My Dear Srila
Om Ajnana-timirandhasya Jnananjana-salakaya
Caksur Unmilitam Yena Tasmai Sri-gurave Namah
I offer my respectful obeisances unto my spiritual master, who has opened my eyes, which were blinded by the darkness of ignorance, with the torchlight of knowledge.
Nama Om Visnu-padaya Krishna-presthaya Bhu-tale
Srimate Sankarshan Das Adhikariti Namine
I offer my respectful obeisances unto His Divine Grace Sankarshan Das
Adhikari, who is very dear to Lord Sri Krishna, having taken shelter of
His lotus feet.
Srila Gurudeva, I helplessly pray that you kindly shower your mercy upon me to move forward in the direction that you desire for us, to practice Krishna consciousness so that I can perfect my life. I humbly pray to Your Divine Graceto bless me.
The secret of success in spiritual advancement is satisfaction of the self-realized spiritual master. Without your satisfaction, nobody can ultimately make any progress. After hearing of your glories, whoever fails to offer you proper honor, loses whatever spiritual potency he may have. On the other hand those who consider your spiritual greatness and accordingly offer respect will certainly advance in Krishna Consciousness.
Now, by your grace, I'm begging you to always use me in your service in any way you desire -- in success or failure, honor or dishonor, happiness or distress; let me never leave your lotus feet, because you are my only shelter and refuge.
Your Humble Servant

my humble offering to my Guru's lotus feet
Hare Krishna Prabhu ji,
On behalf of Sriman George and everyone else of my kinship devotees, I want to sincerely wish a very happy birthday. From The Beatles' song that Paul so lovingly wrote and I still thank him today for writing "Michelle" since I was named after it but Michele, in talking about "Birthday", you say it's your birthday, it's everyone's birthday,too. In your life, you've loved God more and
life, too as sure I have and still do love. Happy Birthday with many warm and best wishes!
Dear Guru Maharaja,
I with my innermost feeling express gratitude to whatever you are doing , May Krishna give you the strength and wisdom . let the lord have his mercy on you .
It is with
pleasure to greet on the appearance day of respectful guruji.
Your words are a life raft
I'd like to wish a very happy appearance day/birthday to the spiritual master, Sankarshan Das Adhikari, the only one I've ever really had a chance to communicate with. I'm sorry for not making a donation so far to help out with his selfless and tireless work, I hope to do so at some point. As a musician with expensive equipment to pay for its a bit difficult right now.
May Lord Krishna and Radha Rani bless you with long life and continued good health in the service of the Lord. Many, many happy birth day greetings.
16 th October is a great day , The day of appearance of Sriman Sankarshan
Das Adhikari. Birthday of a living spiritual master/ Guru, who is living in the Bhakti of the Lord Sree
Krishna as also in service of the ignorant humans.
Dear Punya Gurudeva,
The greatest jnana
is atma jnana and when it is given without an expectation we
cannot payback the debt. It is the mercy of Lord Krishna
that we have a got a guru like him, words are not enough to
express our gratitude.
My dear Gurudeva,
Greetings!.....Your ministry has immeasurably helped me in personal journey.
Thank you for your e-presence......
your catholic devotee, Jim
Thank you for your prompt reply, also would like to wish you a very happy birthday, and as a humble student would only like to promise you that will really strive hard to become Krishna Conscious and make others conscious too and at the end of the day become a good human being.
thanks and regards
Dear Srila Gurudeva,
Thank you my only beloved teacher for shedding light that these blind eyes may see. Your kindness is such a wonderful blessing. May Krishna ever bless you. You are a permanent resident in my prayers.
Your faithful, stumbling student,

Dearmost Guru ji,
I and my family sincerely pray to the Universal lord Sri Jagannatha
(Sri Krishna) on the occasion of your birth day, to shower His uninterrupted
blessing on you our bona fide true knowledge giver YOU, all health & devotional strength to keep on freely distributing
sincerely, with all its true strength, answering the doubts of the true knowledge seekers and uplifting all fallen souls like me .Its your mail (the best and the latest media E-MAIL), which drags us back to Krishna consciousness or other wise we would have wasted our time on unwanted
things. Your service cannot be measured and as we know you are not doing to get anybody's praise as you are
truly beyond all this .
Accept my humble obeisances on your appearance day.
I am a regular reader of your thought of the day. I am a fallen soul. You are great and self realized soul. I don't know how to appreciate you on your appearance day. Only I pray to the Supreme Lord Krishna through my Gurudeva for your long life and the excellent job you are doing for spreading Krishna consciousness all over the world.
His Grace Sri
Sankarshan Das Adhikariji,
On this great day I would like to offer a few words of thanks to His Holiness Sankarshan Das Adikari;I feel this need to do so from the core of my heart, to sing of You and praise Your Glories.
It is through my previous teachers care and devotion (Titiksu Dasa and his wife Chakra Nadi Dasi) that I have now been able to come into contact with the Lotus feet of His Holiness and am now able to eventually formally take shelter there; it is
therefore nor possible for me ever to repay them for enabling me to find His Holiness.
Happy Birthday Your Holiness, Happy Dial and a very Happy New Year!
My dear Srila Gurudeva!
Please accept my humble obeisances!
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
On this most auspicious occasion of your Vyas Puja, I convey my most sincere gratitude for your most sublime Ultimate Self Realization course, which has been so catalytic to my spiritual life. Every day your Thought For the Day transports us - as you like to mention- far, far, beyond this miserable, drab material existence. I thank Lord Sri Krishna for having blessed us with your Divine guidance, inspiring words and loving devotional realizations. I am eagerly awaiting the day when I will be able to meet you face to face and solemnly take initiation vows under your Lotus feet.
Your humble student,
Dear Sankarshan Prabhu,
Dear Srila Prabhupada humble Servant-My Dear Gurudeva, Please accept my humble obeisances at your lotus feet.

