How rare is your Association ...

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 Adhikari iti 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, writing an Offering to you is like showing torch light in front of the sunlight.

As your traveling keeps increasing each year we miss you more and more, though on one hand I feel very happy that so many people get your unconditional mercy but on the other hand we here local in Austin miss your presence.

On this most auspicious day I want to express my feelings of heartfelt indebtedness to you for everything that I am. The more I think about this the more I realize how unworthy but how fortunate I am. Putting my fortunate in mathematical terms, What are the chances of finding a pure devotee in 6 Billion people in the entire world, .17 Billionth
of probability and such is the rare opportunity Krishna has Given me, please bless me that I can take full advantage of this greatest opportunity at be at your lotus feet always.

Shri Caitanya Mahaprabhu confirms ...
CC Madhya 19.151
"According to their karma, all living entities are wandering throughout the entire universe. Some of them are being elevated to the upper planetary systems, and some are going down into the lower planetary systems. Out of many millions of wandering living entities, one who is very fortunate gets an opportunity to associate with a bona fide
spiritual master by the grace of Krishna. By the mercy of both Krishna. and the spiritual master, such a person receives the seed of the creeper of devotional service."

and as Krishna mentions in SB 10.80.34
"I, the Soul of all beings, am not as satisfied by ritual worship, brahminical initiation, penances or self-discipline as I am by faithful service rendered to one's spiritual master."

So on this most auspicious day of your Divine Appearance in this material world, I fall at your lotus feet, and beg for your shelter and mercy. Please help me realize that I have no qualification for pure, loving service, other than your mercy and make this servant one who's made of nothing other than this mercy alone.

Your eternal servant in the dust of your lotus feet,

Abhay Charan Das



Srila Gurudeva,
I offer my humble obeisances onto you, We were all roaming aimlessly in this material world without any anchor and imitating the decaying culture of western civilization.
We had forgotten our eternal dharma and have embraced the material culture and we were buying and reading hundreds of book searching for the eternal truth and using the spiritual knowledge for satisfying our material lust, thinking that to the eternal aim of the life.

We thought that god wanted us to become rich, beautiful, famous and enjoy life. But because of your mercy we understood the truth which was not possible to learn even after millions of years and with any amount of austerity. The power of Krishna Nama and knowledge and love of Vrindavan and the Brijvasis. You revealed to us the spiritual dham and how to enter, behave in the dham. You provided an anchor and rudder to our drowning boat. How can we forget you, how can we repay you, how can we repay your eternal debt. It not possible for fallen souls like us to measure you and repay your mercy. We can just pray to Krishna that you be our eternal Guru life after life, as Krishna has revealed us through you and you are the transparent medium through which we have tasted the Krishna prema. We can just say Jai Gurudeva, as we are not able to serve you to the best of our ability although we try still even then you are merciful on the fallen souls like us. This the mystery and power of pure devotee like you.

Jai Gurudeva. 

Your eternal servant,
Advaita Chandra das 


My dear Srila Gurudeva,

Please accept my humble obeisances at your lotus feet.

All glories to you!
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

Srila Gurudeva, it is because of your mercy and constant guidance that I am feeling so blissful and happy now. I am so foolish that was seeking pleasure from stool instead of relishing the holy name in ecstatic bliss. You saved me from getting lost in the whirlpool of maya. You are so kind to bestow your undeserving mercy on this mleccha. My rascal mind is so cruel but I am learning the art of taming my mind to act as a good friend. Though it looks like there are millions of miles to go in this path, by your grace, I have great hope for success and the means to the goal itself is so nice and a celebration at every moment. Thank you, Srila Gurudeva, for your guidance, support and unlimited kindness on this hard hearted soul. This debt that I owe you is so great that the material debts seem so puny and trivial. You often say these words "revolutionize the planet", "pure devotional service" and "spiritual purity". I pray to you that I develop my love for Krishna and become a useful tool in spreading this wonderful and amazingly sweet Krishna Consciousness movement. 

Thank you very very much, Srila Gurudeva,

Your aspiring servant,

Bhaktivinode das


On the auspicious occasion of Vyasa Puja, we offer our obeisances due to debility in our movements; we are not able to serve, as disciples should.

Guruji you have showmen us the path to walk the spiritual path. You have shown us to do sadhana and love Krishna. Krishna is state of being. He is personification joy. We have to be a committed listener to what the guru says to grasp his teachings. If we are family sickness like any other sickness incapacitates us. The guru has divine grace. He understands the ways of the world and the law of destiny. He is a realized being simple and loving. He does not covet anything from disciples but our sins and anxieties. He is one who makes you free. He is one who delivers to freedom.

Kabir the saint sang, " If is the mercy of my guru that has made me to know the unknown ; have learned from him how to walk without feet, to see without eyes, to hear without ears to drink without mouth, to fly without wings, I have brought my love and my meditation into the land where there is no sun and moon , nor day and night.

