Offerings of Love

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

Offering by Hariksetra das

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

You are the commander in chief of Lord Caitanya, who spread Krishna consciousness through the hard coverings of passion and ignorance of the western world. It is no ordinary human task. Translating books, preaching, guiding devotees, creating and managing a worldwide organization, inspiring devotees to take up Krishna consciousness deeply, traveling without stopping, and many more, which no ordinary person can imagine doing them. It is inconceivable and beyond imagination. Just like the Supreme Lord, His empowered representative your divine grace is unlimited by the grace of the Lord. Just like Supreme Lord cannot be understood by material senses, we cannot understand your divine grace by material mind and senses. It is only when we get purified we can understand you.

As the years pass by, my appreciation for your divine grace is steadily increasing. As mentioned earlier, the practice of pronouncing your pranama mantra with focus, helps me feel your presence. That offers an immense feeling of security and nourishment. Your instruction of chanting without offenses, later cemented at the time of initiation is a simple yet difficult instruction to follow. When I seek your help chanting the lines “Krishna se tomora, Krishna dite paro, tomara sakti ache”, Krishna is yours and it is completely within your powers to bestow Krishna upon me, that helps me to focus on chanting and experience your shelter and protection.

Studying your books and speaking from them nourishes me and sustains me. By the grace of Gurudeva, we have got the instruction to make Bangalore a Krishna conscious city, create 100 centers, and many more. It is a lifetime project and we are very fortunate to receive such a bonafide instruction that can completely engage us. It is all by your mercy. We are ever grateful for engaging us in your divine mission.

This year we celebrated Janmashtami in 8 different locations and as a follow-up, the Gita course is about to start in all these locations. We are about to start 3 more centers soon. It is all possible because of your mercy and sincerity of the leaders and devotees in our community. We are still looking for suitable land to build a temple in this area.

Mind is not fully purified, sinful thoughts still cross often. I am no one to be engaged in the pure service of the Lord. Though I am not pure and not worthy of such mercy, you have chosen to shower such mercy that you engage me in the bonafide service of the Lord. Remaining always grateful.

Your servant

Offering by Neelambari Radha dasi

Hare Krishna dear most Srila Prabhupada,
Please accept my humble pranam.

The more time I’m spending in Krishna consciousness, the more I’m realizing that what you’ve given to this world and how you’ve appeared as a real empowered representative of Lord Krishna and our Guru parampara.
Your unflinching faith in Krishna and Hari-naam and your unwavering determination to fulfill your guru’s mission is source my inspiration.

I truly admire you as Mahabhagavat when I realize that how you demonstrated below mentioned sublime principle of Srimad Bhagavatam:
आभीरशुम्भा यवना: खसादय: ।
येऽन्ये च पापा यदपाश्रयाश्रया:
शुध्यन्ति तस्मै प्रभविष्णवे नम: ॥ (SB 2.4.18)
Any class of people Kirat, Huna, Pulinda, Yavana, Chinese, Mangolinas, Russians, Germans, tribes….anyone who is engaging in sinful activities or anyone irrespective of cast, creed, time, place can be purified by taking shelter of pure devotees of the Lord.
You practically demonstrated it in your presence as well as in your physical absence.
I’m eternally grateful to you for inducing faith in my heart for scriptures, for Krishna, for Vaishnavas and for things related to Krishna.

Your eternally grateful servant
Neelambari Radha dasi

Hare Krishna

Esteemed guru Srila Prabhupada,

On this most blessed and auspicious day in kaliyuga, the celebration of your appearance; Sri Vyasa-puja, please accept my most humble obeisance’s at your divine lotus feet. I am just an insignificant disciple under your Divine Grace, who repetitively performs misdeeds, still constantly waits for your causeless mercy to be bestowed upon me. Please bless me so that I never give up my faith, or my love for you, nor the hope that someday I may become a worthy disciple. I pray to you to keep me guiding and motivating to follow your path and engross completely in Krishna consciousness.

your humble servant,
Anita Rathore

Offering by Amalatma Haridas and Family

Respected Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my prostrated obeisance’s at the dust of your lotus feet.

nama om vishnu-padaya krishna-preshthaya bhu-tale
srimate bhaktivedanta-svamin iti namine!!!
namas te sarasvate deve gaura-vani-pracharine

I feel proud and honoured to get an opportunity to write your Vyas Puja Offerings in the 125 th year celebration. How, I realise now, having lived in the association of devotees and under your wings for some time, that you being the true representative of the Lord Sri Krsna, showing me path, empowering me in all my endeavours, be it materialistic (as some deeds bound to have materialistic stinge in this Kali-Yuga) or Spiritual. Keep your Kripa Drishti unto this fallen soul dear Jagat Guru Maharaj, so that I carry forward your fore- most desire of spreading Krishna Consciousness and most favourite Book distribution my humble way. Your simple teachings of sincerely Chanting of Harinam Mahamantra and resolutely following Four regulative principles is also felt burden for some in this iron age or Kali kale, still with your empowerment got two jivas to religiously follow them, saved them from going out from the main stream. As for me, I am chanting 20 rounds daily and on special days 64 rounds.

I was asked, will you leave ISKCON? We are wedded to ISKCON now, nothing can change/ break this wedlock at least in this life time. Srila Prabhupada on the auspicious day of June 19 this year, one of your most trusted, dedicated disciples, His Holiness Jayapataka Swami Maharaj and the most resolute, enthusiastic your devotee as also my mentor, Hg Achutya Arjan Sakha, have ushered their mercy and awarded me, the most insignificant servant, ‘Harinam Initiation’. I am following all desired rules and regulations as has
been intimated, suggested from time to time. Please bless me Swamiji so that I am able to preach nicely and bring in more souls in the Krishna conscious movement, Bangalore in particular and else were in general, as desired by my spiritual master.

Your most fallen servant,
Amalatma Haridas, Chinmayi Chitra Sakhi DD. BANGALORE.

Offering by Saccidananda Vigraha Dasa

Dear Srila Prabhupad,

Please accept my humble obeisances at the dust of your lotus feet.
All glories to your divine grace.

tasyānubhāvaḥ kathito
guṇāś ca paramodayāḥ
bhaumān reṇūn sa vimame
yo viṣṇor varṇayed guṇān
[SB 8.5.6]

Just like no one can count the transcendental qualities of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, no one can count the transcendental qualities of your divine grace also. So, I humbly beg your divine grace to bless me to glorify your transcendental qualities.

Srimad Bhagavatam 1.5.11 says that Srimad Bhagavtam is meant to create revolution in the impious lives of this world’s misdirected civilization. Similarly, your divine grace has actually created revolution in the lives of impious people through the propagation of the message of Srimad Bhagavatam.

Without you Srila Prabhupad, we could have gone into the darkest region of ignorance to suffer perpetually as mentioned by Sri Isopanisad verse 3. Without your divine grace, we could never have understood the importance of the human form of life. Even if we could have understood the importance of the human form of life without your divine grace, we could never have understood the process of utilizing it. And most importantly, we could never have understood the rare gift of human life is to gain the association of pure devotees of Krishna as exemplified by SB 11.2.29 below.

durlabho mānuṣo deho
dehināṁ kṣaṇa-bhaṅguraḥ
tatrāpi durlabhaṁ manye

Without your divine grace, we could never have understood that we are servants of Krishna and our life is meant to serve Krishna. Even though we are struggling very hard in our material existence, we could never have understood the purpose of life without you. Not only the purpose of life, we could also understand sambanda, abideya and prayojana only because of you.

