To shrila Prabhupada

namaste saraswati-deve gouravane pracharine

nirvishesha shunyavadi paschatya-desha tarine

namaste (obeisances unto you); saraswati-deve (Shrila Prab-hupada, disciple of Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur); goura vane (the message or vani of Gour, the "golden" Lord Chaitanyadeva); pracharine (you are preaching); nirvishesh (impersonalism); shunyavadi (voidism); paschatya-desh (in the Western world) tarine (deliver).

"Obeisances unto you, Shrila Prabhupada, (foremost) dis­ciple of Shrila Shri Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur. You are delivering the Western countries (infected with) the (false) impersonal and voidist philosophical doctrines by preaching the Krishna Conscious message of Lord Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu."

Flowers for Radha Krishna

Radha and Krishna the breath of my life, Standing on Yamuna's flow'r-bedecked shore, 'Neath blossoms of fragrant kadamba trees blooming, I've nothing but You and I want nothing more.

There in the splendidly sweet groves of Vraja, There, Youthful Lovers, I'll make a gold throne; There I will seat You in gem-studded glory, There in the woods where the tulasi tree's sown.

On Lord Shyamsundar's dark limbs I will offer Sweet-scented sandalwood pulp smeared with love. Gourangi's gold arms will be amply anointed, Your faces will beam like the moon-god above.

There will I fan You with peacock tail feathers, And harvest bright malati buds from the land; A garland I'll offer for Your Lordship's pleasure; I'll dwell at Your feet and await Your command.

(Based on the Bengali poem Sakhivrinde Vijnapti by Shrila Narottama das Thakur and versified by Shri Patita Pavana das)