When you are pulled towards a guru, you are pulled in words. The more you became attracted towards guru, the more you become independent. The more you surrendered to the guru, the more you feel you have freedom you never had before. The guru functions as a mediator because you cannot go directly. He will help you to be self. Without a guru fritters away our lives wondering in the winding path of ignorance we are beset with natural and man made calamities, we remain fearful and anxious and our minds and bodies suffer on account of this. The guru can lead his disciples to the vision of god. He elevates them to higher levels vidaya should be obtained by humility without humility we cannot understand the teachings of the guru.

Guruji your explanations and interpretations of Bhagavatam are enlightening us. Like Gayatri mantra, you are illuminating our lives with:

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare'

Mahamantra.

Always we pray for your blessings. Pranam.

Dear Srila Gurudeva,

Please accept my humble obeisances..

Its a great pleasure to give you this offering on this auspicious day of your Appearance..Jai Gurudeva..

So What does the word Guru means?? In Guru Gita it is described as "dispeller of darkness"..

I was in darkness previously, trying to enjoy this material world thinking that is the way of life, and was a fool thinking in this way to enjoy Maya..

Then I got a bit interested in spiritual life, so in India there a market of so called spiritualists now days, so attended many sessions of them, but I was not satisfied..

Then I came to ISKCON, though I was involved with seva but conviction was not there but then by your mercy when I had attended your lecture in the youth forum and later your personal association, I got firm belief that this is the right path...Then I started taking Krishna Consciousness seriously...Just by your association and e-course it used to motivate me to practice Krishna consciousness more seriously..

You have shown by practical example how to engage in Krishna consciousness 24hours a day...Gurudeva by your innovative ways of spreading Krishna Consciousness have guided so many souls by your e-course all over the world and I am one of them...You have shown me the path of how to Strictly follow Srila Prabhupada's instructions and thereby develop love for Krishna.... Last year in Vrindavan serving you was the most blissful time I had and got to know more about devotional life, how apply in in our lives totally and not partially???

It gives me great joy that I am one of the lucky ones in the world to whom you have showered your mercy and accepted me as your disciple and given me the most valuable gem of Krishna bhakti...

If not for you I would be still be engaging in futile attempts to enjoy Maya and suffering in darkness...

I wish to serve you always. Please allow me to Leave..

Your Eternal Servant,
Acharya Das..


nama om visnu-padaya
krsna-presthaya bhu-tale
srimate sankarshan das adhikariti namine

Dear Srila Gurudeva,

Dandavat obeisances at your lotus feet. All glories to His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

You travel constantly, ignoring your own material comforts to bring the fallen, conditioned souls back to Godhead. You are challenged and insulted, but you remain undisturbed, defeating all challengers with the authority of shastra. You have had an attempt to run you down, a car crash, and have been arrested while spreading the bliss of Krishna consciousness throughout the world with complete faith in Lord Krishna, completely surrendered to Him. You are a pure soul that thousands throughout the world look to for guidance and knowledge. I offer my obeisances again and again to my Spiritual Master without whom I would be nothing.

Since taking shelter at your lotus feet through unexpected initiation last year, my life has changed. Within a month and a half of initiation, I was able to take shelter of the temple and am now in the Lord's service 24 hours each day. This could only have taken place through the mercy of my Spiritual Master.
On this day, your Vyasa Puja day, I pray fervently that the Lord will give you even greater facility to preach this blissful knowledge so the entire world will be awash in Krishna Consciousness.

Your servant,

Murari Caitanya das

His lotus feet.

My Dear Srila Gurudeva,

Krishna held the light so I could see the lifeline that you so graciously held out to me and helped me up out of the dark hole I was in. I will forever be grateful to you. I thank Lord Krishna every day for sending you to this earth so that you could rescue me from this material madness. I bow down to your lotus feet and work and pray each day that I can become the humble servant that you need me to be. I only wish to please you and Lord Krishna.

Hare Krishna dear Gurudeva and Vishnupriya Mataji, Please accept our most humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

First we would like to congratulate you for the Vyasa Puja and for the beginning of the month of Kartik.
We are wishing you good health and all the best in the service of Srila Prabhupada.
We are very thankful for the enlightening association, the lectures, the personal service, the prasadam, and the wonderful initiation ceremony.
We hope these samskaras will stay in our hearts and will give us strength until out next meeting.
At the moment we are in Sofia and we are taking part of the Bhakta program. 
We did book distribution as well and for 2 days we did
7 books and preached to many young people who were interested.
We understood that without the association of the devotees we could easily deviate. The devotees requested us to visit them more often and to associate more between each other and to cooperate.
We will try to follow the instructions you gave us.
Gouracandra Prabhu feels that only now he can really appreciate everything you did for us.
At the moment we are very enthusiastic and we have a lot of energy to serve the devotees and to carry out our duties.

