Prayers in Glorification of the Spiritual Master

(This is for the spiritual master who is in the Vaishnava disciplic line from Lord Krishna)

“At the Yogapitha [birthplace of Lord Caitanya, an incarnation of Lord Krishna] in Sri Mayapur in the spiritual abode of Navadvipa, Lord Gaurasundar [Lord Caitanya] is sitting on a jeweled throne. On His right is Lord Nityananda [incarnation of Lord Balarama, Krishna’s brother]; on His left is Sri Gadadhara [incarnation of Radharani]. In front with folded hands are Sri Advaita [incarnation of Lord Vishnu] and Srivasa [incarnation of NaradaMuni], who is holding an umbrella over Their heads. On a jeweled platform below Lord Gauranga’s, Srila Prabhupada is sitting.”

 

tvam gopika vrisharaves tanayantike ‘se

sevadhikarini guro nija-pada-padme

dasyam pradaya kuru mam vraja-kanane shri-

radhanghri-sevana-rase sukhinim sukhabdhau

 

“O beloved spiritual master, you are always in the presence of the cowherd girl Radha, the daughter of King Vrishabhanu. Please award me service at your lotus-like feet, which are the proprietors of devotional service. Please place me in the ocean of joy by bestowing upon me happiness in the mellows of service at the feet of Sri Radha in the groves of Vraja Dhama.”

 

mukam karoti vachalam

pangum langhayate girim

yat-kripa tam aham vande

shri-gurum dina-taranam

 

“I offer my respectful obeisances unto my spiritual master, the deliverer of the fallen souls. His mercy turns the dumb into eloquent speakers and enables the lame to cross mountains.”

 

om ajnana-timirandhasya

jnananjana-shalakaya

chakshur unmilitam yena

tasmai shri-gurave namaha

 

“I offer my respectful obeisances unto my spiritual master, who has opened my eyes, which were blinded by the darkness of ignorance, with the torchlight of knowledge.”

 

radha-sammukha-samsaktim

sakhi-sanga-nivasinim

tvam aham satatam vande

madhavashraya-vigraham

 

“O spiritual master, I continually offer my obeisances unto you, who are always in the presence of Srimate Radharani and very much devoted to Her. You always reside in the association of Her confidantes, the gopis, and you are the abode of loving devotion to Krishna.”

 

nama-shreshtham manum api shachi-putram atra svarupam

rupam tasyagrajam uru-purim mathurim goshthavatim

radha-kundam giri-varam aho radhika-madhavasham

prapto yasya prathita-kripaya shri-gurum tam nato ‘smi

 

“I bow down to the beautiful lotus feet of my spiritual master, by whose causeless mercy I have obtained the supreme holy name, the divine mantra, the service of the son of Shachimata [Lord Caitanya], the association of Shrila Svarupa Damodara, Rupa Gosvami, and his older brother Sanatana Gosvami, the supreme abode of Mathura, the blissful abode of Vrindavana, the divine Radha Kunda and Govardhana Hill, and the desire within my heart for the loving service of Sri Radhika and Madhava [Krishna] in Vrindavana.”

 

he guro jnana-da dina-bandho

svananda-datah karunaika-sindho

vrindavanasina hitavatara

prasida radha-pranaya-prachara

 

“O spiritual master, O giver of divine wisdom, O friend of the fallen, you are the giver of your own bliss and you are the only ocean of mercy. Although dwelling in Vrindavana, you have descended for the welfare of fallen souls like myself and you are preaching the divine love of Radha for Krishna. Please be kind upon me.”

 

amsho bhagavato ‘smy aham

sada daso ‘smi sarvatha

tat-kripapakshako nityam

tat-preshthasat karomi svam

 

“I am a tiny part and parcel of the Supreme Lord and I am always and in every way His eternal servant. As I am always hoping for His mercy and kindness, I offer myself to His most dear servitor, my spiritual master.”

 

vancha-kalpa-tarubhyash cha

kripa-sindhubhya eva cha

patitanam pavanebhyo

vaishnavebhyo namo namaha

 

“I offer my respectful obeisances unto all the Vaishnava devotees of the Lord. They are just like desire trees who can fulfill the desire of everyone. They are oceans of mercy and are the purifiers of the fallen souls.”

 

Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare

Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare
