nama oṁ viṣṇu pādāya kṛṣṇa preṣṭāya bhu-tale
śrīmate jayapatākā swamin iti nāmine
My dear Śrīla Ācāryapāda,
On this wonderful day of your appearance, all the fallen souls of the material world rejoice because of your presence in this world, we can taste the happiness that a lost child tastes in the darkest night upon finding his beloved father. A great personality is worthy of worship, but I do not find words to glorify your unlimited qualities. Oh eternal father! Give me strength to follow your instructions.
Before knowing you, my life had no sense. I was alone and bewildered this material world. Thanks to Kṛṣṇa’s mercy, you have appeared in my life and now it has an actual meaning. Please. Merciful Master, give me shelter under the shade of your lotus feet.
Your causeless mercy is reaching all living being, just as the rain refreshes the fields during drought.
All glories to this wonderful day of your transcendental appearance, that Lord Gaurāṅga.
You’re most fallen and insignificant servant,
Mantrasāra Dāsa Brahmacāri