Again we offer to you our humble obeisances.

My dear father, Srila Gurudeva, 
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. All glories to Your Grace. 


Sakala janame pita, mata sabhe paya
Krsna-guru nahi mile bujhiha hiyaya

“ In every life one gets a father and mother. Rarely, however, does one obtain Guru and Krsna.” Bengali poem

On this most auspicious occasion of your transcendental appearance day, I will try to write some words in appreciation of Your Grace. Volumes upon volumes of words glorifying Your Grace written by the greatest linguists could not even begin to describe Your glories what to speak of a few words from a fallen conditioned soul like myself. 

As the years pass trying to practice Krishna consciousness, I realize more and more how completely dependent I am on You. I feel like You and Mataji are always pulling me along the pathway of Krishna consciousness. Time and time again You both do whatever it takes to pull me out of Maya and engage me in Krishna's service, yet for some reason or the other I foolishly and stubbornly keep crawling back to Maya. No matter how many times I fail at trying to serve You both or do things in an improper mood, You both are always more then willing to give me another chance. 

Your great level of compassion and tolerance for the fallen conditioned souls is beyond my comprehension. Every lava You dedicate to serving Srila Prabhupada and spreading Lord Caitanya’s mercy around the world. Every time I have the great opportunity to be in Your physical presence, I am always amazed to see how You are tirelessly working on guiding thousands and thousands of Your students at every moment. 

I sometimes wonder how a rascal like myself ever came into contact with a bona fide spiritual master, like Your Grace. Everything is due to Your mercy alone. On my own I am incapable of anything. Yet, foolishly I forget this and use whatever little independence I have improperly.

You have told me many, many times that vapuh is more important then vani. I have most recently read that by sincerely following our Spiritual Master’s instructions, the feeling of separation will be dissipated as the Spiritual Master is fully present in His instructions. Even though I am trying to follow the instructions You have given me, I still can not seem to rid myself of this intense feeling of separation from You, Guru Mata and Sri Sri Radha-Damodara. I’m guessing this is due to my endeavors lacking intensity and sincerity, as well as my improper service mood.

On this most auspicious day, I would like to try to reciprocate with You in some way for the causeless mercy You are bestowing upon me at every second. However, when searching for something that I can offer You of any worth I find I have no assets. The only thing You will accept for paying my debt, is that what You are giving me, as Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur says, Gurudeva, Your mercy is all that I am made of. In this connection You explain that trying to repay the debt we have to our Spiritual Master is like trying to repay someone you owe some money to by borrowing more money from that same person. In other words rather then resolve my debt, I become more and more indebted to You. 

All I can do is try to overcome this false pride by falling at Your lotus feet and begging for Your mercy and blessings, for without Your mercy I am nowhere and there is no hope for me. Please Srila Gurudeva, help me to overcome all these material attachments, impure motives, anarthas within my heart and help me to understand what is holding me back from fully surrendering myself unto Your lotus feet. 

Srila Prabhupada told His disciples, “You mentioned that your pathway has become filled with stumbling blocks, but there are no stumbling blocks, I can kick out all those stumbling blocks immediately, provided you accept my guidance. With one stroke of my kick I can kick out all stumbling blocks.”

Since You are Srila Prabhupada’s empowered representative, I have full confidence that You can do the same for all of us, provided we hold our end by accepting whatever guidance You give us. Please Srila Gurudeva, despite my innumerable disqualifications, please always help me to remember and implement Your instructions, and keep me engaged in Your service and safely under the shelter of Your lotus feet. Please help me to get rid of my false sense of independence and help me realize that real independence lies in surrender to the lotus feet or Sri Guru, Gauranga and the Vaishnavas. 

Your eternal servant, 
Radhapriya devi dasi


Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and all glories to You especially today on the celebration day of Your Sri Vyas Puja, the appearance day of my beloved Srila Gurudeva!

Please accept my humble offering to you on this auspicious day:



And if a fool tried shooting You 
with a rifle or a gun
I would jump in front of You
brave without any fear
to save Your life so precious
I do not care about mine
for You have saved me
my sweet Lord divine
Thine will be done 
and not mine!

To Your lotus feet I bow my head humbly offering my dandavats.

