Falling down straight like a rod, I offer my repeated obeisances at the lotus feet of His Divine Grace Om Visnupada Paramahamsa Parivrajakacarya 108 A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
Growing up and then growing old in Krishna consciousness are both sublime, eternally beneficial experiences, and they are simply due to his causeless mercy. As he wrote of his spiritual master (and how much more we could say of Srila Prabhupada), “If you had not come, who would have told / the message of Krishna, forceful and bold? This gives us a life anew and fresh…miracle done, Your Divine Grace.”
How refreshing and enlivening it is to the soul to be busy, busy, busy in your service, Srila Prabhupada, without a moment left over for meaningless thoughts. As we grow in Krishna consciousness, we can only become more and more amazed by your character, your teaching, your practical counsel, for they are all constituted of pure and limitless Krishna consciousness. To render you eternal devotional service, you who are the purest servant of Krishna, is the least we can do. Thank you Srila Prabhupada.
Trying to serve your servants,
Hridayananda Dasa Goswami
