nama oṁ viṣṇu pādāya kṛṣṇa preṣṭāya bhu-tale
śrīmate jayapatākā swamin iti nāmine
All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda are my beloved Śrīla Ācāryapāda,
Please accept my most humble obeisance’s at your divine lotus feet.
My beloved Gurudeva, I offer you this tiny offering, although difficult for me, having not a the least bit of intelligence there flows not a single word to properly praise such an exalted personality; I’m so useless that I cannot describe your unlimited qualities rebounding with so much potency, that I wonder, without proper understanding of your identity, and I ask myself : What a great soul has come to this miserly world to give me his causeless mercy, and what did I do to have such a kind and wonderful father as you?
Oh my beloved Master! you are so pure, just like clear water, brilliant as the sun, and when I meditate upon you beloved face I feel very happy, your blue eyes are as beautiful as the immense sky, plenty of purity in which I wander and they are so wonderful because with them you are seeing the original transcendental form of Lord Kṛṣṇa. From your beautiful lotus mouth flows the nectar amongst nectars telling the pastimes of Lord Nityānanda and Lord Caitanya; words that reach my heart, penetrate my ears, deaf due to mundane gratification, words in which I would like to be absorbed. Your body is so wonderful and transcendental that I do not understand it in its real form, but in the core of my heart I know that you are my eternal and beloved spiritual master and real father.
My beloved Śrīla Ācāryapāda, When will I leave once and forever this ocean, of the material world, full of darkness? It causes me much suffering when I immerse in this material world, therefore my mind is constantly bewildered and my body drags me towards material gratification and I am so foolish that I let this go on; but, by your grace I will be freed from it. Therefore I ask and I beg from you to help me to leave this material world.
JAYA NITĀI GAURA
JAYA ŚRĪLA ĀCĀRYAPĀDA!! PATITA-PĀVANA!!
Your eternal and very fallen servant,
Mādhavānandinī Devī Dāsī
