nama oṁ viṣṇu pādāya kṛṣṇa preṣṭāya bhu-tale
śrīmate jayapatākā swamin iti nāmine
Respected Gurudev Śrīla Ācāryapāda,
On this most auspicious day of your Vyaspuja I beg to offer you prostrate obeisance, unlimited times.
bhārata-bhūmite haila manuṣya-janma yāra
janma sārthaka kari' kara para-upakāra
(Cc. Ādi 9.41)
Though we have taken birth in Bhārat-bhūmi (India), we did not know how to do para-upkāra (helping others). By Your Divine Grace, we learn how to do the highest para-upkāra. Chanting Hare Kṛṣṇa Mahā-mantra is the highest para-upakāra of all, which can break rebirth and leads towards Kṛṣṇa and His Dhāma (residence), Vaikuṇṭha, where a soul will get eternal peace and bliss. I have learnt this Mahāmantra by your causeless mercy. You made a path to Goloka Vṛndāvāna from all sinful conditioned souls by re-establishing Nāmahaṭṭa Saṅga, which Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya Mahāprabhu inaugurated five hundred years back. Thus a fallen soul like me can easily find the way to eternal peace.
Keep me at your lotus feet, always serving your desire. Jai organiser of Nāmahaṭṭa Saṅga, Śrīmad Ācāryapāda Śrī Jayapatākā Swami Guru Mahārāja ki Jai! Jai! Jai!!!
Your fool & fallen servant,
Citesvara Dāsa Adhikārī
