Looking Here From Goloka Vrindavan

Sent in by Goloka Vrindavana dasa

Prabhupāda is still asking me about Bhubaneswar. He looks here from Goloka Vrindavan, wanting to know how the work is progressing. Jogyatā-vicāre, kichu nāhi pāi, tomāra karuṇā sāra — “My eternal spiritual father, I have no qualification. I am most unfit and fallen. What can I do without your mercy?” Kākere garuḍa kare — The mercy of guru is so powerful that it can make a crow into Garuda. Karuṇā nā hoile, kāṇḍiyā kāṇḍiyā, prāṇa nā rākhibo āra — “O Śrīla Prabhupāda, if you do not shower your causeless mercy upon this most degraded disciple of yours, I will only cry and cry until I give up my life.”

(Lecture by Śrīla Gour Govinda Swami on Śrīla Prabhupāda’s Disappearance Day, Bhubaneswar, 29 October 1992)