Dear Srila Gurudeva,

Please accept my humble obeisances at your lotus feet All glories to Srila Prabhupada and all glories to Sri Sri Radha Damodar.
On this holy appearance day of yours I pray Krishna that your flooding the whole world with Krishna Consciousness increase more and more and touch the hearts of even the fallen souls like myself and make me firmly situated in unalloyed devotional service.
Even though I have been exposed to Srila Prabhupada's teachings for over 30 years and have been associating with devotees for a long time, it was only on a sporadic basis. It is not until I moved to Austin and been regularly getting the nectar of your preaching, I am realizing that I should get a little more firmly situated. I am learning more and more from your teachings, though you have been traveling quite a bit lately, and I am not getting much physical association, but I am more and more in touch with your preaching, on a daily basis through the E- Course You are giving, the weekly lessons, thought for the day, and question and answers.
I have come to realize the there is no difference between the initiating spiritual master and instructing spiritual master as both of them are teaching the same truth.
May Krishna give you a long healthy life, so you continue to flood the whole world with Krishna Consciousness which obviously includes a fallen soul like myself.
HARE KRISHNA,
Ever aspiring for your blessings,
Your fallen servant,
Vamana Hari Das

My Dear Srila Gurudeva, Please accept my obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and you! If not for your kindness to accept me as a disciple and initiate me, I should have probably already glided down into a lower birth due to still having so many material desires and not being fully Krishna Conscious when I had my stroke. But your compassion and the compassion of Lord Krishna and the Vaisnavas pulled me through and now with firm determination, having learned first hand how swiftly death can come, I have resolved to transmute my desires to the higher taste of Krishna Consciousness and make full use of the time Lord Krishna has given me. My only prayer is to become a pure devotee and to be engaged in His service and yours eternally. With love on your appearance day, Your devoted servant and disciple, Jambavati Devi Dasi


My Dear Srila Gurudev,

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

Shanti

I offer my respectful obeisances unto His Grace Sankarshan Das Adhikari, who is very dear to Lord Krishna, having taken shelter at His lotus feet.


Dear Gurudeva,

Please accept my respectful obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

It is the great kindness of Lord Krishna that he has led me to take shelter at your lotus feet. For years together, I was feeling left out of the stream of flowing transcendental nectar called ISKCON and you have come along and swept me up into the middle of it.

It is your kind mercy on this conditioned soul that you have given me some little service to assist you in your great mission of revolutionizing the consciousness of the planet. It is your tolerant nature that you overlook all my faults and disqualifications, even treating me sometimes as a friend and an equal, although I am by far your subordinate.

This is just in keeping with the teachings of Manu:

titiksaya karunaya maitrya cakhila-jantusu
samatvena ca sarvatma bhagavan samprasidati

“The Lord is very satisfied with His devotee when the devotee greets other people with tolerance, mercy, friendship, and equality.” SB 4.11.13


I see in my mind’s eye two hundred thousand of your spiritual descendants spread all over the globe, preaching the glories of Srila Prabhupada and Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s Movement, a thousand in each state, tasting the nectar of pure devotional service, and turning the tide of godlessness into a tidal wave of pure love of God, Krishna consciousness at it’s best.


Narada Muni, the Devarsi, Lord Nityananda, the Avaduta, Haridas Thakura, the Namacarya and Srila Prabhupada, the Jagad-guru, are all great preachers and missionaries in spreading unfailingly Krishna consciousness far and wide. In the same mood, you are prepared to travel to every nook and corner of this planet, accompanied by your exalted wife, Srimati Vishnupriya Mataji, to bring the message of good fortune and bliss in Krishna consciousness to the despairing neglected humanity.

I pray that I may be allowed to continue to assist you in your service to Srila Prabhupada, and to serve all your disciples and followers in any way that I can.


Sincerely,


Prema Bhakti dasa Adhikari
Your servant in Niles, Michigan

my humble offering to my Guru's lotus feet

My dear Guru Maharaj,

Please first accept my humble obeisances,
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

Maharaj, I cannot even ask you to accept this offering that I am writing you.

You have been guiding me for the last few years with incredible enthousiasm and determination while I was nearly all the time more focused on my own desires than on how to serve you. I am greatly endebted to you. If today I cannot follow all your orders, than I beg you to please excuse me and not take offense. Even if this would mean that I cannot proceed towards initiation. I feel great affection for you and again beg you to please receive this in your heart.

Begging to be at your lotus feet,
your fallen servant,
Shikandi


Hare Krishna Prabhu ji,

My dandavat pranaam,

I am immensely grateful to you for giving me the gift of Krishna consciousness, your daily thoughts are an inspiration. I aspire to be your servant.

Hare Krishna,
In your service,

Your Grace, 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! 

Michele


Dear Prabhu, 

I am so happy to discover the great Vaishnava like Sankarshan Das Adhikari. Only a Vaishnava can be a guru. So this is the part of inconceivable mercy of Krishna and Balaram that devotees in the different parts of Europe have got the fortune to associate and take mercy from Sankarshan Prabhu. 

All glories to Sankarshan Prabhu,
All glories to Maha Sankarshan,
All glories to Lord Gauranga,
All glories to Srila Prabhupada

Please forgive my inabilities to properly glorify the spiritual master. 

Thank you for giving me an opportunity to glorify Krishna's great devotee guru.