When the entire world is appreciating scientists for their discoveries, you are the one who challenged scientists. You are the one who rejected Darwin’s evolution theory. You are the one who rejected scientists’ claim of landing on the moon. You have explained so simply the difference between a dead body and living body. Based on this, you were able to reject the scientific theory that life comes from matter. You have exposed scientists in all their false propositions. You have also explained the concept of interplanetary travel so simply. You have explained sastra in a way suitable to modern people. Not only have you exposed scientists, you have also purified them by saying Rascals and Fools. This shows your compassion to them.

Recently, my father has left his body suddenly due to Covid 19. It was a sudden shock for me. If I would not have been in contact with your ISKCON, it would have been very difficult to bear this situation. Transcendental knowledge received from your books as taught by your representatives helped me a lot to face this bitter truth and see things as they are. In this difficult situation, Lord Krishna has given me the remembrance to understand that both myself and my father are eternal spirit souls, parts & parcels of Krishna and my father has changed his body. This is the amazing effect of transcendental knowledge distributed by your divine grace. And I am hopeful that my father must have got a superior destination because of the prayers of so many wonderful devotees of ISKCON. So, this ISKCON is another wonderful gift to the entire world given by your divine grace. Your books became my friends and helped me a lot in this tough time. They encouraged me to chant Holy names, take shelter of the Lord, hear from devotees and follow the process of devotional service. More than that, your books helped me to be in touch with your divine grace and also practically helped me to apply this knowledge in my life.

You have created one house where each one of us can stay happily in Krishna Consciousness. You made Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavatam, Holy name easily accessible to everyone. You are the one who has awakened us from unnecessary necessities of life like TV, newspapers, cinemas, restaurants etc. You are the one who brought us to senses of simple living and high thinking. Without you, we could have lived our life like asses working hard day and night simply for sense gratification. You have enlightened us to the path of perfection of our life in Krishna Consciousness.

In CC 1.7.91-92, your divine grace informed us what actually makes a spiritual master happy. “The spiritual master is not actually happy if the disciple brings him money, but when he sees that a disciple is following the regulative principles and advancing in spiritual life [91]”. “It is another ambition of the spiritual master to see his disciples not only chant, dance and follow the regulative principles but also preach the saṅkīrtana movement to others [92]”. Taking inspiration from these words, I have started going to all Bhakti Vriksha members’ homes with the hope of pleasing your divine grace and your representatives. I practically experienced how eagerly they are all waiting for Krishna Consciousness.

As mentioned by your divine grace in CC 1.8.27 – Our disease is desire for that which is material; even while advancing in spiritual life, we want material acclaim. One must be freed from this disease. Pure devotion must be anyābhilāṣitā-śūnyam, without desire for anything material. I really felt that you were speaking to me when I read this a few days back. I felt in many other instances that you were speaking to me through your purports. This helped me to realize your statement -“I will never die. I will live forever in my books and you can take advantage.” With this recent purport, I am trying to take every situation as an opportunity to be humble and consciously trying to remember the goal behind service. Kindly bless me to apply your purports in my life.

With all these little experiences, I came to understand that we cannot repay your gifts. If there is little possibility of repaying you to a minute extent, I see the only way is to follow your instructions sincerely and seriously. Just like glories of Lord Sri Krishna are unlimited, glories of your divine grace are also unlimited. On this most auspicious day of your Vyasa-puja celebration, I humbly beg for your causeless mercy to follow your instructions sincerely seriously with utsāhā, niścayāt, dhairyāt to render service at your lotus feet for the pleasure of your divine grace.

Your unworthy servant of your servant,
Saccidananda Vigraha Dasa

Offering my Devendra Singh

My involvement with ISKCON is quite brief but found it an unique organisation in that apart
from awakening Krishna consciousness among devotees and apart from cleansing inner
self, it brings people together, something extremely important for a human society to survive
and thrive. All glories and credit goes to you and your vision for creating such a vibrant and
forward looking Krishna consciousness model.
Shrimad Bhagwad-Gita As It Is continues to remain one of the main Gita source for me for
seeking solutions whenever I find myself in any difficult situation.
I have written a small Hindi poem for your Janm Divas.

श्रीकृष्णचन्द्र जब जन समाज में, धर्म को ह्रसित पाते हैं ।
स्थापन करने धर्म कृष्ण, अवतार नया दिखलाते हैं ।

जब हो आवश्यक परिस्थिति बस, रौद्र रूप दिखलाते हैं ।
असहाय त्रसित मानव समाज में, भक्ति भाव जगवाते हैं ।

चैतन्य प्रभु बन युगल, राधिका कृष्ण रूप में आते हैं ।
और हरे कृष्ण के महामन्त्र से, कृष्ण राग बरसाते हैं ।

अपने प्रतिनिधियों के द्वारा, महिमा का गान कराते हैं ।
माया की पट्टी से आवृत, चिन्तन को मुक्त कराते हैं ।

इस क्रम में अभय चरण बालक, कलकत्ता में जन्मा आकर ।
जन्मोत्सव कृष्ण दिवस पहले, सब आनंदित प्रसाद पाकर ।

नन्दोत्सव पर था जन्म लिया, इस से नन्दू कहलाते थे ।
बालकपन में क्रीड़ा अवसर पर, देवालय में जाते थे ।

ठाकुर सिद्धांत सरस्वती से,छब्बीस उम्र में भेंट हुई ।
वे हुए प्रभावित ठाकुर से, मन में जागी चेतना नई ।

महाभागवत प्रेमी ठाकुर जी, आचार्य और दार्शनिक थे ।
गौड़ीय मठ कलकत्ता के वे, संवाहक और संस्थापक थे ।

ठाकुर सिद्धांत सरस्वती से, आगे चल कर दीक्षा पायी ।
स्वामी जी पर निज गुरु देव की, अनुपम अनुकम्पा छायी ।

आगे चलकर स्वामी जी ने, वृंदावन जाकर बास किया ।
दामोदर मन्दिर में रह कर, गिरधारी का सानिध्य लिया ।

गौड़ीय वैष्णव संस्था से उन ने, एक नाम उपाधि को पाया ।
भक्तिवेदान्त प्रभुपाद नाम, जिस पर राधेश राग छाया ।

प्रभुपाद जी की अंग्रेजी में, दक्षता सुदृढ़ अकल्पित थी ।
वेदिक विषयों की व्याख्या की, प्रतिभा भी सारगर्भित थी ।

आदेशित होकर गुरुवर से, महाप्रभु संदेश प्रचारण का ।
भारत की वेदिक विद्या का, अंग्रेजी में रूपान्तर का ।

भगवतपुराण भगवतगीता, का किया अंग्रेजी रूपान्तर ।
कर डाला गिरिमर्दन सम्भव, जैसे कोई जादू मन्तर ।

इस मुरलीधर शक्ति का बल, अति अतुलनीय ही होता है ।
जो करे समर्पित मोहन को, मोहन करता जब सोता है ।

जब मानव अपने पौरुष का, प्रति कण अर्पित कर देता है ।
वह कृष्ण कृपा से लिए कार्य में, विजय श्री पा लेता है ।

टंकण सम्पादन परिशोधन, पर किया नियुक्त स्वयं को ही ।
तज भूख प्यास आलस्य नींद, सब किया स्वयं जो लगा सही ।

सत्तर की उम्र जलदूत बैठ,न्यूयार्क शहर प्रस्थान किये ।
तैंतीस दिनों में हृदय गति के, विधि ने झटके तीन दिये ।

ईश्वर भी सक्षम लोगों की, घनघोर परीक्षा लेता है ।
बिन परखे पूर्ण समर्पण वह, कोई कार्य कभी वह देता है ।

