Harikṣetra Dāsā (Bangalore - Sri Sri Narasimha Giridhari Mandir - India)

Gurudeva, 

Kindly accept my respectful obeisance.

All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda 

All glories to Śrī Guru and Gaurāṅga 

Your untiring preaching endeavor and unconditional distribution of mercy to devotees and future devotees is simply beyond imagination. Your determination to please Śrīla Prabhupāda, Guru Paramparā and Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu against all odd as it is an immense inspiration for me. I pray that I imbibe at least a fraction of Your mood to please You and Śrīla Prabhupāda. 

Śrīla Prabhupāda write in Purport to Bhagavad-Gītā 9.29 “A person who is thus always engaged in the service of the Lord or is always thinking and planning how to serve the Lord is to be considered completely liberated at present, and in the future is going back home, back to Godhead, is guaranteed”. I don’t know what devotional service is, what will please Lord Kṛṣṇa. But Gurudeva, You have very mercifully ordered the devotees of Bengaluru to make “Bengaluru the first Kṛṣṇa Conscious city”, “preach united” and “make more devotees, happy devotees”. These instructions of Yours have given meaning to my life. I beg and pray that my heart always be fixed on Your transcendental instructions. Even an attempt to the extent of a squirrel to please You can make my life successful. 

Māyā is very powerful and I am constantly being beaten by the whips of Māyā. I beg and pray at Your lotus feet that my mind be fixed on executing Your instructions and not think of anything else. May my power to think and strength to function and all other faculties be completely used in your divine service. 

Your unworthy servant, 
Harikṣetra Dāsā
