Offering to Srila Prabhupada

Offering to Srila Prabhupada
By; Gangamayee devi dasi
1973

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

“I offer my respectful obeisances unto my Spiritual Master who has opened my eyes, blinded by the darkness of ignorance, with the torchlight of knowledge.”

No moment I’ve lived in nor emotion I’ve shared ever found any real meaning before I learnt of the existence of your most blessed and treasured Movement. No laughter I’d ever uttered, nor tears I’d ever shed could have so completely captured my very soul than those I’d experienced by just dancing, singing, and chanting before the Deities in the temple.

From a heart so bound up with materialistic yearnings, I’ve now learnt how to free myself from all my embittered entanglements and immerse myself instead within the eternal beauty which I’ve found pervades my very being.

But for you Srila Prabhupada, I would have fallen into the deepest well of my false ego and would have remained blinded forever from all the most wonderful ecstatic feelings  that I have now learnt to experience. There are no words that would befit my lips, nor deeds fine that I could impart that would ever express my eternal gratitude for your having saved me from this ocean of material existence.

By your mercy Lord Krishna may I never again fall, but continue to rise ever upward pursuing the pathways to the Spiritual Planets.

Gangamayee devi dasi

Note: Gangamayee prabhu left our world six years ago on Srila Sanatana Goswami’s disappearance day, Vyasa Purnima. She chanted loudly for seven and a half hours, and left this world with the Lord’s Holy Name on her tongue. The Supreme decoration for a valiant soul! All Glories to Srila Prabhupada’s mercy and to his loving daughters and sons. — Submitted by Annada devi dasi

    All Glories to Srila Prabhupad.

    Please accept our humble obeisences on the dust of your divine lotus feet.

    Prabhupad i have no qualification to glorify you; still for the remebernce of your Dissappreance day i would like to quote the below verse for your glorification.

    The verse from SB 8:3:7

    didṛkṣavo yasya padaḿ sumańgalaḿ

    vimukta-sańgā munayaḥ susādhavaḥ

    caranty aloka-vratam avraṇaḿ vane

    bhūtātma-bhūtāḥ suhṛdaḥ sa me gatiḥ

    Making no distinction between one nation and another or one community and another, you preach Kṛṣṇa consciousness, the teachings of Bhagavad-gītā, everywhere. Thus you are competent to see the lotus feet of the Lord. As indicated by the word vimukta-sańga, you have nothing to do with material conditions. One must take shelter at the lotus feet of yours in order to see the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

    Prabhu pad we really miss you, all around so many bad activities happening and with your mercy we are still surviving. When you are going to take your next birth here in this material world to deliver the fallen souls like us through your disciples or your followers.

    YOUR ARE THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THE WORD “PARAMAHAMSA”

    Prabhu Pad please shower your mercy to us to have our sadana done properly and understand Srimad Bhagavatam nicely so that my behaviour become good to others.

    Yours humble servant & grand Son
    Namasmaran Krsna das
