Offering by Bandhu Madhava das

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

All glories to your divine grace. Please accept my humble obeisances.

I feel fortunate for having got a opportunity to write this offering on your 125th appearance day. I don’t know from where should I begin to thank you. You are the reason for everything auspicious in my life from all angles of vision.

My life in this living did not start when I was born, but when your books and teachings came in. That was my real birth.

My learning did not begin in school or college, but from when I started hear your transcendental teachings. That was my real education.

I am able coin words and speak few sentences today is only after learning your books.

I was a dumb fool. You made my life. Everything that others see in me today, is but a mercy that you have given, though I am not worthy of it. I am able repeat something from scriptures today, is only because of your mercy. I am able think something to be right and wrong today, is only because of your teachings. I am able to do something today is only because of you. I am writing this offering also, only because of your mercy.

I really don’t know where should I begin to thank you. Everything in my life, is what you have given me.

I simply wish to spend my time ETERNALLY remembering and thanking you.

You have given so much transcendental instructions but I am struggling to put a lot of your teachings in my personal life. I am still in deep dark ignorance and I need to hold on to the rope you have thrown and climb up leaving behind all my useless habits. I am willing to change for your pleasure. I will continue to fight with my internal enemies. I am willing to improve. Your mercy is there to make my effort complete. I just need to step up to grab it.

Thank you Srila Prabhupada for making my life. I will try my best to follow your teachings. Today I am far away but hopefully sooner, I will also be given the entrance into your sincere followers list. I am willing to work for that change.

Writing this offering on behalf of your servants Sumati Jahnava Devi dasi and Bhakta Baladeva.

Your servant,
Bandhu Madhava das

Offering by Hariksetra das

Dear Srila Prabhupada

Please accept my respectful obeisance

All glories to you.

Thank you Srila Prabhupada for all that you have given me. I can never repay the debt. The success of my life is to constantly be engaged in your service.

Srila Prabhupada, you have already accepted me and all the people of this world, even those who are yet to come into this world for next ten thousand years as your disciples. When asked how many disciples you have, your response was “Unlimited! some know, some don’t know!!!” This is your unlimited mercy Srila Prabhupada.

Deeming to your position as the acarya, who has been personally sent by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu to save the fallen souls of kali yuga, it is the duty of every ISKCON leader to facilitate development of personal relation with you, Srila Prabhupada. In those lines, one of the meditations I had in the past few months is that Srila Prabhupada, you are personally present, and you guide devotees personally. In difficulties I approach you and pray to you and you surely respond. Whenever I am tormented by a particular anarta, I have approached you and Gurudeva, you mercifully pick me up and save me from that situation and give me better focus on devotional service. I developed the habit of pronouncing your pranam mantra clearly and legibly before every round of Hare Krishna mantra, praying for focus and attention on this most important service given to me. This has made a lot of difference in my chanting and in my very life. These experiences have intensified my faith that you are personally present, and you help me personally. Now I can share this confidently.

Thankyou Srila Prabhupada for giving your dear disciple as my spiritual master, who is always absorbed in thoughts of executing your instructions. There are so many wonderful Vaishnavas in the past and present, but you and your dear servants have saved me, and I am indebted. My only desire is to have nothing else in my life other than serving you by executing the instructions of my dear spiritual master.

It is a glorious moment to celebrate this 125th Vyasapuja of yours Srila Prabhupada. Now we are trying to distribute a card containing your glories to almost 3500 people. We will also plan many other things to create awareness about you, who have come to save these people of kali yuga. We also wish to offer you a land in this area and build a glorious temple.

Thank you Srila Prabhupada for all that you have given me. Praying for your mercy.

Your servant

Offering by Acyuta Arjunasakha Das

nama om vishnu-padaya krishna-preshthaya bhu-tale
srimate bhaktivedanta-svamin iti namine
namaste saraswate deve gaura-vani-pracarine
nirvishesha-shunyavadi-pashchatya-desha-tarine
My dear eternal spiritual grandfather His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada,
Please accept my respectful obeisances unto your lotus feet on the auspicious occasion of your Vyasa-puja celebration. All glories to your Sankirtan lotus feet!

My dear Srila Prabhupada,
The Srimad Bhagavatam 1.18.23 says “O ṛṣis, who are as powerfully pure as the sun, I shall try to describe to you the transcendental pastimes of Viṣṇu as far as my knowledge is concerned. As the birds fly in the sky as far as their capacity allows, so do the learned devotees describe the Lord as far as their realization allows.” Since you are the unalloyed representative and confidential associate of Krishna, the above verse applies to you also (“sākṣād-dharitvena samasta-śāstrair”), and therefore I am simply dumbfounded in my ignorant and insignificant attempt to glorify you, but I will try as far as my capacity allows.

My dear most merciful grandfather,
I am simply introspecting the extraordinary abominable condition I was in, before meeting you, in the form of your teachings and vaani. Thank you for introducing me to the purifying realm of Krishna Consciousness. Thank you for being such hope and inspiration in my life which uplifts me and saves me again and again. “We think that we have met Your Goodness by the will of providence, just so that we may accept you as captain of the ship for those who desire to cross the difficult ocean of Kali, which deteriorates all the good qualities of a human being.” (SB 1.2.22). Please instruct me so that I may always accept and follow your teaching wholeheartedly without any reservations.

My dear preeminent Shiksha guru,
Thank you for your tireless zeal to touch and deliver one and all. Thank you for spreading the Hare Krishna maha-mantra all over the planet. You created the fortune of the residents of this planet by travelling the world 14 times in 12 years distributing the Hare Krishna maha-mantra to one and all. You are your Krishna Conscious movement has saved humanity from degrading into utter darkness.
You have set such an exemplary example of the spirit of preaching. By your extraordinary compassion and your divine conduct, you have spoken loud and clear that the central purpose of Lord Chaitanya’s movement is to preach and simultaneously expand the as unlimitedly.
In your letter to Letter to Jayatirtha, 5 May 1974, you highlight and reflect the preaching desire/mission of Lord Chaitanya “Regarding your invitation that I attend the Rathayatra festival in San Francisco, on July 7th, it is possible that I may attend depending on when I finish my European tour. I am due to arrive in Rome on May 23, then after a week Geneva, then Paris and possibly Stockholm, Germany and England. If there is time I can fly directly from Europe to Los Angeles and go to the festival, then as you suggest, go to Australia Rathayatra via Hawaii. This is known as jet-age parivrajakacarya.” Your innermost desire is to spread Krsna consciousness everywhere at once. Please empower me to absorb a drop of that mood so that I play an insignificant role in your plan to expand the Krishna Consciousness movement.

My dear saviour,
Your unfathomably deep and infinitely unique personality has various facets.
Plain-living pioneer, World sankirtana party leader, Vaishnavi empowerer, Prasadam master, Literary fountain, Deity installer and much more. Please bless me so that I can become more faithful to you by being able to connect with one or more of your merciful aspects. The goal of my life is to simply deepen my connection and bond with you. That will give me an enlivening experience of your association. I fully understand that this would be possible only in the well-rounded, cooperative company of your serious & sincere followers. Only then will your full mercy manifest in my life. I beg you to accept me and empower me with your unfailing servitorship.

My dear Founder-Acharya,
The first & foremost way I can connect with you is by becoming a keen student of your spoken and written words. Regular and attentive hearing from my founder acharya —especially in the company of like-minded devotees, will ground me in my foundational relationship which will sustain and enrich me and also others. You made this point very clear in August 1968, during the Q&A after SB class, when a new initiate expressed that when you weren’t there in person, she felt far away from you. You replied: “Oh, that you should not think…There are two conceptions: the physical conception and the vibration conception. So physical conception is temporary. The vibration conception is eternal. Just like we are enjoying or we are relishing the vibration of Krishna’s teachings. So by vibration, He is present. As soon as we chant Hare Krishna or chant Bhagavad-gita or Bhagavata, so He is present immediately by His vibration. So we should give more stress on the sound vibration, either of Krishna or the spiritual master. Then we’ll feel happy and no separation.” (Srimad-Bhagavatam lecture, 7.9.12, Montreal, 18 August 1968). Please enable me to access you, uninterruptedly via your sound vibration.

Srila Prabhupada,
The success of my life is to find my mission in your mission. While some people focus on cultivating one’s confidential relationship with Krsna, you always emphasized that helping the spiritual master serve the Lord’s mission is the best way to become intimate with and dear to Him. In one of your purports you have mercifully revealed “When one becomes serious to follow the mission of the spiritual master, his resolution is tantamount to seeing the Supreme Personality of Godhead…In conclusion, if a disciple is very serious to execute the mission of the spiritual master, he immediately associates with the Supreme Personality of Godhead…This is the only secret of success in seeing the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Instead of being eager to see the Lord in some bush of Vrindavana while at the same time engaging in sense gratification, if one instead sticks to the principle of following the words of the spiritual master, he will see the Supreme Lord without difficulty.” (SB 4.28.51 purport).
Reflecting on how my Shiksa and Diksha gurus are enriching and deepening my foundational relationship with you by practically helping me contribute to your mission, is my saving grace. They are the most important people in our life.

My dear Srila Prabhupada,
The more I immerse myself in your life, teachings, mood & mission, the more I will understand how to be faithful & fresh as I re-present you, present you all over again, to the ever-changing times, places, and people.
You want me to carry your legacy and become a regular guru, not imitate or replace you, but to follow in your footsteps: “So we should follow this instruction of Caitanya Mahaprabhu, yare dekha, tare kaha krishna-upadesha. So you, every one of you, can become a guru. You may say that ‘I am not interested to become a guru,’ but Caitanya Mahaprabhu says that if you are not interested, that is not very good. You should be interested. You must be a guru. That is the success of your life.” (Room Conversation, Teheran, 13 Mar 1975).
Please empower me to imbibe and impart your legacy.

