Imlitala karma yoga



Now in these last days we have been alot in Imlitala farm to take care that we can have some vegetables this year too. It has been very nice days without camera but our dear friend Wobin brought his telephone/camera/computer/harddisk/multimediaplayer for one day ant took some photos. Now i got the pictures so i can share it with the nimaiblog followers. On the picture above is the One for whom we are making our efforts: Sri Nimai.





This is a place where the vikings declared their love. Click the image and zoom in on the right to the labyrinth. There you see the evidence that there were devotees of Krishna here in sweden already in the old days...





Our volunteers Maria and Simona ON the car going towards the place where we get our valuable horsedung to put on the fields.




When digging deep enough the horsedung is really warm and cozy. Its so hot that the horsedung becomes like ashes in some places. Supernice for the plants in Imlitala.

Lasting art / Konst som håller



English: Our Gurumaharaj loves very much one statement that George Harrison made. He said that he wanted to make songs that would really mean something to people, even in the future. One such song he made is "My Sweet Lord" through which he spread the maha-mantra. In this way he helped carrying out Lord Chaitanya's (avatar of Krishna/God) prediction that this mantra would be spread to every town and village in the world eventually.

Svenska: Vår Gurumaharaj är väldigt förälskad i ett uttalande som George Harrison gjorde. Han sa att han ville göra låtar som verkligen betyder något för människor, även i framtiden. En sådan låt är "My sweet Lord" genom vilken han spred maha-mantrat. På detta sätt hjälpte han till att införliva Herren Chaitanyas (avatar av Krishna/Gud) förutsägelse att detta mantra skulle spridas till varje stad och by i hela världen så småningom.



My sweet lord
Hm, my lord
Hm, my lord

I really want to see you
Really want to be with you
Really want to see you lord
But it takes so long, my lord

My sweet lord
Hm, my lord
Hm, my lord

Really want to go with you
Really want to show you lord
That it wont take long, my lord (hallelujah)

My sweet lord (hallelujah)
Hm, my lord (hallelujah)

My, my, lord (hallelujah)

Hm, my lord (hare krishna)
My, my, my lord (hare krishna)
Oh hm, my sweet lord (krishna, krishna)
Oh-uuh-uh (hare hare)

Now, I really want to see you (hare rama)
Really want to be with you (hare rama)
Really want to see you lord (aaah)

Talents / Talanger

Svenska: Krishna besitter alla kvaliteter till fullo, jivas som du och jag kan ha några av dem i liten skala. Men även det är fantastiskt!

Purpose of Yoga / Syftet med Yoga



Eng: There can be many motives for practicing Yoga. Often it is used for peace of mind and a flexible body. And whats the harm? No harm. But if we are sitting in a burning house and soon the flames of death will lick our feet, we would probably be much better off to start looking for a way out. But if everything is closed or you can't find the way out? Well then better bang the wall, the ventilationdrum, the door or anything and call out, scream for help. Prayer will be real when we realize our position in this world, when we have proper knowledge of where we are and what we really need. We ARE going to die but are we ready for that? It's very easy to miss the big picture, but essential that we try. It can take a life time or a second.

Sve: Det finns många motiv med att praktisera Yoga. Oftast används det för sinnesro och för att få en flexibel kropp. Och det finns inget fel med det. Men om vi sitter i ett brinnande hus och snart kommer att förtäras av eldens tungor, då gör vi nog bäst i att börja leta efter en utväg. Och om vi inte hittar en utväg då bankar vi på dörrar, väggen eller ventilationstrumman och ropar desperat efter hjälp. En riktig bön kommer när vi förstår vår verkliga position i den här världen och vad vi behöver mest. Vi kommer att dö helt säkert men är vi redo för det? Det är lätt att missa den stora bilden men skam den som ger sig. Det kan ta en livstid eller en sekund.

Smile of Sri Krishna / Sri Krishnas leende


Chess-squared flowerpetals! // Schackrutiga blomblad!

"The impersonalists argue that there is no use in worshiping the Lord when everything is nothing but the Lord Himself. The personalist, however, worships the Lord out of a great sense of gratitude, utilizing the ingredients born out of the bodily limbs of the Lord. The fruits and flowers are available from the body of the earth, and yet mother earth is worshiped by the sensible devotee with ingredients born from the earth. Similarly, mother Ganges is worshiped by the water of the Ganges, and yet the worshiper enjoys the result of such worship."

- Srila Prabhupada

Birthday of a twice-born and visit from highschool class / En två gånger född persons födelsedag och besök från en gymnasieklass



English: On the tuesday it was Maha Haris birthday and Makhanchor had made a roll cake. That roll cake was the most delicious since time immemorial.

Svenska: På tisdagen var det Maha Haris födelsedag och Makhanchor hade bakat en rulltårta. Den tårtan var den godaste sedan tidernas begynnelse.



Eng: Johan, who just came back from India, also joined in on the cake experience.

Sve: Johan, som precis kom tillbaka från Indien, joinade också tårtupplevelsen.



Eng: Yesterday we had a teacher and a school class on visit, around 30 people. That's always interesting, especially when they have many questions. I gave them one Oki-spoon each, let's see what they make out of it. Will they go vegetarian?

Sve: Igår hade vi en lärare och en skolklass på besök, omkring 30 pers. Sånt är alltid intressant, speciellt när de har många frågor. Jag gav dem en Oki-sked var, låt se vad de gör av dem. Kommer de bli vegetarianer?

Vätterstranden och Krishna


Under Krishnas blue lotusfeet / Under Krishnas blå lotusfötter



Time to start chanting the Mahamantra? / Dags att börja chanta Mahamantrat?




Brother Wind and Sister Air,
Open my eyes to visions pure and fair.
That I may see the glory around me.

I am God's creature, of God I am a part
I feel your love awaking in my heart

Brother Sun and Sister Moon
I now do see you, I can hear your tune
So much in love with all that I survey

Nimai Avatar



ENG: A beautiful painting made by Brahma-Samhita Prabhu 5 years ago. My (vasudevas) mother bought it and everytime i visit her i can watch this nice painting.

The word Avatar means decending. This by common sense cannot mean that the lower decends to the higher like in the avatar movie. There the humans entered a culture far more civilized and learned wisdom of living in harmony with the environment. So the title of this movie is completly wrong.


But Sri Nimai Vishvambara that you see on the painting has decended to retrieve the sincere souls back into the fold of the divine play of the Absolute. I was listening to a class these days by Srila Atulananda Acharya and he said there that in this age the Truth is looking after us. You are searching for something else, but the Truth is searching for YOU.


------------------------------------

SVE: En vacker tavla målad av Brahma-Samhita Prabhu för 5 år sedan. Min (vasudevas) mamma köpte tavlan så varje gång jag hälsar på min kära mamma kan jag skåda denna tavla.

Ordet Avatar betyder "nedstigande". Detta begrepp funkar alltså inte om det lägre skulle "nedstiga" till det högre som i Avatar filmen. Där blev människorna inbjudna (i sina avatarkroppar) in i en mkt mer civiliserad kultur och fick lära sig visdomen om att leva i harmoni med omgivningen. Så titeln på filmen är helt fel.

Men Sri Nimai Vishvambara som du ser på tavlan har nedstigit till vår sfär för att omfamna de själar som bakats färdigt i denna materiella värld och bjuda in dem in i det Absolutas lekar. Jag lyssnade på en lektion häromdagen av Srila Atulananda Acharya och han sa att i denna tidåldern så letar Sanningen efter oss. Du letar efter något annat, men Sanningen letar efter DIG.
