Yesterday we celebrated Vyasa-Puja at New Vrindaban. The Vyasasana there was freshly re-upholstered and decorated, thanks to the efforts of Lokadrsti devi and Malati devi (who provided the fabric.) It was a very nice day with a good kirtan, dancing and feasting, all centered around Srila Prabhupada!

The Essence of Krishna Consciousness:

“Chant, dance, take prasadam, live very happily, and look very brilliant, and next life go to home, back to Godhead.” (Srila Prabhupada lecture, August 3, 1975)

Dear Srila Prabhupada

 
Please accept my most humble obeisances, and kindly forgive my offences. On this most blessed event; Sri Vyasa-Puja, the appearance day of my beloved spiritual master, I am filled with a sense of gratitude and wonder. I cannot even imagine where my life would be today, if you had not appeared and blessed us all with your divine benediction.

“On this auspicious day I have come with this offering just to worship you, remembering your lotus feet.”

The fact that you have always resided in my heart, and have been my most constant friend and ever well-wisher, even without your physical presence, proves our eternal relationship with you. So many friends and family have come and gone, but you Srila Prabhupada, have remained in my life as the one constant I could always turn to.

You are present in your vani; your books and instructions. You are present still in your pictures and murti’s. You live in the hearts of your sincere devotees. You have touched us all so deeply; we cannot help but remember you. Srila Prabhupa, I am most unworthy to have received your mercy, and because of knowing my insignificance, it has caused me to be even more grateful and appreciative of your blessings.
 
In the Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, there is one verse I would like to use to describe my mood and feelings:
 
“Indeed, I am just like a dwarf who wants to capture the moon. Although I am completely unfit, a desire to receive Your mercy is awakening within my mind.”

This is my position, I am completely unworthy, and most fallen, therefore by showing me your mercy, your mercy is most successful. For you are patita-pavana, the savior of the fallen souls, and who is more fallen than me? I have no good qualities; born of low birth, without good intelligence, without beauty, or wealth, I am a fallen soul, desiring only your causeless mercy to be bestowed upon me.

 
Begging to remain forever in Your Divine Service