आखिर कर वे पहुँचे बन्दर, श्री कृष्ण भक्ति के अनुगामी ।
सरकार विरोधी हिप्पी जन ही, मिले जहाँ उतरे स्वामी ।

स्वामी जी ने हरि नाम गीत से, हिप्पी जनों को तृप्त किया ।
श्रीकृष्ण नशे का पान करा, उन्हें नशे की लत से मुक्त किया ।

फिर अल्प समय में भक्त जनों की, संख्या बढ़ती गयी बड़ी ।
बनती है शृंखला और बड़ी, जब जुड़े कड़ी से नई कड़ी ।

संस्था इसकोन बनायी फिर, भूमण्डल में विस्तार किया ।
श्री कृष्ण कृष्ण श्री कृष्ण कृष्ण, की महिमा का गुणगान किया ।

अनगिनत पुस्तकें लिखीं आपने, मौलिकता दिखलाती हैं ।
हे ज्ञान सिन्धु हे प्रभुपाद, भक्ति का पाठ पढ़ाती हैं ।

विश्व में जगन्नाथ यात्रा का भी, श्रेय आपको जाता है ।
यदि गुरु का हाथ शीश पर हो, तो सब सम्भव हो जाता है ।

संस्था इसकोन फूलफल कर, भक्तों को राह दिखायेगी ।
सदियों तक जहाँ मनुज गोष्ठी, कृष्णामृत पीने आयेगी ।

श्रीकृष्ण महामंत्र द्वारा, जन में चैतन्य जगाया है ।
यूरोप अफ्रीका अमेरिका, आस्ट्रेलिया तक पहुँचाया है ।

श्रीकृष्ण सिद्धि और साधन का, एक सुगम मार्ग बतलाया है ।
जो साधन जोड़े समाज को, वह सबके मन को भाया है ।

साधारण शब्दों के द्वारा, श्रीकृष्ण तत्व समझाया है ।
उनकी लीलाओं द्वारा, कृष्णामृत पान कराया है ।

प्रभुपाद आपके चरणों में, यह कृष्ण भक्त करता वन्दन ।
इस जन्म दिवस पर करतल ध्वनि से, शीश नवा कर अभिनन्दन ।

This is very inspiring line Srila Prabhupada to get up and continue whenever we feel left behind or discouraged.

Your association through your lectures is like oasis in this desert of material existence.Thanks for this amazing ocean of lectures.

Hare Krishna. Srila Prabhupada ki Jai!! You are the senapati bhakta envisioned by Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu to free us from the clutches of Maya. Your contribution to humanity is immense with building of more than 108 temples across the world to deliver Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s message of Krishna Consciousness. Dandavat Pranaam to you and to your Spiritual Guru Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati for uplifting souls like me by delivering the message of Krishna Consciousness and making the environment conducive as such with the nectar of your books. Thank You, Thank You, Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Namah Om Vishnu Padaya Krishna Presthaya Bhutale Srimate Bhaktivedanta Swamin Iti namine
Namaste Saraswathe Deve Gaura Vani Pracharine Nirvishesha Sunyavadhi Paschaatya Desa Tarine

Dear Srila Prabhupad,
All glories to you, All glories to the Guru Parampara

With your kind and unlimited Mercy, today I am connected to the wonderful community of ISKCON. You have given us everything Srila Prabhupad in this material world to stay connected.

Your Books are the backbone for the ISKCON movement.You have brought us the sweet nectarian purport and analogies, without which it would have been very hard to understand the wonderful pastimes of lord and his devotees. Your books are the basis for our movement for generations to come who can appreciate and understand the movement in an unadulterated way.

You have blessed us with wonderful Guru Parampara, and great association of devotees without whom we would have never ever got any taste in hearing the holy name and in the Krishna Katha. Devotee association keeps us safe at every step even if we repeatedly make endeavours to fail.

Your divine grace , you have left your beloved Vrindavan & Radha Damodar temple to preach to western countries and faced lots of difficulty in bringing us the Joy of krishna consciousness. Now the whole world is dancing and singing holy name. You have simply united the whole world and gave us a Vasudeva kutumbakam.

At every stage of life , Srila Prabhupad you have practically demonstrated and lived by example. There are many teachings that are and will be taken by all your disciples, grand disciples and generations to come..
In a very short time you have shown how one should respect and handle life both spiritually & materialy, how one should handle Krishna’s assets. All these teachings are like precious gems.

I pray to Gandharvika Giridhari Mahaprabhu, Lakshmi Narasimha Dev to always keep us under your divine shelter and give us energy to appreciate the most valuable devotee association. We seek your blessings so that we always get absorbed in Holy name and develop taste in hearing Krishna katha.
We are deeply indebted to you Srila Prabhupad.

Praying at your lotus feet,
Your grand daughter,
Sirisa Haripriya Devi Dasi

Offering by Nishant

nama Om Visnu-padaya Krsna-presthaya bhu-tale
Srimate Bhaktivedanta Swamin iti namine
namas te Sarasvate Deve Gaura-vani-pracarine

yasya prasadad bhagavat-prasado
yasyaprasadan na gatih kuto ‘pi
dhyayan stuvams tasya yasas trisandhyam
vande guroh sri-caranaravindam

Srila Prabhupad’s Appearance Day is a very special day for all ISKCON devotees as they joyfully glorify their eternal saviour Srila Prabhupada on His appearance day.

Srila Prabhupada was sent by the Lord to fulfill Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s prediction- Prtvithe ache yata nagaradi grama, sarvatra pracara haibe more nama: In every town and village of the world, My name will be heard.

Srila Bhakti Vinoda Thakura wrote in his Sajjona-tosani, “Soon there will be a time when the chanting of Krishna’s name will be heard in England, France, Russia, Germany and America.”

Srila Prabhupada made a perfect appearance, led a perfect life and had a perfect departure. Srila Prabhupada lives forever through his books. This legacy will always provide the devotees with Lord Caitanya katha and teach everyone to chant the Maha mantra.

Yesterday on eve of Janamastmi, I saw your impact to the society and to the world. Even after so many years of your departure, the Krishna consciousness movement still is growing and how strongly it is growning. So many new souls are coming to know about Krishna consciousness because you Srila Prabhupada. You have given real meaning on what is the value of birth in human form and that too in bharat bhumi. Various devotes from different sect caste creed coming together and joining forces to spread krishna consciousness without any conflicts can only happen in this material world because of you Srila Prabhupad. You are our grandfather, you are the jagad guru, you the messiah. Every member in the family is benefitted because of you be it kids, husband, wife, youth, grandparents… everybody.

When first time I read your books, I found that it is filled with pearls of wisdom. For the first time ever in my life, I found that your books, your lectures have all the answers to all my questions. The answers were convincing, filled with logic.

The more I read your books, more I heard your lectures, more my love for you kept on increasing

I was wandering in the forest filed with thorny bushes and venomous serpents. But like a caring father you held my hand and revealed to be the most important secret which was the cause of all my sufferings.

During my spiritual journey, I have understood one important thing – the process to attain Krishna is simple, but it is not easy. No one in the entire universe can stop me from becoming a devotee of Krishna but my mind. It is my mind which is my fiercest enemy. When I go deeper, I find that it is my mind which is creating feeling of pain and pleasure for me.

Dear Srila Prabhupada, Please give me strength so that like Avantī brāhmaṇa in all situations and circumstances I should tolerate the urges of my mind. Nothing in this world should agitate me. Nothing in this world should allure me. For me pleasure and pain remain the same. Happiness and distress should not distract me from my eternal goal which is to contribute in spreading Krishna consciousness in my limited ability to this world with the association of wonderful devotees.