Please empower me so that your instructions become my only sadhana, my only sadhya and my only livelihood. I wish to never give up these instructions either in the stage of practice or in the stage of perfection. I beg that your instructions remain my only desire and my only responsibility. By your mercy anything is possible, I hanker to get a drop of it. I aspire to become a faithful servant of your servants.

Yours eternally,
Acyuta Arjunasakha Das JPS,

Offering by Amal Bhaduri

Revered Srila Prabhupada,

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

Srila Prabhupada, I am indeed fortunate to have been given the privilege and a chance to offer my respectful obedience’s unto your lotus feet through the Vyas Puja offering today. I feel extremely small and fallen to inform you that my youth and long active service period of this precious human life, meant for only Bhakti, as also despite being born in the God Conscious family, was spent totally in a different regimented environment.

I can only call it divine mercy of you, Jagat Guru Prabhupada and Lord Gaurango that better late than never happened, I could take shelter of my mentor’s lotus feet and was able to migrate with ease into the most revered, time tested, legally approved, religious service for mankind of Krsna consciousness. Me transforming into this regimented life, was just smooth sailing.

Now having fully adapted to the new lifestyle, understanding the unimaginable sacrifices done by you, His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada, to bring up this esteemed movement/ organisation as it is today, prospering leaps and bound are most remarkable. Having dedicated fully to the ethos and principles of the much sort of position in this Hare Krishna movement, I promise you, will not only carry on vigorously own Sadhana but bring up the new soldiers in our arsenal through the Bhakti Vriksha, Preaching and developing their mental state, to fully understand the Krsna Conscious movement, follow it in letter and spirit, of ‘Guru Haya, preach’, science of Krsna to one and all….This rock solid foundation of our Krsna Consciousness will move at fastest speed in times ahead. How true the preaching of the Gurus, you endeavour 20% and Lord will contribute 80%. A plan for sacrificing worth a Penny, Lord ushers Dollars. Please give me the strength to follow your divine instructions with faith and conviction, bless me that I can properly follow your footsteps, mould my life according to the examples you so mercifully set, and I am also sanguine that through your Books, Preaching’s, adhering to the principles laid down, will be able to strengthen and enhance the Movement to new standards in our humble way….

Your Humble Servant,
Amal Bhaduri.

Hare Krishna, Dandavat Pranam,

Please accept my humble obeisance’s

You are an evergreen inspiration for me. The amount of hardships you had to face spreading Krishna Consciousness, what I am doing is very very insignificant.

Associating with ISKCON and devotees has brought in a sense of purpose in my life. You made life simpler for fallen soul like me with exceptional books, written with so much compassion and practicality.

With you as preeminent Siksa Guru, I have complete faith and belief that you will not let me fall down.
You are ocean of mercy, the friend of the poor, master of the devotees.

Offering by Neelambari Radha dasi

Hare Krishna dear Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obeisance at your divine lotus feet.

All glories to you dear Srila Prabhupada.

Yesterday was Janmashtami, till couple of years back, Janmashtami was only a festival for us like many other festivals. But you’ve introduced the importance of this day and Lord Krishna in our life so your appearance on next day of Janmashtami is quite relevant for all of us.

I’ve accepted Krishna consciousness only because of your teachings. Not sure whether i’m advancing or not but i’m realizing day by day what you’ve done for human society. Also I’m realizing how much you are empowered to perform everything so perfectly. Your instructions and teachings are so practical and relevant in every situation.

On this auspicious day of your Vyasa-puja, please bless me and all members of ISKCON that we remain engaged in your services always.
Your teachings, your organization, your books and your followers are the most valuable assets of our life. I sincerely pray that more and more people in this world realize and accept these valuable assets in their lives.

Your eternal and grateful servant

Offering by Sudha

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obeisance at Your Lotus Feet.

This is my 3rd Vyasapuja Offering to you, Prabhupada. And for the first time, I am at a loss for words. I don’t know if it’s because I have too much to say or too little, being the insignificant baddhajeevi that I am.

The past year has been a partly blissful and partly painful experience for me. The time has come to stir the pot and let the contaminating muck that resides within my heart, in the form of false ego, pride, enviousness, anger and many other subtle anarthas, rise to the top. That is the only way to clean the pot. This has been particularly painful and disturbing to me. So, it is obvious that I have a long way to go and have not made much progress the last year. Deweeding the garden is a very painful job and requires an expert gardener, who can identify the weeds from the bhakti lata and I am hoping to approach one such expert gardener, many of whom you have gloriously provided us with, Prabhupada.

With each passing year, my realisation of the importance of the legacy that you have left behind for us, grows. Without your grace and merciful spirit, the organization of ISKCON would not have come into being, and we would not be where we are now, under the guidance of shiksha gurus, who selflessly carry on nurturing the faith of sadhakas like me.

During Janmashtami celebrations yesterday, as we were blissfully watching the maha abhishekam and subsequent pushpa abhishekam of the deities after the bath, one of the devotees mentioned in the chat that she wishes the pushpa abhishekam goes on eternally, so that her eyes could experience continuous bliss and satisfaction. This made me realise that one of the aspects that attracted me most to ISKCON was the opulence of offerings to the Lord, the most opulent offering being flowers. The care and attention to detail that goes into each and every event, is the legacy of the love of Godhead that you left behind for us.

I am eternally grateful to you, dear Srila Prabhupada for the many different ways in which you have touched people's lives, the most important being shining the torch of knowledge, so that the darkness of ignorance is dispelled from our lives.

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

“I offer my respectful obeisances unto my spiritual master, who has opened my eyes, which were blinded by the darkness of ignorance, with the torchlight of knowledge”.

There are many areas that need improvement in my sadhana bhakti and your directions in the form of your vani, has helped identify them, dear Prabhupada. I hope to improve on them and give you a better progress report in my Vyasa puja offering next year. I am eternally grateful to you, dear Prabhupada for giving my life purpose and making me realise that I am NOTHING if Krishna is taken away from me.

Your eternal “hoping to be truly humble” servant,
Sudha

Offering by Dilip Kumar

My Dear Prabhupad,
Please accept my prostrated and humble obeisances.

On this auspicious day of your 125th anniversary of your appearance, I am fortunate to express my heartfelt gratitude to you. Today the most fallen, sinful, fool like me is enjoying the fruits of your sacrifice in the form of luxurious ISKCON temples, tasting the most delicious Prasadam, getting access to transcendental books, and most importantly association of your pure devotees. Your devotees are like expert surgeons who are treating my heart disease of material enjoyment. And much more. I can never repay for your magnanimous compassion on me.

My only deepest desire is to serve your mission under your pure devotees. I take this opportunity to pray to their Lordship Sri Krishna and Radharani to give me the intelligence to understand the importance of a pure devotees. Generally it is easy to accept Krishna as supreme person but to except a guru who also looks like an ordinary person is not easy for a condition soul like me. But nevertheless I am very hopeful by the easiest process derived and designed by you.

This is just and immature expression of my thoughts. I have a very long way to go and experience the true importance of you in my life. I am half baked please do not leave me. Please engage me in your mission and please lead me to your pure follower so that I can be under his shelter. Your mercy is my only hope. Because of hearing regularly from your devotees I am able to follow the 4 regularise principles. I tried by my strength to do this for past many year but failed miserably. But this year was magic just by hear Bhagawatam class every morning from IBC I am able to give up bad habits. This has increased my faith in the process. This is your cause less mercy. I have decided to chant 16 rounds attentively without offence and read your books everyday very thoroughly. I am also thinking of getting initiated. You have given a new hope. You have protected me and still protecting.

Thanking you,
Yours aspiring servant of the servant of the servant

Offering by Nayana

Dear respected Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obesiances at your lotus feet,

I am eternally grateful to you for giving us organization like ISKCON which has become my true family. You have shown us the real engagement of this human life otherwise we had wasted our life in mundane affairs. I have been ignorant through out my life and your have shown us the absolute path irrespective of our eligibility. Srila Prabhupada I am a very poor reader but trying to read your books in devotee association and can’t express my gratitude towards you for generating our faith in scriptures by presenting them in most authentic and practical way without any compromising. Your books and lectures makes me realize that how merciful you are to all living entities of this world and how much pain you have taken for their real welfare.

I am trying to devote my time on Krishna conciousness under the able guidance of senior devotees, I beg for your mercy so that I can follow some of your teachings and spread your words to others. Please help me to progress in my sadhana and services and protect me from Anarthas.

I bow down again and again to express my gratitude for giving me and my family Krishna conciousness path.

Nama Om Vishnupadaya Krishna prashtaya bhutale

Namaste Saraswate Deve Gauravani pracharine
Nirvishesha Shunyavadi Paschatya desha tarine

Dear Prabhupada, Everytime I recite your pranam mantras I remember what a big difference u have made to my life and to the lives of the people around me. The biggest gift u have given me is bringing Shiksha gurus into our lives through Iskcon and making me realise the true purpose of my life . I know it is for me to repay this debt of yours by serving your disciples and encouraging others on this path of Krishna consciousness.

However preaching is not easy, doesn’t come naturally to me, but I hope with your mercy I can serve u and this wonderful organisation u have created ISKCON in some humble way.

Please give me your blessings so I may practise my Krishna consciousness nicely, do my chanting, follow the regulative principles , read your books regularly, always serve and remain in the association of devotees and develop sincere love for the Lord in my heart.

I have a beautiful picture of you Srila prabhupada in my home and everytime I pay obeisances to u I feel happy and fortunate that somehow your mercy touched me and my family through your disciples and grand disciples. Where once upon a time our house was adorned with useless material accessories today my home feels like a temple with the Lordships and you gracing our home .

I would like to end my offering to u with this verse Yadi prabhupada na hoito tobe ke hoito ye Jeevan bahita kishe.

Thank u Prabhupada for coming to this material world and saving all of us unfortunate fallen souls !!! Indeed u are Krishnas most wonderful gift to us.

Offering by Tandrima

My Dearest Srila Prabhupada,
Happy 125th Anniversary to Srila Prabhupad !