Vr all indebted to u for burning our ignorance about life by the burning torch of knowledge given by HDG.SRILA PRABHUPADA n the previous acharyas. HARE KRISHA
Dear Sankarshan Prabhu,
Please accept my humble obeisances at your lotus feet.
You are my best friend because you are telling me how to live my life. I have spend my life so foolishly trying to enjoy everything. I have been thinking “Is this person pleasing me? What do I have to give him? Can I get more from him than I’m giving?”. And I knew that happiness meant that I was getting more. This was everything to me.
When I came first time to Hare Krishna temple I saw that there was altar and not just empty altar like in churches but there were two figures. Everything was so personal! Temple was personal, prasadam was personal and devotees were especially personal. They were most personal because they were speaking about this philosophy and Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna. This was the easiest way to be in contact with Krishna. Devotees were saying that Krishna consciousness meant loving devotional service to Supreme.
Now I’m trying to put this into practice but I find my mind is always there in my way. That’s why there are so many spiritual masters who are lovingly as you trying to help me. I don’t have eyes to see your qualities properly and I notice my offering is concentrated mostly to what I have seen myself through my imperfect eyes but I hope my perspective will change and I can see things as they are. This can happen just because of loving guidance based on sastra. Actually you are giving it also every day to me through your disciple Ahaituki Bhakti devi dasi. I hope I can be instrument like she is and give this to others.
Thank you for your blessing and i accept your blessing in full heart

Monday, 16 October 2006, Riga, Latvia
Dear Guru Maharaja.
Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
All glories to you on this most auspicious day of your appearance.
I have been listening to your lectures for two years.
I have been reading your "Thought for the Day" for about a year and a
half. I have been chanting your pranama mantra for a year. If it were a
university, it would be time to take an examination.
Luckily you are so merciful and don't make me do that.
Because I would fail.
Actually, after two years of listening, reading and chanting there is
only one important thing I have been able to realize. I must agree - it
is not much for two years and it would not be enough to pass an exam,
but even this only one realization is much worthier for me than all the
knowledge I have attained at school, two universities and my business in
One might think I am exaggerating.
But I am not.
One might think that you, Gurudev, are exaggerating every time when you
say that this knowledge is more valuable than all the money in the
Universe. But you are not.
And I am here today to thank you for giving me this knowledge and
testify that even I, with my polluted mind, could taste a drop of this
nectar. Let me today share this drop of nectar you have given me. The
drop that has changed my life more than anything else. Here it is:
In India there are two kinds of dogs.
The ones are the most miserable dogs you've seen in your whole life.
They are skinny, underfed and diseased. They have wounds all over their
bodies from fights they have had with other dogs. They are so miserable
that you just want to cry when you see them. They are called - the
street dogs. The dogs that don't have masters.
But if you walk on that famous Juhu beach in Bombay where the rich men
take their morning walks, you will see the other kind of dogs - very
jolly, healthy and strong. The dogs that have masters. (Friday, 13
October 2006, Riga, Latvia)
One might ask: well, what's so fascinating about this parable? Even a
child can understand that having a master for a dog is much better
option than not having one. Well, when I heard this parable for the
first time last year I liked it, but I couldn't say it impressed me.
Why? Because I was listening to it in the mood of master. Actually, it
can't be understood properly unless one is listening to in the mood of
I am quite an expert in this discipline called "think like a master".
For more than 20 years I have been considering myself as a master for my
wife, children and employees. I have been blaming them for not being
able to realize how much I care. I saw them as quite ungrateful people.
And it made me suffer. For more than 20 years.
And then I met you Gurudev and I couldn't understand why people are
ready to accept advice and service given by you, a stranger, but reject
help given by father, mother or manager.
The answer is hidden in the viewpoint of a storyteller of this parable.
The parable can be told ether from the viewpoint of master; or dog. With
the same words two different stories can be told. One, from the
viewpoint of master, about stupid and ungrateful people; And another
one, from the viewpoint of dog, to express one's appreciation to the
I know what mood you were in when you told this story on Friday. How do
I know that? Because once you finished it saying: "I am a dog of Shrila
On Friday when you told the parable again, all of a sudden I recalled
this sentence. Thanks to your personal example I was able to realize the
cause of all my anxieties - delusion that I am the master and protector
I realized that only one who is able to serve their master humbly could
become a master for other people. I realized that only one who sees
themselves as a servant is regarded as a master by others.
You were telling us a story full of appreciation to your spiritual
master Shrila Prabhupada. This genuine love and gratitude to your
spiritual master, this pure mood of a servant of your spiritual master -
that makes people accept you as their master.
I realized that if I do want to help other people I must give up
thinking about being more intelligent, skilful or experienced. I must
act having only one desire - to please you - my dear spiritual master.
And I must believe implicitly that it is the only way to unlimited
Every time we meet you teach me a lesson on the art of perfect serving.
And now I know. This is the only art I care about. The only art I would
like to be master of.
Therefore I humbly beg you :
Dear Guru Maharaja, please, engage me in your service in such a way that
when my time comes to leave this body I would do it in the consciousness
of a humble dog of His Grace Sriman Sankarshan Prabhu Adhikari.
Trying to serve you,