Dear Guru Maharaja,

Please accept my humblest obeisances unto Your Lotus Feet.

All Glories to Shri Guru and Shri Gauranga,

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada,

Prabhuji,

Just like insignificant grains of sand are blown from side to side
and place to place in a vast desert,

Until sand dunes are made by the strong wind,

You are mercifully blessing and blowing all of us insignificant souls to safety,

In this vast desert of material misery,

Going place to place not caring for your own comfort,

Spreading the word of the Lord in the extreme corners of the world,

To all of us insignificant souls,

Not worthy of anything but just by your causeless mercy are we blown into the sand-
dunes of safety, 

We have nothing to give only to gain,

To you Oh Dear Guru,

Indebted to you eternally,

your most insignificant and unworthy servants,

The self realization lessons being sent by His Grace Sankarshan Das Adhikari Gurudeva are so simple and practical but at the same time so enlightening and inspiring that whoever reads it or hears it, will definitely be transformed/inspired to become Lord Krishna's devotees. Of this there is no doubt. I wish and pray to Lord Krishna that he is with us for a very very long time to enlighten/inspire us.

Your words are a life raft 
carrying us toward 
the shores of Goloka
on transcendental waves

Your life is so pure
echoing the heart
of Srila Prabhupada
in transcendental ways

You always spread the truth
like the light, it lets us see
like the moon in dark of night
with transcendental rays

Your place within the life
of this fallen soul is high
you uplift the internet
with transcendental praise

You care enough to give
And hope that we will take
I hope we serve you well
these transcendental days

Thank you for your mercy!
Your servant,

Respected Swamiji,
My name is A. Sundarraj from India.
I want to wish you a very happy birthday in Krishna consciousness and many happy returns of our pure devotion to God Krishna through our great devotee of Krishna Swami Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and his loving disciple, Sankarshan Das Adhikari.

Thank you thank you for everything.  You have increased my devotion to Lord Krishna many fold and my love for Krishna is increasing day by day.  I am sure with you Swamiji as my guide I will be lead to the perfection in Krishna consciousness.

With God's blessings and love,
Yours in Krishna consciousness

Dear Guru,
Thanks for all the guidance and food for thought. I will be leaving for New Zealand to do my PHD in January 2007. But your continuing "food for thought" will always be part of me. Happy Birthday and may all the spiritual wealth be with you always.

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. 

Reading his words has been a fascinating experience, and I believe he speaks from the heart as well as purely from the Vedic wisdom. But sometimes actions speak louder than words, and his actions certainly say a lot. It makes me feel like a selfish fool sometimes, but I mean that in a good way! 

Best wishes,

Matthew McDonnell

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.

Today " The Master's " existence is more relevant and immensely necessary and important. The job which the Master is doing tirelessly, with full dedication selflessly , is remarkable. We need him, the present world needs him, the society at large needs him. The work he is doing is unusually difficult . The endeavor has to be constant and untiring , success may be limited but whatever extent it is , it is extremely satisfying and meaningful. No doubt there is no quick fix solution or shortcuts to the task. It is time consuming to bring about understanding in an individual, particularly in today's context when every man is looking just the other way and with innumerable attractive distractions in the illusory sensory objects diverting the attention from realities.
I wish Sriman Guruji to achieve his objective totally. I am too insignificant to say anything about Guruji, but not caring to whatever anyone may think , I humbly but with full intensity would like to express my deepest appreciation for the amazing contribution which Guruji is making to the entire humanity , silently , gradually but extremely effectively and absolutely with no personal motive. Personally I have gained considerably , realizing there is a lot more yet , I have to draw from the Guruji . I am too late in this body , there is probably no time for me. But the little I have received so far has been pure bliss, aim to be a Sadhak.

I wish the Master continue to be close to Sree Krishna like Arjuna was, to enlighten the present world where there is so much darkness , an uphill task but within easy reach and capability of " The Master "

Dear Gurudeva,

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada !
All Glories to your Grace !!

Please accept my humble obeisances unto your lotus feet ! I have been reading the thought for the day for last two years. The service you are doing to our beloved Prabhu Pada is unparalleled. You are the only one using the power of Internet to spread the Krishna Consciousness movement to its full extent. Your answers to the queries from the readers are fully convincing and it will not be possible for anybody to challenge them. It is true that everybody cannot understand the value of leading a Vaishnava life but there are still many who have no access to such a blissful knowledge. Hence, it is all the more important to continue your good work uninterrupted so that somehow such souls come into contact with you. We are doing our best to spread your message - some times we are delighted sometime are disappointed. On your Vyasapooja day I pray to Lord Krishna may all your desires be fulfilled you achieve full success in your mission.

Dear Punya Gurudeva,
You have been showering me with invaluable guidance to save me from the miseries. Oh Gurudeva, how can I ever repay for all that you have bestowed on me.

