Dear Srila Prabhupada,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Your Divine Grace.
Once again I have the opportunity to thank you for your causeless mercy on this fallen soul.
Your mercy is unlimited and by some good fortune I have been able to take advantage of a small portion enabling me to continue as a member of your Krishna conscious movement.
In the pastimes of Lord Krishna we hear how He sometimes arranges for the glorification of His devotees.For example when Bhisma was leaving the world he was able to pacify the mind of Yudhisthira Maharaja who was lamenting over the deaths of the countless kshatriyas killed on the battlefield of kurukshetra. Lord Krishna had been present at that time but He wanted Bhisma to get the credit Another example in the battle of Kurukshetra showed His desire that Arjuna be the hero although He could have won the battle Himself.

I am reminded how you also liked to see your disciples honoured. Although you could have done everything yourself you arranged for your disciples to take the credit. When your disciple cultivated tualsi plants you praised her in your Bhativedanta purport of Srimad Bhagavatam,4,8,55 saying, We are very much obliged ,therefore,to our disciple srimati Govinda dasi because she has taken much care to grow tulasi plants from seeds and she has been successful by the grace of Krishna. Now tulasi plants are growing in almost every center of our movement.
Then again in a lecture on s. bhag. 6,1,49, at New Orleans on Aug. 1, 1975 you said, We must be very much thankful to our Govinda dasi. She first of all cultivated the tulasi plant in Hawaiiand now the tulasi plants are distributed so she has done a great service. I think
I gave her the seeds and she has very nicely done it. Now everywhere we see tulasi plants. It is very pleasing.

When a devotee was successful in book distribution and inspired many devotees to take this service seriously, you wrote to him, at that time he was known asTripurari dasa, from Bombay on 12th Nov. 1974, saying you are the incarnation of book distribution. Another disciple, Madhudvisa Prabhu led ecstatic kirtans and you showed your appreciation of his service by describing him as the emperor of samkirtana. You gave the credit for introducing the singing of bhajans to Acyutananda Swami and said that you introduced the chanting of the maha mantra and he has introduced the singing of bhajans. You also loved to sing the vaisnava songs but you gave him the credit.


In temples around the world every morning the deities are greeted by the singing of the Govinda prayers sung by your disciple Yamuna devi dasi. You could have had your own recording played but you like to give credit to your devotees.
Although you are the founder acharya of Iskcon and the ultimate authority on all issues you handed over the management of the society to the GBC and described yourself as a member of Iskcon.
It is the nature of a great leader that he brings others up along with him. He does not take all the credit for himself but he is willing and eager to appreciate those around him. You have given us a great treasure of wisdom and culture in the message of Krishna consciousness.
One quality that I most appreciate is your ability to recognise the service and efforts of others. By your example we can see the meaning of amanina mana dena, offering all respects to others and not being anxious to be respected ourselves. I can only hope that one day in the coming crores of births I may take that I can come to understand the true meaning of this.


I have been fortunate to witness your transcendental exchanges with your disciples. I hope that one day I may be worthy to call myself your disciple.

Praying to remain forever in the dust of your lotus feet,
i remain an insignificant beggar, tridandi bikshu Bhakti Vigna Vinasha Narasimha.
