Offerings of Love

Heartfelt offerings by devotees of ISKCON Whitefield to Srila Prabhupada on the occasion of his appearance day

Offering by HG Bandhu Madhava das

Dear Srila Prabhupada

Please accept my respectful obeisances.

Every time I recite the prayer mukam karoti vachalam pangum langhayate girim yat-kripa tam aham vande shri-gurum dina-taranam, I feel that I do not have any good quality or capability in me. Whatever little I have learnt or got, it is all but of your kind mercy.

I am actually a dump person because even after completing my so called degree, I was not able to frame a single sentence in any language I had learnt. But now by your mercy, you gave me the capability to speak to and convince few people to take up the process that you have given us.

I am actually a lame person, spiritually. My life was without an orientation. I was living like a dog or cat without any purpose of life. It is you who are directing my life through your amazing books and enlightening lectures. Otherwise what hope do I have got to cross over this mountain of material existence being spiritually lame; it’s absolutely insurmountable. By your mercy, I am able to walk; I have confidence that I will be able to cross the mountain by your mercy.

Srila Prabhupada, your conviction in the words of your spiritual master; your strong faith in the teachings of Bhagavad Gita, Bhagavatam and the holy name of Krishna are all obviously revealed in your lectures and teachings. I am simply amazed at you. Your are my favourite personality of my life. I am simply trying to become a devotee like you. And you wanted all your followers to become like you or even more than you. You kick away our doubts and illusion in the coarse by asking “what is the difficulty?”.

Srila Prabhupada, I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for the amazing books you have given us taking so much of hardship in the coarse of writting them, for your thunderbolt like striking lectures which destroys all our ignorance, for the amazing and practical guidance you have given through letters, morning walks, conversations etc for all fallen people like me could also gain great hope in our spiritual journey and for demonstrating by your own personal example to the whole world how a devotee should always be living remembering and serving for the pleasure of guru and Krishna.

Srila Prabhupada, I wish to become a devotee as you expect but I have lots of non-sense in me. I am willing to co-operate with you to correct myself, to change myself for your pleasure. But I need your help. I am a fool. I don’t know what is ultimately good for me. My mind too cheats me regularly and takes me for a useless ride within this material world and gets me to do so many crazy things. But your message my savior again and again. You are my hope. I wish not to leave your dhoti. The only desire is to be in the association of your sincere followers. Also give me the intelligence to wholeheartedly accept that association as my great hope of deliverance. Please bless me with a drop of your mercy, so that I will be able to please you by spreading your message. Please bless me that I will be able please your disciple HH Jayapataka Swami Guru Maharaj who is your representative for me. I have no reason to demand your mercy as I have not done anything which would please you. But I need your mercy. I am hoping on it as my only hope.

Thank you Srila Prabhupada.

Your servant

Dear Respected Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my respectful obeisances. All glories to you !!

One day one devotee told that there is one personality who is worshipped all the times in span of 24 hours, it is none other than you Srila Prabhupada. Because at any time there is somewhere in the world Guru Puja is going on. It means the real Jagad Guru.

Just concluded Sri Krishna Janmashtami, we can see your mission of spreading Holy name is continuously getting spread to all souls. Similarly few years ago it was me Srila Prabhupada, though it is my fortune but it is your causeless mercy that your bestow the supreme fortune on undeserved soul like me.

Although your gifts to the world are unlimited and inconceivable—because you distributed the most precious object of the spiritual world, love for Krishna- there are several contributions you made that are particularly significant, and we can break them down into three main categories:

i) Society where everyone can stay- ISKCON is the perfect manifestation of your mercy Srila Prabhupada. Due to the extremely difficult and sinful nature of the age in which we live, the age of Kali, it is practically impossible to practice Krishna Consciousness. Srila Prabhupada you gave ISKCON- a family and Holy name which is like a ship that is helping to pass through the ocean of material nature, where there is every opportunity to slip from the path of spirituality.

ii) Books- You went to the West and translated the most important of the Vedic texts, and presented them with his unique Bhaktivedanta purports for the ultimate benefit of the world at large.
You presented this books in such a systematic and sublime way that while a scholar will appreciate them on one particular level, a simple child can enter into their mysteries as well. Indeed your books are the most important aspect of your gift to humanity. You had boldly declared that these books will be the spiritual law books for this world for the next ten thousand years.

iii) Devotees- Touchstone is recognized by its quality to transform iron into gold, similarly Prabhupada you have transformed materialistic people into devotees. In general people would like to see the miracles- more than this what could be the miracles-transforming materialistic people into devotees.

When we look closely at your disciples Srila Prabhupada, it becomes quite obvious that most of them are very special personalities, with extraordinary spiritual qualities. Anyone- no need to have spiritual vision-can recognize that the real greatness of you Srila Prabhupada was your ability to elevate the most fallen souls to the highest spiritual platform.

On this very auspicious and special occasion, I can only hope and wish to become instrument by your causeless mercy in spreading your mission Srila Prabhupada.

Thank you so much Srila Prabhupada.
Your eternally debted soul,
Yugala Kisora das

Offering by Hariksetra das

Dear Srila Prabhupada

Please accept my respectful obeisance

All glories to you.

Over the years my appreciation for your teachings is increasing more and more. You are not just another teacher, but a tattva-darśi, one who has seen the truth. Bhagavad-gita 4.34 says a tattva-darśi can impart knowledge. Not just that you are one who has been proclaimed to spread the Krishna consciousness far and wide all over the world.

I try myself and try to inspire other to hear your lecture and read your divine books regularly. There is no other hope for us who are in the darkness of kali yuga to understand Krishna and oneself.

Thankyou Srila Prabhupada for your invaluable books and vani.

I am trying to keep the preaching spirit high by the inspiration and order of my Gurumaharaj. By endeavoring to execute the instructions of my Gurudev i am sure you will be pleased. May the instruction to make Bangalore the first Krishna Conscious city be constantly ringing in my mind.

On your auspicious Vyasapuja i pray that i always remain your servant. Please save me from various anartas, desire for sense gratification and desires for puja, labha and adoration.

Your servant

Dear Śrīla Prabhupāda,

Please accept my prostrated obeisances in the dust of your lotus feet. All glories to Your Divine Grace.

nama oṁ viṣṇu-pādāya kṛṣṇa-preṣṭhāya bhū-tale śrīmate bhaktivedānta-svāminn iti nāmine
namas te sārasvate deve gaura-vāṇī-pracāriṇe nirviśeṣa-śūnyavādi-pāścātya- deśa-tāriṇe

I am unlimitedly eternally indebted to you as you have showered me your inconceivable causeless mercy of unlimited profound love of Krishna and His dear devotees.

In turn taking burden of unlimited sins accumulated over millions of life. I have no idea how all this fortune has come to me to be part of this glorious wonderful family.

Śrīla Prabhupāda, once a devotee asked you – “What pleases you the most?”. After a brief pause you replied “If you love Krishna”. My humble prayer to you on this most auspicious day of your divine appearance in this material world is to
– please give me the strength to follow your divine instructions with faith and conviction,
– please bless me that I can properly follow your footsteps, mold my life according to the examples you so mercifully set, and
– please bestow us with the capacity to co-operate together despite umpteen challenges, difficulties and ironies of Kali-yuga.

I pledge to renew my efforts to sincerely chant the Holy Names and study regularly your transcendental books. I fall at your lotus feet and beg to remove my various shortcomings due to my selfish egoism and spiritual laziness to push your divine movement.

Your eternal servant,
Sudhir Gopal das

Bangalore

Dear Prabhupadaji,

I have started taking very small baby steps in my spiritual journey. I have a long way to go and am not even qualified to offer my thanks to you, as I’m still a rascal. I have not read enough of your writings to be qualified to thank you, but the little that I have read have impacted me positively.

I would look forward to links sent by my shiksha guru that were related to topics covered during my level 1 & 2 Gita Course. Whenever possible, I would click on the Next link to move to other chapters that you covered via prabhupadavani.org or ISKCON Desiretree website. And what stayed with me was your dedication to spread the word of Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, to all the fallen souls of this Kaliyuga. And this shamed me and made me realise the first lesson you taught us through your teachings, and that is “We are not this material body”. So, giving material pleasure to this material body is a waste of time. Rather, we must give it spiritual pleasure through service to Krishna. I am still struggling to learn this first lesson you taught, which is why I said I am still a rascal.
Prabhupada, another point I wanted to tell you, is my realisation of the selfless service rendered by your shishyas shishyas and their shishyas in service of the Lord and their love and devotion to you. I must also tell you about the dichotomy I have experienced while living and dealing with this material world and trying to understand my spiritual needs at the same time. I must definitely thank you a million times for dedicating your life to deliver all of us fallen souls back to Godhead. With this, I promise to devote more time to read more, so that by next Vyasapuja, I will feel empowered to offer sincere words of gratitude to you from the bottom of my heart for realisations that I got from your teachings, rather than mere generalisations and lip service.

Thank you, Prabhupada for opening my eyes and enabling me to see.

A devotee in the making,
Sudha Kumar

Hare Krishna Dandvat pranam??

All glories to Srila Prabhupada ?????

If asked personally , “ who would you like to spend a day with “ my answer would be you Srila Prabhupada!!! We have grown up listening to your classic Hare Krishna kirtan , waiting in a long queue after school to have typically transcendental ISKCON Prasadam….

As children we were amazed to hear our mother narrate to us how she joined your Prabhat pheri ( early morning sankirtan)on roads with devotees in the chilling cold of Delhi …. how we wish that we could also be present ….

Reading your quotes in everyday calendars in Wattsapp groups makes us more and more close to you and give us direction for the day …

Back to Godhead is an ace magazine in building up strong characters of future devotees …

Last but not the least , you came in my dreams and said that I have to work hard to get initiated by a spiritual master … and your nectarean words co-incided with words of my spiritual master…

You are with us every moment whether we go to your room in Radha Damodar in Vrindavan or sit in front of our home altar … constantly guiding us , scolding us, asking us to sit properly and chant … how do you manage ???

