Vyāsa-pūjā

Pañcaratna Dāsa (ACBSP) (Mayapur - India)

Dear Jayapatākā Mahārāja,

Please accept my prostrated obeisances millions of times in the dust of your lotus feet. All glories to our eternal father and spiritual guide Jagat guru Śrīla Prabhupāda.

Today I was reflecting on the inner spiritual nature of our ISKCON institution, the grand family of devotees fathered by Śrīla Prabhupāda and his spiritual children. And within this family I could see that certain elder brothers were especially empowered in different ways. And amongst all I considered that you, Śrīla Ācāryapāda, are particularly empowered as an ever-present voice of unity.

Śrīla Prabhupāda told us that the measure of our love for him will be seen in how we cooperate together. Thus, I can deduce that your love for Śrīla Prabhupāda must be great indeed as I have personally seen how you have strongly endeavored to create cooperation in all circles of ISKCON. Of course, there are unlimitedly more transcendental qualities that you possess, but this one in particular stands out as I think of the auspicious day of your Vyāsa-pūjā celebration.

I pray at the lotus feet of Śrīla Prabhupāda that I may increasingly obtain the special mercy of your association in service to Śrī Māyāpur Dhāma and Saṅkīrtana movement of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. Although I am unworthy. I feel hopeful my prayer will be fulfilled, as I know you are certainly the friend of the most fallen.

Your fallen servant,
Pañcaratna Dāsa
