Puppet or Slide Shows

Does anyone have video of the life of Vrinda? It's a puppet show done by the late Maharani dasi from Berkeley and her good husband Lokanath Prabhu. I think the film won the first prize at a film festival. Or anything like Shyamantaka Jewel, King Nrga, Prahalad, Dhruva, Dvivida, Fiery Demon, Gopis, to mention a few? Or know of someone with a good lead?

Slideshows, Ramayana Illustrations

Does anyone in this wide world have any of the old animated slide shows they made once upon a time, like Prahalad, Dhruva, Dvivida, Fiery demon, gopis, to mention a few? Or know of someone with a good lead?

And once upon a time, very long ago, New Vrndavana put together a beautifully illustrated Ramayana. I'm searching for good illustrations for Ramayana. If it was done by Palace Press, does anyone have an email address?

I'm also looking for any illustrations available for the life of Tulasi Devi, or anyone who wants to make some.

Samadhi Garden

If anyone lives in an area where it is quite cold in the winter and reasonably warm in summer please bring me up to 2 dozen Honeysuckle and a few lilac bushes from your local garden center, so I can try them out in our Samadhi garden. Any color or variety is welcome. If they turn out hardy enough here, we can grow them in a few other gardens for extra flowers for the Deities. Find out what season they are available, and the best time and soil for planting, not to mention how much sun and watering they like and/or don't like.

Jonquils and daffodils do well here too, if anyone can bring a bag or two of those bulbs. I've tried other bulbs, but they're not adjustable to our climate and water.

There are no agricultural restrictions at Indian customs. So you just need to ask for advice from the garden people how to most carefully carry them so they survive the plane ride. Ask them if they'd make the trip in a suitcase under the plane, where the temperature may be colder. Probably you'd need to pack them in plastic bags to keep them moisturized.

Maha Maha Tulsi Mala Needed

Due to increasing severity of Peripheral Neuropathy in this body's hands, I am looking for a Tulsi Mala made with enormous beads. I saw one such Mala many years ago. The beads appeared to be 2 1/2 inches or more and very "clunky".

I am able to pay a reasonable price for this Mala, as the beads on my "Maha" Mala tend to slip off my very numb fingers.

Thank You. damodara.dasa67@gmail.com

Please accept my humble obeisances. I write to beg for your mercy. I've developed a deep desire to worship Govardhan Shila and write now to see if there is any merciful devotee out there who is worshiping a Giriraj Shila that they would care to let me serve.

I am second initiated and engaged in seva everyday, running a prasadam distribution business, worshiping the deity in the temple and also on occasion sankirtan. I have little money or time to travel India to search for my Istadeva and so turn to the desire tree community of Vaishnavas here.

If you have a Govardhan Shila that you are willing to part with and to engage me in His loving service then please write to me at subala108das@gmail.com and we can talk further.

Your servant,
Subal Das"

Changing Bodies

Does anyone know of a good source of timed lighting which would work on Indian electricity to systematically light up the spirit soul in the heart regions of these 14 figures? The only ones who do it here do it on such a big scale, it would cost thousands of dollars.

Cancer Treatments

Sometime a couple years ago, there was a devotee who posted a very detailed report about how he cured his cancer at some hospital in Tiajuana, Mexico using some formula with B17. I was so sure I kept that file, but can't figure out what I did with it. I don't remember his name, though I think it sounded like Ameyatma. Does anyone have that file or remember his name and how to contact him? So many devotees over here could get great benefit from that. Thanks.
