His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada is our guru, param guru and parat-para guru, which means param param-guru and the main siksa- guru in the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. It is absolutely essential that we try to develop our relationship with Srila Prabhupada in a natural and faithful way. Writing homages glorifying him can create the emotion of attachment to Srila Prabhupada, which will open the doors of liberation.
I humbly request that every grand disciple and great grand disciple of Srila Prabhupada write some words of glorification of His Divine Grace. We can share how Srila Prabhupada’s books has changed our lives and has given us new inspiration. Some of us may not feel confident to write in English as it is not our first language, but to express ourselves in words is a commitment. And we should at least try to express our appreciation. We should take advantage of this opportunity to display our commitment to the Founder-Acarya His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
Srila Prabhupada is clearly the highest class of Vaishnava, an uttama bhagavat, a jivan mukta maha purusa, satyavesa avatara, a personal associate of Radha and Krishna, Krishna parikara.
Our position as kanistha bhaktas and madhyam bhaktas is to assist the uttama bhakta, just as the hand assists the body. This has been stated by Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura.
In Srila Prabhupada’s Service,
Partha Sarathi Das Goswami
