All Glories to Srila Prabhupada!
by Tamohara dasa
It is only possible to deliver a conditioned jiva from Maya,
By divine intervention of God.
To a realm that is higher;
Ecstatically deep and broad.
An ocean of liquid love!
In His mercy, to bring us there,
He sent us Srila Prabhupada.
Sri Krsna Caitanya desired to moisten the dried-up souls.
To acheive it,
He not only comes Himself, But Nitai-Balarama empowered Srila Prabhupada,
To bountiful conceive it.
A world encircling garland of prema-nama-sankirtana!
All Glory to Lord Gaura Krsna! All Glory to Lord Sankarsana!
The envious conditioned souls actually have no direct access to the Lord.
But by His sweet will, just as the ambassador represents the king,
The Guru is the personal embodied mercy of Lord Gaura.
That person who would set the dove of his love of Krsna awing,
Can do so, by the expanded mercy of Srila Prabhupada!
You fortunate persons around the world,
Just hear the words of Srila Prabhupada!
His vibrations have the power to deliver you from all fears.
Just take, just try!
You will soon become freed from all false tears.
Amazed, you will say, "He did not lie!"
All Glories to Sri Jagad-guru, our Srila Prabhupada!
Like Sri Nityananda delivers the Jagais and Madais of their envious curse,
Who in turn help spread His mercy throughout the entire universe!
Who is the original nitya-siddha founder-acarya of the society to deliver us back to God?
Who gave us the sauce, chapter and verse?
It is only you, Our Eternal Master, Srila Prabhupada!
Prabhupada planted and maintains a mighty kalpavrksa tree of bhakti,
In fact, a world-wide forest of wish-fullfilling trees!
All the desires of the living entities are satisfied,
Our devotional service fixed.
Then Sri Krsna Caitanya Mahaprabhu is also satisfied.
Let us nourish the roots with our leaves,
And offer dandavats like sticks.
All Glories to the Devotees of Srila Prabhupada!
Sri Krsna Bless the servants of the servants of Prabhupada!
Who chant and preach determinedly, despite obstacle or strife.
For this is true charity, true knowledge, true yoga, true religion.
By such service, the fallen find pure love and blissful spiritual reunion!
They reawaken the soul of their life.
Gurudeva leads us on to a place where Lord Gauranga dwells.
No ordinary prema that!
Our obeisances again and again!
The Lord's hair shorn,
In a deep place by the Yamuna,
In the house of Kasi Misra,
Vipralambha and Sambhoga have a tug-of-war,
Causing Lord Caitanya's tears to well,
His heart to bend,
His love to soar,
His hairs to stand on end!
His beautiful reddish eyes...
His amazement never ends,
As He comprehends the heart of Radha,
His blissful blackish form deeply hid beneath Her yellow-golden glow...
How do even Western-born fools such as Tamoharadasa know?
By the Unequalled Mercy of Srila Prabhupada!