With lots of awe and reverence ,
Your aspiring servant,
Manju Lali Gopi Devi Dasi

Offering by Amala Purana Das

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my dandavat,
All glories to Your Grace,

Srila Prabhupada, presently I’m reading CC Madhya Lila Ch.2 – The Ecstatic Manifestations of Lord Caitanya. In this chapter, Srila Krsnadas Kaviraj Gosvami has given a synopsis of maha-bhava ecstatic symptoms of Lord Caitanya mahaprabhu.

While reading this chapter I realized that it’s only by your mercy that we are getting to read such advanced stages of devotional service. If you wounldn’t have come then all these great teachings of previous acaryas would have lost. I cannot estimate my immense fortune to get an opportunity to read such treasure books.

I heard from my spiritual master the you did not want to come to this planet but because Lord Krishna wanted you to write these books you appeared here. If you wouldn’t have come Srila Prabhupada then it was not possible for fallen souls like me to get a glimpse of our real identity as eternal servants of Lord Krsna and how to actually establish ourselves back in that position – we would have continued for another million and billion of years in rotten life of sense gratification. Now, after your appearance, at least there is some hope that one day I’ll be established in my eternal constitutional position.

Srila Prabhupada, my spiritual master is His Grace Sriman Sankarshan Das Adhikari Maharaja. I’ve never met you or seen you. But after serving my spiritual master, I do get a glimpse of you. He is perfectly following your instructions and inspiring all his students and disciples to do the same. There is not even a tinge of deviation in his practice. I want to share with you that today there are few irregularities coming in ISKCON. Many are watering down the process given by you such as illicit sex with one’s wife is ok. But my Guru Maharaja is standing very strong against such deviations and ensuring the process of Krishna Consciousness given by you is not watered down and ISKCON does not becomes another Christianity. He is your perfect follower Srila Prabhupada and If I can also become servant of my spiritual master like he is yours then my life will be perfect.

I do not know why I’ve received mercy to come in your association, association of my spiritual master, my guru mata and other vaisnavas. Inspite of such a great fortune I’m so foolishly attached to the life of sense gratification. Who can be more fool than me? So please Srila Prabhupada, give me your mercy that I can come to my senses and undeviatingly engage in the service of my spiritual master, your service and service of Lord Krishna

Your insignificant eternal servant,
Amala Purana Das

Offering by Aishvarya Vrinda devi dasi

Most revered Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obeisances at your lotus feet. ?

What I’ve received from you is the most precious of all that I have got life after life. “Hare Krishna maha mantra “, yes Prabhupada, I had no knowledge about the Kali dharma & was simply engaged in various religious activities without knowing the proper concept & the actual destination to be achieved.

Its only because of your efforts, Harinaam sankirtan has become so popular that knowingly or unknowingly so many souls all around the world are getting benefitted.

You have also created wonderful devotee association all around which acts like a barricade to protect us from maya. Without devotee association maya creeps in some or the other way & tries to pull me away from Krishna on the pretext of being “practical”.

You slept only for two hours a day & spent most of your time in writing books for us. But I am so lazy that i find it difficult to read them regularly.

Prabhupada, I sincerely admit that I’m not capable of serving you in anyway, its only by your mercy that I can use this human life to please you & move closer to Krishna, atleast by a few steps.

Plz bless me Prabhupada, that I can read & understand your books & help others too in utilising this knowledge for the ultimate benefit.

Plz make me qualified to take shelter at your lotus feet & serve you in every possible way.

Your humble servant,
Aishvarya Vrinda devi dasi

Dear Beloved Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obeisance’s at your lotus feet. All glories to You.

Thank you for coming to this world and showing us path of Bhakti. You went through many difficulties and challenges to wake up the sleeping souls like me. You have bestowed your causeless mercy upon the fallen souls like me.

I don’t know since how many millions of years I am wandering in this ocean of dukhalayam asasvatam. What could be hope for the one who had considered the sense enjoyment is ultimate joy in life.

Please shower your mercy on me so that one day the mountains of lust and envy burn into ashes and this fallen soul can hanker for lotus feet of Lord Krishna for a moment.

Your servant,
Rahul Rajdhar Mahajan

Offering by Viraj Hegde

Hare Krishna,

It is beyond my imagination how Srila Prabhupada single handedly wrote so many books and amount of hard ship he took to bring in movement of Krishna Consciousness.

I am grateful to Srila Prabhupada for helping me think beyond the material world. It has been about an year now I have started being part of the Sankirtan & Bhagavad Gita classes – Now I understand the selfless love for Krishna which Srila Prabhupada had. For me, never a day passes without talking about Krishna. Everything I think these days are directed towards how I can please and serve Krishna. From bottom of my heart I am very thankful to Srila Prabhupada for inspiring me to be part of Krishna Consciousness and putting me into a path of Spirtual Transformation.

Hari Bol !

Hare Krishna

dandvat pranams _/\_

Though this servant is not qualified to write about the greatness of Srila Prabupada, at the feet of prabupada requesting for forgiveness and writing this.

This servant could have not read Bhagavat Gita or relish Srimad Bhagavatam, if Srila Prabupada could have not given to this world.

Just by reading Srila prabaupads books and associating with his disciples purity gets injected in the minds and intelligence.

Today we have greatest issues like factory farming hazards and innocent animals killed, in a simple and an intelligent way Srila prabupada’s movement has contributed to it immensely.

Srila Prabupada was highly compassionate towards everyone.

This servant came across from some people, they simply stopped eating meat after reading the impact of meat eating through the pictures of Bhagavat Gita – Though they are not part of ISKCON – they are also influenced by his teachings – just by minute reading.

Just by seeing Srila Prabupadas picture, many smile with background music in their minds Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare. Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama hare Hare.

There are many many souls who could have been directionless and wasted their life without spending in a Divine way, if there was no Srila Prabupada Movement.

When the world Love Lord Jagannath and can know about Krishna. Its because of Srila Prabupada.

Srila Prabupada gave Krishna’s love to the world with out discrimination.

Srila prabupada created a nicest environment for all of us in this Kali Yuga.

Srila Prabupada once when someone was chasing away a Dog, he said dont be harsh to it just give little prasad and pray for it.

Srila prabupad made women know about Chastity and live by it – Where on the other side there are lot of toughest path for women, he stopped them getting into such troubles by teaching the importance of Chastity. In today’s world if Chasity is followed among many women, Srila Prabupada’s contribution to it is immense.

Depression, Anger and Hopelessness are replaced with highest level of content feeling, strength and hopefulness.

Mistakes are done mainly because of lack of knowledge. Srila Prabupada gave that divine knowledge and stopped many of us doing great sins.

There are more and more reasons why this servant is grateful to Srila Prabupada. requesting for forgiveness for any offence committed while writing this offering.

Jai Jai Srila Prabupada.

Offering by Rishabh Mishra

Dear GuruDev,

My heartfelt obesience to your lotus feet.

I am no one to write anything about you, Maharaj, because it’s like showing torch to the Sun. However, at present, you’re the source of my spiritual journey.

The way parents give birth to a child in this material world, nurture him, make him learn to crawl, walk and run, similarly, being my spiritual father, you are the sole reason of my birth in this spiritual world of Krishna Consciousness. By your causeless mercy, you have given birth to me in the movement, due to which I am at crawling stage (because I am in the safe hands of devotees).

You are the sole reason, because of which I joined this movement.

You are the sole reason, because of which I have been getting consistent opportunities to hear Krishna Katha.

You are the sole reason, because of which I am always surrounded by such sincere devotees.

You are the sole reason, because of which I get to hear necterious Bhagvatam from such exalted devotees from across the world (within Krishna consciousness movement).

You are the sole reason, because of which I get plenty of opportunities to serve Vaishnavas in some or the other way, but it’s me who become careless while serving them.

You are the sole reason, because of which in all my sorrow and rejoice, I find such loving devotees around and with me.

Prabhupada ji, I beg at your lotus feet that please… please… please don’t leave me untouched ever with your blessings, how so ever careless and mean I become in future as well. I desperately need you.

All my obesiences, respect and love to you, Prabhupad ji. ?
Hare Krishna !!!

Hare Krishna Prabhu ,

Please find the below Vysapuja offering.

Namah omm bishnu padaya krishna prestaya bhutale, Srimate bhakti vedanta swamin iti namine.
Namaste sarasvate deve gaura vani Pracharine, Nirvisesa sunyavadi paschatya desa charine.

By the inspiration of ISKCON I got to know the purpose of human life and started to chant hare krishna mahamantra .

I realized in the age of kali we involve so many sinfull activity and chanting hare krishna mantra can eradicated all the sin.

I like Prabhupada because of his surrender to his guru and executing his guru’s instruction with determination even after facing so much up and down moment in india as well as abroad . While he was in abroad the people and and environment was not much comfortable to preach krishna consciousness but still with patience and determination he executed all plane and convinced the people that krishna consciousness is the purpose of human life for getting perfection.

As I indebded to prabhupada for his spiritual knowledge given to us I like to follow his instruction and preach to more people as per my capacity to follow krishna consciousness.

Regards,

Sangram

Offering by Karunapati Kesava das

Hare Krishna Dear Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my respectful obeisances !!!

First of all I don’t have any qualification to offer homage unto your exalted divine self, but I am doing this for my own purification. First, I beg unto you for your causeless mercy to give me strength, otherwise I have no hope for anything in spiritual life what to speak of attempting to glorify you.

