Conversations with Srila Prabhupada

15. Conversations with Srila Prabhupada Vol. 36 . Room conversation, Vrindavana India. Oct. 8, 1977.

T.K: ". . . Anyone else you want to see? Narayana Maharaja? Yes. We went to see him just to inquire about the necessary ceremony, and he gave us instruction. I sent Bhakti-caru Maharaja and Bhakti-prema Maharaja, and they wrote down everything. But Narayana Maharaja was very concerned. He said he's going to try to come to see you tomorrow. That's all right, isn't it? So Krsna das can be called for. Anytime? Okay. He stays at Radha-kunda? We'll inquire. Does he stay at the Gaudiya Matha here?

Prabhupada: Hm.

T.K.: He does. In Vrindavana. Okay.

Prabhupada: Narayana Maharaja comes; then everything is all right.

T.K.: So if I call Narayana Maharaja, is there any need for Krsna dasa to come?

Prabhupadaa: He can arrange.

T.K.: Narayana Maharaja. Yes, actually he wanted to do that. He gave us instructions, but he also wanted to take part. So better I call Narayana Maharaja than Krsna dasa? Okay. I'll send a car for him tomorrow morning. He was saying he was thinking to come tomorrow so I'll send a car and say 'Prabhupada requests if it's convenient that you can come this morning." That'll be all right? Jaya Srila Prabhupada! (Break)

Prabhupada: (Bengali) And Narayana Maharaja, he'll come tomorrow?

TK: He'll come when we . . . Tonight could he come? You think that's too late?

B-C: I think he'll come, if we go and pick him up.

TK: If we go just now with the car, Bhakti-caru goes just now with the car, he may come tonight, Narayana Maharaja.

Prabhupada: Hm. Go on, kirtana.

TRANSLATION

1
The lotus feet of our spiritual master are the only way by which we can attain pure devotional service. I bow to his lotus feet with great awe and reverence. By his grace one can cross the ocean of material suffering and obtain the mercy of Krsna.

2
My only wish is to have my consciousness purified by the words emanating from his lotus mouth. Attachment to his lotus feet is the perfection that fulfills all desires.

3
He opens my darkened eyes and fills my heart with transcendental knowledge. He is my Lord birth after birth. From him ecstatic prema emanates; by him ignorance is destroyed. The Vedic scriptures sing of his character.

4
Our spiritual master is the ocean of mercy, the fiend of the poor, and the lord and master of the devotees. O master! Be merciful unto me. Give me the shade of your lotus feet. Your fame is spread all over the three worlds.
