761220 - Letter to Gopal Krishna from Jagadisha
December 22, 1976
Dear Gopal Krishna Prabhu,
Please accept my humble obeisances. I am in receipt of your letter dated 12-12-76.
I have read your whole Letter to: His Divine Grace and the following is an account of His remarks.
About the cox and Kings three day trip to Vrndavana, He said “nice work”. Regarding teaching other kinds of yoga, so that we may advertise an 8 or 9 day course for tourists, Prabhupada liked the idea. He said, “That will be very attractive. Other types of yoga are mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita. We can adopt that. Three or four men I can teach how to do it. Then you’ll be able to attract them. I can teach how to sit down, posture, asana, pranayama, without any difficulty. The yoga system as mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita we can take up, that will be bhakti-yoga, Use one or two of the big rooms in the Gurukula building. I can teach the teachers how to practice.” You, Sarvabhavana, Dhananjaya and Mahavira were mentioned by Prabhupada as prospective teachers. About the Earthquake conference, Prabhupada said, “That’s nice, very good. Regarding holding up printing due to lack of funds, He said, “Don't hold up printing, money will be provided.”
Regarding Gurudas Prabhupada said, “Gurudas’ work in Poland is more important. So, if you actually require an assistant, I’ll give you one very good assistant. When, I go to Bombay I shall arrange for that. Will Gurudas go to Vrndavana to live at Radha Damodara at least for one week as an experiment? That’s all. Hoping this meets you in good health.