* You are so unexplainable great personality even if I madly try to use all letters in all languages in all combinations that cannot match even a drop of your ocean of auspicious qualities

* Your smile can shy away millions of sun put together which drive away the darkness of ignorance of all conditioned souls, hoping for a day to get a glimpse

* Somebody wants to know the definition of Acharya, then I would like to say “Srila Prabhupada”, there is nothing I can say more

* You have given your everything as a service unto your Spiritual master beyond ones wildest imagination possible but you keep saying the only qualification you had is the desire to hear your spiritual master and serve him, please bestow upon this arrogant fool your causeless mercy so that I can one day try to develop even a drop of drop of drop of that Humility

* Prabhupada, at your lotus feet your dear most disciple HH Jayapataka swami maharaj serving beyond your satisfaction, I don’t even have courage to ask you because of my repeated mistakes but yet since you are exalted and highly compassionate, I beg unto your dust of lotus feet to somehow make me an instrument in serving my Guru Maharaj who is serving you tirelessly by keeping his instructions as my life and soul

* Please forgive me for all the offenses I am committing and I repeatedly beg unto you for your causeless mercy unto this undeserving fool to somehow develop immunity against committing future offenses

* Once I heard from my Guru maharaj lectures, all ISKCON devotees are able to perform any sort of devotional service is only because of your Kripa Sidhi, how foolish and degraded I am beyond any comprehension but yet you were so merciful upon me. Please Prabhupada, I beg unto you again and again please, please, please somehow make me attracted to your literary contribution to have any hope in my bhakti, what else hope I have?

* I am trying to follow your instruction of doubling the service every year and by your causeless mercy somehow I am finding fair amount of success whenever I try to execute for your pleasure, so please continue care for this fool even though undeserving

* Dearest grandpa, Please always keep me under your shelter and save me from any influence of maya so that I can try serving your movement for your pleasure

Last but not least, I beg unto you,

– Please, Chastise me whenever I am not obedient to sastric instructions or acharyas words

– Please, Drag me back whenever I am deviating from path of pure devotion

– Please, Save me from committing offenses especially against Vaishnavas

I am requesting from the deepest part of my heart to please bless your potential grandsons and granddaughters whom I trying to humbly lead as per your teachings so that I can one day bring them to your lotus feet for your causeless mercy and connect to your bonafide parampara. Please always make me an instrument as per your liking by providing me the strength of understanding and ability to execute for your satisfaction.

Please forgive your insignificant grandson for any incompetence in paying you homage.

Yours ever trying insignificant servant

Today my efficient survival is only because of you.If not for your books,temples,devotees,teachings,practical guidance facing so many hardships,I wouldn’t be living a worthy life like this.I would have wasted my time n energy like others as well.Hence want to do something for the society.I want to serve you in your mission.But I am handicapped without intelligence or without you & your achrya’s blessings. Before I give anything to the society, I should practice & preach myself well.Otherwise whatever measures I am taking in this regard,how will it be successful??.But Srila Prabhupad,I am suffering due to many inabilities due to falling in 3 modes of material nature & unable to practice your preaching well,I want to get rid of these inabilitues.I want to become good n serve you & your mission.I want to get initiated by your disciple, serve him throughout my life.Please give me strength for all of the above.I am fiiled with shame & going speechless to think of my sincerity.Unable to stand in front of you.Kindly use me as an instrument as well.Hare Krishna.Dandavats.??
. Srila Prabhupad,I just want to share a realization with you .ISKCON Whitefield had decided to celebrate Krishna janmashtami in one more area this year which is Bellandur.Though we were few volunteers working for it, at every step we were stuck n felt stumbling blocks in almost all the different fields.Everywhere we were loosing hopes & felt pressure of how to proceed further.Again by your mercy & by Krishna’s will the disturbances were getting cleared on its own.But what I realized at that time was though quite a few volunteers were working we could not spread the message in one area but you went alone to US struggled n initiated this organization of ISKCON at the age of 70.You are way beyond our imagination.Of course I know there is no comparison between you &us but still felt like mentioning this pass time of yours as a glorification.Thanks for all that you a have given us & have been giving us till now.Sticking to your lotus feet to not to deprive of your any little mercy also poured from you upon me .

जय जय जय प्रभुपाद,

आपके द्वारा किये गए कार्य का ही परिणाम है कि संसार में लोग भगवान कृष्ण के बारे मे जान पा रहे हैं। लोग जान पा रहे हैं कि जीवन का लक्ष्य क्या है। यदि आप न होते तो कलयुग मैं लोगों को कल्याण के मार्ग का पता कैसे चलता। कैसे पता चलता कि कृष्ण भक्ति ही सर्वोपरि है। आपने जिस अवस्था मे कृष्ण चेतना प्रसार का कार्य किया उस अवस्था में लोग दैनिक कार्य करने में बहुत कठिनाई महसूस करते है।

आपको कोटि कोटि प्रणाम करता हूं। मै भी प्रयास कर रहा हूँ कि मैं भक्ति में आगें बढ़ सकूँ।

मुझपे कृपा करें जिससे मन में न रहे कोई भी तृष्ना
मन में रहे तो बस कृष्णा कृष्णा कृष्णा।

जय जय जय प्रभुपाद।

Dear Srila Prabhupadji,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

How can I ever thank you enough for showing me the path of Krishna Consciousness?

A little while ago, I was in a very hopeless state. Life seemed to be a burdensome and pointless exercise. I was feeling very low and directionless. The question “What is the purpose of my life?” was bothering me a lot as I had no answer for the question.

It was then, I got introduced to Krishna Consciousness through the Gita classes. As I took baby steps in my Krishna Consciousness journey, my hopelessness was replaced by hopefulness and I am beginning to understand the purpose of human life.

It is only because of your causeless mercy and compassion to all souls, that the world has Krishna Consciousness. I beg for your mercy – to give me the strength and resolve to continue and progress in the path of Krishna Consciousness.

All glories to you.
All glories to the devotees.

Hare Krishna,

Your aspiring devotee

Respected,
Dear SRILA PRABHUPADA

Please accept my humble obeisances at your lotus feet

I am very insignificant to say something about you. I am very thankful to you for giving me this precious gift of Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON).

You took so much pain and put endless efforts to let us know about the real goal of human life. All these years l was wasting my life before coming to iskcon. My parents provided me education but you gave the true knowledge of Krishna consciousness and taught us the Hare Krishna maha mantra. My mother taught me cooking but you taught me how to cook for Krishna. Through your books you are helping me to get rid of all the anarthas. Association of devotees helps me to learn to serve guru and Gauranga.
Please be my eternal teacher as i have understood that it is a long way to go. Please forgive the numberless offenses I have comitted. I have no qualification and I don’t deserve all this…but you are an ocean of cause less mercy who is showering your blessing day and night.
I seek your guidance at every step. Now I have understood the meaning of “Yasya prasadad bhagvat prasado,yasya prasadan na gati kuto pi….”
I humbly beg you to not leave my hands in all the upcoming births ??

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my most humble obeisances on to your lotus feet.

While celebrating your 123rd appearance day at our IBC I heard your lecture where you mentioned about the meaning of Vyasa Puja, where you explained on importance of celebration of Vyasa Puja to devotees. I realised how you were eager to train your disciples to follow the great parampara we have.

You also mentioned about what a devotee do to progress in Krishna Consciousness and I felt extremely fortunate to have you my first class siksha guru.

On your birthday I’m not qualified to glorify you but for my purification I would like to do this. I’m happy today due to your hard work on writing books and preaching spirit. I can’t imagine where I would be if not in our ISKCON moment.

You have taken so much pain during initial years of this moment like travelling across the globe, writing books, cooking for devotees tirelessly at the age of seventy. I see you as a great mahatma having fabulous leadership qualities, love for your disciples and compassion towards jiva.

On this occasion I offer my heart and sole to you and our moment and will try to continue my services towards our cute IBC.

Thank you for all the love I and my family received by you and devotees of Krishna.

Dear Srila Prabhupäda,

Please accept my humble obeisances at the dust of your lotus feet, which deliver utmost secure shelter
for devotees seeking pure bhakti.

It has been a wonderful time and memorable experiences since I got connected to this great institution,
came to know the deeper aspects of devotional service and practical applications in day to day life by
the lone mercy of the devotees.

Revisiting, the past one year many thanks from the core of my heart that under devotee’s guidance I
have been engaged nicely performing my sadhana and rendering various other services as well which in-
turn helped me a lot to be more fixed and stable. Additionally, desire is there to do more towards this
great mission, but because of some on-going challenges/limitations mine efforts are being restricted.

Begging your mercy so that I can overcome such hovering impediments which directly limit the abilities
to deliver more and more time towards this noble drive simultaneously imparting the vision to see all
your instructions and indications of how to conduct my activities, words, and thoughts in such a way
that they bear the fruit of bhakti.

I bow down at your divine lotus feet again and again praying that I may always remember you, whatever
my situation may be.

Aspiring to be the servant of your servants,

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

PAMHO

There are so many ways in which I can glorify you, so many ways that you have bathed me in the ecstasy of your mercy:

– Chanting the Holy Name and dancing…

– Performing devotional service for the pleasure of Lord Krishna and His devotees…

– Preparing nice foodstuff for the Lord … and then honoring them…

But most of all you are glorious for your books in which you have revealed the whole spiritual world.

You have written about Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami: “He lives forever by his divine instructions, and the follower lives with him.” This also applies to you since you are permanently fixed at the lotus feet of your spiritual master. By your shining example, you show us how to be fixed in the service of guru, the pure representative of Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

Everyday I approach you for instruction by reading your books.

Everyday you show me how to accelerate my progress toward the supreme destination, the lotus feet of Sri Sri Radha and Krsna, by improving my chanting of the Holy Names:

Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare

Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare

By your pure teachings, I can understand that I am not this body made of material elements.

By your pure teachings, I can understand that the perfection of my life is to be cent percent engaged in the service of the Absolute Truth, Lord Sri Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead

My simple prayer, dear Grandfather Srila Prabhupada, is that I always be engaged as an instrument of Lord Krishna’s mercy without desire for material benefit.

I beg to remain in your service, eternally,

Your servant ,

I am too unqualified to write something about your unmatchable and limitless glorifications and your efforts to bring the mankind from the clutches of repeated life cycle of birth and death.

