Dear Śrīla Ācāryapāda,
Please accept my respectful obeisances. All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda! All glories to Śrī Śrī Rādhā Mādhava! All glories to Śrīdhāma Māyāpur!
On this auspicious day when the world has gifted to have your appearance, I am overflowing with the thoughts of your wonderful personality which constantly reminds me of Śrīla Prabhupāda and Śrī Śrī Pañca-tattva.
Śrīla Prabhupāda, “The real saint is he who is most addicted to Śrī Kṛṣṇa”. W hen your voice resounds in the Candrodaya Mandir hall “Nitāi Gaura Premānande Hari Hari bol! I remember these words. You are fully absorbed in the pastimes of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and you are distributing that premānanda to everyone freely.
When I see the Gurukula children running to see you with garlands in their hands and big smiles on their faces, a great hope swells in my heart about the golden tomorrow of Vaiṣṇava samūha.
Your kīrtanas, your lectures, your stories-everything-give a wonderful experience, reminding us the glorious saṅkīrtana līlās of Śrī Gaurāṅga Mahāprabhu.
Please accept my respectful obeisances a thousand times more at your lotus feet on this great day.
All glories to Śrīla Ācāryapāda!
Your humble servant,
Gurukula, Śrīdhāma Māyāpur.
