My dear spiritual master, Your Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada, 
  Please accept my prostrated obeisances. All glories to you & your fully empowered service to your spiritual master His Divine Grace Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Goswami Srila Prabhupada. By his order you came to the sinful land of the United States of America & preached the messaga of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Only because of your causeless mercy in delivering the process of devotional service to Sri Sri Radha Krsna thru the chanting of Hare Krsna  Hare Krsna   Krsna Krsna  Hare Hare  Hare Rama  Hare Rama  Rama Rama  Hare Hare was I caught up in the shelter of the International Society for Krsna Consciousness.
  Being the anniversary of your Appearance Day in this world it is my duty to express the gratitude & loyality I have for you. With heartfelt joy I ask you for the ability to say some small token of glorification of you, who are one of the dear most assistants of Lord Nityananda & Lord Caitanya.
  Anything I realize & say will be what youhave taught me thru your life & teachings. Your service to & glorification of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura are ideal & the cause of his blessing upon you. It is the aspiration of all your disciples to follow in your footsteps & become a servant worth noticing, one you are pleased with, & give your blessings to.
  Raghunatha das Gosvami offered his obeisances & gratitude to his guru for all the gifts he received in his life.
  nama srestham manum api saci putram atra svarupam

  radha-kundam girivaram aho radhika-madhavasam
  prato yasya prathita-krpaya sri gurum tam nato smi
  "I offer my obeisances to Sri Guru, by whose mercy I have obtained the topmost Holy Name, the divine mantra, personalities like Lord Catanya, Sri Svarupa Damodara Gosvami, Sri Rupa Goswami, & his elder brother Sri Sanatana Gosvami,  I have  also obtained residence in the holy places  Sri Mathura, Sri Vrndavan, Sri Radha Kunda, Sri Govardhan &  course, most importantly, I have obtained the desire & hope to render confidential service to Sri Sri Radha Madhava."   (Mukta Ciritra)
  Anything & everything I have of value in this life are the gifts you have given me. Your mercy truly is all I am made of. It has been many years I have tried my best to measure up to pleasing you by hearing, sharing, & practicing your teachings. I am so unqualified in my attempts to serve you & share your message. My conditioned nature consisting of the lower modes makes me a very inept disciple & devotee,but somehow or other by your overwhelming grace combined with a small desire & efforts on my part, miracles continue to increasingly happen in my life.
  It is only by your mercy that I sit here in Sri Dham Mayapur writing this offering.  Here in Lord Caitanya's spiritual abode the Holy Names easily roll off the tongue & enter the ears.  More & more a sense of the presence of Krsna is manifesting in His names.  Everything desirable in devotional service is obtained thru chanting Hare Krsna.  Beginning, middle, & the goal are all ever increasingly sweet & life giving to the devotee.
  Getting to associate with the "two brothers," His Holiness Jayapataka Swami, & so many other elevated Vaisnavas has its purifying effect. Going on Navadvipa Dham Parikrama & Gaura Mandala Parikrama has allowed me to associate with so many members of our guru varga & first & second generation associates of Lord Caitanya.  Their vani, their murtis, their places of bhajan, & their worshipable deites have made Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu  & His lila so real & has allowed my mind to embrace the incredible history & culture of Gaudiya Vaisnavism.  The practical result being I realize more & more how insignificant I am & how my true identity & purpose in life is to become the servant of the servant of the servant of the Lord.
  I daily meditate & try my best to cultivate & practice humility, tolerance, & respect for all, especially the devotees.  Taking as many opportunities to serve the devotees as I can, hoping to please them & thus you is giving my life purpose & fulfillment.
  In this service mood of insignificance & worthlessness, when you give me more & more opportunities to share Krsna consciousness with others, your words I speak have deeper effect.  I know that my life is yours & I want to increasingly use it to share thru words & example the priceless gift you're offering to me & the world, pure bhakti.
  You know me thru & thru & still despite my many shortcomings you've stayed with me, giving me your shelter & instructions, helping me to slowly, but surely realize my hope, my only desire is your service & the service of the mission of Sri Sri Gaura Nitai.  Where it will lead is certain, back to home, back to Godhead Vrndavan Dham.  When, is  up to you & the degree of my surrender, but I have full faith that if I can just stay the course you will gladly take me back after this one lifetime & hopefully use me to encourage many others to take advantage of this rare & priceless opportunity.  
  Thank you, Srila Prabhupada, again & again.  May my service be louder than my words & worthy of your pleasure.
         Your insignificant servant,  Rajendranandana das
