Auspicious Nectar (Nimaihuset News Bulletin): Reinforcement

Krishna Consciousness is also a sort of fight; but not with rifles. Our weapon is karatalas [small hand-cymbals].”
(Srila Prabhupada Letter, 3/8/1969)

Madhavendra Puri das with karatalas, below Srila Prabhupada

For one month Nimaihuset is visited by Madhavendra Puri das, senior swedish devotee, in Krishna consciousness for 25 years, disciple of Srila Narayan Maharaj, friend of our Gurumaharaj, and with 150 mp3-lectures by Srila Sridhar Maharaj on his computer (we only have 70 in the lounge-player). 

Right now he is "between Vrindavans" - comes straight from a 2-months-stay there and is going back again next month, and he asked us if he could stay in Nimaihuset in between. (However, since Nimaihuset is Gupta Vrindavan, hidden Vrindavan, he never really leaves it but just makes a little geographic acrobatics.)

The temple - at the same time an embassy for the Spiritual Kingdom and a military underground base behind enemy lines - is greatly benefitted in the energetic war against maya by his chanting, studying, adding devotional energy to the morning and evening programs, giving lectures, cooking for Krishna, speaking hari-katha (talk about Krishna), going out on book distribution sankirtan with Subal das and Raj, and playing karatalas.
