  1. Krsna! Hare!

  2. Under the Japa Tree (rev. 31 May 2007) 2007 May 12 Festival of Inspiration ISKCON New Vrndavana Founder Acharya His Divine Grace Srila A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada Hanumatpresaka Swami ANJANA SUTA ACADEMY WWW.JayaRama.US

  3. We may have a different point of view, But both of our positions can be true.

  4. 1972 We read Srila Prabhupada’s KRSNA book, And became completely hooked. We aimed to fix his feet within our heart, And there chant the maha-mantras as our art.

  5. CONCLUSION You can begin with the most important service, Sankirtana, But you’ll realize that without the most essential service, Japa, You’re just half a band.

  6. CONCLUSION Or you can begin with the most essential service, Japa, But you’ll realize that without the most important service, Sankirtana, It has no fruit.

  7. If japa is your inclination! Then follow our determination!

  8. After 30-years, for me, the whole essence of this yoga boils down to just 8-words: Get up early and get your rounds done.

  9. 1. Don’t eat late at night. • Put your alarm-clock across the room next to your light. • You can’t touch the alarm until the light is on. • Drink one full glass of water and sit and chant: • Hare Krsna, Hare Rama! • Automatically everything else will follow. • Live where 2 AM japa is O.K. Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare / Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare

  10. Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna….. Hare Rama, Hare Rama…

  11. Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare / Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare

  12. Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare / Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare

  13. The Final Lesson At the time of death your japa will be tested Pariksit with Seven Days Socrates to his Disciples Jesus Christ at the Last Supper

  14. Japa Joe This is the homunculous. This is how your brain sees your body. There are a lot of nerves in the tongue, lips and fingers. Japa is a most natural form of meditation. Move your lips and tongue, feel each bead. You are making a Deity out of sound.

  15. Japa Joe’s Bag of Tricks There are numberless transcendental though material tricks to control the mind, Hear the mantra, But the basis of all of these is the desire to find them. -Follow the 4-principles strictly, -Get up for a nice mangala-arati and kirtana with the gopis, -Chant, read Srimad Bhagavatam.

  16. Avoid the Dangers in Yoga. CC 2.19

  17. OM

  18. OM There is no limit to life under the Japa Tree. Please join us and save us from T.V. Let us finish with two meditations on the maha-mantra in a raga-anuga mood. And then please tell us if this bunch of ideas was bad or good.

  19. RADHA AND THE BEE Please look through this window at Radha, Her complexion is quite fair. Her hand holds on to Her heart, There are flowers in Her hair. There´s a bee upon a flower. I think that it´s all that She sees.

  20. He´s bringing a message from Krsna, As he darts in and out of the trees. Behind Her are Uddhava and Gopis. We are standing in front by Her knees. Are we also flowers growing, On big, noble, green-leafed trees?

  21. Oh, but I think that this is too hard, To be flowers at Her knees. Better to aspire to be dust, `neath the roots of the big noble trees. Everything in the forest of Vraja, Both colored and simple and green, Chants the Names of Krishna and Rama, To create the proper scene.

  22. Can you hear the sound of the flowers? Their Japa perceived as smell. Can you hear the sound in the dust? It helps the Bee remember, The words that he learned to tell. Find your station. Play you part. All things done by the Japa art.
