nama om visnu-padaya krsna-presthaya bhutale
srimate bhaktivedant-svaminn iti namine
namas te sarasvate deve gaura-vani-pracarine
Dear Srila Prabhupada,
It is said that “soft water wears away the stone.” Your unceasing mercy, which springs spontaneously from your all-compassionate nature, gradually wears away the stone-like covering of our heart. With your pure, peerless Krishna consciousness you reveal the supreme reality of Krishna to all. With your unalloyed, unflagging determination to serve Lord Caitanya’s mission, you ever remind us of, and inspire us to perform, our real duty in life.
Maturing and growing wiser in Krishna consciousness means to appreciate more and more your inestimable glories. You are the perfect teacher and friend, and on your Vyasa-puja day we beg to be useful in your mission.
Hridayananda das Goswami