On the day of your birth day, my sincere prayers for your health and well being. May Lord Krishna provide you enough strength and means to carry on with your divine deeds for many hundreds of years.

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.

Dear Maharaj,

Please accept my humble obeisances.
All Glories to Srila Prabhupada, All Glories to Srila Guru and Gauranga !

It is wonderful to know that your birthday is falling on 16 October 2006, i.e. tomorrow and it the occasion for the disciples to celebrate this day as Vyasa Puja celebrations. Though I am connected with the disciplic succession through the system followed by ISKCON, as instructed by Srila Prabhupada, I am a regular reader of your ‘Though for the day’ and I forward them to my various friends and devotees, and it is really enlivening and inspiring.

Guru Maharaja, your sincerity and dedication and ultimately your firm faith in the words of Srila Prabhupada is commendable and your humility, service attitude, selflessness and lot of other divine qualities of a pure Vaishnava really enchant us. It is really a great task you have undertaken to disseminate the ultimate truth all over the darkest region of this material world, so that a lot more of people get relieved from the terrific influence of Maya & Kali. 

Maharaja, we sincerely pray to Srila Prabhupada, Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Lord Nrisimhadeva and our beloved couple Radha-Krishna to protect you always, so that the mission that you have undertaken from Srila Prabhupada goes on and on and on uninterruptedly.

Wish you a very happy birthday.

Hare Krishna,

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.
I am trying very, very hard to adhere to the path initially set out to me by Guru Maharaja and trying now to say just a few words of praise for His guidance. He has lifted the darkness of ignorance from my eyes and is enabling me to see more clearly my way forward, I feel so humbled by this, revealing my reality as it is.

sa vidya tanmati may

My Gurudeva His Holiness Sankarshan Das Adhikari has not in the least any desire for false prestige for Himself and all the qualities for a bona fide spiritual teacher are there in Him for all to see; in all of His activities and teachings. So solely by His grace and guidance and that of His own spiritual master His Divine Grace A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and His teachers, He is now there to light the way forwards for myself and many others. He has never disregarded anybody; and His own spiritual master showed Him the way forward and many others of His disciples; by His own example and by showering the world with the light of the Bhagavad-gita,and the joy and brilliance of Lord Krishna's message contained within it; Krishna's love and enlightenment.
My Gurudeva has never disregarded anybody, He has never cheated anyone, nor ever practiced dishonesty. His actions and model of lifestyle can aptly be described through the following quotation taken from Mundaka Upanishad:

Tad vijnanartham sa gurum eba-bigachhed
Samit pani shotriyam brahma-nistham

Also in this connection the Katha Upanishad says and justly describes Gurudeva thus:

Uttisthat jagrat prapyabaran nibo-dhata dura-tvaya
Durgam pathastat kabayo badanti

O saintly ones! Cease all thoughts of material sense enjoyment. Give up all false designations and have single pointed concentration in the original self. Try to know the Lord Krishna by approaching a spiritual master (the enlightened souls) and earn their guidance and grace.
Gurudeva I wish I were there with You today maybe to help You in some small way as Your servant, in anyway I could. Today I come with my very humble offering to you Sir. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu says that renunciation is a most important thing and that such knowledge should be delivered to every conditioned being, a task you my Gurudeva is taking upon Yourself fantasticaly.As a beginner in devotional service like myself does not have the ability or knowledge yet to solve the dilema;but hopefully one day with Your continued help and guidance, I might in some way be able to help You Your Holiness and thus to honor You a little; for You are indeed Maha-Bhagavata,and You give us all direction.
My thoughts, my words and my actions are not enough to express my feelings and gratitude to You Guru Maharaga.What possibility have I to offer you anything that can in anyway match the gift you have given me?
Krishna this simple word that has been given to me, due to causeless mercy; it has now consumed my very life and now without this word I am nothing. Nor do I wish to be anything without this word Krishna. Master You now travel this very world saving us all from suffering, opening the door to Krishna for all of us to enter there in; through this very door we with one day Krishna's great mercy may one day help You to also save lost souls on this planet. The Pandava Sena is indeed a jewel in Your storehouse of unlimited treasure Your Holiness, and it is my and my brothers and sisters duty to keep polishing it for You; through my there actions, so as it remains bright for You and all to see.
I offer this small and humble offering to You Your Holiness Sankarshan Das Adhikari on Your Appearance Day, in the hope it is of some small value to You. I feel in being able to offer anything at all glorified; to do so for You Gurudeva. Moreover again I would like to thank my other teachers Titiksu Dasa and his wife Chakra Nadi Dasi, and there teachers, and most importantly His Divine Grace A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada for bringing you all to me to guide and light my way and the way of the many other lost souls; for through there help, Your example and guidance,teaching,there words and books in the past and Your and there help and example in the future. It is with there and Your Holiness's help that I have been able to continue so far. My final request is for Your causeless mercy as I throw myself at Your Lotus feet Your Holiness.