With all due respect, I would like to express my heartiest gratitude to you. Please accept my humble obeisance at Your Lotus Feet. It is my great fortune that I have been able to associate with devotees of Lord Sri Krishna. This has been possible only by your grace. You have given me a completely new perspective to life and it’s so blissful. It’s inexplicable to quantify the degree of your blessings that you have showered on me. Despite being in the midst of unfavourable circumstances every other day under the clutches of Maya, you have been bestowing your grace to keep me connected with the wonderful devotees from ISKCON, Whitefield via Krishna katha, BG and SB reading classes and various services. I am also highly indebted to your lectures as I have drawn the most meaningful derivations from these. Life would not be the same without your grace.

Like a fallen soul, I find it very difficult at times to execute the services assigned to me by our temple Pr jis ,but you have been holding my hand tight and dragging me through this, not giving up on me. I am so very blessed to have been receiving your causeless mercy. It’s a long journey and without your blessings, I will be under the realm of pseudo-joy in the clutches of Maya. Please do not leave me. I shall cling on to you, come hell or high water. Please be by my side and bless me. Without your blessings I will not be able to progress even a bit in my spiritual path. You have brought the desired discipline in my life and life is so beautiful now. Please help me in surrendering to Krishna. I am still struggling to make this journey as a priority. Please help me. Without you, I would be left alone under the tyranny of Maya.

Please accept my humble obeisance and bless me so that I can become a servant of your servant of your servant of your servant.

Thank you for giving me the beautiful gift of Krishna Consciousness, I’m forever grateful.
Krishna is always by my side and always surprises with his subtle gestures. It is so wonderful.

Like Jayapataka Swami Maharaj said in the song he wrote ‘yadi prabhupada na haita tabe ki haita e jivana bahita kise?’ If Srila Prabhupada had not come, what would have happened? How could we have passed our lives?

I read your biography, you truly took so much trouble and never gave up to spread the Krishna consciousness movement.

I am grateful to you (Prabhupada) for helping or blessing me on the path of devotion (Krishna Prem). I don’t even having eligibility to glorify you but for my benefit I am trying to glorify you. Please forgive my all offense. From each and every step, Your small small steps are also a big lesson for me. Even your first journey to the USA also gives us a lesson of faith in Guru and Krishna. Your lectures and books and empowered Vaishnava are the only hope in this world.

Srila Prabhupada please give me mercy to fallen souls like me and always engage me in the service of Srila Gurudev and Krishna.

Hare Krishna dear Srila Prabhupada! Please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to you !

Prabhupada is like a grandfather I always feel who is watching on me silently , there have been times I have faltered in my goal , not concentrating on my japa or not doing my services , which always disturbs me immensely . To my surprise , I feel as if Guru Maharaj Srila Prabhupada is always listening to my heart , and then I would listen to some Prabhupada lecture randomly which would have answers to my questions or the doubts I have in my mind. I always get surprised by how my questions get answered .

As Jayapataka swami Maharaj says – Yadi Prabhupada na hoi toh , tabhe kei hoyite!

I totally live by what is said above ! After having surrendered myself to Srila Prabhupada, I know there is no looking back . Even if I falter somewhere , I know Srila Prabhupada will rescue me.

Please accept my respectful obeisance

All glories to you.

nama oṁ viṣṇu-pādāya kṛṣṇa-preṣṭhāya bhū-tale

namas te sārasvate deve gaura-vāṇī-pracāriṇe

I don’t have any qualifications Srila Prabhupada but I am very fortunate to have this opportunity to offer my heartfelt thanks to you on your 125th appearance day for showing us the path of Krishna Consciousness.

It has been about 4 years now since I came in touch with Acyuta Prabhuji and then came to know you and ISKCON and met my other Shiksha Gurus and I still have a very long way to go. By hearing and reading your books Srila Prabhupada, I’m trying to understand more deeply what it means to be Krishna conscious and I know you and only you can help me.

Thank you very much for writing so many books which are like a single ray of hope for us Kaliyuga people who do not know anything, we all are eternally grateful to you.

From the past 2 years because of covid we are not able to get much physical devotee association. It’s good that we are having so many online sessions, we are able to hear about Krishna more than earlier and we are able to touch so many souls now but I miss physical association with devotees. I felt this more deeply yesterday when by mercy of my shiksha gurus and Gauranga I was able to attend Janmashtami, just for a little bit. Please guide me during these tough times dear Prabhupad, only your mercy can help me.

I beg unto you for your causeless mercy so I can chant properly and do devotional service without any offenses. Please bless me that I be more and more Kṛṣṇa conscious by every passing second and surrender to Lord Krishna with all my heart and soul.

Please always keep me under your shelter and guide me to become a faithful devotee of Krishna and a better servant of your servants 🙏.

Thank you so much Srila Prabhupada,
Your eternal servant,
Aditi

Namo Om Vishnu Padaya Krishna Presthaya Bhutale Srimate Bhaktivedanta Swamin Iti namine
Namaste Sarasvate Deve Gauravani Pracharine Nirvisesha Sunyavadi Paschatya Desa tarine

Dear Srila Prabhupad,

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

Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and in his parampara Srila Bhaktivinod thakur both have predicted that a senapathi bhakt will appear who will preach the names & glories of the supreme lord throughout the world. After receiving instructions from Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvathi Thakur to preach the Krishna consciousness to the western world, Srila Prabhupad You have taken this great responsibility and proved the prophecy as conveyed by Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.

You knew it very well that the whole world is watching and following the west and if these people could be elevated then the whole world will follow them. Your prediction has come true. It is so amazing to see so many Hare Krishna devotees throughout the world. Your compassion to fallen souls is unparalleled. With practically no money, no followers you started this movement of Krishna Consciousness. The Asset you had however was faith in the words of your Guru maharaj . This faith and your sincere effort has lead to transformation of so many lives throughout the world. Earlier only India was the center of all this transcendental knowledge but with your divine movement the whole world is rejoicing . You have left your precious vani via several lectures, books and so on which will help generations to come. You have shown that Chanting of holy name is not mundane but it is coming straight from the Goloka and those whoever chants the Holy name :

“ Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare ; Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare” will be freed from the entanglement of birth & death.

You have practically shown the importance of devotees association, following Vani of sri Guru, Vaishnava etiquettes. Your books are so impactful and knowledgeable. While people in general are contemplating on how to enjoy the life with sense gratification you have brought in concept of body & soul and clearly outlined this concept in the Bhagavad gita. It opens a thought process to those who hear and read your books to contemplate on these wonderful aspect and signifies the urgency to chant the holy names of the lord. There is always something new to learn from your books. You have also given us wonderful Guru parampara who guide us at all times. You have built a house where all of us including the future generations can come, learn & practice Krishna consciousness . We are eternally grateful to you Srila prabhupad. Kindly bless me that I always follow this path laid by you very sincerely and preach this at my limited ability and do not get deluded by other worldly attractions.

Your Spiritual Grand daughter,
Sirisa Haripriya Devi Dasi

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

Hare Krishna
I offer my most respectful obeisances at your lotus feet.

All all all glories to Jagat Guru Srila Prabhupada

Dear prabhupada,
Jodi prabhupada na hoito
Tobe ki hoeto
Ay jiban bahita kishe

My Gurumaharaj’s words are so true. Without you, i would have been lost in my wasteful life. I would have kept suffering under the beatings of Maya. I would never know about the most merciful Gauranga & Nityananda. I would have never known the importance and power of the Hare Krishna Mahamantra. Infact, i would never have known the very purpose of my this human life. If it wasn’t for you, I would have continued to struggle in the cycle of birth, death, old-age & disease. Now having come in the association of your pure servants, who are most wonderful devotees, because of your causeless mercy, i am realising what an ocean of bliss, mercy, joy this krishna consciousness is. You have taken unthinkable amount of pain just to deliver fallen souls like myself from this never ending ocean of worldly sufferings. Dearest Prabhupada without your mercy, i would have never got the mercy of my Gurumaharaj and without Gurudeva I would have not received the mercy of my Siksha gurus.

Without whom i am blind, i am directionless. Dear Prabhupada please shower your mercy & blessings upon me so that i can become a pure, strong and qualified soldier of your Krishna conscious army and serve my Gurumaharaj very nicely who is serving you in Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s mission so wonderfully. I want to become a qualified servant of my Gurumaharaj for your pleasure, oh Prabhupada and for the pleasure of Guru & Gauranga. You are my spiritual grandfather, and your love is boundless, you are so merciful and loving that even the most fallen soul like me can feel the mercy immediately in this krishna consciousness. You are always so caring towards us, who are your children. I am so hopeless and fallen that i do not even know how to properly express my gratitude. Please eternally keep me protected under your shelter Prabhupada. I love you a lot but i want to love you unconditionally and serve you unconditionally. Please accept my surrender at your lotus feet.

Your most insignificant servant,

All glories to your divine grace all glories to your lotus feet

Please Accept my respectful obeisance’s to your lotus feet

Srila Prabhupda we were reading your lilamrta every day and we can feel your pain and unimaginable sacrifices to spread lord chaitanya message to all over the world. Where ever your divine grace lotus feet touched it became a temple.

Groundbreaking was the First initiation ceremony in the USA arranging everything from fire sacrifice initiation cooking feast washing vessels at the end washing prasadam plates.

Not only that you preached staying at Bowery no facility and the crowd was completely influenced by the material energy. In your room lights were always on writing Srimad Bhagavatham commentary and singing Hari Hari bifale at late night remembering spiritual master instruction.

You mercifully arranged the first marriage ceremony for Janaki mataji & Mukunda prabhu guiding them in jewelry, dress, colour of the dress & fire sacrifice you took wonderful care. You are spiritual father for every fallen soul in your words “ever well wisher”.

First public sankirtan you performed at Washington square park.

