I offer my respectful obeisance’s unto His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who is very dear to Lord Krishna, having taken shelter at His lotus feet.

Our respectful obeisance’s are unto you, O spiritual master, servant of Sarasvatî Gosvâmî. You are kindly preaching the message of Lord Caitanyadeva and delivering the Western countries, which are filled with impersonalism and voidism.

Sri Krishna Caitanya, Prabhu Nityananda, Sri Advaita, Gadadhara, Srivas adi gaura bhakta vrinda.

All glorious to His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada my eternal Spiritual Master, thank you for coming and lifting me out of this mundane dream material bodily identity that I am now finally understanding.

The struggle has not been easy for as you know but it is your personal association and guidance that I always now relish in old age and hold tightly onto.

In 1976 I was your body guard during the day and sleeping at your door at night. I was always very alert based on this old saying '''Pray to Krishna that protecting Srila Prabhupada is only up to Lord Nrsinghadeva and Krishna, but do you duty of protecting him as if it is up to you''

One night you came to the door and asked how I was after previously sending me a strong worded letter some 7 months earlier and I said ''its often very difficult Prabhupada this youthful body is nothing but trouble for me'' you then thought for a moment and said ''NEVER leave me no matter what happens'', I started crying, it was very moving, this is why I am still here because of your wonderful love Srila Prabhupada.

Now is the time to prepare for the death of this troublesome embarrassing material bodily vessel I am in that many others, some very knowledgeable, still identity as me however, I am not this material body, I am the jiva tattva within and have had millions of these bodies, now its time once and for all to put an end to this terriblr cycle of birth and death.

ISKCON is still a very young organization only 51 years old this year; it will take some time to further mature into a strong Spiritual Movement and that will only happen as long as the basic teachings of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu get stronger and stronger.

And that basis is constant Sankirtan which is chanting of Hare Krishna on the streets of every Town, Village and City of the world and distributing magazines like BTG and Prabhupada's Books, this is where the real and only strength of ISKCON lies, this is how we were trained in the beginning as teenagers.

harinama harinama harinama eva kevalam
kalau nastyeva nastyeva nastyeva gatir anyatha

In this Age of Kali there is no other means, no other means, no other means for self-realization than chanting the holy name, chanting the holy name, chanting the holy name of Lord Hari.’

When chanted the maha-mantra is a petition to God: “O Krishna, O energy of Krishna, please engage me in Your service.”

In Kali yuga Varna and Ashrama will only work under the heading of Lord Caitanya's Sankirtan movement, the central point is sankirtan, mass sankirtan and is for EVERYONE.

Srila Prabhupada you taught me this important lesson that both applies to the very young and very old.

Srila Prabhupada - ''If you take to Kṛṣṇa consciousness, there will be so many disturbances by māyā.

Māyā will test you how far you are fixed up. She will test you. She is also agent of Kṛṣṇa.

She does not allow anyone to disturb Kṛṣṇa. Therefore she tests very rigidly whether you have taken to Kṛṣṇa consciousness to disturb Kṛṣṇa, or you are actually serious.

All glorious to Srila Prabhupada from your fallen servant
