All glories to Srila Prabhupāda

You have saved me from going to the darkest regions of hell, which I was destined to suffer on account of my extremely sinful activities. You came at the right time to rescue me. Your Divine Grace saved me from the word jugglery of the speculative scholars and delivered me the sublime essence of the Vedic literatures in a very simple and easy-to-understand language. Srila Prabhupada, this is Your USP – You present the highest knowledge effortlessly without any ostentatious show of scholarship. Though Your Divine Grace is the greatest scholar and the greatest devotee, You never claimed to be so and You have very mercifully associated with the fallen souls in order to deliver them. O Srila Prabhupāda, You are humility personified and a true example of “trnad api sunicena.”

I beg from you to bless me with a small fragment of your humility so that I may progress more on the path shown by you.

Your fallen servant,
