In nineteen hundred and sixty-five
The western world came alive
For there entered into this land
A very, very Special Man.
Coming here on His Guru's command
At sixty-nine, He was not a young man
After struggling hard for over a year
Finally we began to hear.
Krishna He!-Rama He!
After Chanting Hare Krishna in Tompkins Park
The newspapers finally made a remark
No one really knew then or had any idea
What the Swamiji brought from India.
The Transcendental message of the Bhagavatam
Into our language this knowledge has come
Now by the Mercy of His Divine Grace
Pure love of God has taken lust's place
And the bliss of the Holy Name of God we now taste.
With no help from His god brothers or anyone
Officials of India or even His own sons
Starting in the Bowery then on to San Francisco Bay
Trying to give the West a chance to be saved.
As time went on the movement grew in size
And then everyone began to realize
Prabhupad would not be with us for very long
What are we going to do when He's gone?
Prabhupada, Jaya (Jagat) Gurudev!
Speaking the words of the Supersoul
Surely He satisfied His Spiritual Master's goal
Giving the unfortunate pure devotional service
Giving us freely the key to spiritual bliss.
Now Prabhupad is gone, His reputation rests on us
We must teach the world what He has taught us
Just as His purity reflects on us
So must our activities make Him Glorious!
In nineteen hundred and seventy-seven
Srila Prabhupad returned to Heaven
Leaving us here to fulfill His plans
He was a very Special Man.