Please forgive for the offenses I may commit in this endeavor.

Somehow or other you have determined to bestow mercy upon me for many many years but I was so stubborn and rigid that I never listened to you.

But you being savior of whole universe, you never left me behind even after my ignoring attempts. You know very well my loop holes and you plotted a plan which I easily fallen prey. Before my self realizing what is happening to me, you sent the devotees in my life, you showed me a place to practice my devotional service and finally you sent your disciple to personally chisel me from the hard material entanglements.

What else this poor fallen soul will offer you other than surrendering myself at your lotus feet and take part in your mission?

Please allow me to remember your lotus feet all the time. I know as long as I am reciting your Pranam mantra, I know you are with me eternally and guiding me.

Dear HDG Srila Prabhupada,

I simply think that I am not at all qualified to write a Vyasa Puja offering to you but I thank to HG Hariksetra Prabhu that by his instruction I am writing it for you.

I thank you for all the mercy you have bestowed on me but I am so foolish that I don’t even know how much mercy you have given.

Chaksu daan dilo je, Janme Janme Karo se. You have given us the eyes to see this world, due to which we may not be subjected to ghastly mundane miseries like death and other and engage ourselves in the loving service of supreme Lord Krsna.

People like me don’t even understand how much great fortune it is to practice this process of Krsna Consciousness. We simply run for mundane pleasures of this material world.

I thank you that you have given me a beautiful place to stay in your movement. As it is said ‘Guru mukha Padma vakya, chittete koriya ekya, ara na kariho mane asha’. But I would like to humbly admit it to you that unfortunately I have very little or almost no attraction to read your books or hear your lectures. I simply beg for this attraction and I beg for your mood through which I can be an useless instrument in your movement.

Only you can help me my Dear Srila Prabhupada.

Please help me in this life itself I should perfect in Krishna consciousness and bless me so that I should preach to please you.

My dear spiritual grandfather Srila Prabhupada, please accept my humble obeisances at your lotus feet. All glories to you.
I am not at all qualified to offer homage to your exalted self. But for my purification I am doing.

Srila Prabhupada without your causeless mercy we would be no where. You have taken so much struggle to give this Krishna consciousness to us.

In this Kali Yuga which is an ocean of misery and hypocracy you have given us the easiest method to attain Godhead. CHANTING.

when I read your Lilamrita I was in tears reading the troubles you went through. And also when you were in the ship Jaladhutta you had severe heart attack . Still you prayed to Lord . You were a stranger in the western country. You knew no one there.when you landed there there was no one to welcome you and no one to take care of you. It was entirely a new place for you. You prayed to the Lord and also wrote prayers . You were very confident Even though you were 70.

Srila Prabhupada you have taken your spiritual master’s instruction as your life and soul.
Please bless this fallen soul to be an instrument in your movement. I want to give krishna to others and preach. But I am not confident on my self. Please bestow your causeless mercy on me so that I can boldly preach.

When ever I hear your lectures it is so simple and heart touching.

I once again beg at your lotus feet to bestow your mercy on this fallen soul and bless me and please save me from committing offences not only against Vaishnavas but also against others and be compassionate towards all.

Dear Srilla prabhupada, you are our real father,who understood our suffering in this material world and sacrifice your life to save us.

When ever I try to write anything in your glories and appreciation words fail me; this is because how much ever I want to express my love towards you it’s always less,and can never repay the debt what you have done for me.

In this world there are still many many many other people who has failed to take your mercy, I feel pity for them and also at the same time I feel even I was one of them but out of compassionate towards me you gave me your mercy by picking me from that suffering world to your ISKCON world through your loving devotees.

I am greatfull to you and your followers (devotees) all over the world for spreading Krishna consciousness through which souls like me can benefit and uplift our consciousness.

On this auspicious occasion of your appearance day just wanted to say Thank You!!!!

Offering by Abhishek Sharma

Dear Srila Prabhupad,

Please accept my humble obeisance at your lotus feet on 123 rd anniversary of your divine appearance. Although, it’s beyond my capacity to glorify you with my limited knowledge and words, still am doing this as my duty to serve the master on this Vyas puja day.

His divine grace – Nothing is hidden from you, you know that how fallen soul I am and how much bewildered I was in search of the true knowledge, till you came in to our life with your causeless mercy.

I still wonder why this mercy on me? Initially, you was like some other guru for me till I got a small glimpse of your journey to west during my participation in an ISKCON Gita course in 2013. But thereafter with your mercy only, I kept getting the association of pure devotees and always amazed to see the wonderful family environment you have created for all of us to progress in Krishna Consciousness. Later When I read your biography, it was a deep insight to your personality and mood – First time I got to know that how extraordinarily determined you are for the fulfillment of your Guru’s words, How much deep you are in terms of transcendental knowledge but still calm and composed, Your Every breath and Every word had a sole objective to serve Sri Guru and Sri Krishna only even after so many difficulties initially. Unlike others, you never kept yourself as center of your mission and thus it takes time for anyone including me to realize that you are not an ordinary guru of this material world but Lords representative.

Your whole life is a practical example of :-

vāco vegaṁ manasaḥ krodha-vegaṁ
jihvā-vegam udaropastha-vegam
etān vegān yo viṣaheta dhīraḥ
sarvām apīmāṁ pṛthivīṁ sa śiṣyāt

It is truly said that – “Even if the whole earth is transformed into paper with all the big trees made into pens and if the entire water in the seven oceans are transformed into writing ink, even then the glories of the Guru cannot be written. So much is the greatness of the Guru”

So, In last just want to pray once again at your lotus feet that – please keep all of us in your shelter and use us as your instrument in the service of Lord.

Offering by Ashutosh Kumar

Dear Srila Prabhupada

Please accept my respectful obeisance to you.

All glories to Chaitanya Mahaprabhu! All glories to you. All glories to all the devotees!

I am very grateful to you for your teachings as well as giving me the opportunity to be part of wonderful Hare Krishna movement which changed my course of life completely.

Before I came in touch with Krishna Consciousness, I was indulging in all abominable acts which are royal gate to hellish conditions of life, but I was foolishly thinking them to be source of enjoyment and suffering continuously. Gradually the suffering in ignorance became so much more that I was completely hopeless in life. Even after searching for a solution for many years at various so-called religious and spiritual organizations, meeting and listening to self-styled Guru, Gods as well as by reading various books in these topics, I was clueless about the purpose of life and started thinking that there is no real purpose of life.

I was in complete darkness, in the mode of ignorance throughout my life but now it had become intolerable but by your mercy I met a devotee called Sri Sanjay Jain Prabhu at my work place. This was the lifesaver event for me because after listening to so many renowned so-called spiritual persons and completely dejected with life due to immense suffering, there was no hope for me but here I was listening to my college who was full of hope, who could answer all my queries with amazing clarity on the purpose of life and practical implementation of them. Sanjay Prabhu took personal interest in me, very patiently spent countless hours with me, taking me to temple, feeding me Prasadam, talking about Krishna, Bhagavad Gita philosophy, fascinating pass times from Bhagavatam, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Six Goswamis, pass times from Chaitanya Charitamritam, introducing me to devotees, talking about life of a devotee and many more things which are endless.

I have so many things to tell but I can’t express all of them here. However, I would like to tell you that I have not been able to estimate the greatness and sacrifice done by Sanjay Prabhu for me so how can I ever understand what kind of sacrifices you have done throughout your life for saving the whole world.

Still, out of countless sacrifices done by you, what made me cry was that you were alone in a foreign country and struggling for so many things but at bare minimum even food was not available to a great saintly and renowned person in India, who could meet the then Prime Minister but you continued your sacrifices to spread this movement so that an insignificant person like me, who is fit for severe punishment, but still by your mercy, persons like me also can be saved from this dangerous condition of life.

I must admit Prabhupad that even after going through so much of trials and tribulations in my life, I am so fool that I have not learned much, I haven’t been sincere, consistent in my devotional practices and still trying very hard to follow the basics rules and regulations. I am begging for your mercy and forgiveness for all of my mistakes so that somehow or other I a fallen soul like me can remain in the association of devotees.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada,

om ajnana-timirandhasya jnananjana salakaya caksur unmilitam yena tasmai sri-gurave namah.

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

You are an inspiration for me. You have given meaning to my life else I was meandering in this material world aimlessly. When I am trying to write, I do not know from where to start.

You have given us everything. How beautifully you have created Krishna consciousness setup for Grihasthas like us.

You have made it so simple for materially conditioned soul like me. Only thing I have to do is just glide in & follow your instructions (Chant Hare Krishna Maha mantra, Hearing, do service , associate with devotees & read Srila Prabhupad’s book) but that itself is so challenging for me. I pray to you Srila Prabhupad to shower your mercy on me so that I can follow your instructions whole heartedly else I am nowhere qualified.

Srila Prabhupada, You are the messiah for me. I always get moved when I hear how on the instruction of Guru Maharaj His Divine Grace Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur, you went to USA to spread Krishna consciousness at the age of 70 when most of us retire. Within span of 10 years, you have converted so many conditioned souls into wonderful devotees in & around the world. Never ever it has happened before. In the old age, to do something like that is miracle. You are pure devotee of Krishna who had come to this world to inspire us to take Krishna consciousness & take us back to Godhead.

Srila Prabhupada, when I read your books, I feel, you are instructing me through your books. Now, I understand why you slept only for 2 hours & constantly endeavor to write books & record on Dictaphone. It was for us. Your books have saved so many souls in this world. These books are my savior too. Wonder how my life would have been, if you would not have come in my life.

“yadi prabhupada na hoite tabe ki hoite jivana bahite kise” written by HH Jayapataka Swami Maharaj always ring in my head.

Even though I am nowhere qualified but you have given me hope. I beg you to bless me even with tinge of your mercy so that I can progress in Krishna consciousness.

