I am very happy to give you birthday blessings today on your appearance day in this world. Your life is very special as you have come to Krishna consciousness. Even a moment of Krishna Consciousness is more valuable than anything else you can think of in this world. I pray that Lord Krishna blesses Your life to be most valuable by engaging you more and more in His service. May your life be surrendered to the instructions of Guru and Gauranga and may you reach the lotus feet of Krishna at the end of this life. I hope your day is filled with happiness and bliss in Krishna Consciousness and also throughout the year.

We hope that in this life you will be fully engaged in Krishna conscious activities serving Guru and Gouranga. We hope that this day will be very blissful and will be filled with thoughts of Lord Krishna. Make not only this day be auspicious, but may you advance in Krishna Consciousness during the whole year.

Please accept my humble obeisances _/\ò_. All glories to Srila Prabhupada! All glories to Sri Gurudeva!
Thank you for sending us the transcriptions of the Gaura Lila lectures of Guru Maharaja, they are really nectar.
Currently we are working on publishing a book by Guru Maharaja on Caitanya Lila. We have so far edited more than 100 pages of transcribed lectures, and combined various versions of the pastimes as Guru Maharaja described them to make one continuous book.
Guru Maharaja had asked me many ago for this type of book to be published, along the lines of the books of Bhakti Tirtha Swami, which were all published from edited lectures of his.
I spoke personally to Guru Maharaja just a few weeks ago in Mayapur, and he heard some of the first drafts of the book, and he was very happy and asked us to please release this as soon as possible.
We are trying to include as many pastimes as possible in the book, so I would like to also include these Gaura Lila lectures which have some really nectar pastimes not heard elsewhere. It seems reduntant to transcribe them again, so would you like to contribute your transcriptions to this book project also - we would give you credit in the book credits as one of the transcribers.
It would be very nice if we can increase the nectar of this book to offer to Guru Maharaja as much as possible. Please let me know if you would like to be a part of it also.
Your servant, Deva Gaura Hari das JPS Archives Coordinator
