nama oṁ viṣṇu pādāya kṛṣṇa preṣṭāya bhu-tale
śrīmate jayapatākā swamin iti nāmine
My Dear Guru Mahārāja,
Please accept my humble obeisances. I never saw your Divine Grace in person, but I completely surrendered unto your lotus feet just after listening to your “CRY FOR KṚṢṆA” Immediately after hearing the cry I felt as if you were directly exhorting me to CRY for Kṛṣṇa. I began with 4 rounds and jumped on to 16 within 30 days. By your grace I am able to chant 32 comfortably. Sitting on my altar besides Śrīla Prabhupāda, You guide me day by day to become pure and surrendered.
I was like a dog in the street before coming into association of your pure devotees. Let me now become a faithful dog at your doorstep. A dog that will remain alert in the service of his master even at the risk of being poisoned or shot.
Your little servant,
