Prabhu: "http:///"]Gauranga, forever bestowed by the mercy of Shri Nityananda [URL="http:///", may your

 Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Jaya Guruparampara! All glories to the assembled devotees! Dear Swami Gaurangapada, please accept my humble obeisances. I am writing to you in advance for your Appearance Day on the 24th November as per the Vaishnava Calendar (22nd November as per the English Calendar). More »: ""

Gauranga: "http:///"]Nityananda-[URL="http:///"-nama-sahitya vitarine.

 This is a very special day, as the appearance in this world of a soul attached deeply to the Holy Names is very rare. Just a moments association of such a soul, is greater than the boons of liberation or, any material opulence or gift. In fact such a moments association, I feel, is the perfection of life.

 The sincere devotee, and especially guru, is a direct gift to the aspirant seeking mercy, a gift directly from Prabhu: "http:///"]Nityananda Prabhu. As Madhai lamented constantly in his heart, for his great offences, Nityananda [URL="http:///" instructed him to build a bathing place and offer respects to all devotees there. So too, Gurudeva is an ocean of mercy, and well-wisher for all fallen souls.

 To follow Gurudeva’s instruction to chant, chant, and chant and to seek shelter of Gauranga: "http:///" Mahaprabhu, is the essence I have gleaned from your pleasing words. A debt I can only repay by developing more and more sincerity for this spiritual path, day by day, till last breath. And to nurture graciousness and kindness as sentiments of the heart, for all souls, especially those lost in this place of suffering. And develop high regard for all saints (Vaishnava’s), whose path we must honor and never disrespect. By your mercy, such values are attainable.

 Dear Gurudeva, I wish you all blessings. Prabhu: "http:///"]Nityananda [URL="http:///" is well pleased with souls who surrender to His Lord. To meet you is the best grace I have been given. May our hearts become fully joyful, realizing the Lord’s great love. Thank you so much.

 Aspiring to be a sincere disciple, Nava dasa: "http:///"]Gauranga [URL="http:///".

Nityananda! Gauranga! Here Krishna! My dearest Swami Gaurangapada, Please accept my humble obeisances. All Glories to Shri Shri Guru and Gauranga. All glories to the devotees of the Lord.

 Your holy appearance in this world has touched many souls in the core of their hearts. You bestow the mercy of Lord Nityananda and Lord Gauranga on the fallen souls by propagating Their holy names. They are so merciful that no offenses are taken when we chant Their holy names and They deliver us from the dark ocean of material contamination. There is nothing greater in the three worlds than taking shelter at the lotus feet of Their pure devotee. « Less: ""]More »[URL=""

  Your very appearance in this world makes this planet a desirable place to be, even for the demigods. I pray that I am allowed to sit eternally at your lotus feet, either in this world, the heavenly planets or the hellish planets, because wherever you go Lord Krishna: "http:///"]Nityananda will be present to lift your disciples into the ocean of love for Lord Gauranga and Lord Shri [URL="http:///".

 My dearest Guru Maharaja, I pray that Lord Krishna: "http:///"]Nityananda always bestows His mercy upon you and continues giving you the gift of the highest perfection of love for Gauranga [URL="http:///".

Gauranga: "http:///"]Gauranga nama dhama bhakta lila pracarine, Nityananda [URL="http:///" nama sahitya vitarine.”

 Gurudev (from Saranagati)

 Gurudeva, give to this servant just one drop of mercy. I am lower than a blade of grass. Give me all help. Give me strength. Le me be as you are, without desires and aspirations.

 I offer you all respects, for thus I may have the energy to know you correctly. Then, by chanting the holy name in great ecstasy, all my offenses will cease.

 When will such mercy fall to this one who is weak and devoid of intelligence?  Allow me to be with you.

 If you examine me, you will find no qualitites. Your mercy is all that I am made of. If you are not merciful unto me I can only weep, and I will not be able to maintain my life.

 Shri Guru is the direct manifestation of the mercy of Lord Nityananda: "http:///". Everything in the material and spiritual world exists because of the mercy of Shri Balaram. The material manifestation rests on the hoods of lord Ananta, Lord Balaram maniftests himself as the bed, the clothes, the ornaments, infact everything used in the lord’s service in the spiritual and material world. Likewise, everything in the spiritual and material endeavours of a soul depends entirely on the mercy of Shri Guru.