Dear Srila Prabhupada, I am eternally grateful to you for all you have given to me. I am not qualified enough to express it in proper words. Or I think there are not enough words which can ever glorify you.

Today the whole world especially the devotees are celebrating your Vyasa Puja. On this most auspicious day, I just want to say “Thank You” for everything. And I beg you to continue guiding me forever.

Small poem dedicated to you Srila Prabhupad:

Aap ne is duniya to di hai disha

Ab to lehra raha ha Krishna bhavana mrta ka dhwaja

Saare duniya ke jagad guru hain aap

Hum sab mein seva bhava ka pad gayaa hai amit chaap

Aap ke chatra chaaya ka ye hai parinaam

Saara jag le raha hai bhagwan Sri Krishna ka naam

Your eternal insignificant servant

Offering by Vennila

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

Dandawat Pranaam…
My heartfelt humble obeisances to you and all the spiritual leaders who are your disciples who are making the path of many lives clear by your instructions that are given from your valuable books that you have given us.

I feel so small to give offering to you as I am not that well versed in even completely understanding a great soul like you. But I could give out a tiny drop of experience that I got when I come in contact with your books or the deities and devotees in ISKCON.

I visited two ISKCON temples in last one year. Whenever I could hear the kirtans of devotees and could see you and the deities, I could get tears out of my eyes naturally that gives me some emotional bonding. Only your books fill my home and keep me going each day as I did not get a chance to get a regular association of devotees and get indulged in services at your lotus feet.

But for the next Vyasa puja offering, surely I will be near your one of the ISKCON temples and do any services that I can take up and get the most precious association of devotees who keep doing services energetically irrespective of their situation however it is.

Yours humble servant,

Offering by Amrtamayi Vishnupriya Devi Dasi

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 126th appearance day for showing us the path of Krishna Consciousness.

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.

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. 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.

I would also like to tell you that I got initiated by your beloved desciple, Srila Jayapataka Swami Gurumaharaj on June 19th and got initiated name ‘Amrtamayi Vishnupriya Devi Dasi’. 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 Prabhupad,
Your eternal servant,

All Glories to SriSri Guru and Gauranga.
All Glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Dandavat Pranaams Srila Prabhupada,

I am forever grateful and indebted to you for showing the difference between a Brahmana and a Vaishnava. It is the mercy of the Lord that flows through the parampara and what mercy it is ! I experienced great moments in life after getting in touch with the HareKrsna movement and realized what HareKrsna kirtan can do to the soul. But for you, how would confused souls like me know how close the Lord is to all of us and hankering to take us back to Godhead.

The Bhakti centre has so many Vaishnavas and under the guidance of Hari Ksetra Prabhu is trying to fulfill the wish of one of your eternal disciples, His Holiness Jayapataka Swami Maharaj. The wish is to make Namma Bengaluru as the first spiritual city that is entirely Krsna Conscious.

It is your divine grace and mercy that has seen SriKrsna Janmasthami celebrated in 8 centres in and around Whitefield yesterday. The Vaishnava leaders here extended your unlimited mercy and let me do Archaka seva to their Lordships SriSri RadhaKrsna, Sri Jagannath, Baladeva and Subhadra and SriSri Gaura Nitai. Please give me strength and always keep me and my next generations at the lotus feet of the Vaishanvas who are always merciful and help us serve their Lordships through serving the Vaishnavas forever.

Hankering for your mercy eternally, humbly

Sitarama Prabhu

Srila Prabhupad

Please accept my respectful and humble obeisances at Your divine lotus feet on the auspicious occasion of You 126th Vyas Puja. You are the Yugacharya who appeared to save humanity from the darkness of ignorance. You tolerated extreme obstacles in the material world to fulfill the instructions of Your beloved Spiritual Master the most exalted HDG Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur, which was the very purpose of Your appearance in this world.

Srila Prabhupad You are the crest jewel of all transcendentalists for You taught the highest knowledge in a very easy way and to the most fallen population of this kaliyuga. You brought the most esoteric philosophy of Vraja Bhakti and distributed it freely all over the world as the commander in chief of Lord Chaitanya’s army. And you taught the pure, core philosophy so easily that even the most unintelligent person can understand and simply kickstart their spiritual life by hearing from You just once. GuruMahraj says Lord Ram had the help of Hanuman , Lord Chaitanya had Lord Nityananda but You had none to help you but by Your spiritual strength You single handedly created a spiritual revolution on this planet.

Your BhaktiVedanta Purports shed light into the heart of conditioned souls. You save suffering souls like me and pour Your mercy through Your books by giving knowledge of the who God and what is our relationship with the Supreme . You explain with such simplicity the purpose of life without which people like me were wandering without any peace. You gave a glimpse of real pure unconditioned love to millions who had no clue what love is.

You build a society where people can learn, follow how to achieve the purpose of life – pure devotional service. Your beloved disciples uphold and demonstrate Your principles and are examples of Your flawless philosophy. Through Your pastimes You teach how one should take the spiritual master’s instructions to heart and give everything to manifest it. I am grateful that You have given the greatest benediction of my entire existence my Gurudev though I have no qualification at all. I pray to You to forgive my offences that I do in ignorance and immaturity. I beg You for forgiveness if I been casual in my dealings with Your dear dedicated soldiers. Please bless me with Your eternal shelter and keep me fixed on Your lotus feet and Srila Gurudev’s lotus feet. Please bless me with determination and sincerity. It was Your desire that there should worship of RadhaKrishna in every household. Please engage me as Your tiny instrument in Your preaching mission as Gurudev’s servant. Though I may have no intelligence by Your mercy anything is possible. Your glories are unlimited and it is very difficult for me to understand Your elevated position and the depth of Your mercy. I pray to You to keep me in Your divine shelter always.

Your grand daughter seeking Your protection and service, SMDD

Dear Srila Prabhupad,

My humble obeisance to you.

I was lost in the material life due to which I have undergone lot of sufferings. Your writings make me realize my mistakes and the purpose of life. You are still living and guiding through your books Prabhupad.

I thank you for making me experience bliss and ecstasy through Krishna Consciousness. I’m still in the process of learning how to serve lord and how to humbly respect all the devotees. I request you to guide me in this process.

Also request you to take care of the two souls who voluntarily donated during Janmaashtami pamplet distribution.

Hare Krishna!

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

All glories to you.

Please accept our humble obeisances.

You carried out the instructions of your spirtual master Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur with so much conviction and sheer determination. By this you have set us the greatest example why we should follow Spirtual Masters instructions, why we should take shelter of a bonafide Guru. These instruction of yours has enabled us and made us serious enough to take shelter of Guru. Otherwise we would have just been hanging around without any clear path spiritually.

You have devised means by which people may somehow or the other come to Krishna Consciousness. You were always in a mood of yare dekha, tare kaha Krsna upadesa. We pray at your lotus feet that we too imbibe this mood of yours and do whatever we can in the smallest possible way to connect mankind to Supreme Personality of Godhead.

If your guidance through various vedic purports weren’t there then we would have wasted our life doing nothing. You have made us realize the importance of getting a human body and how we should use our senses. We both are eternally indebted to you for guiding us to take the path of devotional service. We seek your blessings so that we may continue serving you and Krishna sincerely.

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept our most humble Obeisances unto your lotus feet!!

Once when you were asked by reporters of the grand reception that you had “What do you think of this reception?” you said “I am not very much fond of reception. I want to know how people give reception to this movement. That is my concern.”

