The Disappearance day of His Divine Grace Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur
Jun 29, 2011 — CANADA (SUN) —

The Disappearance day of His Divine Grace Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur is observed on June 30th.
Translator’s Note: This prayer to Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur, the pioneer of Pure Devotion in the recent age, was composed within the lifetime of the author’s Guru, Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur Goswami Prabhupada. Upon reading the original Sanskrit verse, Srila (Bhaktisiddhanta) Prabhupada commented, “Now I am confident that we have one man who is qualified to uphold the standard of our Sampradaya (Divine Succession).” [English Translation by Sripad Swarupananda das.]

Prayer in Separation of Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur

“Alas, alas! O Bhaktivinode Thakur, O Supreme Guru, for twenty-two years this world has been plunged into misfortune, long grief-stricken in your intolerable separation. You are the Divine Potency of Sri Gaura, and you graciously made your advent in this earthly plane, being attracted by the living beings’ virtuous deeds performed throughout many lifetimes.”

“Since I am lowly and very wretched, it was not my luck to reach the ocean that bestows the fortune of surrender—-the Ocean of the Ecstasy of bathing in a particle of the dust of your Holy Lotus Feet. Yet due to your magnanimous nature, you gave your Grace to the whole universe, personally revealing your supereminence as the personification of the Mercy Potency of Sri Gauranga. (That is, by coming into this world, I received His Grace.)”
