  1. Haribol ! I'm looking for a devotee called Emmanuel Medeiros from Venezuela, in his 50's or 60's . Maybe he has a spiritual name now. Anyone having information about that man could you please kindly contact me at jayopap@.fr Thank you.
  2. Haribol !! I manage to get throught the winter, but my Tulasi is getting her lower branches dry. It seems there is no hope for leaves to appear again and i'm afraid it will cause Her to become unhealthy... I've also read somewhere we should not cut Tulasi's branches. Is it true ? what can be done ? Thank you in advance.
  3. Haribol !! It's me again with my Tulasi care problems... This year i've planted a Tulasi devi and it's growing nicely since June. I live in Bordeaux, France andi use grow lights. The weather was quite good and sunny until a few weeks before. Now it's getting cold and i put her in my baby daughter room in the day, with the electric radiator on up to 24-28 ° C. But i have now a problem with small insects eating her leaves. Yesteday i bathed her with soap according to the Tulasi handbook method. I took a leaf to the local growshop, and the guy told me she's attacted by dust mites, but i saw also bigger insects, like spiders or mites i don't really know. He adviced me to spray Her with neem oil diluted in water once a week. I just did. But he also told me i should put her in a colder atmosphere, like around 17-20 ° C all the time to prevent these dust mites to proliferate. I'm afraid it would be really dangerous for Tulasi to be at such temperature. Any good advice ?? thanks !! Sunanda
  4. Haribol !! This year in June i planted a Tulasi seed and it's growing nicely since. Some little manjaris are appearing at the very top of Her. I've read you're supposed to cut them because otherwise they take too much energy from Tulasi Devi. Should i cut them now, while they're still little and even if they're at the top of Her or should i wait ? Also, i have this solar spectrum light that i use when there is no sun (i live in South-west of France and the winter is coming) but this light make no heat, just solar light. What is the good temperature for her to keep a good normal health (and not just surviving) I can put her in the room of my daughter with an electric radiator because we don't heat the whole house when we're not here. Also, what is the standard of giving her water in the winter, one glass every 3 days ?... I'm worried because last year i had another one but she left in the winter. OKay, thank you in advance again Love Sunanda
  5. I was wondering, does one (neophyte devotee like me) can send spiritual power through a glance. My question is coming from the follwoing experience.Sometimes i talk with people and look at them in the eyes and then i mentally recite the Maha-mantra. Do you think it can give them something ? Because it seems like it has some kind of effect when i do it... Any evidence from scriptures will be greatly appreciated Much Love
  6. yes very nice !! reminds me how in 2 weeks i'll works as a paparazzi in Cannes, France ! Not the same war but probably a war between photographers !! I like these stories in Iraq, are they from the same guy that used to post some years ago ?
  7. Thanx Prabhuji I'm also a disciple of Srila Narayana Maharaja ! nice to meet you
  8. Haribol, my aunt passed away last year, and i'd like to know if it is good to do something for her with a photo. I mean, is this important to do it on her 1 year anniversary ? i'm thinking about offering incence and food to my deities and then to her in front of the photograph and the Shanti mantra. I did this 11 days after her passing last year. Also i planted some mint seeds in her name to cook for Krsna, but the plant died as i was living in an appartment. Now i have a little garden, do you think i can do it again now ? She was a cyco and suffered a lot in her last human life. It is also strange, because my daughter was born the day before. Seems like her birth gave liberation to my aunt. Any experience, sharing could be nice about that ! Thanks
  9. Thank you so much for you help Jay Sri Sudarshana !!
  10. http://www.prapatti.com/slokas/english/sudarshanakavacham1.pdf foudn it but no translation
  11. I didn't read all the answer, so sorry it it has already been posted, but i think you should recite daily Nrsimha Kavaca of Pralad Maharaja and contact Syamasundara the Jyotish astrologer, he can give you a remedial measure, maybe a fire Yajna, that will free you. He's very good. All the best !
  12. Dear devotees, i'm looking for this prayer Sri Sudarsna Kavaca but all i found is this following version and the fonts make it very uneasy to recite, and there is no translation, does anyone could please post it here ?

