Happy Janamastami!

Hare Krishna everyone,
I wish you all a very Happy Janmashtami !

Very mercifully Krishna appeared on this day in order to bestow His causeless mercy upon us and take us back to His Holy Dham.
Then He sent Srila Prabhupada His most dear devotee to distribute His mercy all over the world. Let us take full advantage of this opportunity and make our life achieve it’s ultimate success.

Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada,
Bhakti Charu Swami


“My dear Krishna, You have so mercifully come to this world to rescue me from here and now it is my turn to reciprocate. The only way I can reciprocate with Your love is by offering myself completely in Your lotus feet. Krishna, please allow me to surrender myself unto Your lotus feet. Now on, I won’t demand anything from You for myself. All I want is to serve You.

What is the need of asking anything from You, Krishna? You have already given us everything, whatever we need. Even the necessities which I don’t know and are required for me, you have already arranged for me in this world. If even a material father can take of his children nicely then what to speak of You, Krishna, the Supreme Loving Father of all living entities? You are undoubtedly taking care of me in all respects.

But this love is not complete. Although You are loving me so much, I am not reciprocating with Your love. Now, on this occasion of your divine appearance, I offer myself to you completely. My little services to you are expression of my love for You. This is the only way I can be happy and joyful, by serving Your lotus feet. 

Krishna, please accept my love, my services and myself in Your lotus feet.”
