Vyas Puja Offering 2013 by Gauridasa Pandita Prabhu

Gauridasa Pandita  "I wrote my Vyasapuja offering on my way back from India and I'm ready to send it in"

Dear Srila Prabhupada,
All glories to you always and especially on your most auspicious appearance day.

It's amazing what you have done giving us your 'Matchless Gifts' of love of God. As time goes on it becomes more obvious to more and more devotees and people of the world how special you are and how you made the greatest contribution for the betterment of our lives and the world by giving us Krsna Consciousness; which is the best way to true peace and happiness. You are most qualified to get the Peace Prize and I think you will in time. You are the most important person to ever Grace America and the world with your presence and your presents of Krsna Consciousness.

Everyday, especially in India, thousands of people are flocking to your Temples. In Vrindavan, at your Krsna Balaram Mandir and Samadhi Mandir, all day long every day people come and see you, find out more about you, and honor you more and more. This will continue at least for the rest of the Golden Age of Lord Chaitanya.

Chanting in front of your Samadhi Mandir is one of my favorite things to do. It's enlivening to see so many new people visiting your Samadhi Mandir and Museum, your house and Temple and the Bhaktivedanta Goshala. So many are giving donations and doing devotional service because of you. So many are getting your books and Prasadam!

Your books are everything to you and as you said so many times you are present in your books and available as the guru to all who accept and follow you. Your followers are increasing as time goes by and it will continue to increase everyday throughout this Golden Age of Guru and Gouranga.

When a new book was finished and you examined it very carefully, tears of appreciation and joy came to you. In 1977 you were preparing to leave your body in Vrindavan and were bed ridden. But when a newly printed book came you asked us to turn up the lights, prop you up and get your glasses. You looked at the book cover to cover and smiled broadly even though physically there was pain. You transcended the body with your pure Krsna Consciousness. It was obvious that Krsna was giving you His special Shakti. You fasted for days and weeks but still had great energy and kept preaching and writing all the way. You said if we cooperated and read your books everything would go on nicely.

You fulfilled the Mission of Lord Chaitanya. At an age when most people are retired and weak you started your worldwide preaching. You did amazing things starting with nothing material but everything spiritual. Because you had full faith in the words of your spiritual master and Krsna you were able to do the improbable, with Their help.

You are irreplacable. Attachment to your lotus feet is the perfection that fulfills all desires and are the way to pure devotional service. Those who are naturally attracted to you and accept you as their guru, are the most fortunate souls in creation. You are the main guru for all of us old and new and the duty of all of us is to give you to every fortunate soul.

When I first met you the day I joined, you told me and the other devotees on the Sri Sri Radha Damodar Traveling Sankirtan Party, "You are all very bright-faced and fortunate to come to Lord Chaitanya's Movement. Now that you are fortunate; makes others fortunate. Preach this message of Lord Chaitanya's all over the world." You were so serene looking sitting there and so charming. You were always the most gracious host to all your many guests and made sure all your guests received Prasadam.