Thank you so much Srila Prabhupad. I will be forever indebted

I am a fresher here. I feel very fortunate to be in association with your army. I get inspired everyday looking at the dedication of each of the devotee in Krishna Consciousness. Though i repent for having spent nearly half of my lifetime without knowing anything about KC, i am sure that God had his own plans as to when and where to show the path.

If not for you i would have spent the rest of my life without knowing the main goal of a human being. The sufferings and the sacrifice that you have done to spread Krishna Consciousness all over the world is unparalleled. We are ever indebted to you.

I seek your blessings to make progress in this path of devotion. Please guide me so that i can rectify the mistakes that i make. Though it has been a few months, i feel that you are already guiding us whenever we are stuck with any roadblocks. Thank you so much for giving this opportunity to express myself. Hare Krishna

Prabhupada you are the most merciful person in the world. Without you …..ISKCON, Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavatam, service to Lord Krisna, service to the devotees would not be possible.

You made the whole world to know how to serve the Lord. Due to this we learn many good qualities and overcome our anarthas. Without you i would have been living like an animal. Its because of you we understood real purpose of human life. Thank you showing mercy on me by selecting me for Krishna Consciousness in-spite of so many souls in the material world. But i am so stupid that i couldn’t serve you and your mission to 100 percent. I am so fallen and degraded to understand Lord Krishna and his devotees that in-spite of you giving all that we want to do Krishna Consciousness easily , for which you struggled hardly. Srila Prabhupada, you have given us so valuable thing which cannot be equaled by anything in the material world. Prabhupada please shower mercy upon me so that i could serve you and your mission to my capacity at any point in my life.

Your servant,
Divya

Dear Srila Prabhupada
Please accept my respectful obeisance.

Srila Prabhupada in one of his quotes about chanting says that
“The chanting is a spiritual call for the Lord and His energy, to give protection to the conditioned soul and
One’s chanting should be exactly like the genuine cry of a child for its Mother’s presence”

I can never forget these lines of quote and one of my goals is always to maintain this mood of a child looking for his Mother, while chanting the
holy name:
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna
Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare

On your auspicious Vyasapuja I pray and seek your blessings to get into this mood while I chant every day!

Srila Prabhupada ki Jai Jai

Hare Krishna Srila Prabhupad dandavat pranam,

I have been carrying the burden of life, until I met one of the follower of ISKCON. The whole life changed after that, the jewels in the form of scriptures with proper understanding becomes part of my life.

Instead of pulling the burden of life, now it is replaced with pulling the cart of Lord Jagannath. Due to your mercy things are on right direction, still the struggle is on to perfect the life. Progress is slow but a sense of satisfaction is there that someday the goal of life will be achieved.

My life is indept to you for spreading the knowledge of scriptures and reaching to the creatures like me who are happily distressed in this world and searching for contentment everywhere.

My heartfelt gratitude to you and to all the disciples of yours who are giving the light of knowledge and changing the life of fallen soul like me.

Your Servant of Servant..

Dear Srila Prabhupada,
Please accept my humble obesciences.
All Glories to Your Divine Grace.

I have heard that there are souls that are seeking for meaning in life, on a quest for something; and others that have come to Krishna consciousness by sheer mercy. I belong to the latter category.

By Your Divine mercy, I came in contact with Bhagavad-Gita As It Is. Your presence can be felt in your books. You are so kindly giving your precious association to innumerable souls, including my fallen self. I beg Your mercy to able to take that association, and grow, so that one day I can render some service to You, Your mission.

You have given direction to this undeserving, puffed up soul, and continue to do so, by Your books, pure disciples and followers of yours, and the oasis in the desert of the material world in the form of temples.

Thank you Srila Prabhupada.

Seeking your blessings to be able to absorb Your Divine instructions and engage in spreading this movement,

Your eternal servant,
Bhargavi.

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to you!

On the auspicious day of your 123 rd Vyasa Puja, I shall attempt to glorify and thank you with some shallow words. I have absolutely no qualification or competence, all that I have and always long for is your mercy. You are magnanimous and have very mercifully presented the gift of Hari Nama to insignificant and useless souls like me, and yet, I have no taste for It.

As Caitanya Mahaprabhu distributed nectar and as you took this nectar far and wide, I have shamelessly chosen poison instead. Please forgive me for my shameless and materialistic actions. I was knocking on the doors of hell, and you rescued me from myself, my wrong doings and gave me the greatest
treasure. I am eternally indebted to you.

Srila Prabhupada, you are an embodiment of the very first principle, ‘I am not this body but a spirit soul.’ At the advanced age of 69, you went to the West to preach. There was no need to do this, but to fulfil the instructions of your spiritual master, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura, and out of compassion for the suffering living entities, you took up the Herculean task of going to a foreign land to preach. Although you went through extreme physical difficulties, your enthusiasm to preach was undeterred. You went through so much, just out of compassion for the fallen living entities. You had expressed compassion even towards lower animals like slugs. This shows how you practised what you preached- you’re not this body but a spirit soul.

Your firm faith and urge to fulfil the instructions of your spiritual master, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura, depicts true guru nistha. A good guru is a good disciple and who would set a better example than you? 

Your strong conviction that Krishna takes care of His devotees is unmatched. I pray to you that someday I could also develop at least 1% of your faith and conviction. 

Srila Prabhupada, you not only taught us how to live perfectly but also how to die perfectly. You taught the world every aspect of life based on the scriptures, in your lectures and books. You gave us the perfect knowledge.

I beg at your lotus feet to bless me so that I could imbibe some of your qualities. The world has been blessed by your mercy. Please forgive me for my offences and bless me so that I do not commit offences further. Please spread your mercy on me so that I can follow your teachings. I have no intelligence of my own. Everything that I have is all by your mercy.

Your most useless and insignificant servant,

Hare Krishna Srila Prabupada, 

All glories to you Srila Prabhupada 

Please accept my humble obeisances unto your lotus feet
“nama om vishnu-padaya krishna-preshthaya bhu-tale
srimate bhaktivedanta-svamin iti namine
namas te saraswate deve gaura-vani-pracarine

I am really an insignificant creature to thank you and glorify you Srila Prabhupada. 

It’s first time in my life when I am trying to write somthing to you Prabhupada, kindly forgive me for any mistake due to my negligence. First of all, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you Srila Prabhupada for everything you did and continuously doing with your books for delivering so many souls of this material world. Because of you Srila Prabhupada I got opportunity to understand real meaning of life and my relationship with Supreme Lord Krishna.

Many people criticize that ISKCON is an US organization and not Indian organization, but we know the reality how because of all your effort at the age of 70, carrying mission of your spiritual master in the heart, travelled 7 oceans with hardly no money, no man power, ISKCON got established from scratch. Thank you Srila Prabhupada for creating such a nice platform with complete process of devotion for all of us so that we can think and act for Krishna always.

I keep trying to read your books and listen to your lectures Prabhupada but due to my laziness and negligence I am really struggling hard. Kindly help me to overcome my laziness and be merciful on me so that I can first become Krishna Conscious servant and then become a nimat matra in spreading the mission of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu under your guidance.

Offering by Vikram Caitanya Das

Dear Srila Prabhupada,
Please accept my most humble obeisances unto your lotus feet on this auspicious occasion of your Vyasa Puja!!

I cant thank you enough for what you have given to me and all of us in this age – Hari naam – The Hare Krishna Mahamantra. You have made us understand its meaning that it is the Yuga Dharma – Harer Namaiva Kevalam. The Holy name is the only savior in the age of Kali.

You have also given us the devotee association, which is like one big family taking care of us anywhere we go in the world. All are serving each other selflessly to help grow together in our self-realization. Had it not been for you, we would have continued to be lost in the useless journey of sense gratification without any aim in life. Life as I knew then was meant to enjoy as we didn’t know when it will end and it was the only one chance we got. I used to know little bit of religious practices, through family, friends but mostly as rituals that had to be done and not its meaning. Had questions which were mostly unanswered and were left to own interpretations. Religious activities these days are becoming opinions of individuals as they choose and also adjusting the dates to make for weekend holidays which gives us opportunities for enjoyment.

When I look back now I realize what ignorance I was in. Today, I still am in ignorance, but by your mercy, now I know the purpose of life and I am trying to make an attempt to walk towards the ultimate goal of attaining Krishna.

We are forever indebted to you for the knowledge you have given us. You had put so much efforts in giving us this knowledge, you used to sleep only for couple of hours in your old age to write the books. You had even fainted while distributing Back to Godhead magazine. If we exert a little bit we need a good rest. Can’t even imagine what you did at the age you did in.

Because of your efforts we all have some hope to make our life a success. The Vedic knowledge is spreading all over the world through your books and your Vani. People in general are coming to know of self, God and our relationship. We heard from people during Janmashtami festival, that they were looking for God and a place to celebrate Janmashtami and were very happy to be celebrating with ISKCON. All because of your causeless mercy!!

Prabhupada, I pray at your lotus feet to please bless me that I can read your books regularly so that I can make an attempt to move closer to Krishna. Please bless our humble center,IBC,that we all stay united in our service to spread Krishna Consciousness around for your pleasure!

Your servant,

Dear Srila Prabhupada,
Please accept my humble obeisances at your lotus feet.

namah om vishu padaya Krsna prestaya bhutale Srimate Bhaktivedanta swamin iti namine namaste sarawati deve Gaura vani pracharine nirvishesha shunyavaadi paschatya desha taarine

Srila Prabhupada, every year as I write the Vyas Puja offering I cannot but just keep thanking you again and again for the mercy you shower on us. It is only that which keeps me going.

During a discussion one of your disciples HG Yogeswara prabhu asked a question, “Prabhupada, suppose there are two people equally qualified for devotional service, but one becomes a devotee and other does not. What makes the difference?”, you replied “don’t try to find some formula for causeless mercy it’s causeless ultimately it’s up to the mercy giver.”

