Dear Śrīla Guru Mahārāja,
Please accept our most respectful obeisances in the dust of your lotus feet on this Divine Appearance Day of yours. All Glories, All Glories to your Holiness.
All Glories, All Glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda, the Founder Ācārya of International Society for Kṛṣṇa Consciousness in whose propagated path you traverse so wonderfully despite the so called physiological constraint you are to experience due to your medical condition.
You are indeed a Mahā Bhāgavata devotee who has transcended all physiological limitations beyond general realm of tolerance. It is our great fortune that we (Śrīvāsa Nimāi Dāsa & Sudhā Rādhikā Devī Dāsī) are your initiated disciples due to Your causeless mercy. Further, it is that very causeless mercy that you have showered upon our daughter Bhaktin Sravya when you took her under your shelter.
There have been many changes in the last 1 year. Śrīvāsa Nimāi Dāsa having resigned the day-to-day job, is serving at ISKCON, Undavalli, Vijayawada temple as a Vice President by the mercy of Your Holiness. Every endeavour is being made to get the disciples of Your Godbrothers to return to the temple fold as Your Holiness desires. Till now, by Your causeless mercy, a few have kindly started responding and participating in the temple activities.
By Your causeless mercy Śrīvāsa Nimāi Dāsa has started delivering Bhagavad-gītā lectures in Telugu (one śloka per day) that is being broadcast daily on both ETV Andhra Pradesh and ETV Telangana channels since mid-February. These channels have a pan Andhra Pradesh & Telangana viewership. Also, some Telugu speaking Indian bodied people living outside these states as well as outside India are watching these episodes.
Sudhā Rādhikā Devī Dāsī is managing the entire household at Hyderabad to facilitate Śrīvāsa Nimāi Dāsa serving at Vijayawada yātrā. Further, by Your Holiness’s mercy Sudhā Rādhikā Devī Dāsī is actively involved in training Children and conducting Nāmahaṭṭas at various places for women (around 3 to 4 days a week).
Bhaktin Śravyā is seriously endeavouring to become a Judge of Indian Judiciary with a prayer at Your lotus feet that she may become one (if the Guru Paramparā wishes) and fulfill the prophecy of Sacīdānanda Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura Mahārāja that someone with tilaka on the forehead will deliver a judgement in the future.
Bhakta Kṛṣṇa Śravaṇa (our son) has left his cricket (despite doing very well) and started focusing on South Indian Mṛdaṅga as he was missing the connect with Lord Kṛṣṇa in that Śrīla Prabhupāda art. He is seriously pursuing devotional music with a desire to please Lord Kṛṣṇa.
It is by Your Holiness’ causeless mercy that we are all able to remain Kṛṣṇa Conscious despite all our frailties. We sincerely pray to Their Ever-Merciful Lordships, Lord Narasiṁhadeva and the Guru Paramparā to give us many, many more years of your vāṇī and vapu association to purify us.
Praying at your lotus feet to bless us to remain Kṛṣṇa Conscious and guide us through your causeless mercy that has kept us on this Kṛṣṇa Conscious path, we remain...
