The Most Blessed Event; Sri Vyasa-puja

His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada’s Appearance Day Homage

by Vyasasan das

Dear Srila Prabhupada

On this most blessed and auspicious day, the celebration of your appearance; Sri Vyasa-puja, please accept my most humble obeisance’s at your divine lotus feet, and kindly forgive my offences.

On my 21st birthday I shaved my head, put on tilak and a dhoti for the first time.  It was the day I decided to become a devotee with the hope of someday becoming your disciple.  On the very first day of my adult life I surrendered to your instructions, following the four regulative principles and trying to chant 16 rounds of japa a day, with the hopes of someday becoming a worthy disciple.  And in spite of my shortcomings, within a year, you initiated me and gave me the name Vyasasan das.

The Vyasasana is the sacred seat of Srila Vyasadeva, who is the original Spiritual Master because he compiled and disseminated the Vedic knowledge, and you are the bona-fide representative of Srila Vyasadeva.  Therefore according to the Vedic system, on the birthday of the spiritual master the disciples and followers offer homage to you, by writting and speaking about your glories.  This is the meaning of Vyasa Puja.
