Newsletter: Waiting for Inspiration

There is a condition known as writer’s block, when an author loses inspiration to produce new work or experiences a creative slowdown. I don’t have that! I am working on the second codex of the varnasarama series. However, I have not felt direction as to which of the Krsna in Vrndavan books I should embark on next, as there are multiple options. The idea has also come up to do something else, shorter, along the lines of Sadhavo. I am waiting for Radha-Syamasundara’s inspiration. I would like to embark on a new project as I don’t feel complete when I am not writing directly about Krsna, something that has been an integral part of my life for the last twenty years. However, the structure for Codex 2, a very detailed one, is complete, and when that book is in print, I believe it will be a real practical asset to devotees and to envisioning the structure of varnasrama.

In the meantime I am making last preparations to leave Mayapur, which has been a source of spiritual inspiration in so many other ways. Living in Rasamrta-kunja, the housing project on the bank of the Jalangi, is really like living in a grove of nectarean mellows.

Some good news for Hungarian devotees is that Nalini-kanta has informed me that the fourth volume of the Hungarian Nava-vraja-mahima will be in hand before Christmas. Fantastic! And while the English NVM is out of print, it is available as an ebook. So for those devotees who have been asking how to get the set—they are available on the internet. Also, devotees can see below the links for another series of pictures that I have just titled.

Now, for some nectar. Here is something from Manu-samhita that will empower ladies and make men sit down: In listing many pure personal and household items Manu says that the mouth of a woman is pure. He doesn’t say everything that comes out of their mouths is pure. But the organ itself is.
