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

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

This respectful prayer to Srila Prabhupada is said many times a day. We sing it when we begin kirtans, we say it when offering food, when offering our obeisances to the Deities. We must always remember that it was Srila Prabhupada's mercy of coming to the West that enabled us to begin re-linking with our constitutional nature, Krsna consciousness.

JAYA SRILA PRABHUPADA!