souls like me and please keep giving us NECTAR OF DEVOTION.

thank you enough for our indebtedness to you. May Lord Krishna bless
you with a long life so that you can spread His message far and wide and
make Hare Krishna a household word.

Please, I beg, kindly accept my respectful obeisances at
Your lotus feet and engage me in Your pure devotional service.
All glories to His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
Spiritual Master, today is indeed a very auspicious day. On this planet on this day of Your appearance Your lotus figure blessed the world. Master, this alone is the greatest cause for celebration.

Maharaja ,on this day of your VyasaPuja, i would like to say thank you for introducing me to a new way of learning in Krsna consciousness.
I was browsing through Krishna.com and came upon your Ultimate Self Realisation
course. I register for the course two weeks ago and i am also receiving your daily THOUGHT FOR THE DAY. Your course is making me read more and your Thought for the Day is very inspiring. Your thought for the day is the first thing i read when i put
my computer on in the morning. My Gurumaharaja describe you as his dear godbrother. I will never be able to thank you enough for what you're doing for myself and a lots of people around the world.You're a perfect example of a disciple,fulfilling the instructions of your spiritual master .
Thank you Maharaja.

Dear Srila Gurudeva! Please accept my obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada! Today is the most auspicious day of your Vyasa Puja. You are so near and only two days ago I thought I could come and spend the whole day offering you obeisances, making you flower garlands, cook sweets and do all kind of service. But I had to be at school and work as this is my duty. Like a loving father you haven't told me once to miss school when it is necessary to be there. Thats how I feel, you are like a loving father. When you were here with Mataji and Ahaituki Bhakti, I felt like the whole family was together. I felt so happy. I felt I had all that I needed. It is amazing how you can give so much for so many people. You are giving me the proof that the process Prabhupada gave, is working. Like an ideal father you are teaching me how things have to be done and how to make our lives perfect. And like to a father, i can never give you as much as you are giving. But I promise that I will carefully listen to what you are teaching and try to live my life according to your teachings. I am alwa
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRABHU JI, THIS IS A GREAT DAY FOR YOUR APPEARANCE AND THE TRANCENDENTAL SERVICE YOU ARE DOING TO HELP FALLEN SOUL LIKE US. YOUR KNOWLEDGE IS GREAT AND EVERYBODY APPRECIATE THEM YOUR QUESTION AND ANSWERS.
I would like to thank you so much for your Commitment to Srila Prabhupad’s orders and to Krishna for sincerely spreading the message of Krishna Consciousness. I have been a searcher for many years of my life and this message, and the way you carry it and teach it, have impacted me more over the past couple of months than all of the years of searching I have done combine. May Krishna free you from this misery of birth and death!! You have opened my eyes to a way of life I never thought possible, and your commitment to correspond personally is truly awe inspiring. I pray I can live my life to honor you to the fullest extent by becoming Krishna Conscious and helping other the way you have began helping me.
All of my love and prayers!!!
Your Humble Aspirant
Firstly i humbly bow down to u and i offer my obeisances on to ur lotus
feet. I would like to wish u a happy birthday and i thank you very much for
what u have to for this poor ignorant fool. I had asked you a question if it
was because of my karma that i found krishna consciousness but u said it
was because of the mercy of the devotees. I thank you very much for blessing
me and opening my eyes through your ultimate self realization programme.
I wish i could be of some service to you eventhough i cannot donate some
money as i do not have a credit card and im still a student. But i am happy
because when ever i get a chance to talk to any one about krishna i pass the
ultimate self realization email to them. You are the most meriful and you
are the only 1 who can save me and the world from this pain of ignorance. I
wish you success in spreading krishna consciousness all over the world and
helping me understand the purpose of this human life.
I am very lucky to have found a ture spiritual master and i will always
cherish your words of nectar and knowledge from your mails. Hare krsna
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories
On this glorious appearance day of Your Grace I want
to thank you for all of the association I was so
fortunate to receive from you and your great wife, Her
Grace Vishnu Priya Mataji. I still think alot about
the time I spent in Austin with you-all and with Sri
