Once upon a time, Srila Gurudev said to me, "I want you to make beautiful music and preach all over the world, and remember this sloka, "anyavilasita sunyammmmm...."

His words stunned little unqualifed me and I thought, well I have to do what he said ...
Once upon a time, Srila Gurudev said to me, "I want you to make beautiful music and preach all over the world, and remember this sloka, "anyavilasita sunyammmmm...." His words stunned little unqualifed me and I thought, well I have to do what he said and just give it my best shot. But then later I realized that he said the descriptive word "BEAUTIFUL". How do I know what is beautiful music? He comes from Goloka Vrindavan, so anything down here can never compare to up there! So then I was baffled. Later during one of Srila Gurudevs Harikathaa festivals, I sung one of my songs for him....with a modern beat that I used on the synthesizer. Srila Gurudev tapped his feet to the music and afterwords said that it was "BEAUTIFUL!" OH!!! BEAUTIFUL!!!! So NOW I felt that I understood what he meant!! He answered my question! I was so happy! Later by Srila Gurudev's Loving influence I started making videos on youtube. (not counting my nonsense, weird and crazy videos) I also uploaded a few songs in music video form. People liked it and encouraged me to serve more and make more videos! It's not so easy! But anyway, I didn't just want to do videos anymore. I wanted to get serious with my service and make a higher quality cd of at least 9 songs. In 2011 I made up my mind to finish my cd and have it ready for 2012. I pictured it clearly coming out in the 2012 Badger festival. But after 3 songs were completed, I became seriously ill. I have been riding in ambulances, getting blood transfusions and nearly dieing but somehow by the prayers of all the loving devotees, the mercy of Sri Guru and Gauranga and Lord Jagannath, and the causeless blessings of Giriraj, I am still alive and recovering. I am hoping to get physical therapy, ayurvedic treatment, and to get off of the steroid medicine that has made my voice hoarse. My dear sister Chandramukhi thought it would be good to have a fundraiser to help me recover. I feel shy to ask for money, but if I can give something to you in return then I feel happy. SO I have these 3 never before published higher quality songs, (not on youtube) to offer you in return for any donation. By your kind donation, I hope to get the treatment I need, to fully recover, to take good care of Krishna's two beautiful children Vamanadev and Narayani and to MAKE MORE "Beautiful" music! ~Suchandra dasi