Srila Prabhupada, you simply exhibit the qualities of a Jagadguru, just like how Sri ramanujacharya announced from the top of the temple, the secret Mantra that was given by his Guru to go back to Godhead.

You never asked anyone to fill up any questionnaire for go through some kind of test to be a part of the movement or to initiate. About the young westerners who would come for your shelter, you firmly believed that they have been mercifully sent by your Guru maharaja to assist in your service to Guru and Krsna. Being a Jagadguru this was your humility. You were simply a mercy giver like Prahlad Maharaj.

If I look back at my life, everything was so complicated. Even basic maturity was lacking in me, practicing devotional life was a far cry. I did not know how to think, how to act, how to behave, how to respond to others, how to respond to relations, how to respond to situations, I was such a dumb person. I did not know how to think about myself about this life. There was never a time I felt even negligible amount of confidence in what I was doing. And then there is a part of life where I’ve been associated with your moment and I can clearly see my life before and after. The more I practice your instructions the more there is clarity in my thoughts like never before. The point being, was I ever qualified for it? No never, neither am i now!

Srila Prabhupada, due to my faith in Guru and Krsna, which is work in progress, I do not know if I will go back to godhead in this lifetime but one thing is absolutely clear that I am on the right track.

Your disciple HG Pushkar Prabhu who was an artist, who painted several murals in many temples in ISKCON. While prabhu was painting a door on the second floor in Mayapur with the scene of Krishna Balram jumping off a big mountain, you happen to walk by and you asked how long has this taken him. Prabhu, being humble and feeling overly conscious, replied “it taken a week and I am very slow”. To that you replied “slowly but surely” and kept walking very cool and relaxed. Another instance, you looked at his paintings and remarked “you are expert you should simply paint the disciplic succession and you will go back to godhead”. You made it look so simple, the process of going back to Godhead. I clearly see that you were pleased by his sincerity in service, dedication and faith which I lack. I beg of you, kindly bless upon me that i lose my duplicity and become an obedient servant to the Vaishnavas without which it would take me many many lifetimes even to desire of Going back to Godhead. However it is only your causeless mercy that i’m totally relying upon.

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada !!!

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

I have interacted with many people during book distribution, glorifying you after reading the books. These interactions with people helped me to realize your endless effort to make this world Krishna Conscious through your books. This is your selfless contribution for all and people will always be loving and will be grateful to you for your service to them/all.

You are an Ocean of Mercy who traveled to west to preach krsna consciousness, who wrote the books to bring people closer to Krsna. You were always compassionate to all the people to take them from material world to Back to God-head

I remember when I got introduced in Krishna Consciousness by a group of devotees and brought to BACE where I saw some of your instructions to preach in colleges. If you would not have given the instructions to preach the students, fallen soul like me would never get chance to relish devotional service. This is you,who were always be merciful to all and because of you people in this material world got a chance to understand krsna.

This is your eternal insignificant servant will always be grateful to you !!!

All Glories All Glories All Glories to you Prabhupada!!!

By your mercy Prabhupada we got connected to Krishna conscious movement in 2016.

From my childhood I always use to think what’s the purpose of life should be, is it only just studying, growing, get a good job earn money, get married, have children and that solve.

But I never got these answers and later these questions itself got lost within myself because of this attraction towards illusionary world, but after 2016 Janmashtami, by your mercy I could start getting answers to these questions slowly.

You have given your mercy in form of ABCD and I think because of that Krishna consciousness has entered my conditioned life and has brought lot of good changes.

Now I am struggling with my anarthas, I want to imbibe these behaviour ‘trnad api sunicena taror api sahisuna amanina nmanadena kirtaniyah sada harih’ in myself.

I know Srila Prabhupad I am so fallen, still I beg for your mercy please give me some of these qualities.

Please bless me Prabhupada, so that I can serve all the Vaisnavas with right mood and become a small soldier in your mission, this is possible only by your mercy Prabhupada.

Thank you very much Prabhupad for giving us such a wonderful association of Vaisnavas in ISKCON.

Please accept my most humble Obeisance!
All Glories to You!
All Glories to Guru and Gauranga!

Kindly accept my humble obeisances at your Divine lotus feet on this most auspicious event of your 123th Vyasa Puja.

Srila Prabhupad, before coming to Krishna consciousness , I was very much impressed with the struggle of bollywood actor Amitabh Bachhan and he was my ideal. How he continuous gave 16 flop movies and then become legend of bollywood.

But when I saw your autobiography then I realized in front of your efforts to carry out the order of your spiritual master and starting the world wide movement single handedly, Amitabh Bachhan’s struggle was nothing and after that you became my ideal.

I started watching all your vedios on youtube and then I finished Abhay Charan series and remembering Prabhupad series and I fall in love with you Srila Prabhupad. Even today also whenever any devotee start telling your pastimes it’s so pleasing to ears.Whenever I feel low in devotional life , I start hearing your hindi lectures and these lectures give me lot of boost and sometime great laughter also when you argue with reporters.

From the age of 14 around I was looking for one question’s answer, what happens after death but now by your Divine Grace ‘s mercy and Guru and Krishna’s mercy all doubt are clear and we got clear goal in our life and this give us great relief. Slowly and slowly my family members also becoming devotees now. We will be very grateful to your Divine Grace life after life and on this auspicious occasion of Vyasa Puja we pray to Lord Krishna that your glories should spread like anything in the coming days and more fallen souls like me get the chance to hear them and can get relief from this material existence.

Offering by Sidhartha Subudhi

Dear Prabhupada,

please accept my Dandavat Pranama.

Let me tell one incident and my realization:

In my college days when I was studying in Puri, got chance to see the world famous Rath yatra of Lord Jagnnath, Baladev and Subhadra live physically, though I had seen this in television earlier. This was a different experience for me which I am unable to put in words here. Yet more exciting was to see a group of white people dancing and doing Kirtan in front of the 3 raths, in the middle of the big crowd and few more people cordoning them.

Out of anxiety and curiosity I asked one of my friends who are they, where are they from and being foreigners how do they know about Lord Jagannath. My friend said they are ISKCON people, the term I heard for the first time also my friend didn’t know more than this. Till then it was my general perception that Westerners are atheists and their culture is quite different than that of Indian culture.

After residing few years in Bangalore, I happened to visit ISKCON and attended Bhakti Vriksha. And then I came to know the answer to my question – “how the Westerners are devotee of Lord Jagnnath?”, that was dormant in my heart.

I got answer to my question: PRABHUPADA, you were the reason behind Westerner’s knowledge about Lord Jagannath.

You are the founder and architect of ISKCON, which you established with a lot of pain, effort and vision. And more importantly you followed your Guru’s instructions by soul and heart to achieve this.

I had little understanding of GOD and Bhakti in a very orthodox and traditional manner. You gave true logical and analytical understanding of Bhakti and Vaishnavism to the world and true meaning of GOD. You showed true purpose of life, the actual art of living. You showed a path by which one can lead simple yet happy life above stress and anxiety just by surrendering to Krishna and following Guru’s instructions. You gave so much simple empathetic explanation of Shastras and how to follow them.

You explained the purpose of temples is to give real education to human being is very important.

You have given very good and impressive meaning of religion and philosophy as below:

Religion without philosophy is sentiment, or sometimes fanaticism, while philosophy without religion is mental speculation.

Though we are living in Kali Yuga, you showed how the entire world can live happily and peacefully just by depending on KRISHNA and associating with devotees – a practical implementation of “Vasundhara Kutumbakam”.

Your greatest contributions to the world are:
– Your books/Letters
– Lectures
– Instructions

Though I am very small to appreciate you in any manner I just noted few of my realizations to purify myself and help myself in advancing in Krishna Consciousness.

You are very compassionate in distributing your mercy to even the most fallen souls like me. I am very obliged and grateful to you for everything.

All glories to you Srila Prabhupada.

Srila Prabhupad,
On the auspicious occasion of Your 123rd Vyas Puja, I offer my humble obeisance at Your lotus feet. You are the most merciful representative of the Lord who appeared to save the suffering humanity in this point of time and save us from hellish life. I was living in oblivion, completely lost without any knowledge or awareness of myself, my purpose or anything around me. By Your mercy You picked me up just by Your glance. I remember how in 1994 I first saw the Krishna book and opened it out of curiosity.

I was taken over by the enchanting pictures of the Lord and His pastimes. I began reading the bala lilas and was completely mesmerized. I remember how I read over and over again especially the subduing of kaliya and killing of the demons. I exactly remember Your description of the Lord dancing over the hood of Kaliya serpent – the Lord’s feet are tender like lotus flowers but it weighed like a mountain on Kaliya’s hood and he vomited poison. It is the power of Your description, Your pure love for Krishna.

I am too small to understand even how to begin Your Divine Grace’s glorification. I have recently finished 95% of leelamrta and it is undoubtedly the most impactful book I have read in my entire life. I can feel how it has changed me inside out. Just by reading Your pastimes I have developed traces of faith. Its not mine. Its Yours which is so infectious! The grit with which You faced obstacles to Your mission to spread God consciousness and defeated it everytime by your personal power fueled by Your unshakeable faith and unalloyed devotion, is the most inspiring element for me in all Your pastimes. It teaches me to believe in Krishna, that He will give protection and His plans are for my ultimate welfare, no matter how bad the situation looks, apparently.

You sacrificed Your life for humanity. Your books have touched millions of souls on this planet irrespective of their past or present credentials. You have picked up every unworthy stone and are carving each one into a sculpture. and this is the greatest thing that humanity can witness and will remember forever in the history of mankind. I feel very very lucky to be a part of all the big change you are ushering on this planet and to be a part of Your family is the greatest benediction and fortune of all of my existence. Srila Prabhupad though I am unworthy, You blessed with the benediction of being a disciple of HH Gopal Krishna Goswami Guru Maharaj. please bless me with the fortune of also being His instrument in Your preaching mission, to be worthy to serve Him and hence You.