You were always in service to your Guru and Krishna and saw ISKCON and its success as your service to your Gurumaharaj and advised all of us to maintain and increase it as our service to you and our spiritual master.

Your compassion, love and care for all was always forefront, not only for humans but also for all living beings. When you were leaving the Lenon estate after staying there for a few months,you went for a final walk to say goodbye to your friends and touched the trees, their leaves, like you used to on your morning walks during your stay. The next day there was a big storm and several trees got uprooted- liberated by your association!

By your mercy Srila Prabhupada, this year our humble center Iskcon Whitefield under the wonderful guidance of HG Harikshetra prji celebrated Janmashtami at seven places. People came in large numbers and were expressing their happiness to see such grand Janamashtami celebrations for the first time in this area. People were amazed to see all devotees happily and lovingly serving together throughout the day without showing any sign of tiredness or frown on their face. We all appeared to them as one big happy family despite the visible bodily diversities and they showed their eagerness to become a part of it. Devotee kids utilizing their talents in various services were a point of attraction and inspiration for many parents who expressed their desire to see their kids also grow up like them.State leaders had also arrived conveying the same feelings, appreciating the services of ISKCON to the society and pledged their continued support for ISKCON in the area.

All of this is because of your causeless mercy and compassion Srila Prabhupada!!

We pray at your lotus feet to please bless our humble center and all the devotees so that we can serve in your mission to spread Krishna consciousness around us as per the knowledge given by you, selflessly and in togetherness despite the difficulties that are presented to us!

Srila Prabhupada, you are our most loving compassionate grandfather and we are ignorant fools puffed up with false ego in need of your special mercy. Begging you to please bless us that we can read your books and endeavor to apply the teachings in our lives, develop some taste in chanting and always remain Krishna conscious, so that we can present ourselves as good examples to the society based on your teachings and be seen as an inspiration!

Hare Krishna Dear Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my respectful obeisances !!!

Though I don’t have any qualification to offer homage unto your exalted divine self,
But trying to do a small offering for my entire family purification.

I always wonder how you could able to establish ISKCON: a wonderful spiritual family, touring the entire world many times at fag end of your life. Thank you for spreading the Hare Krishna maha-mantra all over the planet. You are the real Jagath Guru, in taking Lord chaitanya’s preaching mission to entire world.

I offer satha-koti-dandavath-pranams at your divine lotus feet, as you have given us

HH Jayapataka swami, your loving spiritual son as Spiritual Master for our family members. But I am a rascal/fool that I don’t have sincere service attitude, may be due to lack of reading your divine books, I will try to put constant effort to read your books on daily basis.

I humbly praying at your divine lotus feet, to shower special mercy on our BV members to take up Krishna consciousness joyfully by taking shelter of a guru and be part of your Preaching movement. That is the only way, We can please your divine self.

My father, your spiritual Grand son, during his final journey, requested our family members to establish a small Bhakti center at our native town, which is around 800 kms from Bangalore. We are not sure how we can fulfil his spiritual desire and completely depending on Krishna’s mercy. I am trying to draw inspiration From your life teachings when I embark for such difficult preaching activities, under the guidance of Senior Devotees and Also completely depending on your mercy

Thank you Srila Prabhupada for making my life and giving my life’s real goal. I will try my best to follow your teachings.

Respected Srila Prabhupada
Humble obeisances.
I am yet to be into Krishna Consciousness. When everyone around me stops me from KC, still I don’t keep my foot back though I don’t put forward also. But when I read about you, I just wonder why should a 70 year old deceased person with three heart attacks do voyage in a cargo ship for 35 days to western countries of different cultures just having 40 rupees in hand, not knowing anyone over there, not knowing where to go…
Another thing about you that amazes me is, how could you write around 80 books and translate many after your 70. …
Thirdly you made it point to build 108 Iskcon temples across the world.

I thought Sanskrit knowledge is a must to read Bhagavad Gita and Bhagavatham. Your books proved me wrong. The deep minute explanations given in the books are exemplary.
Though many are trying to bring out the Puranas to light, only to a limited locality. You made it world wide.
I always have a question, who felt God, who told about Him for the first time. Except these sastras what could be that. Thank you very much for making it understandable even to fallen people like me.
You live through your books always as you said.
Your words are motivating and deeds are inspiring. I adhore You
Please forgive me if I have gone wrong anywhere in my words.

Dear Prabhupad,
My humble obeisance to your lotus feet. All glories to you. You are the saviour of this millennium.
I am fortunate to have connected with ISKCON for the last 3-4 years and received your mercy through your books, lectures, letters and temples. I started my baby steps in understanding Krishna Consciousness and Guru Gauranga’s devotional service process. I am becoming strong and pure by the process of chanting, reading books and hearing your Vani daily. Your writings and divine process are straightforward to understand and elaborate to meditate. Now, I can understand my constitutional position and goal in life.
All glories to my mentors and co-devotees who are always with me and guiding me on this path. I got an opportunity to serve as an in-charge for the book stall at the recent Janmashtami celebration in one of the centres. It gave me immense pleasure and bliss to serve, and I want to become an instrument in spreading Krishna Bhakti to others. I beg your mercy in providing energy to continue my journey in Krishna Consciousness and serving Guru and Gauranga.
All glories and glories to you Prabhupad.

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

nama om vishnu-padaya krishna-preshthaya bhu-tale
srimate bhaktivedanta-svamin iti namine
namas te sarasvate deve gaura-vani-pracarine

Please accept my respectful obeisances unto your lotus feet. All glories to you! On this auspicious occasion of your 126th Vyasa Puja, I shall attempt to glorify your Divine Grace, although I have absolutely no qualification.

tava kathāmṛtaṁ tapta-jīvanaṁ
kavibhir īḍitaṁ kalmaṣāpaham
śravaṇa-maṅgalaṁ śrīmad ātataṁ
bhuvi gṛṇanti ye bhūri-dā janāḥ

This verse from Gopi Gita [SB 10.31.9] which translates to “the nectar of Your words and the descriptions of Your activities are the life and soul of those suffering in this material world. These narrations, transmitted by learned sages, eradicate one’s sinful reactions and bestow good fortune upon whoever hears them. These narrations are broadcast all over the world and are filled with spiritual power. Certainly those who spread the message of Godhead are most munificent.” Certainly, Srila Prabhupada, you are the most munificent.

yadi Prabhupada na hoito tabe ki hoito
(e) jivana bahita kise?
nitai-gaurera apara karuna ke dita sakala dese

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 Nityananda and Lord Gauranga all over the world?

Merciful souls like you, being eternal associates of Lord Krishna descend to this mortal world, the abode of miseries, just to deliver fallen souls like me. There was no need to undergo so much difficulty, but you decided to single-handedly write books, distribute them, travel to western countries, and take all kinds of inconveniences, just out of compassion for the living entities stuck in the vicious cycle of birth and death.

Your focus on Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura’s instruction to print and distribute books is remarkable. I recall how you did not care for food, saved on transport costs, just to print books; the innumerable nights you spent translating the scriptures, compiling the commentaries and dictating the purports on the dictaphone, irrespective of your busy schedule or failing health. You took Lord Sri Krsna Caitanya’s message of “pṛthivīte āche yata nagarādi grāma, sarvatra pracāra haibe mora nāma” as your life’s mission.

