HpS - AgtSP. Please accept our humble obeisances.
Thank you for this annual report, birthday greeting.
Yet, the Annual Report is a simple form to be filled in here at the Blog.
To open it touch the Word 'Report' above.
It is mentioned in our original Guru-tattva document and must be filed by our Vyasapuja day.
Disciples can file later and we will look those Reports on Gaura-purnima.
For more general Vyasa-puja, birthday greetings we must ask people send them again later, after a few weeks or a month or so because we cannot look at them all immediately and we must clear them from our Blog folder so that we can see other timely news.
Look for you news soon.
So much to learn but it is eternal knowledge.
Dear Guru Maharaja,
please accept my humble obeisances on your lotus feet.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to write to you on the auspicious day of your appearance. I am very fortunate first of all you entered my life and heart.
In your enlightening association is hope for everyone and with all your travelling you bestow the ultimate benefit upon people in general.
Thank you for your austere and sacrificial life,
Thank you for your dedication to follow your spiritual masters footsteps.
In Srimad Bhagavatam (8.7.44) it is said that great personalities almost always accept voluntary suffering because of the suffering of people in general. This is considered the highest method of worshiping the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is present in every one's heart.
Here is an explanation of how those engaged in activities for the welfare of others are very quickly recognized by the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The Lord says in Bhagavad-gita ( 18.68-69 ) ya idam paramam guhyam mad-bhaktesv abhidhasyati, na ca tasman manusyesu kascin me priya-krttamah, "One who preaches the message of Bhagavad-gita to My devotees is most dear to Me..."
There are different kinds of welfare activities in this material world, but the supreme welfare activity is the spreading of Krishna consciousness. ...if one tries to spread Krishna consciousness all over the world, he should be understood to be performing the best welfare activity. The Lord is automatically very pleased with him. If the Lord is pleased with him, what is left for him to achieve?
Krsna says in Srimad Bhagavatam (10.80.34):
I, the soul of all beings, am not as satisfied by ritual worship, brahminical initiation, penances or self-discipline as I am by faithful service rendered to one's spiritual master.
How dear you must be to Krsna for your faithful service to Srila Prabhupada. You are always absorbed in your service to your spiritual master, setting such an exalted example for all your disciples to follow.
Gurudeva it is my sincere desire that I may be able to assist you, in some small way, in your service to Srila Prabhupada. Please allow me to stay in devotional service and please allow me to stay close to your lotus feet.
I can never actually express to you how much I appreciate you and all that you give me and how much effort you give to try to teach me. I can only try to serve you, and I sincerely pray that one day I will have no desire other than your service.
Aspiring to be your eternal servant, Murari dasa
