The tent: Moving around on the transcendental plane

It's interesting how the perception of the tent-jobs has changed as we get faster and faster. It's service to the Temple/Guru/Krishna, and with the increasing ease and ensuing joy for service, so the reciprocation – spiritual ecstasy – has increased. And we have reached new levels. 

In the beginning it was slow and heavy: it took around 4 hours to put the tent up, and down – always faster – around 2. As increasing skills, speed, ease and tent job-ecstasy took us to a higher level, the experience was that in comparison to the previous, we were so fast putting it up that it felt like we were taking it down. And on reaching the next level, it was dreamlike. One job was so fast and ecstatic that it was like it never happened.

Now it's beyond time. It's eternal. The feeling is that there is no putting it up or taking it down, it's always there – transcendental, just either manifest or unmanifest. And we just move around on this transcendental plane in an Eternal Now collecting donations to the Temple in beautiful gardens.
