Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur Prabhupad
 Anu Jain  
 20 January 2020  

All glories to Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur Prabhupad, the vast ocean of whose glories cannot be adequately and sufficiently described. Bringing with her the mercy of her Swamini Srimati Radhika, Nayan-mani manjari descended to this earthly planet in the form of Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur and showered upon all, who took shelter of his cooling lotus feet, the nectar of Krishna Prema, thus making their lives successful. Soft as a rose and yet strong as a thunderbolt, this powerful personality with a golden hue and towering physique, left a deep impression upon whomsoever he met and instilled within the hearts of all sincere living entities the inclination to serve Krishna. Some of his limitless amazing qualities have been beautifully described in the following verses composed by his dear disciple, Srila Bhakti Rakshak Shridhar Maharaj, which pleased His divine Grace Srila Bhakti Siddhanta so much that he instructed all the devotees of the gaudiya maths to daily sing these prayers.sujanarbuda-radhita-pada-yugamyuga-dharma-dhurandhara-patra-varamvaradabhaya-dayaka-pujya-padampranamami sada prabhupada-padamHis lotus feet are served in devotion by multitudes of high, virtuous souls; he is the establisher of the religion of the age (as Sri Krsna-sankirtana); he is the presiding monarch (of the Visva Vaisnava-Raja-Sabha - the universal society of the pure devotees that are the true 'kings' or guides of all); and he is the fulfiller of the most cherished desires of those who dispel fear (for all souls). I make my obeisance unto the lotus feet of that illustrious great soul, worshippable by one and all - perpetually do I make my obeisance unto the radiance emanating from the toenails of the holy feet of my Lord.bhajanorjjita-sajjana-sangha-patimpatitadhika-karunikaika-gatimgati-vancita-vancakacintya-padampranamami sada prabhupada-padamHe is the leader of the fortunate souls blessed with the treasure of internal pure devotion; he is greatly merciful upon the fallen souls, being their only shelter; and his inconceivable holy feet are the shelter for the deceivers, by deceiving them.

That beautiful figure shames the mad ecstasy of golden lotus stems.

Perpetually do I make my obeisance unto that effulgence emanating from the toenails of the holy feet of my Lord.nija-sevaka-taraka-ranji-vidhumvidhutahita-hunkrta-simha-varamvaranagata-balisa-sanda-padampranamami sada prabhupada-padamLike the moon that delights the stars, he is surrounded by his circle of personal servitors, making their hearts bloom in divine ecstasy. The malicious non-devotees are made to flee in panic by the sound of his thunderous roar, and the simple, inoffensive souls attain the ultimate fortune by accepting his lotus feet. I make my obeisance unto him; perpetually do I make my obeisance unto the brilliance emanating from the toenails of the holy lotus feet of my Lord.vipuli-krta-vaibhava-gaura-bhuvambhuvanesu vikirtita gaura-dayamdayaniya-ganarpita-gaura-padampranamami sada prabhupada-padamHe has revealed the vast, magnificent beauty of Sri Gaura Dhama; he has broadcast the tidings of the supreme magnanimity of Sri Gauranga throughout the whole universe; and in the hearts of the fit recipients of his grace, he has firmly established the lotus feet of Sri Gaura.

And great personalities who are competent to confer boons - they, too, worship his lotus feet. I make my obeisance unto him; perpetually do I bow down to the radiance emanating from the toenails of the holy feet of my Divine Master.parahamsa-varam paramartha-patimpatitoddharane-krta-vesa-yatimyati-raja-ganaih parisevya-padampranamami sada prabhupada-padamThe crownjewel of the paramahamsas, the Prince of the treasure of the supreme perfection of life, Sri Krsna-prema, he accepted the robes of a mendicant sannyasi just to deliver the fallen souls.
