Rohiṇīja Dāsa Brahmacārī ( - Bolivia)

oṁ ajñāna-timirāndhasya jñānāñjana-śalākayā
cakṣur unmīlitaṁ yena tasmai śrī-gurave namaḥ

nama oṁ viṣṇu pādāya kṛṣṇa preṣṭāya bhu-tale
śrīmate jayapatākā swamin iti nāmine

All glories to you! Beloved spiritual master. You are the bonafide representative of Kṛṣṇa. Having found you, O master, in this material world that is full of faults and misery, is an inconceivable causeless mercy.

Śāstra says:

yasya prasādād bhagavat-prasādo
yasyāprasādān na gatiḥ kuto 'pi
dhyāyan stuvaṁs tasya yaśas tri-sandhyaṁ
vande guroḥ śrī-caraṇāravindam

“By the mercy of the Spiritual Master, one receives the benediction of Kṛṣṇa. Without the grace of the Spiritual Master, one cannot make any advancement.”

O Master, please engage me always in your service so that I will be able to understand the scriptures and surrender constantly to your service.

sākṣād-dharitvena samasta-śāstrair
uktas tathā bhāvyata eva sadbhiḥ
kintu prabhor yaḥ priya eva tasya
vande guroḥ śrī-caraṇāravindam

Oh Master! Without your mercy it is not possible to have any good quality. Please excuse all my offenses at your lotus feet.

Your unworthy servant,
Rohiṇīja Dāsa Brahmacārī
