Srila Gurudeva is calling...
All glories to Sri Sri Guru and Gauranga!
Dandavat Pranams Dear Devotees,
In his Vyasa Puja address – Hilo, Hawai , Srila Gurudeva concluded with the following words -
“On this special day, I pray to my Gurudeva and our entire guru-parampara up to Lord Brahma, to all the associates of Sri Sri Radha-Krsna and to all the associates of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Sri Nityananda prabhu. I pray that they will sprinkle their mercy upon all of you.
I pray that they will also be merciful to all the devotees in the world, wherever they may be, who are giving their puspanjali (offering their moods, in the form of flowers and beautiful words of praise) today. I pray that they will bestow their mercy, even to those who are not giving any puspanjali, but simply remembering, wherever they are. I pray to all these associates of the Lord, that they will be merciful and take away the entirety of your anarthas, that they will place vraja-prema, vraja-bhakti, in your hearts, and that they will sprinkle upon you our goal of life.”
Srila Gurudeva's heart overflowed with compassion and boundless affection for us. The year 2021 marks his centennial, his 100th divine appearance.
For all the affection he showered;
For all the teachings he imparted;
For all the loving chastisements he meted;
For all the stone-like hearts he melted;
And for the one-pointed greed for Radha-dasyam.
We can never really repay him, however out of his own munificence, Srila Gurudeva will be easily pleased even with our feeble attempts to offer him something as a token of loving gratitude.
