Himali (Lucknow, India)
namah om vishnu padaya krsna preshthaya bhu tale
srimate bhaktivedanta swami iti namine
namaste saraswate deve gaura vani pracharine
nirvishesha shunya vadi pashchatya desha tarine
Respected Srila Prabhupada,
Please accept my humble obeisances at your lotus feet.
You are the most magnanimous and most merciful representative of our sweet Lord Sri Krsna. Nobody except you could have saved us from this mire of dark nescience. But we are so fallen that even with this we want to remain in our own world like hogs and dogs. Who can be more fallen than me? If you will not be merciful on me than who else can show any mercy to me.
I was living like a dead stone, you gave me life. Now with this life which is your causeless mercy on me , I want to serve you to my utmost capacity.
Kindly bless me. Though I am not qualified, I want to do something to spread the glories of your movement worldwide.
So many times I tend to become confused in my path of devotional service. Kindly dissipate all kinds of ignorance in my path by the torch of knowledge.
It is due to your immense mercy that I have an international family in this kaliyuga. Anywhere I meet devotees I feel I know them since long. I feel them closer to my heart than my own (material) family. All glories to your wonderful disciples. They are the best association in this world. Being with them it becomes so easy to remember Krsna.
Although most insignificant I take this as an opportunity to send this small piece of offering for this Vyasa Puja celebration. Kindly accept it and oblige.
Your most insignificant servant,
Trying to serve you,
Himali ( Lucknow, India)
