Each Repeated Reading of the Gita, Things Become More Clear

Dear Sridhara-syama dasa
Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I am very happy and encouraged by your letter received today. This time of lockdown is challenging such that there is no movement from our cells. Food is scarce and showers only every few days. I was concerned at the outset that you might make an empty trip and wanted some way to notify you but certainly by now you know to call before coming to this unpredictable place.

A Change is Really Taking Place in Me.

Dear Bhakti-lata,
Hare Krsna!
All glories to Srila Prabhupada! All praise to IPM!
Please accept my humble respects and obeisances.

Thank you for your letter dated 1-10-11. There really is no way for me to fully express my appreciation for your time and especially patience in writing me, answering my questions, and providing me with so much good KC information. Your letters are always filled with so much information and are very much looked forward to. Your love of Krsna and the strength of your convictions are evident and I feel especially blessed by the Lord to be in your association. I’m sure this seva can be very frustrating, at times, especially when the same questions are asked, again and again. If I do this, please accept my apologies.
First, let me say that I did indeed receive the very nice calendar. Also I received the Caitanya-caritamrta, and the copy of On Chanting Hare Krsna. This is FULL of good, sweet nectar, a real asset to my japa. In fact, it answered a question I had on my mind the same day I got it in the mail!

Dear Bhakti-lata, Hare Krsna!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

Hope all is going well for you. I’m still here in segregation but I’m safe and that’s what’s important. [My present] cellie is a very negative person but at least he’s not a bully. Practicing KC has gotten me to a point that I don’t even hate those

9-4-10: With KC, I Can Embrace My Situation

Dear Bhakti-lata, Hare Krsna!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
Please accept my humble respects and obeisances.

I hope everything is well for you, mataji. My KC grows and flourishes with our correspondence and your letters are truly worth the wait.

Well, I never imagined it would be so difficult to practice my KC here [a new institution]. Chaplain H. hates KC. He more or less alluded to the fact that he was going to have me sent to the hole [solitary] if I persisted in trying to practice KC in the chapel. Chaplain R. is much more enlightened. It’s been so discouraging and my KC has suffered as a result.

9-11-10: I love the Butter Thief

Please accept my humble respects and obeisances.

You asked about the Krsna book, what is my favorite pastime up to now. I really like the “butter thief.” In fact, it is one of the pastimes that bring tears welling up in my eyes. I know that for those who do not “get it”, that the idea of a person relating to God as a friend, parent, or lover is appalling. Some would even see it as blasphemous! I actually feel badly for these blind folks. God can be so much more than a “father”, (a Santa Claus), though Father is accurate as well. No, I understood perfectly how a person could
