VYASA PUJA OFFERING 2017

om ajñana-timirandhasya jñanañjana-salakaya
caksur unmilitam yena tasmai sri-gurave namah

I offer my respectful obeisances to my spiritual master [His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada], who opened my eyes blinded by the darkness of ignorance, with the torch of knowledge.

Dear Srila Prabhupada:
Please accept this humble offering on the day of your glorious transcendental appearance. Every day I remember you, every year I write to you and every time I do it it seems more real than you see me, that you know what I think and that you watch what I do. Writing to you, on the one hand is gratifying and on the other quite difficult for me. With great emotion I will tell you something about my life as a son would tell his father.
I am yours, I live for you. Through the ears I drink daily the mercy that you pour through your classes. I understand that sensory enjoyment weakens, and that the spiritual life is a science in which there is no room for fickleness, or whims. I understand that negligence pushes back and inaccuracies affect soul consciousness. I check daily that spiritual knowledge opens the doors of perception, that mental austerity keeps them open, that total surrender to your person makes unconditional love flourish in my heart, and that there is no greater force than true love . All this I understand thanks to you.
As far as I can, I try to convey your wise and effective teachings to all that I can, beginning with my mind. I tell people that just as we do not neglect to feed the body, we must not neglect to feed the soul with the innumerable means fully available in the Movement for Krishna Consciousness that you organized worldwide, and that year after year expands more and more.
Analyzing the story of my life, you could say that I was born to meet you and be a better person. However, when I analyze my service, I find it overshadowed by improprieties and defects, and I feel that I do not have enough merit to obtain your approval.
I feel that time is running out, that I have to bid farewell to life in this world, and perhaps that is why I hold to write with a youthful spirit that contrasts with my age. I've been so fond of writing that I've made it my way of living.
I try to understand what Krishna wants from me these days and I cannot detect signs. Being a good devotee of Krishna requires strength of will, and such strength comes from purity in action. By meditating on your generous mercy I can be successful in the spiritual life. I walk alone for the world, but thanks to you I feel more than ever the presence of the Lord in my heart. In my daily walk, I leave behind neurosis, apprehensions and memories with expired date that do not agree with my present reality.
Shielded by Krishna consciousness, no incidence of the outside world affects me. My daily personal experiences -increasingly more in tune with your transcendental teachings- lessen my anxiety, soften my character and speed up my spiritual understanding.
Thank you Srila Prabhupada, you are my father, friend, teacher, master and savior. Even though I may be the most degraded and incompetent of your children, I trust that through your inconceivable mercy I may join you in your glorious mission to expand Krishna consciousness throughout the universe.
With immense gratitude and affection,
Sri Padambuja dasa
