Vyasa Puja Offering 2023

Vyasa Puja Offering 2023

Dear Srila Prabhupada,
Please accept my humble obeisances at the dust of Your lotus feet,
All glories to You!
All glories to Sri Guru and Gouranga!

My heart is filled with gratitude towards You for giving us Your incredible books, awesome classes, Vaisnava association, Holy Dhamas, Deities, Hare Krishna Maha Mantra, Vaisnava culture and the list goes on and on.

How can we ever repay You? How can we adequately repay You for Your kindness, thoughtfulness, mercy, blessings that are rescuing us from the dreadful ocean of repeated birth and death? Where would we be without You?

We are infinitely indebted to You for everything You have given us, and we better always remember it and never take it for granted.

I pray to never ever ever take it for granted.
Never take Your books for granted, but always cherish them by reading & studying them. Never take Your lectures for granted, but always listen to them and plunge my ears into the audible nectar coming from Your lotus lips & pure heart.

I’ve never met You personally, but these audios, videos, photos and books, Your Divine murtis have been given to us to connect with You as much as possible, I pray to never take them for granted and always take full advantage of the opportunity to come in contact with Your Divine Grace.

Never take Vaisnava association for granted, but always cherish every personal meeting face to face, eye to eye, heart to heart, soul to soul.

Never take Holy Dham for granted! You have given us such an amazing opportunity to live in the sacred place where the Lord personally performed His pastimes!

Never take chanting of the Holy Names for granted, as You repeatedly stress out how chanting this maha mantra is the easiest and quickest means of attaining the lotus feet of Sri Sri Radhe Shyam.

Never take Deities for granted, as They are alive and are here for us to serve Them and associate with the Lord face to face in the form that we can see.

The list goes on and on, I pray to never take them all for granted and thus lose the opportunity to appreciate them and take full advantage as per Your order.

Dear Srila Prabhupada, presently our Sravanam Diaries initiative is in the status of hiatus indefinitely, due to another full-time seva of a high priority, which is too personal to mention at the publically available homage.

I pray that we please You with all kinds of services that we are to perform, and that in any situation we shall always be able to pick up one of Your books and dive into nectar of Your literary ocean of mercy. One word, one sentence, one page, one chapter or best the entire book, let us always be eager for this nectar.

Thank You, dear Srila Prabhupada
Happy Vyasa Puja Day !!
Your unworthy insignificant servant,
Sulalita Devi Dasi
