All Glories to Sri Sri Guru Gauranga!!

Dear Vaishnava friends,
Dandavat and Hare Krishna. Good fortune comes to rescue us from our downward spiral. The Vaishnava Acharya "is" Krishna's extended hand of welcome to the forlorn souls. Overlooking all our faults, the acharya creates

desire, nay, deep yearning for the sweet nectar emanating from the Supreme Person. Even though we are diseased and refuse to believe there is a finer, sweeter, and satisfying reality, the Acharya finds the way to the heart of any with the least bit of submission to the Truth.

Hear, my friends, what I have to say. The Acharya is unique in quality, with the magic of a touchstone, able to turn iron into gold, the Acharya can transform the hard-hearted faithless individuals into soft-hearted souls who cannot bear the forgetfulness of Sri Krishna. Who could ever imagine that in this lifetime they might sacrifice so much misery for so much nectar divine! The appearances of this illusory environment can easily be seen through, and the underlying beautiful reality of Sri Krishna made apparent by the Acharyadeva.

On this blessed day, let us worship the reservoir and giver of good fortune, Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhara deva Goswami Maharaj. Ever the ocean of good qualities, well-wisher and capable of creating sincerity amongst even the hopelessly insincere, gifted with understanding and a true transparent medium to the Absolute Truth, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, may he awaken Krishna consciousness, divine loving service, in each and every one of us. May his nonsectarian message enter the hearts of any and all with the least theistic inclination. We seek your blessings and guidance through your instructions, left to us by your publications and by the association of sadhus, and by your own outstretched hand which you ever offer from the true reality of the spiritual home.

Kindly be merciful unto us.
