorb yourself in Krsna conscious activities and thoughts.

Hare Krsna!"

Hare Krishna! My Dandvat pranam to Guru Maharaj,

All Glories to Srila prabhupad, All glories to Guru and Gauranga,

Dear Guru Maharaj Reading every day about your health enlightened me deep in my heart that you are already with Krishna whether you are in this body or not. But Krishna also wants you to be with your disciples and guide them to follow you and reach the final destination. So He always protects you and will protect in the future also to take all fallen souls back to god head. My prayers to Krishna is let me serve my guru maharaj (you) in life after life. I am not qualified to serve Krishna but because of his blessings and your mercy I want to serve you only.

Your Servants Servants,

Amrit Gobind das

Happy Krishna Janmastami.

The Sri Krishna Janmastami celebrations began o 21st August in Mayapur with the adhivas ceremony to Sri Sri Radha Madhava astasakhi's before a full temple of enthusiastic devotees joyfully performing kirtana. Jananivas Prabhu and other pujaris offered the adhivas and I touched all the items for offering to their Lordships.

Next day there were classes in Bengali and English with two speakers each from 6:30 to 8:30am. First class I was asked to give in Bengali and second in english. Jananivas prabhu gave also English class. Second Bengali class was given by His Holiness Gouranga Prema maharaj.
English lectures and also festivities are broadcasted on

Then we had deity darshan of Pachatatva and Sri Sri Radha Madhava in their new red,crimson outfits with some parts black with golden leave . Prahlad Nrsinhadeva were dressed in white.

Rest of the day will be samskaras, festivities and abhishek.

I hope you can visit your nearest temple on this auspicious day.

I hope this finds you healthy & happy,

July 3th we participate in 40th anniversary of Rathayatra in Kalkata. Lord mayor of Kalkata came along with some famous people. 40 years ago I started the rathayatra on the order of Srila Prabhupada and it has grown since then. Along with rathayatra there should be a long week festival total is 9 days, which we will observe in Kalkata. This year the festivities are held in park near Park street. 41 years ago we had festival in similar place and Srila Prabhupada was very pleased. May you all bask in the blessings from Jaganath, Baladeva ,Subhadra and Sudarshan cakra.


I hope this finds you healthy & happy,

My dear UK devotees. Please accept my best wishes and greetings!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I am sending you blessings from Mayapur dham where we celebrated the appearance of lord Nrsimha. Today and yesterday. Yesterday we had the oil abhishek of Lord Nrsimhadeva. This is a seva that pujaris do and I also do. Pujaris offering sarva Ausadhi oil. We are offering ashta gandha and pushpa gandha oils. Lord Nrsihadeva was covered by sandal wood paste during chandan yatra. Deitie was very dry so oils are use to cool the Deity. I use to have it same day. While bathing the Lord and Prahlada maharaj oils are captured by pujari assistance. Oil is kept for distribution.

On the 15th evening they had the adhivas ceremony.

On 16th was holly day of Lord Nrsinhadevas appearance. Both temple rooms were packed. I gave Bengali class from 6:30 till 7:30 and I was scheduled to give english class from 7:30 to 8:30. After the classes the Deities greetings was held. Prahlada Nrsinhadeva, Pancha Tattva, Radha Madhava Astasakhis, Radha Madhava Mayapurchandra where Madhava was dressed as Lord Nrsinhadeva. The adhivas is a ceremony where 26 auspicious items are offered. After the darshans there was Srila Prabhupadas gurupuja and than there was homa jagna for about 3 hours. From noon to 3 pm there was initiations. Lord Nrsinhadevas abishek started at 4pm and lasted till about 6:30pm. Charanamrita was distributed to everybody.

There was broadcast by .

We hope that the Nrsinha caturdasi was blissful for all of you Nrsinhadeva is known for destroying the obstacles.

I hope this finds you healthy & happy,

 Your well-wisher always,

Estimados Diksas, Siksas, Refugiados, Aspirantes a discípulos y

Por favor acepten mis bendiciones y buenos deseos. 
Todas las Glorias a Srila Prabhupada! 

Mi oficina en Mayapur, comúnmente conocida como "JPS Office", fue creada principalmente para facilitar a mis discípulos (diksa, siksa, refugio, y aspirantes) y bienquerientes, que me ayuden en mi servicio a Srila Prabhupada y ayudarles a progresar así en su conciencia de Krishna

Quiero informar a todos ustedes que como yo ya no suelo viajar extensamente debido a mi estado de salud, deseo intensificar las actividades de mi oficina en Mayapur. Queremos aumentar sobre todo la comunicación. 