By the association of devotees, I am encouraged to take baby steps in Your movement to work for You and please You, through tiny services, which is so insignificant in this grand scheme of things! yet its an important step for my journey, because there’s so much to do for You. please help me to take strides forward to increase my surrender and commitment to You and work hard for spreading Your glories, teachings and mission. This is what I really want for myself. Please keep me determined, to be stuck to this purpose and use everything in and around me for this purpose.

Srila Prabhupad, please forgive my offences to You and Your family members that I might have done knowingly and unknowingly. I beg Your pardon for all my mistakes and please help me to improve and hold Your hand, firmly and walk forward on the path of Krishna Bhakti, to learn – to serve and love.

Your little helpless grandchild aspiring to be a part of your mission,

Please accept my respectful obeisance
All glories to you.

Caksur unmilitam yena tasmai sri-gurave namah

I was born in the darkest ignorance, and my spiritual master opened my eyes with the torch of knowledge. I offer my respectful obeisances unto him.

I offer my respectful obeisances on to your lotus feet millions of times on this auspicious day of your appearance.

I don’t have any qualification to glorify you. I am so fallen and degreaded where I need more mercy from you to continue in KC.

After many many life’s where I have wasted it in sense gratification and material enjoyment now by the mercy of all the great vaisnava I came in kc and staying with vaisnavas association. But still by my past karma and samskaras I am not able to relish fully KC and chanting holy names and association of vaisnava devotees.

I wanted to preach more and more and connect many souls to Krishna’s lotus feet. This can be happen just by your mercy. I am very much interested in deity worship and feel very close to Krishna when I serve them. In future I have hope that I will serve the big deities and nicely decorated them and in this way I wanted to preach and serve guru and Krishna and leave this body at the lotus feet of Krishna.

I have committed many offences and I am doing my best to stop committing offences and focus on chanting. By the mercy of all the vaisnava devotees I became your grand son which I consider very fortunate. Kindly bless me so that I can continue in KC and stay in Iskcon till my last breath like a soled dog.

I am trying to read and understand Krishna through your books. Still I am struggling very hard just to read what to say about understanding Krishna by your books.  I have no reason to demand your mercy as I have not done anything which would please you. But I need your mercy. I am hoping on it as my only hope.

Thank you Srila Prabhupada.

Dearest Srila prabhupada,
Please accept my humble obeisances at your lotus feet!!
All glories to your divine grace.

A Septuagenerian leaving the soothing comforts of Brindavan to preach in the US surviving two heart attacks, dear Srila Prabhupad you have epitomized the very word “mercy”. It is because of your magnanimity in spreading the love of Krishna that I am in deep appreciation of the purpose of my own life.

I see a personally addressed instruction in every word of your books. Though I come from a pious family background I did not have a perfect understanding of whom to please and whom to direct my devotion to. Your instructions on why lord Krishna is supreme has made my devotion undivided. Your instructions are now my life and soul. I consider myself extremely fortunate that through your causeless mercy I have true vaishnava association. We now chant, sing and dance merrily knowing how our life is now having a true purpose. Thanks you so much dear Srila Prabhupad for everything.

Hare Krishna,
I read Prabhupada books daily and I am doing it since many months. Because of his books I am able to have the spiritual knowledge. Due to this spiritual knowledge my faith in Krishna is increasing and my entanglement into little material things is decreasing. If I will not read his books then I will read things which are of little or no benefit to me.

I have read his abridged biography book in which I came to know how he worked hard to parallely write books, give lectures, giving management ideas to his disciples. He is my inspiration.

Dear Srila Prabhupada.

All glories to Your Divine Grace.

Currently I am reading your life biography and it is simply wonderful and relishing than Srimad Bhagavatam. Every moment of your life is inspiring.

You had gone through ocean of obstacles and short comings to deliver us from this filthy place.

I feel myself to be fortunate being under your shelter. Your mercy upon me is just causeless because I feel I am not at all qualified to practice devotional life and render some service to Krishna.


You are always very very special and highly inspirational to me because what you gave me is incomparable to any other things I got in my life. There were times I was desperately looking for happiness and searching for it in many ways. Through different yoga systems, going to different spiritual organizations in Bangalore… but nothing gave me contentment as much as conviction and satisfaction I got through your books and your teachings. Your books are simply the words of Krishna. They are the reservoir of Krishna mercy. Just like when sun is present the darkness is dissipated. Similarly the knowledge and teachings you gave are torch light for this blind human society. I cant repay what you gave me but i can only beg you to make me remain in your shelter. When I started reading your books I really felt this is what I have been looking for.

Had you been not come to my life I have no idea how pathetic my life would have been and unimaginable how many lifetimes I have to be in this mire of nescience of material existence. This place is really filthy and no sane man like to live here. 

You have got such wonderful Vaishnava qualities. Your mood is always amazing. Not taking any credit for yourself but always giving it to your disciples or your Gurudev. I am amazed by your humility and saintly conduct. By your mercy if i can draw drop of these qualities , get that mood i consider my devotional life is successful. I am pleading at your lotus feet dear Srila Prabhupad that somehow kindly be merciful to me, make me a good servant of yours and your dear disciple HH Jayapataka Swami Guru Maharaja. 

I don’t think I had ever done any service to you but striving to attempt to do little services to my capacity.

Please forgive me for all the offences I did and kindly help me become a good and sincere servant.

Thank you.

Namah Om Vishnu Padaya Krishna Preshtaya Bhutale, Srimate BhaktiVedanta Swamin iti Namine.
Namaste Saarasvate Deve Gauravani Pracharine Nirvishesha Sunya Vadi Paschatya Desha Tarine

Dear Srila Prabhupad, Pls accept my humble obeisances unto dust of your lotus feet.

On the auspicious occasion of your Vyas Puja, I would like to meditate on some of the important messages that you have shown to the whole world by your own personal example. Who could be more merciful than you who has created a house where whole world can live peacefully.

You have always stressed that God is one and the Holy name of the Lord is so powerful that everyone irrespective of their religion, caste, creed and Race can take shelter of this holy name. So there is no conflict or dissimilarity . All can come under single roof of the house that you have built which are blessed by all previous acharyas.

You have always taken the words of your Spiritual master , Srila BhaktiSiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur as your life and soul. Despite having several discomforts you have fulfilled the desire of your spiritual master. The words meditated by you were that when you have received the Crest Jewel of Harinam it has to be distributed far and wide . Just as great Vaishnava Acharya Sri Ramanujacharya who have distributed the Narayana Mantra to all so have you spread the Holy name through out the world. So are your dear disciples taking part in spreading the holy name.

Faith in the holy name is one another important characteristic that you have deep rooted in your heart. In this Kali yuga, you have shown by your own example that Faith in Holy name can cross us easily this material ocean of desires and illusion. You have exemplified that Faith in the holy name stands as a pillar and binds us to the holy name.

You have always said that the holy scriptures could be relished through ears. Reading and Hearing the scriptures like Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavatam and Chaitanya Charitamrita relieves us from material anxieties. You have always stressed to hear from Vaishnavas acharyas. You have also made it clear that whenever Japa is done, it should be properly heard too. This is the best medicine for ill effects of Kali.

You have always instructed that one should always be in association of devotees. This is like a fencing that guards one from falling down or from getting away from the Bhakti. All your disciples and grand disciples are so enthusiastic that they always hanker to be in association of devotees and provide helping hands and pull others who are dwelling in maya or fallen in to clutches of maya by lack of devotee association.

Pls bless me that I develop a dint of the faith in holy name and I never move away from the association of devotees . I may relish the beautiful pastimes of lord and his devotees through a proper disciplined reading and hearing, thus improving the standards of my Sadhana and Service.

Your Spiritual Grand daughter,

Sirisa Haripriya Devi Dasi

Hare Krishna dear Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Sri Guru and Gauranga.
All glories unto your lotus feet Srila Prabhupada.

Before I write this small offering, I seek blessings and permission from my spiritual master HH RP Bhakti Raghava Swami maharaj (ACBSP) , through whom I connected to His Divine Grace A.C.Bhakitivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada and the transcendental parampara of Brahma-Madhva-Gaudiya sampradaya.

Dear Srila Prabupada, thank you very much for choosing this planet to enter and allowing me to connect to this spiritual world which you created in this material world. With your mercy, I am fortunate to get association of so many of your disciples and sincere followers, who keeps inspiring me to grow in Krishna Consciousness. I am very fortunate to connected to you who is the senapati bhakta of the sankirtan movement of Sri Chaitanya mahaprabhu as mentioned in Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita. All glories unto you dear Srila Prabhupada, to who else can be given glories if it is not your divine grace, who set the standards and direct examples in all the fields and stages of a human life to show the mankind to become, stay and grow in Krishna Consciousness.

Just like the tenth canto of Srimad Bhagavatam is the Summum Bonum, Your Divine Grace is the highest good in the succession of the all acharyas. Your Divine Grace is the manifestation of the desires and mercy of previous acharyas in line of disciplic succession to preach and propagate Krishna Consciousness and the standard for acharyas of next generations. I repeatedly beg at your lotus feet to shower mercy upon me and other followers of yours and keep us engaged in your missions. Kindly empower me to face the material world and keep me in continuous touch with the spiritual activities as recommended by your divine grace. Bless me to understand your mood and mission, through your books, lectures and other forms as you desire, to give a purpose to this present life of mine and execute it as you desire.

Thank you again and again, dear Srila Prabhupada. All glories unto you and all glories to Sri Guru and Gauranga.

His Divine Grace A.C.Bhakitivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada ki Jaya.

Your servant forever,
Prafullakumar Seelam

Dear Srila Prabhupad

Your mission has given Vision to our lives. I was wondering in the search of glory and pride when suddenly I stumbled upon this Hare Krishna movement. Your teachings taught me the real purpose of my life. Your teachings brought the realization that I was chasing the mirage of this material world which is “dukhalayam ashashwatam”.