Your unworthy servant

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I 'm your follower for some time now; And in that time I have been charmed by you. I want to pray to your lotus feet few prayers:

Please, continue to notice me! As wretched and unworthy as I'm, please ,continue to bestow your merci on me! Please,consider me as your most fallen servant, and take me to the lowest kind of service in Prabhupada's mission!

Please, pull me out of this illusion and teach me how to join your wishes to free the all world from the material suffering!

Please, bless me to ask you the correct questions in order to not take your valuable time and at the same time be able to have the greatest benefit from your answer.

I 'm forever in debt to you. My life does not worth living Without remembering you; Your picture on the bench laughing symbolizes you in my eyes as a self realized person whose mission in life is to serve his Guru for the benefit of all humanity.

Your eternal Servant,

Respected Prabhu Ji:

Please accept my humble obeisances unto the dust of your lotus feet. All glories to you. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. 

The Lord is situated within the heart of every living entity equally, but due to our own impurity and materialism, we are not able to perceive His divine presence. Only the saintly devotee - the true servant of God like you can perceive the Lord's presence at all the times everywhere.
As I knew recently that your Vyasa-Puja will be celebrated on the 16 October 2006, I take pride and joy in glorifying you on your Happy Sri Vyasa-Puja Day. Sri Vyasa-Puja ki jaya!

I enjoy very much your THOUGHT FOR THE DAY that you send to me without fail everyday. These are very much with knowledge and enriching the understanding of our lost culture. You are one of the most magnificent and dynamic Preacher of Sanatan Dharma and a true and obedient servant of His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada as evident through your thoughts.
You are taking so much pains traveling far and near doing a great welfare work by reaching to people of all ages personally in different countries and also preaching on emails for the welfare of many fallen souls far and near. 

Thank you very much in encouraging me towards Krishna Consciousness. I will try to meet you some day in near future for your darshan and your blessings. I pray to Sri Sri Radha and Krishna for your good health at all the times. 

Hare Krishna.

Sri Sri Radha Krsna Ki Jaya!

I do not have words to express my feelings in this mail. 

You are a real devotee and people like you are Sri Radhe's messengers to enlighten the fallen souls. 

A Saint does not have the body for his own self.He like the tree whose existence is for the benefit of others.This is so true for you. 

I pray to my Lord for you to enable you light up many more lives in the years to come.When I was torn apart you relieved me.I thank you so much by bowing down to you.

I am reading his lectures every day and I always pray god to extend his life as much as possible so that he can lift lots and lots of fallen souls to the extent possible and there by can bring krishna Consciousness to all persons in the world.

I pray lord Krishna to give Prabhu ji and Mataji more and more strength.

My English is not strong to express my words better than this.

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.
 
Your servant,
bhaktin Tiina

 

 
My Dear Srila Gurudeva,
please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada.
All glories to Your divine appearance day.
 
These two weeks that I have traveled with you and Gurumata and served you along with so many wonderful devotees we have met on the way has been the greatest, causeless fortune upon this fallen servant. I feel this association has saved me by inspiring in me a new taste and determination for devotional service.
 
I have realized to some extent how all my life I have considered certain personalities to be my closest friends, so close that I cannot even distinct them from myself. But these two weeks have opened my eyes to see how useless friends these lust, anger, greed, madness, envy and illusion are.
 
A bogus guru may take away one's money but as we have heard from you, a bona fide spiritual master is he who takes away one's anxiety. These two weeks I have had a tangible experience of this. I have been busy with different services to you and Mataji so that I've had practically no time for anything else. Today I am simply begging that I can go on like this, the whole next year, and life after life, in your service with ever-increasing purity, love and devotion.
 
Only by your special mercy will this be possible so please accept me more and more in your service to the mission of Srila Prabhupada. I am a poor fool - with a drop of your mercy by which anything is possible, you Srila Gurudeva, the true friend of the poor, can make me a devotee and a worthy servant of the servant of the servant of your lotusfeet.
 
Your daughter,
Ahaituki Bhakti devi dasi

Happy Birthday!  Many Happy Returns of the Day

Thank you very much for kind work

I have learnt a lot by "Daily Thoughts and  "Lessons on Bhagavat Gita."
 

Hare Krsna Sankarshan Prabhu,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I was meaning to send you an offering before your Vyas Puja, but couldn't
get it across in time. Here's a belated one...

You are so adept at spreading this knowledge of self-realization, in the
most practical way for this time and situation. No question is too
difficult for you, and you cut to pieces our ignorance with your expert
intelligence.

