Rama Lakṣmaṇa Dāsa Adhikārī (Bhubaneswar - India)

O my Supreme Worshipful Master,

On this auspicious appearance day of your Divine Grace, I offer my respectful obeisance’s at your lotus feet and also offer millions and millions of obeisance’s to them whom you have accepted as your material Father & Mother. Because on this auspicious day they helped sākṣād paraṁ brahma to come to this planet, by whose mercy (yours) the people of every part of the world are chanting Mahā-mantra.

I am so foolish that I do not have enough intelligence to glorify your activities, because “ācāryaṁ māṁ vijānīyān nāvamanyeta karhicit / na martya-buddhyāsūyeta sarva-deva-mayo guruḥ”. Śrīmad Bhāgavatam says Guru is exactly like the Supreme Personality of Godhead. As the activities of the Supreme Personality of Godhead are acintya, the activities and pastimes of the spiritual master are also acintya. So I am fully unable to glorify your activities.

O my Supreme worshipful Master, patita-pavana, deliverer of conditioned living entities, Ocean of Mercy, you have given me the chance to see your lotus feet and without any hesitation you have accepted me as a disciple. There is nothing more fortunate for me because.

O patita-pāvana, Ocean of mercy, I have no intelligence to understand your activities, so how I will understand Kṛṣṇa and what sevā will I do to HIM? So by remembering your lotus feet and by chanting the Mahā-mantra with my family, I am living happily in this material world. By your mercy I am able to read. 

On this auspicious day, this is my prayer at your lotus feet. O Ocean of forgiveness, forgive all my aparādhas and give me a chance to see your lotus feet, which are the most auspicious things in my life.

Jaya Śrīla Ācāryapāda,

One of your fallen servant,
Rama Lakṣmaṇa Dāsa Adhikārī