Each of the previous acharyas accomplished one significant task. But you did all the tasks that the establishment of the movement of Krishna consciousness entails. Evidently, you embody all the great qualities of the previous acharyas. You truly are the jagad-guru; you are that senapati-bhakta of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

You not only taught us the art of living, but also the art of dying. You taught the world every aspect of life, based on scriptures in your lectures and books. You taught us how to remain equipoised and unperturbed in every situation. When you lost all hopes in your business in your early days, you remembered Krishna’s words (SB 10.88.8: yasyāham anugṛhṇāmi/ hariṣye tad-dhanaṁ śanaiḥ/ tato ’dhanaṁ tyajanty asya/ svajanā duḥkha-duḥkhitam). You had firm faith and conviction in the words of your spiritual master. You preached to the westerners without altering the truth, irrespective of whether or not they would accept the harsh realities, and boldly spoke against their abominable habits.

You embody humility; you considered yourself a servant of your disciples; you considered yourself to be fortunate to have the association of your disciples.

ekākī āmāra, nāhi pāya bala,
tumi kṛpā kori’, śraddhā-bindu diyā,
deho’ kṛṣṇa-nāma-dhane

“I do not find the strength to carry on alone the sankirtana of the holy name of Hari. Please bless me by giving me just one drop of faith with which to obtain the great treasure of the holy name of Krsna.” It’s deeply inspiring when you said that even if nobody’s willing to listen to us when we try to preach, cry out to the sun and the moon; cry out in the wilderness.

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. Your witty answers to the most challenging of questions serve as an inspiration to us to preach.

Ohe! vaishnaba thakura, doyara sagara,
e dase koruna kori’
diya pada-chaya, sodho he amaya,
tomara carana dhori

“O venerable Vaishnava, O ocean of mercy, be merciful unto your servant. Give me the shade of your lotus feet and purify me. I hold on to your lotus feet.”

krishna se tomara, krishna dite paro,
tomara sakati ache
ami to’ kangala, ‘krishna’ ‘krishna’ boli’,
dhai tava pache pache

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

śakti-buddhi-hīna, āmi ati dīna,
koro’ more ātma-sātha

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.

Offering by Atichandra Gaur Das

My Dear Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obesciences.
All glories to you,
Friend of the fallen,

I am writing this offering on your 126th vyas puja.

When I see so many fortunate people who have accepted Krishna consciousness then I realise that it is because of you there lives have saved. I am travelling in train while writing this offering and when I see that people are simply eating what they want then I think you have saved me from so many sins by teaching us how to offer to Krishna and take Prasadam which after so many years I learnt that it is not very difficult. As you mention in CC purport that by mercy of Lord difficult things become easy and here is what I see.

I was listening to your lecture where you were stressing so much on book reading. You were saying that ‘I am writing this books day and night so that you all take benefits’ but I am so unfortunate that I am not endovering as much as I can to read your books. On this Vyas Puja day I will now make all my efforts to read your books everyday.

This pandemic has changed life of so many people and when I saw many videos where people are taking shelter of ISKCON for Food, Shelter, emotional needs I understand that only Krishna Consciousness can save the world from all these miseries.

During our preaching activities whenever I ask a question to new people that what they ultimately want in there life and response I always get is ‘Happiness and Peace’ and it is because of you only I am able to understand the real meaning of peace and Happiness.

Last year in Book marathon while distributing books I came to meet so many people who were saying that we are waiting for this book. And that what you say in lectures that people are waiting outside. This inspires me to continue go on book distribution. I pray at your lotus feet to kindly remove all my false pride while doing any service that pleases you and your desciples.

Current I am serving at my capacity whatever the local temple authority instructs me.

I have heard that Grandfather has a special love for grandchild so a grand desciples please forgive me for all my foolish mistakes that I have made.

Your meanial servant,
Atichandra Gaur Das

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

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

This is my first offering to you Srila Prabhupada. I don’t know how to express my gratitude for everything that you have done for us. You accepted so many inconveniences and tribulations and disappointments just to spread the message of Krishna Consciousness. By your grace, only conditioned souls like me are able to chant the name of Krishna and are getting His blessings.

You brought light into my dark life and gave a purpose and direction to my life. You gave us the highest philosophy and explained to us what supreme Absolute truth is. Your mercy is the only thing that can save us from this dark cold world.

Thank you Srila Prabhupada for giving us such a nice programme of chanting Hare Krishna and Spreading Hare Krishna. You fully understood how to engage everyone in Krishna’s service and by your vision today ISKCON is able to connect with so many youths like me.

They are taking up Krishan consciousness because of its sublime philosophy and beautiful engagement that your movement offers

Kindly bless me so that I can continue my journey on this path till my last breath. I just wish to serve you and your representatives sincerely without committing any offence.

Dear Prabhupada,
Please accept my humble obeisances to your lotus feet. I am so small and ignorant that I can’t find word to express my gratitude and love to you. My journey to Krishna consciousness started by taking part in a quize competition on your life story in Kolkata Rath Yatra festival… On that moment you gave me so much mercy that, being so much fallen still I am in Krishna consciousness. As I was not progressing, you sent your dear son HH Bhakti Chari Swami Gurumaharaj, so that I can understand what is the purpose of this human life. By your mercy, I became a human… trying to catch the dust of your lotus feet. I know you r soo kind that you will always bestow mercy to me and my family and soon will get Krishna prem through your all deciples. Please keep blessing on me, so that I can protect myself from maya.

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obeisances at your lotus feet. Thank you for coming into my life and sending me the association of devotees wherever I have been travelling.

You have provided us a very joyous lifestyle –Association of devotees, Sankirtan, Morning Program, Prasadam, Yatra, Various Festivals, Book distribution etc which makes our life so blissful. I had no knowledge about Krishna Consciousness and was simply doing various religious activities without experiencing any bliss that we find in Krishna Consciousness.

It’s only because of your efforts, Iskcon has become so popular today that I see devotees in each and every town / city wherever I have travelled.

Prabhupada, I sincerely admit that I’m not capable of serving you in any way. I am still struggling with my mind/ sadhana and it’s only by your mercy that I can use this human life to please you & move closer to Krishna.

Please help me to become qualified to take shelter at your lotus feet & serve you in every possible way.

My humble pranams to the lotus feet of Sri Abhay Charanaravinda Bhaktivedanta Swami – Srila Prabhupādacharya

Guru is the most important person in our life because Guru is the one who takes us from darkness to light. Guru is our good guide, teacher and also a good friend. We all need a guru in life, because guru only shows us the right path. The Guru tells us about the weaknesses we have and corrects them. He teaches us how to live and what is right and wrong for us.

Dear Gurudev, you showed me the path on which you have walked. Whatever you say, you say from your own experience and personally I am indebted to your struggle for unfolding the Path of Krishna Consciousness to the wandering souls and elevate 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 the spirituality to the thirsty souls.

Life is full of opposite values, and they pull you in different directions. When the complications in life become too much, the poor mind is unable to handle it, and it just breaks down. That is when it needs support. And for that, the Guru is available. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for evincing interest and curiosity in spiritual matters and to read many philosophical books and holy scriptures. You have guided me to minimize the mistakes and dangers on the path of spirituality and helping me to progress in the right direction.

Offering by Dinesvara Sacisuta Das & Family

Dear Srila Prabhupada, please accept our humble respectful obeisance’s, All glories unto you,

I Dinesvara Sacisuta Das, a most insignificant servant of yours feel very fortunate to be part of this ISKCON family and this year I got initiated from HH Jayapataka Swami Maharaj.

You are still living among us through your books, lectures and instructions. Your books, lectures and instructions help me to progress in Krishna Consciousness.

Please provide me at least a little bit of the strength and courage that you had in following the instructions of your Spiritual Master and likewise I would like to help my Guru Maharaj in abiding by his instructions.

I’m placing all my prayers at your lotus feet and kindly accept it.

