Dear Spiritual Master,
Please accept my humble obeisances,
All glories to Srila Prabhupada, all glories to your service to Srila Prabhupada!
This special day of your auspicious appearance is an opportunity to express my gratitude to you. I appreciate so much your example, your steadiness, and your commitment to serve the mission of your spiritual master, Srila Prabhupada. I am grateful because you accept the trouble to take care of ordinary people like me who are full of problems and attachments. This is certainly the proof that the spiritual master is the representative of Krsna, as Krsna is merciful and give shelter to all soul that approach Him. You as well gave me an opportunity to make part of this family, to feel part of this movement, and to feel the shelter and mercy, with no discrimination, of the Lord.
It is certainly very rare to find such genuine movement, and very fortunate to get in touch with a genuine sincere devotee as you are, and even more astonishing that such devotee accept you as his disciple. I have no doubt of your are a bonafide teacher that can enlighten me in regard to the Supreme destination back to Krsna, as you humbly follow the parampara system. You are a true follower of your spiritual master, and mercifully you share your devotion with us to inspire us and help us to also surrender and devote ourselves to Krsna. Such an unselfish and pure endeavor melts my heart, binds me and inspires me to try to become your servant. Thank you so much for all the personal troubles you accept in order to help us, in a sincere attempts to help us to come back to Krsna. You do all this only by the impetus of serving and pleasing Guru and Krsna. I can see that clearly.
I pray I can take more and more seriously the chance I got, that is unique, and that can save me from all miseries. Moreover, it can give me the transcendental gift of reviving my eternal relationship with God, Krsna. This path back to Krsna is only possible under your guidance and shelter. Otherwise, why Krsna would accept me? By following your instructions, by serving without vanity, by inquiring sincerely and submissively, by trying my best to please you. I am like a foolish child, that thought she knew many things, but now understands its poor situation. It is my desire to grow as Krsna's servant under your guidance and shelter. I will use whatever intelligence and sincerity is in my hearts to improve in this path, as there nothing more valuable in my life. I wish to increase my faith in you, in Krsna the Personality of Godhead and in the holy names, as this is my only real opportunity to surrender fully my heart and it is the price to advance. I feel now as wet wood that fire can hardly burn. Although I am a very insignificant person, Krsna has taken me under His shelter, has given me all I need to progress, but I remain attached to so many things. At least I see more clearly my condition, and I don't think I am very "good". So now I wish to humbly progress in this path in which you are my guide and shelter.
Your insignificant servant, Nitya Kisori devi dasi
The photos are from a little altar I did in this aupicious day to remember you. It is small thing because I am the only disciple here, and almost all my friends are at home for Christmas. It is a nice opportunity to have an introspective day.
