Offering to His Holiness Srila Prabhupada
by Matajis Ansuya, Baby Dinatarine and Prabhu Kiran
Dear Srila Prabhupada,
Please accept my most respectful obeisances.
nama om visnu-padaya krsna-presthaya bhu-tale
srimate bhaktivedanta-svamin iti namine
namas te sarasvate deve gaura-vani-pracarine
It's such a difficult endeavor to write you an offering. I am probably the most fallen soul on this planet. I try everyday to overcome my laziness and at least to chant my rounds and do some of your readings. I am still trying hard, but haven't managed to fully succeed.
I do not have enough words to thank you, as "thank you" is a very insignificant word for all your kind efforts in bringing us closer to the Lotus Feet of Sri Krishna for without coming to this movement I would never have appreciated what it means to love and serve Thakurji.
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; please, Srila Prabhupada, let me never leave your lotus feet, because you are my only shelter and refuge.
Your insignificant servants,
Matajis Ansuya, Baby Dinatarine and Prabhu Kiran
