Bhakti Charu Swami

Dear Srila Prabhupada, Please accept my most humble obeisances at your lotus feet on this most auspicious day of your divine appearance. I do not know how everyone felt at the time of your appearance on this planet. Naturally it must have brought immense joy to everyone’s heart. At that time all the stars and planets must have adjusted themselves in such a way that everything became extremely auspicious, and demigods must have showered flowers from heaven. However, while reflecting on that occasion I tend to remember the day of your disappearance and lament my irreparable loss. I was blessed with such inconceivable good fortune to have your association, but I carelessly squandered it. So many days and nights I spent with you, trying to serve you, but instead of serving I simply created disturbances for you. Those days I had such a wonderful opportunity to ask you so many relevant questions, but my stupid mind was so obsessed with its search for sense gratification that it did not allow me to recognize that rare opportunity. So many times you gave me so many profound instructions, but at those times I did not bother to press the recording button of the tape recorder lying just next to you, to immortalize those instructions. So many times you spoke about such important topics, such as varnasrama, initiation in ISKCON after your disappearance, and our relationship with the Gauidya Matha,