From lilamrta

“A year ago, in Butler, the Agarwals had been sure that Prabhupäda had not come to America for followers. “He didn't want to make any waves," Sally had thought. But now he was making waves, walking through the New York City streets, headed for the first public chanting in America, followed by his first disciples.”
“With Prabhupäda leading they set out on that fair Sunday morning, walking the city blocks from Second Avenue to Washington Square in the heart of Greenwich Village. And the way Srila Prabhupada looked—just by walking he created a sensation.”
Your divine grace America was flooded with rock roll music and youths were exploited with senses, no hope for this planet but now you have mercifully descended as savior.
Your walk and first sankirtan at Washington park broke the silence of America not only that broke the silence of the universe. Your plantation of Gaura bhakti seed grown beyond this universe.

Without your unconditioned love on jive doya how can a person like me most insignificant soul know Krishna is supreme personality of God Head. Rotten soul loitering in this dangerous material world how can I able to chant hare Krishna maha mantra.

You said even dog can take a part of chanting hare Krishna maha mantra that was a big hope for me. Though I don’t have any qualification in bhakti you gave me your wonderful loving son HH Jayapataka Swami as my spiritual master. Also, you blessed us with many wonderful devotee’s lovable association. I have no intelligence I am the lowest among the fool to understand your philosophy and your transcendental writing. Bless me so that I can develop deep love and affection on your books, I take a owe that I will read your book. Seeking your blessing to understand your book and distribute your divine knowledge. Having very thick conditioning in my heart with your blessing soon I will be able to come out and serve you and your followers dear Srila Prabhupada.

Please forgive my offenses and I thank you from my bottom of heart for saving us from this most dangerous material world. All glories to your dust of lotus feet Serial Prabhupada.

Dear Srila Prabhupad,
Please accept my respectful and humble obeisances at Your Divine lotus feet on the occasion of Your 125th Vyasa puja. It is a fortune to be present at this auspicious time in the history of humanity on this planet. Your Divine Grace appeared on this planet to save suffering humanity. You have shared the most confidential spiritual knowledge to humanity to save us and give the most precious opportunity to be a part of Your mission, Lord Chaitanya’s Sankirtan Movement.

You endured many hardships and sacrificed Your life to fulfill the instructions of Your exalted Spiritual Master. You were never bogged down by the uncountable hurdles on your path and despite them, you moved with utmost faith and courage. It was Your unflinching faith in the Holyname and the unalloyed love and surrender to Your Spiritual Master – HDG Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Goswami Maharaj. I have read that Lord Rama had the support of Hanuman, Lord Chaitanya had the support of Lord Nityananda but Your Divine Grace, You had no support at all yet You were a one-man-army in Yourself and single handedly created a spiritual revolution on this planet.

You have given that which every soul is crying for but struggling to understand, due to contamination, what that craving is – the lost relationship with the very source and core of our existence – the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Your Dear Lord, Krishna.

You simplified the most confidential knowledge such that even the most unintelligent (spiritually) may understand and by Your mercy millions like me, miserable souls have got access and opportunity to understand purpose and direction for life. You not just wrote the books of knowledge, you personally carried reams of paper and got it printed, then bound them and personally distributed them. I have never heard of any other saint who has been so selfless, courageous, intelligent, a profound visionary and who taught the language of genuine love. Your Lilamrta is the most powerful book that I have read in my life.

You not just gave knowledge but most importantly You created a complete ecosystem in the form of the temples, deity worship, the system of mentoring, community programs and support – for people to practice this Krishna Consciousness and achieve success.

To create a process is probably the most difficult but You gave a practice-able process according to the limitations of this Kaliyuga but without any compromise in the principles. It’s a proof of Your superior vision, intelligence and mission of Your appearance.

You also gave precious jewelstones in Your beloved disciples who are brightening our lives through exemplary character, dealings, firm determination and unending love for you, who are working day-night as Your warriors to bring as many souls closer to You and Your teachings – the gateway to Godhead. We see You in them. I have learnt the meaning of love from Your life and Your beloved disciples. I personally am very grateful to You for giving the benediction of Srila Gurudev in my life without whom my life was a dark endless tunnel. Thank You immensely Srila Prabhupad.

I pray to You to forgive my offences and give me opportunity to serve You in Your mission as a servant of my Gurudev. I beg You to make me an instrument to spread Your teachings all over. Your glories are to be known by everyone especially the children. Please bestow Your blessings to spread Your glories and teachings.

I also pray to You to give Your blessings and shelter at Your lotus feet to my son and surrender to Your lotus feet to my husband to progress on this path of Bhakti.

I pray to You to protect me eternally in Your shelter and at Gurudev’s lotus feet and use this life meaningfully to the fullest extent for Your pleasure and Gurudev’s pleasure. I am praying for Your mercy, service, protection and guidance, Srila Prabhupad.

Your granddaughter seeking Your service,

On the auspicious occasion of the 125th Appearance Day of Srila Prabhupada, the founder-acharya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), I offer my humble and respectful obeisances.

Srila Prabhupada, is a true spiritual ambassador of India, instrumental in spreading the priceless treasure of Vedic knowledge globally, in a short span of time.

He endeavored tirelessly to create awareness of the great spiritual happiness that was available in devotional service to Lord Krishna.

A pure devotee of Lord Krishna, motivated by no desire other than to offer the greatest spiritual gift of devotion to Krishna to all human beings, Srila Prabhupada’s life is an inspiring story full of dedication and courage.

All glories to Him!

Hare Krishna!

Offering by Balaji

Dear Srila Prabhupad,

My heart felt sincere obeisance to you. I touch your feet to take your blessings.

I am short of words today to tell how deep a positive impact you have created in my life.

I have already been attracted to Krishna (when in my family – Lord Balaji and Ram have been the primary forms of Vishnu that are prayed to), and the attraction to Him was very gradually increasing.

Then I passed through some low time, which I now understand – was a shake from Krishna to pull me up. And then He handed over me to you – what else could I have asked for.

I have been hearing that the Guru would come in your life when the time comes, and then it happened on 23rd Aug 2020 that I started the Gita course from ISKCON Whitefield, and my life slowly started changing.

I have gradually but steadily moved upwards, and I can see that my anarthas are leaving and going off slowly. It is really like a dream for me – my Krishna has made me associate with people who only speak Krishna; and all glories to you to have started such an organization and laid its foundation in such a way that it is still continuing the same way- bringing so many souls into Krishna consciousness.

The more I hear about you, I get so astonished, but then I realise that only a real acharya from the spiritual world could have done this.

Also, what a splendid foresightedness – to have got all your lectures and classes recorded and that too in those early times of 1960s/70s- we are able to hear your voice and experience the divinity.

I hope by next year, with your blessings and Krishna’s Grace, I would have grown little more and would be able to write out my mind better and able to open up my heart in words.

My humble heart felt obeisance to you again.

Thank You
Regards
Balaji

May your glories continue to grow stronger and stronger year after year!! May more and more people get to understand, adopt and share Krishna consciousness and the whole world become Krishna conscious as you had wanted!!

Out of compassion and mercy upon all the fallen souls you gave us the absolute knowledge through your books and the purification process of Harinam sankirtan! Everytime we read your books we get to appreciate more and more of your mercy upon all of us. How much care you had for everyone and wanted all of us to make our this life itself a success. You have given us the sense of urgency and purpose. Chanting in your vani association gives us so much contentment in our hearts.

But Prabhupada, we are so conditioned that we are still taking this opportunity lightly.

We pray at your lotus feet to please bless us that we not only read your books but also understand and adapt your teachings in our lives so that we can do our sadhana attentively, endeavor to serve Gurudev in your mission and represent You and our Guru parampara nicely around us!

My dearmost Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

Thank you for taking mercy on me Prabhupada. After all, you are patita-pavana, and so it’s not surprising that you chose to take me in your shelter despite how gravely fallen I am.

Thank you for guiding me with your vani and your purports. You took so much pains to write the purports to so many transcendental books. I can feel you speaking to me and guiding me everyday via your purports. I would be so lost without them.

Earlier this month in Mayapur, as I sat meditating on you on the steps of your Pushpa samadhi mandir, you reciprocated so wonderfully to my prayers and apprehensions. It left me even more convinced that you are here with me every moment, helping me, guiding me and answering my prayers.

I can’t do anything without you. You often say with respect to devotional service ‘What is the difficulty’. Only if you are with me Prabhupada, there will be no difficulty. Else nothing seems possible. Prabhupada, you know it well that I am just a toddler in Bhakti. Please don’t leave my hand Prabhupada. I need you to be able to stand up and walk, now and forever. Please always be by my side as you have been.

Despite you being so kind, I often feel that I haven’t done anything for you or your mission. Please empower me so that I may do my bit.

Dear Srila Prabhupada
Please accept my respectful obeisance

All glories to you.

Being involved in this material nature fully, it was highly impossible for me to even believe that I can walk on the journey of spiritual life. But your mercy enabled me on this path by showing the light of divine teachings. So I’m very grateful to you!!

Would like to say that journey of your life truly inspires and motivate me as at the age when usually general people fear and wait for end of their lives , You started new journey of your life and your pure Krishna conscious soul awakened mankind with totally divine and joyful aspect of life. Your divine soul is mesmerising and a guiding light to us.

In this age of kali where all degraded souls are involved in toxicity, your preaching and writings are showing easiest way to come out of all the dirt and realise our love and connection to the supreme soul.

Thank you so much for all your selfless efforts and dedication to enlighten us.

Yours eternally,

ei candra sūrya dui parama sadaya
jagatera bhāgye gauḍe karilā udaya

These two, the sun and moon (Lord Sri Krsna Caitanya and Lord Nityananda), are very kind to the people of the world. Thus for the good fortune of all, They have appeared on the horizon of Bengal (CC Adi 1.102). They appeared on the horizon of Gauḍadeśa to spread the science of Kṛṣṇa consciousness, and as predicted that just as the sun and moon gradually move west, you brought the movement They began five hundred years ago to the Western civilizations. You truly are the jagad-guru; you are that senapati-bhakta of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Yet, out of humility, you attribute your contributions to your disciples.

