Dear Śrīla Ācāryapāda,
Please accept my most humble obeisances at the dust of your lotus feet.
On this most auspicious day of your appearance, I wish to put my life at the service of your servants. Everyone wants to achieve life’s ultimate goal, but due to being absorbed in the material energy we waste our time with sense gratification. Through the study of Vedic literatures one comes to KṚṢṆA consciousness. Thus one engages in devotional service, abhidheya. We are always in a distressed condition of life, and an intelligent man naturally becomes inquisitive. Vedic literatures are meant to free the conditioned soul from the miserable conditions of material existence. Please Śrīla Ācāryapāda blesses me with your mercy so that I may always remain fixed distributing Śrīla Prabhupāda’s books until the day I leave my body. Only through your mercy can this be possible, by pleasing you only, can I please KṚṢṆA. All of my works, efforts and labour are useless 0’s if they don’t become attached to the number 1 of pleasing you.
All glories to you patita-pāvana Śrīla Ācāryapāda! The saviour of the most fallen and wretched souls like me. This servant of your servants prays at your blessed lotus feet.
You’re most fallen servant,
Arca Avatāra Dāsa Brahmacārī
