You opened my eyes to the beauty and wonders of the Absolute Truth -- Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. You opened my ears to the infinite mercy and unlimited ocean of bliss contained in the Mahamantra. You opened my mind to the transcendental knowledge of Bhagavad-gita, Srimad-Bhagavatam and Caitanya-caritamrta …. and most of all you opened my heart and filled it with love, compassion and hope.
You are an ocean of mercy. You have invested your very self into the books you translated and wrote and each and every time we read from them we are plunged into an ocean of nectar.
Whenever I attempt to express my gratitude and appreciation words fail me. My eyes well up with tears just thinking about your kindness and sweetness. They are tears jaded with material desires but they are all I have to give you. Please accept my tears of loving gratitude at your lotus feet which are my only shelter. You are my eternal saviour, protector, teacher, father and master. Please allow me to serve you life after life after life. Please Srila Prabhupada -- I have no where else to go.