I Supriya Kalavati Devi Dasi wanted to tell you that my consciousness & progress in bhakti is increasing with time because of your mercy of giving your most intimate & purified disciple as my guru HH. Jayapataka swami maharaja. I am able to constantly get the chanting of the Hare Krishna Maha mantra without any stoppage in my mouth.

My focus while chanting is getting better as days pass by in KC. My devotional services as Sankirtan, hosting, glorifying devotees, feeling of service to anyone who is connected to ISKCON is becoming more intense. My energy levels as gifted by you & your devotees are keeping well in bhakti. My uninterestedness in material life is growing every day. But for all this I have no credits or qualification to possess, it’s all your blind mercy on me. I cannot even pay you back to you in any way. It’s absolutely impossible. This unworthy instrument(a litter) on the street is put into best use by yourself. And you know very well that I am useless. But just to give me the satisfaction of being used in service to the society in Krishna consciousness, you are putting extra efforts to use me in the way you want. So even if I want to give something in return to you, you are fulfilling my desire. So again I am only taking service from you.

So all that I desire is to keep serving to fulfil your mission. The moment any service comes, though it’s out of my capacity to do, I prefer to take up just thinking of your struggle to make me Krishna conscious.

Want to mention some realisations from Janmashtami 2022. Recently we were doing Sankirtan in appts for promotion of Janmashtami . Not many but few would come n participate n stay till the end of the programme. After everything we devotees would also have prasad n start to our homes wrapping up all the accessories. And we were some 10 + volunteers ageing between 30-40 doing this promotion service of appt Sankirtan. And we would get tired when the programme is completed. At that time another devotee asked me that we are doing a great job isn’t it? That time I laughed n replied that we so many devotees of young age doing this small programme with so much of help n feeling a sort of success!!!! Just imagine Srila Prabhupada doing programmes in the west in the early stages of ISKCON even for small crowd all by himself at the age of 70 without any proper facility too.

• Even a small spiritual programme involves – promotion, cooking, getting ingredients for cooking, Hall arrangements with spreading of mats, setting up mics, altar arrangements, kirtan, giving class, arrangements of Arati paraphernalia, then showing or doing Arati, prasad distribution arrangements which involves ,getting prasad from one place to another, serving, Cleaning of the places & again talking to the guests before their start to their places after the ISKCON programme, cleaning of the utensils and much more miscellaneous jobs. And all these were handled by just one person!!!😓😰😥We both were flabbergasted at the thought and went speechless. What service of ours can please you Srila Prabhupada?? Is it possible in any way to surprise you with our devotional activities. Its simply your mercy that you get pleased with the little that we are again doing by your empowerment. We cannot measure your compassion, mercy, tolerance, patience, perseverance, determination, intelligence, courage, humility, servitude etc & your devotion at all. Such an unlimited measuring tape this material world doesn’t have. All that i can do is just think of ISKCON as my home n serve the community as my family and think of KC festivals to be our house festival and do it. That’s all.

• Also one more realization is , I see that all the Janmashtami services & activities came out to be best or done by you or your disciples only using us. Then what we do is always getting only panic, anxiety, stress and tiredness. Which actually you all are supposed to have for getting the job done through us. It’s very unfortunate that we are so unqualified. & we are ever grateful for your mercy.

• Also many times since childhood I have thought as to why I was not associated with you directly? Why was I not serving the mission under you as your other direct disciples? But the fact is that I can never compete with you or your direct servants of your dedication and sacrifices which I understood after this Janmashtami and also by reading the book “The JUHU story”. I am very sorry for having such a thought to serve you directly. How can a blade of dry grass on the road compare to Kalpavriksha in serving the Lord. I am not even qualified to serve any neophyte and what to speak of serving you directly. My humble obeisance’s.

Please keep me always in your service for nothing is pleasure giving than KC. I have to mention my thanks to you Srila Prabhupada though I cannot thank you at all.

My most dear Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obeisances at your lotus feet.

All Glories to you.

i was a lost kid and yet not looking for any directions, you have mercifully showed me the right path. If you wouldn’t have picked me i would remain lost forever in this merciless material ocean. My world has changed to a beautiful one, only and only by your causeless mercy and i don’t know how can i ever repay the shelter and protection given by you to me.

Today i have got such a wonderful devotee association because of your mercy and i sincerely pray that i never take any of these things – either spiritual or material things provided for granted. i have yearned a long time to have devotee association and for temple visits, now that you have facilitated it for me – i want to be extremely grateful and do every single service with utmost sincerity to please you, Lord Krishna and Radha Rani.

Please bless me to chant and hear Holy Names of Krishna clearly in a mood of service, chant the Pranam mantras and various other prayers/kirthans very mindfully by recalling and assimilate the meanings and sincerely serve the Lordships and Vaishnava’s to the best of my ability.

I am not qualified for doing any Krishna Conscious activity, only by your blessings and empowerment i will be able to do my bit, hence i beg and pray to you to empower me to serve your mission under your pure devotees.

Thank you very much for everything i have received by your kind mercy.

Your servant,

My dear Srila Prabhupada:

Nama om vishnu-padaya krishna-preshthaya bhu-tale srimate bhaktivedanta swamin iti namine
namaste saraswati deve gaura-vani-pracharine nirvishesha-shunyavadi pashchatya-desha-tarine

My dear spiritual master Srila Prabhupada, please accept my humble obsceneness to your lotus feet on day of Vyas puja.

I am fallen soul who has no ability to glorify you due to my anarthas but this vyas puja I would like to offer my feelings to you. I just cannot imagine my life without the ISKCON the authentic spiritual organisation which you have established in this kali yuga. The pain which you have taken to established the Krishna conciseness in the world is can not measure . My respectful obsceneness & prayers to your mother & father who has strong desire to have Krishna devotees as there son. It is the blessings & prayers of all our acharyas & Goswamis which came true that Srila Prabhupada came in to this world to teach & preach the Krishna conciseness in this world.

It is because of my dear Srila Prabhupada I can read & understand books like the the science of the self realization, the nectar of the devotion, the nector of the instructions, Bhagawat geeta, Shrimad Bhagawatam etc. The pain which you have taken to give this wonderful books to all of us that I can not imagine. At the age of 70 you travel to west & established ISKCON is just unimaginable. The way you struggle to established ISKCON, you are the great example to all human being those who are struggle to go back to god head.

I was aimlessly wandering in this world trying to look for pleasure. Some told me that the only way to be happy in this world is to become materially successful. “If you have power and position and possessions, then you will become the happiest person in the world.”

But during the course my journey I found that happiness eludes me. When I looked at the life of so-called materially successful people, I found that they too are miserable. Although they might not be aware of it. And the one thought which always haunted me was that even if I become the richest person on the planet earth, even if I become the most powerful person on this planet earth but it won’t last for long. Any day without any prior information death will come knocking at my door and will take me away.

When I read your books, I found that it is filled with pearls of wisdom. For the first time ever in my life, I found that your books, your lectures have all the answers to all my questions. The answers were convincing, filled with logic.

The more I read your books, more I heard your lectures, more I read about you my love for you kept on increasing.

This flickering material world was frustrating me, burning me, torturing me. I did not know what to do.

But you came in my life like a monsoon rain. You cleared all my doubts.

I do not want to die because as a soul I am eternal. So, I want to live eternally.

Dear Srila Prabhupada, I am eternally grateful to you for all you have given to me. I am not qualified enough to express it in proper words. Or I think there are not enough words which can ever glorify you.

