H.D. Goswami’s 1999 Vyasa Puja Offering to Srila Prabhupada

nama om visnu-padaya Krishna-presthaya bhu-tale
Srimate bhaktivedanta-sväminn iti namine
namas te sarasvate deve gaura-vani-pracarine 

Srila Prabhupada,

In the stormy sea of this world, your lotus feet are the safe and tranquil harbor. In the quicksand of all doubting all, your faith in us is the spiritual engine of our progress. In an age of sanctimony, your sacred leadership is the gold standard of purity. In the pain of illusion, the balm of your image, voice, example, and order bring back reality.

Kindly keep me on your caravan as it boldly wends through the gloom of Kali and crosses the risky river bordering the worlds, until at last its blessed passengers alight in perfect peace at the lotus feet of Sri Sri Radha and Krishna.

Your hopeful servant,
Hridayananda das Goswami