Dear Srila Prabhupada, on your 125th appearance day, I pray to you, desiring to imbibe your mood in carrying out devotional service- not to maintain a rustic image of a lone Indian sage from an ancient village sparking a spiritual revolution; an image that might appeal to many on a superficial platform, but to fulfil the desires of your spiritual master and deliver the conditioned souls in the western world, who Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura said needed saving more than anyone.

You have given me the good fortune by which I am given the opportunity to chant the Holy Names, to have Lord Sri Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Himself dance on my sinful serpent-like tongue. It is all by your causeless mercy that I am able to associate with the teachings of the most exalted acaryas, who are all eternal associates of the Lord (nitya siddhas). I meditate on how eternal associates of the Lord (nitya siddhas) like you descended to this martya loka, dukhalayam, facing so much criticism and suffering just to deliver the foolish suffering fallen souls, who are oblivious of their constitutional position, which is eternal. Yet, I am such a rascal that I often get bewildered and do not fix my consciousness.

“Devotees are always merciful, humble, truthful, equal to all, faultless, magnanimous, mild and clean. They are without material possessions, and they perform welfare work for everyone. They are peaceful, surrendered to Kṛṣṇa and desireless. They are indifferent to material acquisitions and are fixed in devotional service. They completely control the six bad qualities — lust, anger, greed and so forth. They eat only as much as required, and they are not inebriated. They are respectful, grave, compassionate and without false prestige. They are friendly, poetic, expert and silent.” Srila Prabhupada, you embody each and every quality mentioned in CC Madhya 22.78-80.

You are the uttama-adhikari devotee we have read of. You personify the qualities of a spiritual master that the Vedas sing of (vede gāy jāhāra carito). You embody humility; you considered yourself a servant of your disciples; you considered yourself to be fortunate to have the association of your disciples.

Srila Prabhupada, you can see the past, present and the future. You understand the mood of your disciples and reciprocate with them accordingly. I recall and meditate on the incident when one of your disciples remarked that he was the most fallen, and you replied, “you are not the most anything, you are simply insignificant.” Please make this insignificant and fallen rascal humble.

“Krishna is yours; you have the power to give Him to me. I am simply running behind you shouting, “Krishna! Krishna!”

It is said that if one gets even one syllable from a guru, a person becomes eternally indebted to him for that spiritual gift. We are truly eternally indebted to you as we received thousands of purports, which comprise millions of syllables.

With a grateful heart, I beg at your lotus feet for your blessings so that I can serve you. The world has been blessed by your mercy. Please forgive me for my offences at your lotus feet and bless me with intelligence so that I do not commit offences further. Please give me the intelligence so that I can follow your teachings. I have no intelligence of my own. All that I have is your mercy.

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

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

After being associated with your glorious organization for more than 15 years, I am making a first attempt to put few lines of glorification and gratitude at your lotus feet on a piece of paper.

Although informally I have spoken about your glories on several occasions, but never attempted to write something on your birthday. I am such a fallen and wretched person that even to write few lines of Glorification of Your glorious self I need Your mercy.

Now that I have spoken about “Your Mercy” I want to thank you for saving me by “Your Causeless Mercy”:

  • Thank you for creating Krishna Conscious warriors(devotees) who pulled me out of dark hell and handed over to me bead bag to kick start my service to you and Krishna by chanting the Holy name.
  • Thank you for giving clarity on the Krishna Conscious philosophy , I was a wandering like a mad elephant with no ambition, you brought clarity in my life that Krishna is God and we as humans should serve him with a consciousness of being eternal servants.
  • You showed by example , how to be a devotee, how to deal with a devotee, how to love a devotee, how to preach, how to manage, how to tolerate, how to forgive, how to pass Lord Nityananda’s Mercy. Thank you for all this. Despite reading so much, learning so much about you, I am a stone hearted person who is refusing to mend my ways, I always have difficulty in interaction with devotees due to my conditioning. Please bless me so that I become humble and realize that I am dependent on you and your warriors, like Purandara Dasa asked us to become “Guruvina Gulaama – Slave of your Guru” , I want to become one slave, but all the past conditioning and week will power stops me from becoming one. I from bottom of my heart thank you for making so wonder full devotees , they simple forgive all my misdeeds and accommodate me in your organization, engage me in services despite my infinite faults. Due to engagement in services I am saved from falling down fully into animalistic propensities.

  • Laziness and complacency overcomes all my aspirations to strictly follow the devotional regime you provided us, by following which one can become a good servant/slave of Lord and Guru. Even at the ripe age you showed how to be enthusiastic, how to write/read books, how to be strict in your spiritual practices, thank you very much for being so compassionate towards us. At least by repeated contemplation of how you guided us someday by your mercy I will be able to follow all that you instructed (I mean atleast the basic instructions for a devotee)
  • Your books are nectar , but due to lack of enthusiasm , strong interest, strong will power I am unable to taste that nectar daily and pass it on to others. By the grace of your warriors I sometimes feel a rush of adrenaline and go a reading marathon, which eventually dies out. On this one aspect of bhakti I need your special mercy, I want to be steady in my reading practices, which I am failing in my every attempt all these years. Sometimes I feel only a miracle can help me overcoming the mental blockage of steady reading habit of your books. I heard from HH Romapada Maharaja, that how you used to raise in the middle of night to write books for us and I, a thankless , lazy, ungrateful person does not even take time to read them. One thing I am sure Dear Srila Prabhupada that being with devotees and serving them, by their mercy, I may improve in this habit.
  • Without you I would have been doing the same things again and again without deriving any happiness. Now I have bhajan, kirtan, katha, prasad, association of wonderful devotees, my kids are also engaged in various aspects of devotional life from very beginning of their life, all this is possible by Your grace and mercy upon generations to come. Thank you on behalf of Sunita, Vishnu and Arjun, for giving us a life of devotion.

O Ocean of Mercy, although you are mercifully delivering me, I am unable to properly serve you at any time or in any way. I beg at your Lotus feet that Your merciful message of sanity continue to reverberate in my heart, subduing the egoism and foolishness therein, sustaining the conviction that I must remain at your lotus feet or I am doomed.

Desiring to be your worthy servant, eternally indebted

Dear Srila Prabhupada
Please accept my respectful obeisance
All glories to you.

Thank you so much Srila Prabhupada for giving us so many amazing books and translating books like Srimad Bhagavatam & Caitanya Caritamrta. I am trying to scrutinisingly study them and understand how to live in this material world. Thank you so much for giving us your association through the books.

We feel really obliged to come under your shelter, few years before we didn’t knew only about you and when we came to know about you we were mesmerised at your achievements at that age and in so much less time. We understood that you are a pure devotee of Lord Sri Krishna.

We seriously beg for your mercy Srila Prabhupada that we are able to chant nicely daily and preach. We want to become preachers of this message of Lord Caitanya. Seeking your blessings this day.

Yours eternally,

lava-mātra sādhu-saṅge sarva-siddhi haya

When I first read your Perfect Questions Perfect Answers book in 2002, I was amazed by the answers you gave. You said, “Krishna means all attractive. Unless God is all attractive how can he be God? Therefore, if God has any name, or if you want to give any name to God, only ‘Krsna’ can be given”. I never heard such an answer before. Though I always believed in God in my childhood, it was a mere sentiment rather than conviction and faith. Your words have made me think, “This person who is giving such wonderful answers is really amazing”. Little did I know that my connection with you and Krishna Conscious journey has started from that time.

Again in 2007, during my Post Graduate college, I saw the same PQPA book displayed after Bhagavad Gita discourse by one devotee in my hostel. I could immediately remember the book I had read long ago. Thereafter my connection with you and faith on you has further developed by reading your books and hearing your lectures.

Had you not come into my life in the form of a book, I can’t even imagine my current situation. I always felt deep connection with your divine grace from the day I have read PQPA book. You are the Perfect teacher, Loving father, and Krishna’s most beloved devotee. You has come to show us that, it is indeed possible to live by Vedic standards and achieve Krsna prema just by following the words of a Bonafide Spiritual master.

In this age of hypocrisy, quarrel, vice, groupism, etc., you showed us how to be genuine, how to lead by example, how to walk the talk, how to be a perfect teacher and a great leader. Though I lack all those good qualities of a devotee, my only qualification if any is faith in your words. I never had even an iota of doubt in your words. I humbly beg that my faith in your teachings increase more and more. I wish to come to a stage where I conduct my behaviour as per the standards set by you. I want to follow Krishna Consciousness only to please Krishna and Your Divine Grace and nothing else. Please give me strength to properly understand your instructions and follow them.

Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is called patita pavana. Being an empowered acharya in the line of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, you have also come to help fallen souls like me and make us taste the nectar of Krishna prema. I humbly beg for your mercy that I get full conviction that Krishna is indeed the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Who else, other than you, can I seek shelter and mercy from?

From the lectures of HH Romapada Swami Maharaja, I can feel his love for you. I can feel the love and genuine affection that you have showered on your disciples, which have made them dedicate their life for your mission. Please shower that mercy on me too.

Please bless all our Bhakti Vriksha members who are so sincerely trying to understand your message.

Please bless all the Vaishnavas who are sincerely trying to spread your message.

Please bless and shower your mercy on myself and my wife Neelima. You are our real shelter.

Your servant,

Offering by Ramesh, Vinodha

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept our humble obeisances unto your divine lotus feet. On this auspicious appearance day of your Divine Grace we would like to express our sincere heart felt gratitude for showing us the path to attain Krishna.

In Bhagavad Gita chapter 16 shloka 24 Lord Krishna says one should understand what is duty and what is not duty by the regulations of the scriptures. And knowing such rules and regulations one should act so that he may be gradually elevated. Our senses have 4 defects : They are imperfect, they have a propensity for cheating, they commit mistakes and they are under illusion.

Therefore in chapter 4 shloka 34 of Bhagavad Gita, Krishna says, Just try to learn the truth by approaching a spiritual master. Inquire from him submissively and render service unto him. The self realised soul can impart knowledge as they have seen the truth.

