WATCH OUT! An Interview with Gaura-jïvana…

The complete interview with Gaura-jïvana dāsa. For an introduction, please refer to May’s newsletter. Miles: How is LA? Gaura-jï: Good. I’m in the outskirts, out in the Valley. It’s great. M: How did you land there? G: Oh man, I've been living here on and off since 2012, I just keep ending up back here. It's beyond my control. Practically, I ended up here because I was living in Colorado in my car from May to October of 2019 and I kept flip­-flopping. I wanted to stay in Colorado because I was close with all the devotees there at the temple. But I have this intrinsic aversion towards paying rent, for a lot of reasons, that's a whole other tangent. But I was like I need to just be self­-sufficient and I'm gonna live in my car through the winter in Colorado to prove that it can be done. There was a couple of blizzards where I was living in my car and I woke up half dead. I thought, Krishna gave me this car to live in so that I don't have to stay in one place. I can drive to San Diego. I had lived in LA in my car and that was gnarly and not that cool. It was cool for some reasons, but it was not cool for a lot of other reasons. I was like, I'll go to San Diego because it's chill there.
