Pranam My Dearest Ashok Prabhu.  Hare  Krishna.
I missed you.
May you receive transcendental blessings and grace
and mercy; health and strength  and  understanding;
peace and love; harmony  and  wisdom;  insight  and
intuition and inspiration from the God of Gods; the
Lord of Lords; the King of Kings; the God of love; the
Original Bhagavan; the  Supreme Personality of Godhead,
Lord Krishna. I offer my respectful obeisances unto Him.
To spot an opportunity in life, one needs to cultivate
mindfulness, which simply means paying attention to 
what is happening right now. Mindfulness means that
one does not get lost in thoughts  about what might
happen tomorrow  or what did happen yesterday. Instead,
one gives undivided attention to whatever one is doing
right now. May Lord Krishna grant you success in Krishna
Consciousness and protect you and fill your life with simplicity
and humility; appreciation and gratitude; patience  and
perseverance; kindness and generosity; compassion and 
forgiveness; courage and enthusiasm; devotion, dedication
and determination. With love and best wishes, take care, bye.
Radhe Radhe.

Pranam My Dearest Ashok Prabhu. Hare Krishna.
May you receive transcendental blessings, grace and mercy from
the God of Gods, the Indestructible Lord, the Knower of everything,
the Lord of Immeasurable Power, the Supreme Personality of
Godhead, Lord Krishna. The stage in which the consciousness of
the living entity is attracted by the three modes of material
nature is called conditional life. But when that same consciousness
is attached to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, one is situated
in the consciousness of liberation. When one is completely cleansed
of the impurities of lust and greed produced from the false
identification of the body as "I" and bodily possessions as "mine",
one`s mind becomes purified. In that pure state he transcends the
stage of so-called material happiness and pleasure. At that time
the soul can see himself to be transcendental to material
existence and always self-effulgent, never fragmented, although
very minute in size. In that position of self-realization, by practice
of knowledge and renunciation in devotional service, one sees
everything in the right perspective. He becomes indifferent to
material existence, and the material influence acts less powerfully
upon him. Perfection in self-realization cannot be attained by any
kind of yogi unless he engages in devotional service to the
Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Krishna, for that is the
only auspicious path. In association of pure devotees, discussion
of the pastimes and activities of the Supreme Personality of
Godhead is very pleasing and satisfying to the ear and the heart.
By cultivating such knowledge one gradually becomes advanced
on the path of liberation, and thereafter he is freed, and his
attraction becomes fixed. Then real devotion and devotional
service begin. With love and best wishes, take care, bye.

Pranam My Dearest Ashok Prabhu. Hare Krishna.
May you receive transcendental blessings,
grace and mercy from the God of Gods, the
Greatest of all mystics, the basis of the
Impersonal Brahman, which is immortal,
imperishable and eternal, the ultimate
Supreme Truth, the Source of innumerable
Vaikuntha planets, the Original Bhagavan,
the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord
Krishna, Who  when He is pleased with His
devotee, He  showers  the  devotee  with
unlimited mercy. The devotee becomes
fortunate  and  a  rare  soul. The super-
excellent spiritual emotions of Goloka,
the  highest  transcendental  abode,
manifest within the devotee`s heart. The
devotee becomes an eternal resident of
Goloka Vrndavana in the spiritual sky even
while residing on the earth planet. The
devotee is never again deluded by the
material energy. Also by engaging in
devotional  service, the  devotee  is
automatically  decorated  with  good
qualities. These manifest in the devotee
automatically and become the devotee`s
constant companion. With love and best
wishes, take care, bye.

Pranam My Dearest Ashok Rao Prabhu. Hare Krishna.
I am happy to hear from you.
May the golden-complexioned Lord Caitanya
Mahaprabhu, Who rose from the ocean of
Mother Saci`s womb as a most illustrious
moon to churn the nectar ocean of the
topmost devotional mellows, spread the rays
of His mercy in your heart. May Lord Krishna,
Who eternally stays in Vrndavana, which is
embellished with many large and attractive
kunjas, place His Lotus Feet, which rival the
beauty of lotus flowers, upon your head. With
love and best wishes, take care, bye.
