Dear Srila Prabhupada,
please accept my fallen obeisance's at your lotus feet.
I desired to compile a book, in order to give everyone an opportunity to hear, glorify and remember some of your transcendental qualities and activities. Now you are mercifully manifesting it to me.
offering respect to the spiritual master means to remember some of his
activities. Some of his activities. Just like you offer respect to
your spiritual master, namas te sarasvate deve gaura-vani-pracarine.
This is the activity of your spiritual master, that he is preaching
the message of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu and he's a disciple of
Sarasvati Thakura. Namas te sarasvate. You should pronounce it
sarasvate, not sarasvati. Sarasvati is the, my spiritual master. So
his disciple is sarasvate. Sarasvate deve gaura-vani-pracarine. These
are the activities. What is the activities of your spiritual master?
He's simply preaching the message of Lord Caitanya. That is his
Lecture, 1.2.2 London, August 10, 1971]
When we offer respect to the spiritual master or anyone, we glorify his transcendental qualities. That is glorification. Just like we offer respect to Krsna, glorify Him. So this is very important process, glorify the spiritual master by his activities, what he is actually doing. That is glorification. [Srimad-Bhagavatam Lecture, 1.2.3 Rome, May 27, 1974]
Thank you for allowing such an offensive person as myself to be your instrument. Please accept this small offering of submission to your most kind and loving will. I pray that I can always hear your message, even though I may be suffering the reactions of my sinful life in various demoniac species.
Your fallen servant Mukunda dasa. (27th of September 2001)
