Dear Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obeisance at the dust of your divine lotus feet. All glories to you.

You are an ocean of mercy. Your books are the guiding principle of my life. You have protected us from so many philosophical deviations and showed the clear path of bhakti which is the only shelter for helpless conditioned souls like me.

My soul gets nourishment by reading your books. Your books have such a power that if read properly they can uncover the hard covering of material energy and expose one’s relationship with the Supreme Lord.

Just as the Lord brought all the holy rivers and tirthas in the universe to Sri Vrindavan for His parents, Nanda baba and Yashoda and other Vrajavasis, in a similar way you have brought Sri Vrindavan all over the world in the form of ISKCON temples and association of pure Vaishnavas.

Please accept my deepest gratitude for coming to this mortal planet and distributing Krishna prema. You are the most munificent empowered servant of Sri Krishna Chaitanya. You are maha maha vandanyaya by the grace of Sri Gouranga Mahaprabhu.

Your insignificant fallen servant grandson,

Hrishikesh Das, North Carolina, USA
