108 Vyasa-Puja 2004
by Gopijana dasa
Dearest Srila Prabhupada,
When I first saw your smiling face effulgent,
I knew somehow there would be a place
of shelter, undeserved kindness and
love unconditional, for this fallen soul at your feet.
A struggle I knew if easy would guarantee nothing.
I pray each day for my sufferings.... fill my heart
with love and knowing, with a longing to see
again your face, so beautifully glowing.
Thank you Srila Prabhupada for saving this wretched
worthless thief, my only hope one day to succeed
in fullfilling your instruction.
Your aspiring servant....
