Title: Made It Safely

User: Neil LA Date: 2007-05-30 22:38:07


Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna!

All Glories to Swami Gaurangapada!

All Glories to the Guru Parampara!

All Glories to the Vaishnavas!


Well, I made it safely to Los Angeles and am settling nicely. There is an internet cafe very close to where I live, so getting on the internet won't be a problem at all.


I've been trying my best to maintain my chanting, and while on the actual moving day itself I wasn't able to complete it, all and all I've been able to continue chanting.


I'm glad to be here. Los Angeles is very different from San Francisco, so it is going to take a bit of getting used to. The city of San Francisco is on the tip of a peninsula and is only 49 square miles in area, so getting places is very easy and quick. Los Angeles is very spread out and getting anywhere takes a long time, especially by bus. People say that you have to have a car to get around LA, but there actually is a bus system and it seems to be good. We'll see. This Sunday, I'm going to try to take the bus to the New Dwarka temple and see how long it takes. The bus trip-planner says that it should only take a little more than a half an hour, but we'll see.


I have an interview at an employment agency tomorrow. I've been praying to Lord Nityananda to please help me find work quickly, and he has been very good about answering my prayers so far, so hopefully I'll be able to start working very soon. I might have to start with a temporary assignment, but I figure anything is better than nothing. I am really trying to look at work, whatever I do, as an opportunity to serve Lord Nityananda and Lord Gauranga, so whatever they want to give me, I will gladly accept.


Anyway that's it for now. Thank you all for your prayers. I am so glad to be a part of the Nityananda, Gauranga, Hare Krishna family.

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Jaya Guru Parampara! Pranams  and Blessings !  All the best Neil for your employment. Since you are surrendered to Lords Nityananda and Gauranga, They will surely take care of you in the way which will be best for you in the long run.
