My dear Srila Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja. Please accept my humble obeisances!
All Glories to Your Holiness! All Glories to Srila Prabhupada!
Today is the most auspicious day of Your appearance. How I wish to be at Bhubaneswar today and hear Your glories. They are unfathomable. Although I never had a chance to have Your association personally, I strongly believe that You are in my heart eternally guiding me to be a simple person, just like a child. In my heart long ago I've accepted You as my siksa Guru.I most of the times fail to be a simple person. How many times You have emphasised not to be crooked.Hence I beg You today that I become simple hearted. You came mercifully first in the form of the book "The Embankment of Separation". I relished for the first time the topics of Gauranga Mahaprabhu with all my heart and soul.
You continued to give association through other books. Without Your mercy how could it ever be possible. Your devotion to Gopal jiu and Srila Prabhupada is incomparable. By Your mercy anything is possible for You are a maha bhagavata. How I wish to learn surrender, someday may be I will.
Maharaja, on this most auspicious day of Your appearance, I pray and beg for Your mercy to get some Guru Bhakti and in this way Radharani will be pleased someday. I pray for mercy that I'll continue devotional service and always be under Your guidance and shelter. Your children are exemplary, for they have dedicated their lives in Your service. I pray that I get such devotion at least by the end of this lifetime. Aspiring and again and again begging at Your Lotus Feet that You kindly shower a merciful glance upon me.
With all gratitude and deep respect.
Your most degraded and crooked daughter,
Radha Priya D. Dasi
Srila Gour Govinda
