"Actually there is no difference between hearing directly from Krishna and hearing directly from Krishna via a bona fide spiritual master like Vyasa. The spiritual master is the representative of Vyasadeva also. Therefore, according to the Vedic system, on the birthday of the spiritual master the disciples conduct the ceremony called Vyasa-puja."
- Srila Prabhupada, Bhagavad-gita As It Is, 18.75, Purport
nama om vishnu-padaya krishna-presthaya bhu-tale
srimate hridayanada-goswamin iti namine
I offer my respectful obeisances unto His Holiness Hridayananda dasa Goswami, who is very dear to Lord Krishna, having taken shelter at His lotus feet.
I offer my respectful obeisances to my spiritual teacher who transcendental intelligence is like a swan. With your transcendental and ecstatic intelligence, you give pleasure to Srila Prabhupada and destroy all corrupt philosophies.
