My Great Big Fortune!
All Glories to Sri Guru and Gauranga!
Please may I offer my humblest dandavat pranams at the dust of your lotus feet.
My dear Guru Maharaja,
In the past weeks we have been showered everyday with your poignant memories of the services you have so selflessly offered to Paramgurudeva, your dearmost Guru Maharaja, Srila Bhakti Dayita Madhava Goswami Maharaja.
Through these I have learned so much of what it means to be a real disciple, your complete dedication in serving the Vaisnavas, and your realisation that all comes to you is to be endured.
In the year that has passed, from my last offering, I realise that I am no doubt going backwards in terms of rendering any service, and, indeed, praying that maybe something that was offered was accepted. I know I have lifetimes to go to become any semblance of a disciple.
On this day, your Divine Vyasa Puja, I pray to you with all my heart for the loving attachment to chanting the Holy Names, for all bad thoughts to go of others and for the constant yearning of sadhu-sanga and good association. I am fully aware that I have such a long way to go, and I pray always for this hope to never dwindle.
To read of your glories through the devotees offerings has helped again too to known you a little better. I pray too that you will accept our offering for you of a small program in your honour.
Lastly I pray that I will be come closer to you in the following days, months, years...
With deep gratitude and affection
Your lowest servant,
Candrika devi dasi
Jai Guru Maharaja
