H.D. Goswami’s 1983 Vyasa Puja Offering to Srila Prabhupada

The greatest of all
Devotees of God,
Please hear our call
Srila Prabhupada—
Fallen and weak, we
Have no love for God,
Please hear our plea
Srila Prabhupada—
Like thunder your mighty voice
“we’re not this external form!
Human life gives us the choice
to love God, for that we’re born!”
And Krishna is God! Krishna!
Supreme Personality
Of Godhead: Krishna…Krishna!
Mere parts-sparks of Him are we!
Prabhupada! Prabhupada! Your lotus feet
Give the shelter of almighty Krishna,
With whom we have vainly tried to compete,
Entangling ourselves in Maya’s fishnet.
Save us, Prabhupada Prabhupada save me!
Free us from lust, greed, the madness of pride.
In loving service to you we are free
And come at once to the Vaikuntha side.
All glories, all glories to the greatest Prabhu!
Right-hand man of God on high, almighty Krishna—
Absorb us in your great mission, make us like you,
Prabhupada! Bring us to rest at the lotus feet of Krishna.

Hridayananda Dasa Goswami