Srila Prabhupada, your teacher Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati asked you to go around the world and teach Krishna consciousness. Srila Prabhupada you had a lot of love and reverence for your teacher . And you simply followed his instructions inspite of the difficulties you faced in the path of spreading Krishna consciousness.

Your books have saved us from this materialistic existence and we are always indebted to you for having saved us from this material existence. You have come to this material world to deliver the fallen souls like us.

We have a strong desire to purify ourself and chant offensively. Please shower your mercy on us.

Your servant,

Ramesh, Vinodha.

All glories to your divine grace. Please accept my humble obeisances.

As every year pass by , in the association of inspired devotees under your shelter, it becomes more and more clear & evident that in this world of Kaliyuga, what you have done to each of us is beyond our imagination.

We are what we are today is because of you Srila Prabhupad.

You have given meaning to us otherwise would have been mundane life loitering in this material world.

It is amazing to see that with your divine association how the conditions soul are transforming every day , every minute every second in some part of the world.

Even though you are not in this physical world, but you are inspiring millions of souls.

I cannot imagine anybody doing that. You are the real magician, you are our path pradarshak, we are so so much dependent on you

Me and my family are very fortunate to be under your shelter & you are our real grand father who is the torch bearer for us and showing the path to come out of ignorance & onto the path of bhakti.

You have made Krishna Consciousnes easy to understand for everybody,…

I am offering a poem to you Srila Prabhpad. Please forgive me for my mistakes here.

कृष्ण भावना मृत है जीवन का सार

नहीं तो पढ़ रही थी माया की मार

एक प्यासे को होती है पानी की तलाश

श्रीला प्रभुपाद, आप आए मेरे जीवन में बन के कुछ खास

आप के छत्र छाया के बिना जीवन था नीरस और उदास

आप के किताब, भक्तों के संघ से आ पाया भक्ति के पास

बस श्रीला प्रभुपाद, हमें दिशा दिखाते रहिए

हम सब को अपने चरण कमलों के सेवा में लगाते रहिए 🙏🙏🙏

Thank you Srila Prabhupad … Thank you

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

My heartful obeisances to all the great spiritual masters in the guru parampara. A special spiritual guru who gave a lot of books to open our dormant spiritual knowledge and the truth about our true self is you (Srila Prabhupada).

Your important lecture that gave an efficient solution for the soul to come out of this material world is the first step for spiritual life for beginners and that was to see in this human life as “we are not this body but the soul within”. That was a great start for spiritual life.

Your books made up my devotional library at home and all are still in progress. My only goal in this human life is to make use of all your teachings that you gave to us in your books and lectures and impart that eternal knowledge to every human being whom I come across in this life.

I pray to you to give me all strength to go ahead with this goal to get achieved that would value as much people as possible.

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

I am very fortunate to be able to write this offering on your 125th appearance day.

A life without purpose isn’t a life that is lived. Srila Prabhupad by making me aware of the purpose of my life you have given me an opportunity to live meaningfully than to merely exist and perish. The innumerable books that you have written are my shining light in the darkness of this world.
Each line that you have penned I see as a direct instruction. I consider myself fortunate because many a times questions that arise in my mind are answered within the next 10 mins of reading your books.

If not for your presence in my life, this lifetime would have gone begging bereft of Krishna’s service possibly like many lifetimes in the past. If I have any understanding of life it is only because of this movement that you have so mercifully started.

Your mercy is so unfathomable. Where you have seen everyone as either a potential or a current devotee.

I beg at your lotus feet to continue to keep me always in your service. Looking forward to your blessings that my enthusiasm to serve vaishnavas always remains.

As Srila Rupa Goswami in Upadeśāmṛta 3 says:

utsāhān niścayād dhairyāt

It goes without saying that for getting liberated from the shackles of birth n death – to attain supreme bliss r nirvana r emancipation from this world one should first find a suitable guru, fall at his/her lotus feet and surrender totally.

Dear Gurudev, personally I am indebted to your struggle for unfolding the Path of Krishna Consciousness to the wandering souls and elevating them to the spiritual journey. You are an incredible inspiration for each and every devotee by showing that age is not a matter for learning/preaching spirituality to the thirsty souls.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for evincing interest and curiosity in spiritual matters and for reading many philosophical books and holy scriptures. You have guided me to minimize the mistakes and dangers on the path of spirituality and helped me to progress in the right direction.

HARE KRISHNA my dear spiritual grandfather Srila Prabhupada 🙏.
My heartfelt obeisance during your glorious 125th birthday.
All glories to you.

It is your devine birthday my spiritual grandfather and also my birthday from the darkness to KRISHNA consciousness.

I know it was not hidden from you, when I was also born on this day, that the entire Calcutta was flooded in 1978 and hence, I always remembered this day with sorrows. You made me realised how much blessed I am today, and what are the reasons of Sukha and Dukha in this material life.

Being surrounded by all great measteos in West Bengal, Shiksha was always my focus but I could never be satisfied with the University lectures as I could not retain them in my soul after passing those colleges. I was so fallen soul that I never thought of learning the true knowledge from Bhagavad Gita although I knew that Bhagavad Gita has all practical and scientific teachings of life which are eternal and trancedental.

It is Krishna’s mercy, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s demands and your grace that me and my family have started understanding the true Vedic knowledge and hence got a purpose of this material life.

You left with your precious Vani, priceless books in every cities, towns in this world which I beleive is enough assets for us to remain happy and make our transcendental journey successful in this Kali Yuga.

My dear grandfather, what I have to offer you? In reciprocation, you have offered me such a blissful Satsang, Seva and Bhakti which are main tatwa of my surviving today.

Please forgive me from all mistakes and consider me as a your grand child and please accept my Dandavat Pranaam with sincere respectful, blissful love in your devine Birthday.

All glories to you Srila Prabhupada.

Please accept by very humble and respectful obeisances.

Heartfelt gratitude for the ISKCON society, which you have created, and, for the teachings you have shared through your lectures, books and your disciples. If it wasn’t for your teachings, I would have been lost in this jungle of miseries. You have made the path, and, so beautifully paved it for us, so that we can follow you back to Godhead.
Prabhupada, your books are so enlightening. Everytime I realise, how much efforts you have taken to write the books, so that fallen souls like me, can be guided towards Home back to Godhead, I feel, I am not doing even the least effort to read and study them all.

Srila Prabhupada, since you are empowered by Krishna, and, you are an eternal beloved devotee of Krishna, you translated all the beautiful scriptures and wrote beautiful books. I am so fallen that I am not able to study your books regularly, and even when I study, my memory and intelligence is so very low that I am not able to recollect and comprehend whatever I have studied.

Today, I want to fall at your feet begging to you, to bless me, to be able to study and understand your books, so that I can pass it on effectively to many more souls, who are struggling like me in this world.

Praying and begging to You, to be able to serve You, in the way, You want me to serve,

Hare Krishna Dear Srila Prabhupada
Please accept our respectful obeisances

Dear Srila Prabhupada, thanks for your mercy which you are showering on us through your transcendental books,your lectures,your visuals,your audios of chanting Hare Krishna Mahamantra , various other vaishnava songs and association of devotees.All these always keep us motivated to stay in Krishna Consciousness.

You have given us this robust process of Krishna Consciousness just out of your causeless mercy ,though we fallen souls don’t deserve it at all ,but out of your compassion we got this mercy . Having access to all this treasure of your’s we are still not serious with this process of Krishna Consciousness.

So on this occasion of your 125th appearance day we recommit ourselves to this process of Chanting my rounds, reading your books, hearing your lectures on a daily basis. Recently I was hearing one of your lectures in which you asked about a particular shloka of Bhagwat Gita but audience present over there was not able to recollect that shloka and your response was “so you are not reading my books,you are just selling and am I writing these books just for selling ?”. So this shows how much importance you have given to reading your transcendental books.

We will never be able to understand you Srila Prabhupada with our imperfect senses but we have full faith in this process of Krishna Consciousness given by you. you literally burn midnight oil to provide this treasure to us. so again from today onward , now onward we will be more serious , recommit ourselves to this process of Krishna Consciousness.

Please forgive us dear Srila Prabhupada as we have made so many mistakes, we are making mistakes and we will make mistakes in future also but please continue shower your mercy on us ,as our efforts are very tiny , this is because of your mercy we are trying to practice Krishna Consciousness.

Also Srila Prabhupada thanks for keeping us always in association of devotees. your disciples and disciples of your disciples are taking good care of us.Thanks for everything Srila Prabhupada for core of our hearts, we will always remain indebted to you.

All glories to your lotus feet Srila Prabhupada .

Dear Srila Prabhupad

Please accept my respectful obesiences

All glories to you!

On this auspicious occasion of 125th vyasapuja I offer my pranam to srilaprabhupad.
I am not qualified to glorify the pure devotee like you srila prabhupad but if you can bless me then by following the order of senior devotees, I can speak few words about you his divine grace for my purification.

You are an ocean of mercy and you traveled to west to preach Krishna consciousness and you wrote the books to bring people closer to Krishna. You were always compassionate to all the people to take them from material world to back to godhead.

It is beyond my imagination how srilaprabhupad single handedly wrote so many books and amount of hardships he took to bring in movement of Krishna consciousness.

I want to thanks for changing my life, if you were not there I don’t know where I am, but yes I took many days to come to Krishna consciousness.you given us everything, how beautifully you have created Krishna consciousness setup for garihasthas like us.

You went to USA to spread Krishna consciousness at the age of 70 when most of the people are retire. Within span of 10 years, you have converted so many conditioned souls into wonderful devotees in and around the world. You are pure Devotee of krsna came to this world to inspire us to take Krishna conscious and take us back to godhead.

Srila prabhupada when I read your books I feel, you are instructing me through your books. Your books are saved so many souls in this world like me.

Srila prabhupada you are not an ordinary human being, you are representative of lord Krishna, you are senadhipathi bhakta of chaitanya mahaprabhu, you are the Param siksha Guru for all the Devotees.