  13. I've read about 'mantra doctor' and i'm interested ? What is exactly a mantra doctor ? someone who heals people with mantras ? How do one becomes a mantra doctor ? any books, gurus... ?? Thanx
  14. I have an astrologer who told me, after a prasna, i could get money in a certain project, but i have to be careful of Rahu in the 4th house. What are the remedial measures possible ? My details: Sunanda dasa born july 24th 1975 at 3.05 pm in Dijon, France Thank you in advance
  15. For sure there is compassion from Krsna as you're chanting His name. Chanting is the most important. I'm myself initiated as a brahmin and it happened that i broke the regulative principles. Then what ? i fall down and i try to go ahead. I keep on my practice, with irregularities but that is life. We should never get discouraged, because it could stop our practice, when practice is the most important... Good luck on the path LOVE
  16. Haribol, I'm interested in learning more about the science of omens, nimitta. For a few years, it seems like i am sensible to that and i'd like to know how i could devellop this gift. I checked on the internet but i can't find something that answer my questions. Is there any Nimitta astrologer that i could be in contact with to learn how to develop that gift ? Thank you. Sunanda
  17. Haribol, I have a quick question for astrologers here: I want to quit my job in a office next spring to work as a freelance celebrity photographer for a photo agency i'm in contact with. This is a job where you can earn a lot of money but nothing is guaranteed as it is freelance. It need that i go away from the house for about 3 months next year. I'm really excited about doing this job but i fear failure. I'd like to know if i will succeed in this. My details: I'm mister Sunanda dasa, born on July 24th, 1975 at 3.05 pm in Dijon, France Thank you all in advance. LOVE
  18. Please don't answer all at the same time
  19. In some mantras, it is said that one must offer oblations of water along with the mantra. my question is how does one do it ? Do you take some Ganga water form acaman cup to your hand and do you throw it ? on a picture, a deity ? I have no idea ? Anybody knows ? Thanx
  20. Yes, it seems to be different standards. My father in law is Prabhpad disciple and, along with his wife, they follow different. My diet on Ekadasi is generally: Potatoes with cheese fruits or fasting completely ! much love
  21. From Purebhakti.com Rules for Fasting and Miscellania Standard for Ekadasi Break-fasts If you have observed a complete fast (without even water) you do not need to break it with grains. You can break it with caranamrita or fruit. But if you have observed Ekadasi by eating fruit, vegetables, etc., then it should be broken on the following day by taking grains at the times mentioned herein. Maha-dvadasi is observed like Ekadasi. Ekadasi The essence is to eat simply, once or twice, so that one can spend as much time as possible hearing, chanting and remembering Sri Sri Radha-Krsna. Never eat meat, fish, eggs, onions, garlic, carrots, red lentils (masur dahl), green flat lentils, mushrooms or products thereof. Restricted foods on Ekadasi: Tomatoes, eggplants, cauliflower, broccoli, bell peppers, beets, bitter melon (karela), loki, parmal, toroi, kunli, drumsticks, bindi (ladies' fingers) and banana flowers Peas, chickpeas and all types of beans, including products made from beans (e.g., papadams, tofu, tempeh) All leafy vegetables (e.g., spinach, salads, cabbages) and leafy herbs like parsley, coriander leaves, celery and curry leaves Grains (e.g., millet, barley, farina, pasta, rice, corn) and all types of flour made from grains and beans (e.g., rice flour, chickpea flour, urad dahl flour) Starches from corn or grains, and products made from or mixed with these starches like baking soda, baking powder, certain soft drinks with corn syrup, custard, certain yoghurts and puddings, certain varieties of cream and cottage cheese, certain sweets and candies, and tapioca balls Oils made from grains (e.g., corn oil, mustard oil, sesame oil) and products fried in these oils (e.g., fried nuts, potato chips and other fried snack foods) Honey, and sweets made with starches Spices used on Ekadasi: black pepper, fresh ginger, pure salt and fresh turmeric, all taken from a new and clean package Spices not used on Ekadasi: hing (asafetida), sesame seeds, cumin, fenugreek, mustard, tamarind, fennel, cardamom and nutmeg Foods that can be taken all days of the year, including Ekadasi and Caturmasya: All fruits (fresh and dried), all nuts and all oils made from nuts Potatoes, pumpkin, cucumber, radish, squash, lemon, avocado, olives, coconut, buckwheat, all sugars All pure milk products (except yoghurt during the 2<SUP>nd</SUP> month of Caturmasya and milk during the 3<SUP>rd</SUP> month) For sannyasis, brahmacaris and vanaprasthas: shaving head and cutting nails is to be done on full moon days Caturmasya Restricted foods during the entire four months of Caturmasya: Eggplants, tomatoes, loki, parmal, urad dahl and honey Particular foods that are restricted during each of the four months: First month: No leafy vegetables, such as spinach, salads of all types, cabbages of all types, kale, leafy herbs like coriander, mint, parsley, curry and powdered leafy herbs and teas Second month: No yoghurt (if one requires it for health, it can be mixed with water) Third month: No milk (if required, it can be mixed with a drop of lemon juice) Fourth month: No mustard oil or sesame seeds Purusottama Masa Restricted foods during the month of Purussottama: Eggplants, tomatoes, loki, parmal, urad dahl, honey, mustard oil or sesame seeds No shaving for brahmacaris and sannyasis
  22. I've read that there is a Radha Kavaca in the book SRI NARADA PANCARATRA I can't find it online, does anyone can post it here or send a link ? Thanx
  23. Thank you all for your answers. I'm praying Sri Guru and Krsna to please protect my Tulasi Maharani. She getting full spectrum light 24/24 for one week now and i gave her organic fertilizers. I'm looking for this Miracle Gro product that someone kindly adviced me and i will probably try. What is funny is that i bought the lamp and the product in grow shop, the lamp was 100 euros and the product was 6. I said the guy: "well, i take the lamp and this product" he replied:"Actually this one is better and only 2 euros more (so 8 euros)" I said ok as i understood it was a positive omen because it brought the amount to 108 euros ! On a more scientific level, Tulasi is half dry but i have hope she'll get better. Small sprouts are coming of the earth, bringing new Tulasi maharanis here and i carefully put them in another pot. I think i cannot cut the dry branches, because it is an offence and causes her great pain, is that true ?
  24. Haribol, i've asked some questions about Tulasi care recently. As i live in Bordeaux, France, the winter is coming and there is almost no sunlight. I've both some grow lights, full spectrum and Tulasi is getting light non-stop until 2 days. As the leaves are getting really dry, the ones that as still green seem to be about to fall, sadly hanging from the branchs. I don't know if i should water her or not. The soil is a little wet. I think i watered her too much, giving her 2 glasses of water 2 times in a week. She about 40 centimeters high. So how to know if she need water or if i should wait ? i've both some organic fertilizer that you mix with 1 liter of water but i dn't know if i should use it or not yet. Any advice ? thank you in advance Sunanda
  25. thank you very much for your kind replies. i'm finally getting a lamp this evening, because though some tells to avoid this kind of light, i just have no choice as there is not too much sun in winter here and my Tulasi is getting dry. I just hope she will survive !! LOVE