Sri Radha-Damodare. It was a wonderful time for me and
so very instructive. I miss that mood in myself
Now that we are celebrating Kartik again I am feeling
very grateful to all the Vaisnava devotees who have
helped me so much to persue Krishna Consciousness.
Please forgive my many offenses and please give me
your mercy to remain a devotee and to improve daily.
I am always uplifted to read your wonderful course
postings and to follow your preaching activities. Your
activites are an inspiration to us all! I am very
grateful to see the example you are setting for all
devotees to follow. All glories to your service to
Guru and Gauranga!
I consider myself to be very fortunate to have been blessed by Gurudev's loving messages and teachings. Every day I read his thoughts/messages so kindly sent to many like me. I derive lot of solace from his encompassing love and guidance in Krishna consciousness. My late father had a habit of saying 'Krishna' whenever he sneezed(big soung that emanates from nose). It became a habit with me too. I love and adore Lord Krishna - Radha Krishna. Can anyone refrain from loving Krishna - Radha Krishna? Still unfortunately, I am entangled with the worldly matters. I confess I am a sinner too on many counts. I am striving with Gurudev's loving messages to tread on the right path.
On this eventfulday - Gurudev's birthday, I fervently pray The Lord Sri Krishna - Radha Krishna, to bestow all His Divine Grace on Gurudev to transform this world into a peaceful and livable place with sinners like me transformed with complete Krishna Consciousness.
On this very happy day of our rejoicing, my sastang pranams to Gurudev. May we the deciples of Gurudev be blessed to rejoice and revel in His Presence for ever. We are so grateful to You Maharaj. Pray your noble thoughts/deeds pervade the entire world and peac and happiness be granted to the manking and all living beings.
With love - in Krishna Consciousness and always thinking of You and Lord Sri Krishna,
-Hanumantha Rao, a devotee -
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupad.
Just today i read that this very day is your Vyas Puja. Although I would like to offer some words of glorification, I have to admit that i know very little about you. However the little that i do know I will try to express that. You are a disciple of Srila Prabhupad. So you had the pious credits needed to meet personally a pure devotee of God and a jagad Guru. Now you are a Guru of ISKCON in good standing. Also you are dedicating all your time to spread the message of Prabhupad, all over the world, despite all the allurements, obstacles and difficulties offered by material nature. So not only have you decided to practice Sanatana Dharma for your own benefit, you've also decided to dedicate your time and energy so that people all over the world can have the opportunity of deriving the same benefits that you have. Now, for some it has become fashionable to dump their Guru and become a ritwik or a buddhist or something else. In these circumstances one would have t! o be very brave to accept disciples and give them guidance. Not only are you doing that but you are also succeeding in guiding your disciples and students, otherwise they would have become dissatisfied and gone somewhere else. Despite all the problems ISKCON has had you have worked hard in cooperation with your Godbrothers so that the organisation doesn't dissolve, and expands further, all over the world. So you have kept the flag of the tradition of Lord Caitanya flying high. For all these achievements and many more I offer my humble obeisances to you again and again and again.
I recently began reading your thoughts for the day and I want to thank you for bringing me closer to Lord Krishna. I am still learning and understanding the ISKCON movement and enjoying what I have experienced so far. I am hoping to meet you soon in Houston and learn even more from you as all your other followers have written. I too would like to experience the bliss that everyone has written about after coming into contact with you. Please accept my humble wishes for a blessed day.

I am very much obliged to this course as it has brought a lot of changes in me. I am very grateful to a devotee for telling me to subscribe to this course. I can never forget the help he has done by asking me to subscribe to Maharaj's mails. Initially i was very bored in reading & unattractive to this types of mails but because of blessings of such elevanted devotees like you i am able to appreciate the nectar you are distributing. Because of Maharaj's motivation through this nectarian messages i am able to chant the maha mantra 16 rounds daily. I always look forward for the mail to read the nectar and go through them when ever i feel lonely & frustrated. I am looking forward for Maharaj's visit to Melbourne so that i can personally pay my obeisance and take his blessings.
