Thank You!! And Request
Posted November 6, 2005
I wanted to take a moment to thank each of you who took the time to write to me and reveal support, experiences and advice to me for helping my son on this path. Putting all these wonderful letters together, I think I pretty much have the key to perfect parenting! Now, I only need to work very hard on myself and my execution of these wonderful suggestions.
I have two requests:
First: I surpisingly received letters from our very dear "children of Krishna". I, for some reason, didn't anticipate this. Being 31, I am not much older than some of you, but my upbringing was very different. These letters held a tremendous amount of strength in terms of what it is that our kids NEED in life, spiritually and materially. I really appreciate those letters and the time that was taken to write and send them. I would love to hear from more of our dear Children of Krishna. I am truly appreciating hearing the good and the bad to help me find my footing to do what is best for my son. The goal is to LOVE Krishna.
Second: These letters (about 50 of them so far) are so powerful, each of them, I am asking permission to compile the points, anonymously, to share with my local community.
The experiences, advice, practical day to day application, what my parents did wrong, what my parents did right, etc... is amazing! I have been receiving a gold mine in my inbox and I don't feel that I should keep it to myself.
With the permission of the devotees who have kindly taken the time to write to me, who are in the process of writing or who would like to write, I would like to put this together and make it available to others.
Thank you so much for assisting me in my role as Mata. I would love to share the wisdom of your experiences with other pitas and matas.
Your aspiring servant, Karunamayi devi dasi