El año pasado en Noviembre asistí a Sri Ksetra Parikrama en Puri. Durante esta estancia en Puri, desarrollé una infección en la pierna. Cuando llegue a Australia, la infección se diagnosticó como MRSA. Primeramente visité Perth, a continuación, Melbourne y finalmente, cuando llegué a Sydney, fui admitido en un hospital. Los devotos de Australia cuidaron bien de mí. Esta hospitalización fue una regresion para mi terapia regular. Cuando volví a la India, visité Coimbatore para un tratamiento Ayurvédico. Esto aceleró el proceso de curación de la infección. A continuación, llegué a Mayapur para las reuniones del GBC. Después de las reuniones del GBC tuvimos el Festival Anual de Gaura Purnima . Este año hemos tenido cuatro grupos de Parikrama: Internacional, Ruso, Hindi y Bengalí. Hindi ha sido una nueva adicion este año, puesto que tenemos un gran número de devotos que hablan Hindi y visitan Mayapur para el festival. Fui capaz de visitar los cuatro sitios de parikramas todos los dias. Mi discípulo Mahavaraha das ha escrito informes detallados del parikrama. Pueden leerlo al visitar    www.jpsdis​ (http://www​.jpsdiscip​

Después del festival de Gaura Purnima, fue que participé en el Safari anual. Este año los devotos viajaron a Gaya, Kurukshetra y luego a Vrindavan. Yo fui directamente a Kurukshetra y luego viajamos juntos con el grupo del Safari a Vrindavan. Tuvimos una breve escala en Delhi, donde asistimos al Rathayatra de Noida y otros programas de predica. Desde Vrindavan, el grupo del Safari fue a Jaipur, Siliguri y finalmente regresó a Mayapur. Fui a Gauhati, mientras que el equipo de Safari fue a Jaipur. Entonces me reuni de nuevo con el grupo del Safari en Siliguri. 

Después de Siliguri, volvimos a Mayapur para celebrar Rama Navami y mi Vyasa Puja. Tuvimos una gran asistencia al Vyasa Puja este año y debido a esto los lideres mayores del JSSS tienen previsto agilizar la organización del festival de Vyasa Puja a partir del próximo año, para poder facilitar la visita de los devotos de manera mas eficiente. Después de mi Vyasa Puja fui a Tirupati para asistir a la CPI, India RGB y otras reuniones. En el último día de mi visita allí dí las iniciaciones.

Actualmente estoy en Coimbatore sometido a una terapia ayurvédica para desintoxicar mi cuerpo especialmente teniendo en cuenta el hecho de que tenía una infección de MRSA. He escrito una detallada carta de mis actividades comenzando con el Safari y terminando con mi llegada de Coimbatore. Se ha publicado hoy esta conferencia en www.jpsdis​ y también se publicará enwww.jpsoff​

Aquí en Coimbatore, todas las noches a las 7:00 pm IST (Hora Local de India) doy una clase en línea que se transmite en vivo en

Subject: Marathon message
My dear Temple leaders,

Please accept my blessings! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I know to have a successful marathon it takes cooperation.

I am writing to the Sankirtana devotees, Temple devotees and congregation
members to wish them a happy Srila Prabhupada book distribution marathon.

I am thinking about them and praying for them when I go before Srila
Prabhupada, Sri Sri Prahlad Narasimha, Sri Sri Pancatattva and Sri Sri
Radha Madhava that they will do well on Sankirtana and distribute many of
Srila Prabhupada books.

Srila Prabhupada said when he hears his books are being distributed he feels
energetic like a young man.

Even though I am physically challenged yesterday I distributed 108 Bhagavad
Gitas in the Mayapur Temple room as part of my marathon effort.

Srila Prabhupada asked me 10,000 big books and 100,000 small books which is
about 20,000 book points per month. So any help to achieve or exceed my goal
I will be very grateful and it will be deeply appreciated.

I hope this finds you healthy & happy,

Your well-wisher always,

Jayapataka Swami

Approaching the Spiritual Master

Sometimes when a devotee is in trouble and I ask why they did not contact me earlier in order to help them, they reply, "I didn't want to bother you." Of course it would be wonderful if all disciples never had any difficulty and could simply fully dedicate all their thoughts words and deeds to helping the guru and his mission. But that is the goal. The reality is that the disciples may require help at certain stages of their spiritual life. It is not a botheration to the spiritual master- it is the purpose of being a Spiritual master, to help the disciples when in need. Just as there is a saying in English "A stitch in time saves nine," and there is a similar one in Bengali samay madhe silai korlei suchate hoy na, that if you sew in time, you don't have to worry later. In other words before a problem becomes serious or aggravated, it should be immediately taken care of. After all, it is the duty of the disciple to approach the guru, when in need. I don't know if this can be emphasized too much. The scripture says take the calf goes after the cow for milk. It is the disciple who needs to approach the guru, when in difficulty. It is certainly great causeless mercy if the guru goes and saves the disciple without being asked.

