H.D. Goswami’s 1998 Vyasa Puja Offering to Srila Prabhupada


On the occasion of the divine appearance day of His Divine Grace Om Visnupada Paramahamsa Parivrajakacarya 108 Sri Srimad A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, let us all offer our most respectful obeisances at his lotus feet.

We purify ourselves by glorifying Srila Prabhupada. And when we induce the world to acknowledge his glories, the world will also become purified. The basis for harmonious relations among people is to give up envy and enmity toward one another. This can be done by learning to worship the bona fide acarya, who comes to this world as the intimate agent of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Sri Krishna.

The world must come to understand that Srila Prabhupada led a sinless life fully devoted to the loving service of the Lord; that he exhibited unprecedented compassion upon the fallen souls and gave his life so that they might have life; that he fearlessly and boldly presented the highest knowledge of God, the soul, and this world, based on the most sublime and holy scriptures, the Bhagavad-gita and Srimad-Bhagavatam; that he created a wonderful worldwide mission to engage all the fallen souls in practical works of devotion, for their own salvation, and so that others might also be saved; that he implored us to work together in a spirit of selfless devotional service to the Lord, Krishna.

Our perpetual duty is to spread the glories of Srila Prabhupada, for those who appreciate Srila Prabhupada can easily understand the glories of the Absolute Truth, Lord Sri Krishna, and thus they will gain an eternal life of bliss and knowledge in the highest abode of the Lord.

Falling at his lotus feet,
His servant,
Hridayananda Dasa Goswami
