Vyasa Puja Offerings 2023: Makhancora Dasa Prabhu

Makhancora Dasa Prabhu

nama om visnu-padaya krsna-presthaya bhu-tale srimate bhaktivedanta-svamin iti namine namas te sarasvate deve gaura-vani-pracarine nirvisesa-sunyavadi-pascatya-desa-tarine vyasa puja

I offer my respectful obeisances unto His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who is very dear to Lord Krsna on this earth, having taken shelter at His lotus feet.

My respectful obeisances are unto you, O spiritual master, servant of Sarasvati Gosvami. You are kindly preaching the message of Lord Caitanyadeva and delivering the Western countries, which are filled with impersonalism and voidism.

O rascal mind, just worship the lotus feet of Srila Prabhupada, which make one fearless.

Srila Prabhupada, your name is Abhay, one who has no fear. And your name is also Caranaravinda, which are the lotus feet of Lord Krsna. You take shelter at Krsna’s lotus feet and that is why you fear nothing. Let us at this most auspicious and glorious day of your divine appearance in this world, and all the other days of our lives, meditate on your lotus feet, which are the transcendental ship that will enable us fortunate souls, who have obtained this rare human birth, to cross over this ocean of worldly existence through your transcendental and holy association.

Day and night I remain sleepless, suffering heat and cold, wind and rain, praise and infamy, pleasure and pain. For a bit of flickering happiness I vainly serve wicked and miserly men. Please engage me in your service, Srila Prabhupada.

There is no assurance of real happiness in all of one's wealth, youthfulness, sons, and family members. There is no assurance of any youthfulness, neither is there assurance of this material body itself. Nothing will exist as we see and desperately try to enjoy it in this realm of matter, trying hard and harder, simply to experience unavoidable reversals. Our beauty, health, wealth, the material life itself is tottering like a drop of water on a lotus petal; Srila Prabhupada, you have kindly, like a true friend and our always well-wisher, revealed these truths to us. You shake us by your thundering sweet voice: “Rascal, wake up!” And we do. Therefore, we shall always aspire to serve and worship your divine lotus feet.

I, lowly Makhancora dasa long and desire to engage myself in hearing your glories, chanting them, constantly remembering you and offering prayers to you, serving your lotus feet and the lotus feet of your sincere servants, worshiping you with flowers and incense and completely offering you my very self. Kindly hear my prayer and bestow a speck of dust of your lotus feet on my head.

Unqualified as I am, I took shelter of Govinda dasa and his song to be able to offer this humble homage unto you. You have glorified all the predecessor Acaryas and Vaisnavas beyond any limits and you are glorified millionfold more for doing so and for giving the matchless gift of Krsna consciousness to the world. Kindly excuse my offences and mercifully keep me as a menial servant of your dear servants.

All Glories to you, Srila Prabhupada! Hare Krsna!
