The tent: Moving around on the transcendental plane

It's interesting how the perception of the tent-jobs has changed as we get faster and faster. It's service to the Temple/Guru/Krishna, and with the increasing ease and ensuing joy for service, so the reciprocation – spiritual ecstasy – has increased. And we have reached new levels. 

In the beginning it was slow and heavy: it took around 4 hours to put the tent up, and down – always faster – around 2. As increasing skills, speed, ease and tent job-ecstasy took us to a higher level, the experience was that in comparison to the previous, we were so fast putting it up that it felt like we were taking it down. And on reaching the next level, it was dreamlike. One job was so fast and ecstatic that it was like it never happened.

Now it's beyond time. It's eternal. The feeling is that there is no putting it up or taking it down, it's always there – transcendental, just either manifest or unmanifest. And we just move around on this transcendental plane in an Eternal Now collecting donations to the Temple in beautiful gardens.

The tent: Rävlanda. This Year's Team



Rävlanda, 37 km east of Gupta Vrindavan Nimaihuset: this year's tent team. From left to right: Subal "Tent Intelligence Prabhu" das, Premsita "Gupta Harikatha" devi dasi, Sevananda "Danam Collector" das

The renter made lots of seva and donated extra, and afterwards we had a spontaneous satsang over a nice cup of tea on the veranda about spiritual sound. In the evening he also had a sound-file in his mailbox with Srila Prabhupada chanting the Hare Krishna-mantra for 1 hour, about as high spiritual sound as it gets.

On the way back in the car we remembered 2 years back when we explained reincarnation to a renter who was throwing a party for his 50th birthday. If he didn't get it before, he probably did when Premsita waved him goodbye with: "See you on your next 50th birthday".
