“Offerings on the eve of Vyāsa-pūjā”
Dear Śrīla Ācāryapāda,
First of all, on this auspicious ‘Vyāsa-pūjā’ day, please accept our humble and respectful obeisance unto Your Divine Grace. We were born in the darkest region of ignorance, but you are the spiritual masters who have shown us the light of transcendental knowledge. To that spiritual master we offer our respectful obeisances.
O Lord! Your Divine Grace is the friend of the fallen and the ocean of the mercy. Your Divine Grace is very dear to Lord Caitanya and to Lord Nityānanda as well. Therefore please situate us eternally at your lotus feet and please mercifully grant us the right to serve you.
In the past, an evil-influence swallowed the entire Gauḍīya-maṇḍala in the form of a bad community, and only by your mercy have we got an opportunity to get free from that evil influence. Please never let us forget your lotus feet for that.
Your divine grace has appeared on this earth only to deliver the fallen by distributing the pure holy name of the Lord. So, we pray unto you to please deliver us from this dreadful ocean of sins and from the darkness of ignorance as well. Please make us able to glorify the lotus feet of Their Lordships Śrī Śrī Rādhā-Mādhava and to perform devotional service and preaching activities. Please bestow your mercy upon us so that we can continue to serve your lotus feet and not be allured by the illusion of Kali.
O Śrīla Ācāryapāda, your glories are boundless, please deliver us from the clutches of māyā.
You’re most fallen devotees ISKCON,