 Oh! most merciful spiritual mentor, I thank you very very much for taking charge of this foolish and most fallen jiva-atma. The most important relationship that exists in the creation for a soul, is his relationship with his Shri Guru- because it is only he who can take him out of this cycle of birth and death, this place of misery and sorrow, this place of envy and hatred back to his original consitutional position of serving and loving. I take this day as an opportunity to thank you very much for being a most loving Spiritual Father. Like all children at times I have been a good sincere soul endeavouring to surrender and at times been attacked by the demons of doubts and mayadevi attacking because of my weak spiritual strength, but under all circumstances you have most patiently and lovingly tolerated me and only helped me to improve. I pray to you to bless me so that I can follow all your instructions with the discipline required from a disciple - I request you to forgive my countless offenses.

 Dearmost Gurudev you have shown me hope and light by bestowing the most merciful names of Gauranga: "http:///"]Nityananda and Gauranga. You are an ocean of mercy and kindness and I have realised that the way to please my Shri Guru is to chant more and more of these two merciful names, Nityananda, Gauranga, Nityananda, [URL="http:///"!

 Shri Guru Karuna Sindhu, Adhama janara bandh

Lokanatha lokera jibana

ha, ha, Prabhu: "http:///" kara daya, deha mora pada-chaya,

ebe jasa ghusuk tribhuvana.

 O Spiritual master, ocean of mercy and friend of the fallen souls, you are the teacher of everyone and the life of all people. O master! Be merciful unto me, and give me the shade of your lotus feet. May your glories now be proclaimed throughout the three worlds.

 I pray to their Lordships to keep you in good health and offer my heartfelt respects and love unto your lotus feet on this most auspicious day.

 Thank you very very much,

Your servant forever,

Preeti Nityananda: "http:///" dasi.

I continually thank Shri Nityananda: "http:///" Prabhuji for bringing you into my life as my most beloved Spiritual Master. How I am so unworthy for such mercies is beyond words, for I have done nothing to deserve such mercy.

 I have hurt you time and again with my disobedience and hesitations to your orders and sanctions, yet you continue to be patient with me, just as a beloved Father is with his young son. While your words of discipline hurts my soul, I continue to count myself honored that you would discipline such a hard hearted devil such as myself. Your patience with my behavior in the past shows your immense love for even the lowest of the Lord’s creatures, how much more for one who is aspiring to become a devotee. Your mercy to allow your continued association brings nothing less than tear to my eyes as I dwell upon your supreme mercy and tolerance for my spiritual advancement and eternal condition.

 Words cannot express how much your pure association and leadership means to me. I have learned such exalted knowledge from your lotus feet, something I would have learned no where else. You entrusted with me your teachings, and your heart here in America, trusting me to farther your teachings on the American soil so that others can learn of your great mercy and knowledge. It is through your strength that I rise every morning and have the courage to approach the lotus feet of Shri Shri Nitai-Gaurahari, Whom you named yourself, serving them as I would serve you.

 I pray that your Vyasa Puja is the greatest so far in the brief time that the Lord Himself has given you to all of your disciples. I pray for another hundred years in your most beautiful service, so that I to may attain a little knowledge and gain a small glimpse of Their Lordship’s lotus feet. My heart always dwells at your lotus feet, praying for the day that I may come to you to render the service required to push this Gauranga: "http:///" Dharma around this material world.

 My heart rejoices in the Gayatris, and the chanting of the Holy Mantra-Rajas. Your strength to preach farther a field gives only the slightest of pleasures, but all is done as an offering to your lotus feet. Without you in my heart, none of this has meaning, but only the mantra-rajas give me purpose and your most sublime Pranama which eternally dwells closest to my heart.

 May Their Lordships continue to bless you with the spiritual riches that certainly dwell in your heart. I pray that the strong arms of Shri Nityananda: "http:///" Prabhuji continue to shelter you in His supreme mercy. I pray that Shri Gaurahari continues to lead and inspire you as you lead me into Their eternal service.

 Your eternal servant;
