Dear Gour Govinda Maharaja
Hare Krishna. Please, accept my humble dandavat pranams.
I was not so fortunate to receive your direct association, but my beloved Gurudeva gave me under the care of your faithful disciple, Sripad Bhaktivedanta Shuddhadvaiti Maharaj. I was fortunate enough to travel with him trying to serve Gurudeva and had a lot of opportunities to hear your hari-katha from him. But it was never enough, because through this hari-katha I felt that I start to develop relationships with you, so much so, that now I accept you as one of my beloved siksa Gurus.
So I feel, that this is your mercy also – to give me under the affectionate guidance of your disciple. How many times I was praying to receive this special mercy of yours, sitting on the ‘hot seat’! And now, when it is coming to me through your disciple, the question arise – am I able to swallow? Yes. But am I able to follow? I hope so and pray to you on this special day and always – please, give me strength to do what my spiritual guides want me to do, putting aside all unwanted desires that i still have. I’m full of anarthas and I pray to you – please, help me, please, cut my false ego as cucumbers, please, enable me to serve purely my Gurudeva and Vaisnavas and understand desires of their heart.
Humbly aspiring to become dasanudasi,
В скромной надежде стать слугой слуги слуги,