In spreading Lord Caitanya's movement, you and Mataji spare no pains in
traveling wherever necessary, and undergo so many hardships in a very
enthusiastic manner. Thank you very much for enlightening us untiringly.
On the auspicious occasion of your Vyas Puja, I will quote your own
composition, as I believe you are the living representation of these
lines...

We will defeat the night by the weapon of light,
driving worng away with right,
freeing the world from fright,

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
total.

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
master.

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
master. 

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
Prabhupada."

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
of somebody.

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
happiness.

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.

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
total.

One might think I am exaggerating.

live for and  how we can get out of the clutches of maya.  You are
carrying out the order of Srila Prabhupada so nicely that Krishna will
shower His Grace upon you without a doubt.  We, in Austin feel so
fortunate because of your association and being able to hear Vedic
knowledge of time immemorial from your lotus mouth.  There is no way to

I´m very happy because today is your Vyas Puja the day of your appearance in this world. I would like to thank you for all your kindness . And for given me the opportunity to serve you. Serving you is the most wonderful thing that I have ever experience .  Following your orders makes me very happy. My life changed since I met you.I remember those days when my life have no sense. Thanks to Lord Krishna I had the opportunity to meet you.  You thought me have to chant Hare Krishna  and you have thought many things.. I don´t have words to express my  gratitude to you. You have been so merciful for accepting me as your disciple. This is a great honor  , because I´m not worthy. I´ll be in debt to you for all the eternity.
 
Dear Gurudeva I´ll be praying to Lord Krishna  for he may always protect you and help you to spread Krishna consciousness all over the world.

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

 

HARE KRISHNA
 
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.

My very dear Srila Gurudeva,

Please accept my most humble obeisances

all glories to Srila Prabhupada and all glories all glories to you.

I wish so much I could be with you today.

Please Gurudeva, Please forgive me for this very small attempt to Glorify you.

This last year Gurudeva, my life has changed from one end to the other. I feel like I've been caught in a hurricane with giant winds twirling me around, spinning me like a leaf from a tree, throwing me here and there.  But in spite of this huge storm ,I've stood tall and strong hanging as tight as I can to your Lotus feet. You saved my life again Gurudeva.

As a matter of fact, you save my life everyday, every second that I live, I live for you.Always hoping with all my heart that in a small tiny way, I can be of service to my dear Spiritual Master. Always hoping that what I do is pleasing you.  Right now for some reason that I cannot understand,  Krsna is keeping me physically very far from you. But its Ok, I trust Krsna completely  I know he's doing this and everything else for my own good. Even though it's very painfull to be far away from you, I kind of realize now that this pain is bringing me Peace and hapiness .  In a strange way that I am now beggining to see, this pain of separation is bringing me closer than ever to you.   I am bowed down at your Lotus feet always and forever, right there where ever you are...at every moment I am with you.

I see you in front of me , I hear your instructions, I see your sweet smile full of affection...

I feel Krsna Gurudeva, I feel Krsna through you...

Please Gurudeva, Please keep me at your Lotus feet eternally. Keep me safe there forever.   Your Glowing  Spiritual strenght  is so amazing and Powerfull, it comes straight from your heart full of Love and goes deep , deep into my heart.    I owe so so so much to you for allowing me to be your disciple and take shelter at your Lotus feet.  Knowing very well I do not deserve it, still you are so mercifull...  Please forgive all the offences I have made.  I miss you terribly Gurudeva.

And Please accept my most humble obeisances for ever...

Your eternal servant      Guru Carana Padma devi dasi                                          

 

My most humble obediences to you your Grace!

 

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!!!

Dear gurudeva,

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

Suriya

 
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to
Srila Prabhupada!

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
actually.

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!

Your servant,

Dharma das
 
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 -

 

Your Grace,
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.

Hare Krishna,
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.

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 always praying that Krishna would help you - the dearest I have.

Your servant karolin

May lord Sri Krishna prolong your life for service of poor human who are
suffering from pain from various corners of this wonderful earth inspite of
willingness but could not achieve due to circumstances beyond their
controll.

Subject: Belated Vyas Puja offering

Hare Krsna Sankarshan Prabhu,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I was meaning to send you an offering before your Vyas Puja, but couldn't
get it across in time. Here's a belated one...

You are so adept at spreading this knowledge of self-realization, in the
most practical way for this time and situation. No question is too difficult
for you, and you cut to pieces our ignorance with your expert intelligence.

In spreading Lord Caitanya's movement, you and Mataji spare no pains in
traveling wherever necessary, and undergo so many hardships in a very
enthusiastic manner. Thank you very much for enlightening us untiringly.
On the auspicious occasion of your Vyas Puja, I will quote your own
composition, as I believe you are the living representation of these
lines...

We will defeat the night by the weapon of light, driving worng away with
right, freeing the world from fright, tasting the ultimate delight.


thanks,
your servant,
Amala Gopi devi dasi & Sundar Ananda das.