Please give us the strength to do nice sadana and follow the regulations. So we beg to shower your mercy on us, so that we will be able to avoid offenses at the lotus feet of all vaishnavas and gain the taste for Chanting the holyname of the lord.

I seek your blessings to make progress in this path of devotion.

I have been ignorant all my life not realising what is the purpose of this human birth. It is your mercy that your teachings touched me through my Shiksha guru Hg Acyuta Arjunasakha Das and I have no words to express my gratitude for it. You took all the troubles in the world to follow the instructions of your Guru and in the process you have enlightened the mankind through the globe. Your books, this platform of Krsna Consciousness and simplified process of Bhakti that you gave has changed this world forever. Now, fallen souls like me see a hope to develop faith in Krishna and make this life worth by chanting the Holy name. I seek blessings of you, my guru and all devotees in my endeavour to walk on the path shown by you and be an insignificant soldier of your mission.

Your humble servant,
Tapan

My Dear Ajoba Srila Prabhupada🙏,

Please accept my humble obeisances,
I am a very fortunate soul that I found you and your teachings in this material world. It is through your books and the devotees I came to know about the Supreme Personality of God KRISHNA.
I always knew that KRISHNA is there but I never felt him with me until I met you through books, recorded lectures and devotees.
Lots of my unanswered questions got perfect answers. I am very thankful to you from within the core of my heart that my life got a meaning which I was always searching for.
Thank you for reminding me that I am a part and parcel of my beloved LORD KRISHNA.

Hare Krishna Dear Srila Prabhupada
Please accept my most humble obeisance’s. 🙇🙏🙇
All glories to you Srila Prabhupada.

Srila Prabhupada I am very grateful to you for everything you have done for us, like Vedic literatures written by you, nice devotee community all over the world and elaborate deity worships and so many other things. I try to read Srimad Bhagavad Gita and Srimad Bhagvatam as often as possible but due to my shortcomings and laziness I am still not giving my full effort to absorb in holy name and holy scriptures. I beg for forgiveness for not being good reader Prabhupada but at the same time I pray to you for your mercy so that I can develop enthusiasm for reading your books.
Srila Prabhupada whenever I listen or read about you it inspires me a lot to serve you in your mission of spreading Krishna Consciousness. But somehow I am unable to serve you with my best capacity. I have desire to serve you Prabhupada in servant of the servant of the servant mood. Please bestow your blessing upon me so that I can always be in humble serving mood.
Srila Prabhupada on your 125th birth anniversary I pray to you for your merciful glance upon me. I am so fallen and there is no hope for me to crossover this ocean of birth and death. But this can only be possible with your mercy Prabhupada.
Thank you Srila Prabhupada!!

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.

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.

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

You are glorious for your books in which you have revealed the whole spiritual world.

Everyday I approach you for your instruction by reading your books.

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,
Jitendra Sabat

Respected Dear Prabhupada,
By your causeless mercy we have got the chance to express our gratitude towards you. We know we don’t deserve to get the knowledge which you have given us in this lifetime. We seriously believe that we have no qualification. Neither do we follow your instructions as it is nor do we render any service for your pleasure, yet you are so merciful to us. In one lecture, it was told that you are not merely a doctor who treats the patients, but you also train the patients to become doctors. We are the patients who have innumerable diseases. Please treat us and use us as an instrument in your mission. You are like a touchstone who has turned so many stones into gold. On your 125th appearance day, we request you to take charge of our life and use it as you like.

Then you have translated Srrimad-Bhagavtam and Bhagavad Gita without your mercy we can not understand Chaitanya Charitamrita, Srimad-Bhagavtam and Bhagavad Gita

You have traveled to Western countries with Lot of struggles. But you want to fulfill your gurudev desire (to spread Krishna conscious in Western countries).

Then you started in 1966, lecturing in a storefront and your living in that apartment in New York. You began to chant Hare Krishna maha mantra. Slowly Krishna bhakti spreaded whole world .

You have established 108 centers all over the world. You wrote over 7,000 personal letters to his disciples, published in five volumes of books. You went around the world 12 times.

Hare Krishna, Our respectful obeisances to Srila Prabhupada!!!!

Srila Prabhupada Ki Jai!!

Srila Prabhupada you are not an ordinary human being; you are representative of Lord Krishna; you are Senapati-Bhakta of Sri Caitanya Mahāprabhu; you are the param Siksha Guru for all the devotees. To such a person we pay our humble obeisance unto your lotus feet.

Srila Prabhupada if you had not come, what would have happened? How could we have passed our lives? Who else would have distributed the unlimited mercy of Lord Nityānanda and Lord Gauranga all over the world?

Srila Prabhupada the whole world was suffering due to covid pandemic and because of you teaching us the devotional service, we were able to practice in our home irrespective of the situation outside. We are able to relish the nectar of Krishna Bhakti even in the midst of pandemic. There is nothing in this world to repay back for what you have given to us. All the struggle you have taken is just for us , it’s for us to elevate to a spiritual platform.

Srila Prabhupada without your mercy and compassionate on us, in last 2 years under the guidance of HG Hariksetra Prabhuji and HG Kartikeya Prabhuji, we were able to complete IDC course, get shelter from one of your disciple HH Jayapataka Swami Maharaj.

Our son Tattva Darshan started learning mridangam to serve Lord Krishna. Our humble request, please shower mercy upon Tattva so that he is always under the shelter of Guru & Gauranga and serve them eternally.

We are able to conduct Bhakti Vriksha and serve the devotees through preaching. All these could have not been possible without your mercy and we request you to give more guidance, capacity and strength to do more devotional service for Lord Caitanya mission.

Please bestow your mercy upon us such that we can get initiation from Guru Maharaj and serve Guru Maharaj eternally.

We have no words to express our gratitude towards you Srila Prabhupada. Please bless the Bellandur Devotees who have newly started Bhakti Vriksha. Please bless the devotees who are conducting Gita Courses for the first time. And bless the Bangalore devotees who are striving to fulfill the Guru Maharaj instructions to make Bangalore City a number one Krishna Consciousness City.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Gurudeva Ki Jai

O great sage of sages, I am indebted by your great mercy. You helped me see the truth. You helped me dilute the curtains of maya a little bit to further help me see Krishna in the form of Bhagvad Gita and Srimad Bhagvtm. If you were not there who else would have thought of me. I am so sinful but still you picked me to shower your mercy and pointed my focus on the great lord. How can I ever show you how thankful I am to you. Please accept my sincere obeisances to you mercy full feet.

Hare Krishna!
Dear Srila Prabhupada,
Please accept my humble obeisances!
We are eternally grateful for the divine association you have blessed us with. I still remember the first day I got connected to one of the follower connected to your movement, a day in August 2009. It was a life changing moment for me. I had all types of desires filled in my monkey like mind and all worldly ambitions in my head. But that day changed my perspective towards life. I had all lofty ideas about the spirituality, yoga and morality. The session was about ‘Power of Habits’ but it gave me a glimpse of the ‘ISKCON’ and you. The following sessions were eye-openers for me where I learnt about ‘Who am I’ and ‘What is the purpose of my life?’ I have been blessed with many matchless gifts from you and ISKCON movement and will try to list down some of them.

Your books are very simple and logical to make us understand the reality and futility of this world. Your extracted the essence of the Vedanta and gave us a library of ‘Bhakti Vedanta Purports’ where there is a solution to each and every problem of this world. You explained us we are not the body, the source of all identifications and misery. But as a pure soul we are always sat-cit-ananda and there is no other happiness than service to Lord Krishna! You convinced us the kindness of Lord, Who is there in every atom of the creation and how He is arranging for all the ‘jivas’ to come to Him but at the same time like broad minded father gives us ample free will out of infinite love for ‘jivas’. You have established ISKCON with seven main purposes and is one of the exemplary organization. Fortunately by Lord’s infinite mercy I have been to many of ISKCON temple and centers in India and in Amsterdam, Berlin and Hamburg. It gives a sense of how you have made ‘pure bhakti’ accessible and natural to all ‘jivas’ and you have empowered all your followers to continue the propagation of ‘pure bhakti’ far and wide.

Dear Srila Prabhupada, I can’t imagine what I would have been had I not been come in the association of ISKCON. Life has become more meaningful now because I see it beyond the short lived pleasures and pains of worldly life. Please bless me that I become more serious because I see that world is becoming very nasty place to live in day by day. Somehow we are not able to associate physically with one another and symptoms of Kaliyuga (quarrel and hypocrisy) are becoming more visible. Your empowered followers are inventing newer and newer ways to make ‘bhakti’ more accessible in these times as well and my gratitude towards you only increases. You had carried the ‘bhakti’ to West in very unfavorable circumstances and showed us how if we also remain pure and sincere, surely Lord will make us divine instrument of calling all the ‘jivas’ back to Him.

Dear Srila Prabhupada, I assure you that I will always represent you and ISKCON as best as I can through my deeds and behavior. This will be my primary service to you and my spiritual master.

Thank you!
Your aspiring servant.

Respected Srila Prabhupada, please accept my humble obesiences, all glories to you

You are the saviour of entire human society in this world. People were not knowing the ultimate goal of the life. Noone speaks so bluntly that goal of life is to back home back to Godhead. You have shown us the path and the easy path to go back home back to Godhead. You invested your entire life for us else you could have simply served Lord Krsna, performing devotional service alone and achieve Krsna but since you were so merciful that you want everyone to make their life successful. You have translated the scriptures like Bhagavad Gita, Bhagavatam in English and many others languages so that entire mankind can take benefit out of it. This job is tremendous. Your lectures inspires me a lot and I get more and more inspiration from you.

Please bless me that I remain on the path of bhakti and serve Guru and Gauranga without any slippage.

My dear eternal grandfather Swami Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obeisances unto your lotus feet.

You answered all questions of human beings, published so many books, translated each and every sloka of Bhagavad gita and Bhagavatham as it is, published books in all most all languages, recorded each and every speech, travelled all over the world at the age of 70 to give Krishna to all fallen souls, set an example of a real swamiji/guru/yogi to the world, explained about absolute truth(or God) in a way it is understandable to even kids, connected dots of all existing philosophies, made many followers, trained each devotee to realize their eternal relation with Krishna, constructed temples across the world, set simple and easy principles for highest perfection, taught us easiest ways to earn krishna prema and the list is endless.