Perhaps a disciple is serving in a temple and one day disappears or leaves without telling anyone where he is going. It is physically very difficult, if not impossible, for the Spiritual master to find out what actually happened, where the disciple is.

So long as, by your prayers, Krishna is keeping me in this planet, what is the reason for having spiritual confusion when anyone can contact the spiritual master through email, fax, phone or letter or by personal contact by coming there where I am. Whenever you are in difficulty you can get instructions from the spiritual master, and resolve it. If someone is facing the danger of gradually reducing his KC commitments or breaking regulative principles, or even worse, if he already entangled, then he should certainly approach the spiritual master and get rid of his Maya, by taking help from the beloved Spiritual Father. I will be very happy if I can help my spiritual sons and daughters for remaining fixed up in Krishna consciousness. The most pleasing thing to me is that everyone develops pure love of Krishna in this life time and serve Sri Krishna eternally in transcendental devotional service.

I hope that this finds you in good health.

Your ever well-wisher

Jayapataka Swami.

61st Vyasapuja message
Hare Krishna!!!

Obeisances to His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupad!

Hari Bol!!!

The vyasa puja celebration is normally held in Mayapur but this time I am holding it here in Los Angeles because I am taking a treatment to regain my motion, my independent movement. So I like to wish all the devotees around the world my blessings on this Vyasa Puja day. We know that the Vyasa Puja is the celebration of the appearance of the guru, as the representative of
Vyasa deva and all the previous acharyas. So through the guru we worship all the previous acharyas. Simultaneously we offer the bhoga to the deity and to the Guru. So in this way we celebrate the Vyasa Puja.

I am very concerned the disciples carry on the mission of His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada which is my mission and that they can take up the preaching spirit with great enthusiasm. I am very greatful for the devotees who helped in serving me and doing this all through one year and for me it is a great austerity not being in Mayapur as that is my Gurudatta desh. But I understand that this is the desire of GBC and devotees
and I.... to take the theraphy.

So please Chant Hare Krishna, follow the regulative principles and worship Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. We heard from Srila Prabhupad, how the devotees, how the people, how the western world, the eastern world, all over the world that the people are into good karma and bad karma, but no one or very few are into devotional service. So what we want to do is to invoke the mercy of Lord Chaitanya upon all of them. So that they can get pure bhakti awaken in their heart. Everyone has pure bhakti but this like dormant. So through the devotees we want people to take the opportunity to make full use of this human form of life and to chant Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. In this way they can do the greatest benefit for the fallen souls in this kali yuga.

Also we know that one good fragrant flower in the forest can give the good name for the whole forest, so like that in the parampara one good disciple will glorify the whole parampara. So His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupad because he took this message around the world he has created a very good name for the disciplic succession following Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. So we all must be very careful to do the same thing to be a good example of His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, I dont feel myself so qualified but I am trying; I am trying my best and I want my disciples, wellwishers, like god brothers, god sisters like everyone also try to do what they can to carry on Srila Prabhupada's mission. This is my primary message.

61sst Vyasapuja message.contd...

But I like to speak better but I am not fully recovered yet. So I am very happy that disciples and devotees all over the world abserving the Vyasa Puja with enthusiasm and I hope that I will be soon able to recover enough so that I can travel and visit all the disciples and all the devotees in various parts of the world. But primarly I want to spend most of my time in India and in Asia which is my Gurudatta Desh but sometimes also visit the Latin America and also other parts of Europe and other parts of America and australia and I like Africa.

I would like to also remind the devotees that this time we want to keep ISKCON integrity very strong. We want to keep ISKCON united, there are enemies who are always trying to divide ISKCON by trying to take off the devotees but we know that Prabhupada wants us to stay together and to stay united. So lets all try to remain very much together serving His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and I am sure that the other senior devotees will be evry happy to extend all the support for you. Here they were very encouraging to me and this is very moving to me that to see how all the God brothers are very much support to me at this time when I am trying to recover from very serious attack.

So I need all your cooperation to very strictly follow the Krishna Conscious system and in a regulation and in this way make best use of the human life. We want to go where ever Srila Prabhupada is and to help him in the sankirtan movement but while we are here let us try to do something for His Divine Grace. Always work together and in this way we can we can make the best use of we came to this material world by doing something. Atleast we can save one person and he can go back to krishna and the whole mission according to Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvathi Thakur will be a success.

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
