Srila Prabhupada Stotram
(Composed by Ananta Dasa Sastri)
Ananta Dasa Sastri was a disciple of Srila Prabhupada. He used to travel with Srila Prabhupada in India and he was in the Sanskrit department assisting Srila Prabhupada in translation work. He compiled five slokas which describe much of Srila Prabhupada's divine character and his divine mission also. Prabhupada very much liked these five slokas. We used to sing them every morning before Guru Puja by his vyasasana, so some of you may remember them.
mad-drsti-gocara prabho prabhupada-svamin
sancintayami caranau tava bhakti-heto
"O Lord, O Prabhupada, may you always be the object of my vision. Only the name of Krsna can destroy my pride and illusion. Although my mind and intelligence are contaminated by wicked inclinations, I nevertheless take shelter of Your Divine Grace by constant meditation upon your lotus feet in causeless devotion.'
jnanam param parama-krsna-sudharmity uktam
dantas tu deva prabhupada namo namaste
"In the most holy land of Vrndavana, in Ramana Reti, at the lotus feet of Sri Krsna-Balarama, you are preaching the topmost knowledge of Krsna the Supreme Personality of Godhead who is the fountainhead of religion. O master of the senses, O my Lord, Srila Prabhupada, let me offer my obeisances unto you."
namaste namaste krpa-purna-drsti
namaste namaste mahananda-dhatri
namamo namama punar raksa raksa
prasiddha-prabho pahi mam daksa daksa
"I offer my obeisances unto the spiritual master of the entire world, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, whose glances are full of mercy and who is the bestower of transcendental bliss. O renowned lord, protect me and kindly shower your compassion on me again and again."
tasmai sri-gurave nama
"Let me offer my obeisances unto the lotus feet of my spiritual master, who is a disciple of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura, who is always calm and joyful, and who in known by the name of Bhaktivedanta Swami."
ananda-rasi prabhupada namo namas te
"The land of Bengal is worshipable by the whole world because Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhu performed His pastimes there. I offer my obeisances unto my divine master, who is full of bliss. He is always in the ecstasy of Lord Gauranga and is therefore immersed in the lotus feet of Sri Sri Radha-Madhava."
