Dear Śrīla Ācāryapāda,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda.
On your most auspicious appearance day, please accept my repeated obeisances. Please forgive my offenses.
I always remember our first meeting. The police sirens were roaring, and they arrested you, (rather only tried and must always fail), you were; as usual greatly disturbing the slumber of the sleeping souls.
This is the mood of our beloved Spiritual Master, Śrīla Prabhupāda. It was through seeing this mood so nicely exhibited in Your Divine Grace that I took shelter in you. Although I myself have no qualification or ability, in any sphere to engage in devotional service, I want your kind mercy and help and guidance to do so. You are fully perfect in pleasing Him. I have come here to learn the art of rendering devotional service from you. If I could have one “anu” of your devotion to Śrīla Prabhupāda, I would be satisfied. Kindly allow me to offer some activities which will be a contribution to pleasing our most beloved eternal father, Śrīla Prabhupāda. Just as a little brother becomes inspired when he sees the service his sincere brother renders to their father, yet the younger has himself nothing to offer, so similarly, being inspired by Your Divine Grace, I am begging from your spiritual assets for something to offer, in imitation, to Śrīla Prabhupāda.
