Srila Prabhupada

My dear spiritual master Srila Prabhupada.
Please accept my humble obeisances at your divine lotus feet.

On this supremely auspicious day of your transcendental appearance 120 years ago in this material world I would like to thank you for giving all of yourself in the service of the Lord to rescue his fallen parts and parcels. I am your eternally indebted servant at your lotus feet. My life only has value if you are there otherwise I am a fallen speck with no direction and no hope. You not only give meaning to my life you are my life because without you there is only doom.

Acarya upasana is essential. Your Divine Grace gives us Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. And if we want to see Krsna, if we want to enter in the spiritual world, then we have to go through the acarya. That is the injunction of the Vedas. We cannot approach the Supreme Personality of Godhead directly. The line of action in our Vaisnava tradition is dasa-dasanudasa (CC Madhya 13.80), we are the humble servants of the Supereme Lord’s servants. We have to go thorough the medium of the spiritual master, the bona fide spiritual master in disciplic succession to approach the Lord.

yasya deve parä bhaktir yathä deve tathä gurau [ÇU 6.23]. If one has got unflinching faith in the Supreme Personality of Godhead, yathä deve, and similar faith in guru then that is the way to perfection.

Tadiya, most cherished is the servant of the Lord, one who is in relationship with Him. So Lord Krsna becomes very pleased if we worship His most confidential servant as well as all Vaishnavas adhering to the path chalked out by the bona fide acarya. Srila Prabhupada, I would like to thank you again and again for giving us the association of such sincere Vaishnavas for this is all that matters in time and space.

Like a fierceful lion you came to the Western world benedicting the most fallen of the fallen with incredible nectarean flow of instructions from your lotus mouth. When Lord Krsna came and said: surrender unto me! Who was ready and who could understand? Lord Krsna send YOU to make us understand. To show the example, to give us knowledge and destroy the ignorance of impersonalism from our hearts. Lord Krsna send you through Your spiritual master Bhaktisidhanta Saraswati Thakur Prabhupada who instructed you to preach the message of Lord Caitanya in the Western world. Sent by the Lord personally you fearlessly executed the proposition in deepest humility and surrender. You are the perfect tool in Sri Krsna’s hands, a transparent via media of the Supreme Lord’s message. You make us little babies in spiritual understanding feel like we are important servitors and realized souls. But we are completely dependent upon you for any of our progress on the spiritual path. You show the utmost tolerance in your behavior and the greatest kindness upon us paired with affection and understanding towards every individual.

Srila Prabhupada, it is only through you that we can see the truth and it is only through you that we can speak the truth. After having received this treasured bhakti-latta from you, kindly engage us in spreading it around so others will also have the chance getting out of this eternally miserable material existence.

What greater gift could be there to give then pure love of Godhead? Eternal blissfull life in complete knowledge? Nobody knows who is God but you not only know, you feel and live God, and you actually freely give this knowledge to others in such a way that they can understand. You see everybody as a servant of the Lord and you are fanning the spark of our dormant Krsna consciousness. You are teaching us how to spiritualize our existence by giving us proper consciousness. Please continue showering your causeless mercy upon us and let us get deeply dipped into the the holy name and the propagation of the holy name through the power of Your Divine Grace’s instruction.

My words can’t give a even a glimpse of Your Divine Grace’s greatness and I am praying on this very day of your transcendental appearance that you please may always be so kind to always engage me in the transcendental loving service to Radha and Krsna in the association of your sincere disciples Srila Prabhupada. This is my only desire and my life dedicated to your lotus feet is my heartfelt praise to Your Divine Grace.

Your eternally indebted servant,
Jaya Sri Gaurangi Devi Dasi
