Dear Srila Prabhupada, please accept my most humble obeisances in the most holy dust of your divine lotus feet now and forever.

It is clear to me, now the most fortunate, before most unfortunate soul, that you came to us in the form of your merciful manifestation as Sri Guru.
What would have happened to me otherwise? I dont dare to think about the future of such a wretched person like me in a world like this we experience, now merged as it is in sin beyond comprehension.
What was the cause behind such good fortune, such grace?
The only thing I can hope to do is to bow down before you in humility and gratitude, dandavat pranam, heart rising, mind falling. Again and again. In this life or in the next, as you desire, but please do no forget me or reject me.
I depend on your compassion.


You are mercy personified
The dust from your lotus feet
Decorate the surface of the holiest of tirthas
Indeed you are yourself the topmost tirtha

Your blessed words enter like sweet purifying rivers
Into the ears and hearts of those devotees
Who are truly disgusted with sense gratification
Which burn like fire their soul and finer sentiments

Your glance is like the rising sun
Which drives away all darkness
Please engage me in menial service
Because my heart is proud

False pride is like a poison weed it entered deep in my heart
And caused me to surrender to illusion
I embraced suffering
And like a complete fool I thought I was this material body

Your instructions are like the merciful stroke
Of a sharp knife cutting the heads of our material desires
I am hesitating to come in front of you
To offer myself

I must repent again and again
For sins and offenses
So many I can not even count them
Please forgive me

My initiation was like entering
The sacred lake of immortality
But I wanted to leave that nectar
Bitten by the flies of lust greed and anger

I am no better than a tiny insect
Please protect me with your golden hand
Please close your hand around me
And transform me to a butterfly pleasing to Krishna

O Prabhupada please give this sentimental fool shelter under your lotus feet

Dear Godbrothers and Godsisters by your grace allow me to assist you in your service to Srila Prabhupada and ISKCON,the manifestation of his love and compassion.