Prabhupad without your blessings in the form of Bhakt Sangha, your books, the Ratha Yatra and kirtans, “yasy-aprasadan na gatih Kutoh api” , we would not be able to move an inch towards the absolute realization; the Bhagavan realization.

You showed us the path, a systematic approach for the upliftment of our consciousness. This in the first place made us a better human being. However, we are still in the process of endeavoring to become a devotee. Each day I fall and each day your books pick me up.

You taught the real meaning of Devotional Service which is to serve the lord with love and channelize everything in the service of God and not merely meditate on him and do nothing. You taught compassion when you made the hippies your first disciples. Your books answer all the questions which arise due to our materially contaminated conditions.

Your mission made ISKCON which gave me a family. The unconditional love which I got from this family is a true reflection of your mood which is imbibed in all the devotees. ISKCON is the only community where people yearn to render selfless service simply to contribute to your mission.

I got this opportunity to render my offering, is, in itself a piece of your mercy, as I am certainly not qualified to talk about you amongst the devotees who have been practicing for years together. I may be one of the most insignificant parts of your mission but I feel fortunate enough to be a part.

Hare Krishna!!

Offering by Gaura Raya Das

Dear Srila Prabhupada,
Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to you.

Your glories are unlimited. I am not qualified to speak about you, but I will speak for my own purification.
First of all I would like to thank you for giving me the wonderful gift of Krishna consciousness. otherwise I would have been lying some where in the laps of Maya.
Prabhupada, To follow the instructions of your guru maharaj you had travelled to other countries in your old age.

At old age other people just take retirement and sit at home. And you at old age travelled to countries and spread the glories of holy name, build temples , trained people who even didn’t knew who is Krishna, wrote many books with sleepless nights. All this in small span of time, It’s all Divine power and it’s beyond my understanding.

I feel very fortunate to be in your organization and in association of devotees.
Please bless me that I always remain in the association of devotees, never loose the taste in chanting the holy name and serve the vaishnavas selflessly.
Because of yours and acharyas mercy I am now officially connected to the glorious gaudiya sampradaya. HH Radhanath Swami maharaj accepted me as his disciple and gave the name Gaura Raya Das. My humble prayers at your lotus feet that, till last breath of my life I remember and follow the initiation vows.

Please grant me benediction that I never forget the mood and mission of yours and always strive to achieve it through the instructions of guru maharaj and senior vaishnavas.

Again I beg for association of devotees and be under the guidance of senior vaishnavas and be the servent of your servents.

Srila prabhupada ki Jai.

Dear Respected Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my respectful obeisance’s. All glories to you !!

I want to thanks for changing my life, and only because of you and your disciples I realized the power of Krishna consciousness. I realize now I have wasted so, many precious years and took many days to come to KC, I am praying now on your lotus feet please bestow your mercy on me so that at least from this life I should be in KC and always remain in KC.

I am very insignificant to say something about you. But I am very thankful to you for giving me this precious gift of Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON).

While celebrating your 123rd appearance day at our IBC I heard your lecture from senior devotees which opened my eyes and soul that how much struggle you have gone through in your life to change life of people and bring them in to KC. It is your greatness and dedication that you went to NY at the advanced stage of 70 years and spread the message of Krishna Consciousness, even though there was so much diversity of Culture.

You have taken so much pain during initial years to spread this moment like travelling across the globe, writing books, cooking for devotees tirelessly at the age of seventy. I see you as a great mahatma having fabulous leadership qualities, love for your disciples and compassion towards all. Please always be my guide as still there is a long way to go. Please forgive all my offenses I have committed over the years. I have no qualification and I don’t deserve all this…but you are an ocean of cause less mercy who is showering your blessing on us all the time.

I humbly request you to always hold my hand not leave my hands in all the upcoming births and always guide me in this difficult and challenging path of Krishna Consciousness as the Journey has started only now and A long way to go birth after Births…

My parents asked me to listen to them, my teachers asked me to listen to them, my in-laws and my husband asked me to listen to them,

But you asked me to listen to Krishna and said everything here belongs to Krishna.
This has changed me into a person who is learning to see Krishna in each everything around me.The moment I became Krishna conscious my heart is filled with love for Krishna and for you.

Your lectures taught me the depth of life and the purpose and philosophy in it….
You do that with so much of simplicity which gives me goosebumps each time I listen to you…..
I always need your blessings to be under you shadow so that I can walk my journey of my life as per your teachings…
Bless me to read as many books of yours as I can,chat as many times as I can,listen to your lectures and always be associated with your devotees.

Our Dear Srila Prabhupada,

You are the spiritual master of the whole world, you brought us near to Lord Chaitnya’s mercy and realized us our true identity. To fulfill the order of your spiritual master you took lot of inconveniences and at the age of 70 you went to western country just to preach the message of Lord Chaitanya. You have saved the life of millions of people and taught us how to live. We were living like cats and dogs and unaware about our predicament, but you just requested us to chant the holy names of the lord.

Your faith towards your spiritual master and Hare Krishna mahamatra simply changed our lives.

Your exemplary behavior:
You inspire us by your achar. I have read in books that how you were tolerated the behavior of hippies, they were smoking on your face and stealing your things, but you always showed compassion to them. Whenever you are physically sick you didn’t compromise on spreading sankirtan movement and you feel good whenever devotees inform you about book distribution scores. All night you write books without taking care of your physical body health.

Life dedicated to instructions of Spiritual master:
Your spiritual master told to spread this movement in western country and printing of books. You have made these instructions as your life and soul and flooded the whole world with Krishna Consciousness. In your lectures you always emphasized where is book? Where is book? And requested everyone to distribute books. I personally see that so many people live have changed just by reading your books.

Thank you, Srila Prabhupäda, for rescuing me. Every day I feel your loving presence. Thank you for giving me a transcendental engagement in devotional service, for teaching me how to live and how to die.

Your insignificant servant,

Offering by Premasundara Madhava Das

I am an insignificant unqualified soul, but proud to be a part of your mission. Nothing of this material world can repay you other than glorifying you and preaching your works. Kindly accept this expression from my heart, Srila Prabhupad.

You showed that Purity is force – You have preached, inspired and changed the lives of so many westeners with a sound and convincing philosophy and established many temples all over the world in a very short duration. This shows your purity and how dear you are to Krsna.

“Patita pavana”- You are merciful to dedicate your life writing books just to make the fallen souls realize the purpose of life. In fact, you had mercifully reduced the regulations to a bare minimum for practicing bhakthi just to elevate fallen souls like me.

You are strong and convincing , whenever you deliver lectures Srila Prabhupad ! – I am attracted the way how you counteract the mayavadis just by simple examples from our daily life. Hearing your lecture again and again is never the same or boring for we learn new points everytime . Your lectures have so much to assimilate. ‘Life comes from life’ – exemplary examples you have given.

You are the JagatGuru – Compiling several volumes of Vedic scriptures in modern English and present the essence alone to fallen souls like us in a simple way shows that your are an incarnation Of Vysadev in Kali Yuga. Knowing me to be unqualified, and ever needing your mercy I beg you to please use me as an instrument in your mission.

You are so potent that just by hearing your pastimes my consciousness gets purified and my faith in Krsna increases.You were totally dependent on Krsna in every moment of your life and I pray for your mercy so that I increase my dependence on Krsna for everything.

You had mentioned that you are living in your books. Along with your books, your presence is felt from your lecture recordings as well. The greatest asset that you have left aside, apart from books are your disciples. How much you would have inspired them which made them give up everything and just continue your mission as their life. Kindly bless me so that I can atleast get a glimpse of that mood.

Always dependent upon you and your disciples’ mercy and blessings to be in association with devotees throughout.

I offer my humble obeisances unto His Divine Grace Prabhupada A.C.
Bhaktivedanta Swami, who is very dear to Lord Krishna.

I heartily thank you Srila Prabhupada, because of you we are able to render service to lord Sri Krishna and Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and all other acharyas in our small different ways.

Because of your mercy Srila prabhupada we got the chance to understand the true meaning of our scriptures Bhagavad Gita and various other scriptures you have written. Because of your mercy we are able chant Krishna’s name which is Krishna Himself.

You made clear what actually should be the goal of a person in this materialistic world that is to go back home back to Godhead. You made us realize the actual value of devotees and Guru and Gauranga and how their mercy plays a vital role in advancing in Krishna consciousness and without which we can’t progress in our spritiual path.

You told us the importance of all Dhama’s. You made Krishna consciousness so easy but still i a fallen soul is not taking it seriously. Please Prabhupada, i beg at your lotus feet, please shower your mercy on me so that i follow your and Guru’s instructions seriously and make an endeavor to serve Krishna, you and Guru maharaj in best possible ways i can.
Please always keep me in association of devotees and that i may always continue to serve my Guru and Krishna sincerely birth after birth.

Hare Krishna,

Dear Prabhupad, please accept my humble obeisance unto your lotus feet.

I am a very menial and insignificant soldier in your huge army of learned, devoted and enthusiastic soldiers.

I am awestruck every time I read or hear about your journey to west. It is difficult to believe that an old age person was so fearless and so confident on the mercy of God that he went to an unknown country for the first time without any proper arrangements of survival.

Moreover, all these efforts were put just to fulfill the wish of his Spiritual Master. 

In this era of kaliyuga when many bogus gurus are cheating the innocent people’s emotions for selfish reasons, you stand out to be like a savior for the mankind. You are not only giving them highest knowledge, which is the only and only way for living entities to go back to the spiritual world but you are also transforming their lives in many ways and making them a good human being in this material world. 

I was struggling in the battle of life when suddenly your soldiers came as a savior and made me realize the value of this life. You added lot of value to my life, which I thought to be of no use until your books made me realize how fortunate I am to get this human form of life.

I have definitely done some good karma in my previous life that I got connected to you and your ISKCON family. I can't thank you enough for what you have given to me.