Today the whole world especially the devotees are celebrating your Vyasa Puja. On this most auspicious day, I just want to say “Thank You” for everything. And I beg you to continue guiding me forever.

Your eternal insignificant servant,

Yogesh / Ashvini / Keshvi Patil

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

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

It is very difficult for a Neophyte devotee like me to Glorify you Prabhupad.It has been almost 8years I have been connected to Iskcon and only in the recent past I am feeling so fortunate to be connected with you.

In the recent years I have been consistently reading your books and listening to your lectures along with my wife and each words you have written adds so much value for my life ,I am really trying to understand the real purpose of my valuable life as a human being.

I was diving deep in to material desires and trying very hard to fulfill those desires but your transcendental books have come to me as saviour and saved me.

You have so meticulously explained who God is and why we should render service to the lord and how by perfection of Devotional service we can attain our real svarupa.

Every time I read your book I get so much nourishment,I pray on to your Lotus feet that I always be in constant association of your Transcendental books.

I pray at your lotus feet that pls help me to be your Meager servant and help my Gurumaharaj in the mission to fullfill your instructions.

nama om vishnu-padaya krishna-preshthaya bhu-tale
srimate bhaktivedanta-svamin iti namine
namas te saraswate deve gaura-vani-pracarine

Please except my humble obeisances my dear grand father Srila Prabhupada.

Krishna says in sb 1.3.43
kṛṣṇe sva-dhāmopagate
dharma-jñānādibhiḥ saha
kalau naṣṭa-dṛśām eṣa
purāṇārko ’dhunoditaḥ
This Bhāgavata Purāṇa is as brilliant as the sun, and it has arisen just after the departure of Lord Kṛṣṇa to His own abode, accompanied by religion, knowledge, etc. Persons who have lost their vision due to the dense darkness of ignorance in the Age of Kali shall get light from this Purāṇa.

But We are living entities bhadda jivas contaminated with 6 anarthas .with our Tiny material intelligent how can We understand this Purana. Your comes as representative of krishna your given clear understanding of sastras through your lectures and books simply by reading your books and hearing your lectures your shaking us, waking us Prabhupada,
If you couldn’t come what will happen to us,
What will happen to us.

No one knows what purpose of human life is. People are simply spending time for two things 1 maintaing the body, and acquiring the necessities of the body that’s all.

Śrī Narottama dāsa Ṭhākura has sung, karma-kāṇḍa, jñāna-kāṇḍa, kevala viṣera bhāṇḍa: “The path of karma-kāṇḍa (fruitive activities) and the path of jñāna-kāṇḍa (speculation) are just like strong pots of poison. Because it cannot be release from the bondage of birth and death.

Srila Prabhupada, if you couldn’t come what will happen to us by taking birth as a human being but if i behave like a cats and dogs, next life i become cat or dog if do not take krishna consciousness.
You’re come to shake us wake up from the ignorance of material existence,
Your give the names of Krishna by your mercy We are able to chant the Hare Kṛṣṇa maha mantra, your the saver of this world Prabhupada.
Your the saviour.
Thank you very much.

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obeisances at your lotus feet. 🙏🙇‍♀️

All glories to your divine self.

Every year brings to me deeper appreciation of your unparalleled contributions to enriching my life and the lives of millions all over the world.I was aimlessly wandering in this world trying to look for pleasure. Associating with ISKCON and devotees has brought in a sense of purpose in my life. I don’t have words to express my gratitude to you. Your teachings have brought so much auspiciousness in my life. It’s all your mercy Srila Prabhupada that this year I got connected to the Parampara. All glories to you and to Srila Gurumaharaj. I am so fallen and not worthy of it.I am grateful to all my seniors for their continues guidance. I am struggling to put lot of your teachings in my personal life. I want to improve and progress in bhakti. I am still struggling in my sadhana. I want to read and study your books. The morning program given by you is so important still i am unable to follow it diligently. Srila Prabhupada it’s your mercy that my family is also trying to follow Krishna conciousness. I wish my kids to become nice devotees and help in spreading this movement. It is possible only with your mercy.

You have put lot of hardship for this movement, please bless us that with our insignificant efforts we touch more and more people with your teachings. Your books, lectures, your organization is the biggest asset to the society. I sincerely pray that more and more people in this world realize and accept your valuable teachings in their lives.

I beg for the forgiveness for the offences that I am doing everyday knowingly and unknowingly.

On this auspicious day of your Vyasa-puja, please bless me, my family and all members of ISKCON that we remain engaged in your services always. Please shower your mercy so that I get some taste in holy name. Please bless me that I can follow all the instructions coming through parampara.

Thank you Srila Prabhupada for making my life, I will try my best to follow your teachings.

Dear Srila Prabhupada,

We consider ourselves extremely privileged to be a part of Srila Prabhupada’s mission. Our life has been filled with happiness since the day we have connected with the mission of Srila Prabhupada.Without the kindness of Krishna and Prabhupada, this would not have been possible.

Since joining the community of Krishna devotees, we are enjoying a richer quality of life and feel blessed.

We ask Prabhupada’s blessings in order for him to support us in our spiritual service. It is difficult to break free from the confines of this world.

Hari Bol!

Offering by Saraswathi Panigrahi

Dear Gurudev,

What can we give back to you? You have given us the essence of life. I’m an ignorant fallen conditioned soul filled with all anarthas. Though your teachings taught us how to live in the living we make. I would have never understood the difference between doing a ritualistic puja and Bhakti(complete surrender). I could have never understood the difference between loving Krishna vs getting materialistic wishes fulfilled by Krishna.

If you hadn’t found ISKON we would have never understood the relevance of the scriptures and significance of it in day to day life though born in a spiritual land like India. You have literally saved us from rotting in hell through your books.

It’s been more than 50yrs the movement has been established and it’s going with the same enthusiasm and energy that you have built with.

Can we imagine a life without Srila Prabhupada?
We can never understand what treasure Prabhupada has given us.

We feel so disconnected when we miss an occasion or devotee association at ISKCON. Imagine how Prabhupada was the only Vaishnava warrior on the western land missing all these occasions from Mayapur and Vrindavan, leaving his comfort behind and only to spread Krishna Prema to western world he took up this mission at 70 age. What excuse do we have?

Gurudev, we will always be in debt to you 🙏🏻🙏🏻

Dear Srila Prabhupada,
All glories to you !
Please accept my humble obeisances unto your lotus feet !!
Dear Prabhupad, You have appeared in this material world to deliver the message of Lord CHAITANYA and spread KRISHNA consciousness throughout the world.
As per the order of your spiritual master, at a very elderly age, you have taken the pain of travelling all the continents of the world to deliver the fallen souls like me. As JAGADGURU, with your causeless mercy, you have enlightened this world by distributing the HARE KRISHNA Maha Mantra to one and all without any reservations of social status, colour, creed, gender and origin. This is the greatest medicine for oneself who is struggling with the material diseases born out of desire, anger, greed, arrogance, delusion and Envy. By your own example, you have shown the path, how a human being should lead one’s life in this material world and how to achieve the highest perfection in spiritual service.

You have bestowed us the essence of Vedic literature in an easy form and can be understood even by a layman person like me. While doing so, you have substantiated the fact that KRISHNA is the supreme personality of godhead and serving HIM and HIS devotees is the ultimate goal of one’s life. You have established so many temples, farm communities across the world, which are the platforms for the devotees to live together in peace and harmony and to lead a perfect KRISHNA consciousness life.
Again it is due to your causeless mercy, one can try to understand you and gets the association of your disciples.
Dear Prabhupad, to glorify your unlimited and causeless mercy, would always remain as a mere attempt !
