Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva.
This is in continuation of the previous offering titled "Srila Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj Vyasa Puja 2016", wherein we were hearing some of the glorifications of Maharaj, which were shared by the devotees in Sri Sri Radha Neel Madhav dham, Rajkot on the auspicious occasion of his Vyasa Puja. Now we shall hear further.
HG Anasuya Mataji from Minneapolis: (Referring to the Jantur prayers 3.31.11 and 12 from Srimad Bhagavatam, Mataji continued) These prayers show how the living entities' position is in contrast to that of Supreme Lord. And the living entity feels very repentant and he appreciates that, "Yet, the Lord is with me, You are right here beside me." The fact that Krishna is with the jiva inspite of all the ineberities in the jiva reminds me as to how although I am so useless, impious and fallen soul, driven by own desires - yet somebody who is so pure, who is so fearless, who is so able - would choose to give me association - I am so incapable and don't deserve such an association, but the Lord is so kind and amazing to give me such an association.
So, in the same way, I had so many opportunities to meet with Maharaj and have Maharaj's good association in various places. At every place Maharaj, I feel that I have disregarded you. At the same time, you also like Krishna, were always there by our side. Though you are so elated, there is no reason for you to be in our side or be patient to with us. But despite all these things, you patiently, humbly stayed with us - never asked anything for yourself. I would like to say "Sorry" for that. And I would also request you to give a sense of humility and repentance to grow in us and for a steady service - not for ourselves - but for eligibility to glorify you. Because I have seen that Maharaj despite all the full qualifications in you, you always never stood in front of Prabhupada. You always kept Prabhupada in front of you. And even when so many devotees tried to glorify you, you just shooed it away and was fixed in your devotion to Prabhupada. So in disciplic succession, may I request you to bestow in us the humility and service attitude - eligibility to speak about your glorification - rather than ours. Hare Krishna.
Krishna willing, we shall continue to hear further glories of Maharaj in the subsequent offering.
Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva,
Sudarshana devi dasi.