Even then I am struggling to progress in Krishna consciousness. Please help me hold a little finger of one of your sincere followers that can drive me towards the highest possible perfection of this life. Also help me in removing all obstacles in Krishna consciousness one after the other.

Offering by Krsna Karunamurti Das, Yogini Yamuna devi dasi & Hemachandar K

Dear Srila Prabhupada
Please accept our most respectful obeisance unto your divine lotus feet

Your compassion to all fallen souls has no limits. Because of your compassion and sacrifice, the fallen souls (Krishnamurthy, Jamuna) took shelter of your beloved disciple HH Jayapataka swami Maharaj as Krsna Karunamurti Das and Yogini Yamuna Devi Dasi and many more is practicing bhakti yoga in the world today. It is impossible to understand Krsna without your teaching that Krsna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

You gave us wonderful disciples, wonderful philosophy in the simplest way to understand the lowest of mankind (us) in mlellecha language since we cannot understand Sanskrit. You sacrificed your life in the advanced age completely to write Srimad bhagavatham, Chaitanya Caritaamrta, Srimad Bhagavad Gita and many more scriptures which are required to understand our philosophy completely. You read all scriptures and brought all the necessary philosophy in Srimad Bhagavatam and Srimad Bhagavad Gita in your purport, in this way you made our Kaliyuga bhadda jivas life who is practicing and trying to practice easy.

You nicely digested Goudiya parampara mood and philosophy and you are very well connected with our parampara and nourishing us with the mercy of our precious acarya.

You gave all the essence of our previous acharya’s writing in your purport so that the badda jivas like us do not struggle any more to understand our previous Acharya’s writings. You are very loyal to our parampara, similarly your disciples also. My prayer to you dear Srila Prabhupada we wanted to be very loyal to our parampara.

Please shower your mercy on us to practice intense bhakti to Guru and Krsna and back home back to Godhead in this very lifetime.

Offering by Ramakumar Bommisetty

Dandavath Pranam and sincere obeisance to His Divine Grace A. C. Bhakti Vedanta Swami Prabhupad. This is my second year in this congression. At the first, I want to convey my sincere thanks to my associates for bearing with me all these times. By the mercy of these associates, I started my baby steps in Krishna Consciousness. My first interest was the Prasada. Keerthana was the second to prasada. These two made miracles in my life. They created interest in Sravanam ( hearing Krishna Katha) and then chanting. Bhagavat Gita lectures by His Grace Karthikeya Prabhu and His Grace Harikshetra Prabhu were mesmerizing and helped me in clearing many of my doubts and get clarity on the purpose of life. Our Bhakti Vriksha leaders (Balaji Prabhu and Indu Mataji) are our real role models in Bhakti path. We learnt many things and keep learning for a life time.

I started reading Prabhupad’s books by the force initially. Listening Prabhupad’s lectures on Bhagawat Gita and reading verses from Bhagawat Gita became part of my daily life now. I am really blessed with these lectures and writings. I want to continue this habit for my entire life. I am taking hours of time in writing these few lines. I can’t imagine how much pain Prabhupad has taken for writing so many books and so many volumes. Our life span is too small to cover these books. He made enormous efforts in writing books, letters, Keerthans, Bhajans, building temples and many more. His lectures are very simple to understand and straight forward to the point. I do not have words to express my gratitude to Prabhupad for all his contributions. I beg lotus feet of Prabhupad to bless me and help me to progress in this path.

I feel very fortunate to be given an opportunity to write an offering on to you on this 125th appearance Day .All though I don’t have any Qualification to glorify you as I am also one of the Rascals who has fallen in to the ignorance of conditioned living.It is because of the Cause less mercy of you and your Disciples that I have got this opportunity to glorify you.

Srila Prabhupada I was fallen in to the deepest well of Ignorance and was held in an abnormal condition of madness under the spell of Material energy.It was only after coming in contact with this movement that I am understanding the shear madness I am acting . It is because of the scriptures/philosophy that you have presented to us that I am able to realize my position and you have added a new dimension to my life.

I have been in this movement for almost 5years now and I am very grateful to you and this movement for the amount of transformations it has given to my life.
Prahbupad in one of you lectures you have said about the importance of scrutinizingly studying your scriptures not just reading it,After 5years of reading your books I am just now trying to understand what you meant.Every word in your books has lot of in depth meaning ,you have taken so much of pain to present us this philosophy but I am so much conditioned that I am not able to take time and study the philosophy which you have given a easy access and come out of my conditioning.

I am eternally thankful to you for giving a purpose to my life and have defined a path for achieving the real goal of my life.You have presented us an authorized programme of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu to cure our madness from the material spell,Although it is very difficult for a conditioned rascal like me to come out of this madness I sincerely pray to you that some how or other you pls engage me in fixing my mind on to Krishna.

I am seeking your special mercy to end this current situation of being locked up and not taking physical association of Dieties and Devotees as early as possible.

Dear Srila Prabhupada we beg you to kindly bestow your mercy on us so that we may be able to serve you and your mission as a family .

At an age when everyone thinks of peaceful existence, you went through countless hardships to execute an instruction of a spiritual master and provide Krishna prema to most fallen people like us.
We are indebted to you more than what we are indebted to our parents, material teachters, friends, demigods all put together

I seek your blessings and causeless mercy, O messenger of Krishna, please bless us(people like me) that
We develop a taste for chanting holy name & maha mantra

We develop strong will to follow nectorian instructions and path of great devotees like you.
We continued to remain faithful to the process and continue to follow the instructions of our mentors

Dear Prabhupad,

Sometimes I feel if you’ve not presented this philosophy to the west what would happen to creatures like me. You’ve reignited the love of Krishna and his name within me. Now this has become the sole goal of life.

It’s impossible to replay the debt of your causeless mercy. In Fact glorifying you, itself is a big task for a fallen soul like me. Today we’re trying to find a place for our center. We’re in need of your blessings so that we could able to succeed in this endeavour.

Due to your mercy there are lots of devotees and many more are joining the mission. The knowledge of Bhagavad Gita & Srimad Bhagvatam is lightening my life and is attracting many people to the mission. This transcendental knowledge is propagated by you and spread by your disciples throughout the world and one such devotee Amit prabhu brought this knowledge to me.

I will be eternally indebted to you & your disciples for changing my life for good.

All glories to Sri Gauranga & Nityanada.

I am a fallen soul materially lured by the “Free” word to learn Bahagvat Gita.And that bought me to the divine grace of Gauranga and Gurumaharaj and through them I could hear about your life and how you made the Krishna conscious movement reachable to millions of fallen souls like me.

Thank you for allowing me to get to know you and through your books and your devotees,Lord Krishna and Chaitanaya mahaprabhu.My life would have been meaningless if you have not extended your hands to pull me from the well of material world.

I request you to have the mercy on me so that I can read all the books you have written,listen to the lectures and help in spreading the Krishna conscious movement to my near and dear ones.

I seek your blessings to make myself fully absorbed in thoughts of Krishna and Radharani .Allow me to remember you always and thanking you .

Please shower your blessings to my spiritual guide and Guru ,Acyuta Arjuna sakha Das and my mentor Amal Prabhu so that they can grow more in their journey of Krishna Consciousness.

Why we should pray to God and what to be desired has changed completely since started following your instructions through your disciples.

Dear srila prabhupada,
I offer my humble and respectable obeisances unto His Divine Grace Prabhupada A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami srila prabhupada, who is very dear to Lord Krsna on this earth, having taken shelter of the lotus feet of Sri Krishna. you are alone at the age of seventieth year, threw away your family and left India and set sail around the earth to foreign, unknown shores because your spiritual master spoke to you to spread krishna consciousness to the entire world. you carried the glorious message of the munificent Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhuto the entire world and you brought an ageless message of love for Godhead.

you landed in Manhattan with saffron robes, a suitcase and seven dollars and wandered at maya’s skyscrapers and empty, noisy dreams and you accepted residence with hippies and drug addicted people for spreading the message of lord chaitanya. you lost all your belongings at the initial stage of preaching but you didn’t left the moment to spread krishna consciousness. you journeyed downtown, out of compassion, and set up quarters in the Lower EastSide narrow mice-ridden storefront and trusted Krsna to bring next month’s rent.you don’t have place to stay and sleep but you tried to purchase the temple for krishna. whenever you see a good building you want to turn it into a Krishna’s temple.

you opened the storefront doors even to Bowery derelicts and clashed cymbals and chanted Sanskrit hymns to God, whose vibrations caught the ears of young psychedelic middle class renegades searching for alternatives to their legacy of lies and materialism. you had and everlastingly has infinite mercy, delivering it free of charge, a matchless gift, to whomever stops to hear, you never, to my knowledge, turned one soul away, you effused them all with kindness, affection, truth and love. you treated us as your children. who had mercy on my soul one bright July morning amidst the roaring Manhattan traffic of Houston and Bowery (Most holy spot! Transformed to Vaikuntha by his feet! Bowery transformed to Vaikuntha!).

you lectured every morning on Second Avenue and as the gold of dawn lit his face played cymbals and chanted softly, careful not to awake the neighbors lest they pour hot water through the floorboards. you opened Bhagavad-gita and explained Sri Krsna’s message verse by verse and set His names — Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare, HareRama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare — on the lips of the every person in the world. I came to know how much effort you kept after reading prabhupada lilamrutha.You did lot of service for cooking, initiation, marriage ceremony and all those can be possible only by you and you are the Gods senapathi bhakta.

All glories to His Divine Grace AC Bhakti vedantha Srila Prabhupada.

I am a very tiny dirty soul and not having even one percent of qualification to glorify you.

Please help me in progressing in krishna consciousness.
Your servants and childrens,
Rajesh & Ragini.
