”He endowed humanity with the priceless goal of life, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, whose bodily hue resembles that of a lustrous monsoon cloud. The touch of his merciful glance elevates the most fallen of men to a platform superior to the most excellent brahmana. He abandoned his personal happiness of residing in Sri Vrindavana Dhama and accepted countless troubles in order to render service to his guru, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura. O Prabhupada! Please bestow your service on me, for I am ready to accept your order.”

”He mercifully came with the purpose of curing dharma, who had become diseased. Thus he boarded the steamship Jaladuta to deliver the Western countries. He became the shelter for those totally bereft of decent behavior, his heart melted out of love for the souls in such a distressed condition. O Prabhupada! Please bestow your service on me, for I am ready to accept your order.”

”That noble person accepted the duty of a physician and patiently administered the medicine of the holy names of Krishna to those addicted to promiscuity, meat-eating, intoxication and gambling.

”For those blind to the truth, absorbed in the world of the senses and sense objects, he illuminated their consciousness through the daily reading of Sri Krishna’s instructions in the Bhagavad-gita.

”In the kitchen he masterfully cooked milk products, grains, vegetables, fruits and other ingredients, flavoring them with salt and spices such as chili. He thus served full plates of tasteful preparations, beginning with sweet rice, which were truly nectar for the tongue. O Prabhupada! Please bestow your service on me, for I am ready to accept your order.”

”He translated Srimad-Bhagavatam, which is the essence of the tree of Vedic literature, and through his disciples he distributed it throughout many countries. Thus he whose only sorrow lies in the sorrows of others, uncovered their hearts to reveal the presence of Krishna. O Prabhupada! Please bestow your service on me, for I am ready to accept your order.”

”His singing of Krishna’s glories illusioned the illusory energy and disrupted Kali’s plans for disruption. By his earnest devotional hankering, he invoked the charitable glance of Lord Jagannatha and thus He also traveled to bless the degraded countries of the West. O Prabhupada! Please bestow your service on me, for I am ready to accept your order.”

Your form is brilliantly manifest because you give pleasure to Sri Sri Radhika-Madana-Mohana, and you are completely filled with satisfaction by leading your disciples to Their lotus feet. O Prabhupada! Please bestow your service unto me, for I am ready to accept your order.”
