TRANSLATION

1) I offer my respectful obeisances unto His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Because of his efforts, the eternal, brilliant lamp of Navadvipa (Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu) is now destroying the darkness of ignorance within the hearts of the living entities in this world.

 

2) I offer my respectful obeisances unto His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Being especially ordered by Sri Srimad Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura, and being very merciful, he placed in the Western countries, where English and other such degraded languages are spoken, the auspicious treasure house of devotional literature written by Srila Vyasadeva, Srila Krsnadasa Kaviraja, and others.

 

3) I offer my respectful obeisances unto His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Because of his expert logic, the brilliant sun of Lord Govinda's transcendental form is now illuminating this world and completely eclipsing the insignificant glowworms of the impersonalists.

 

4) I offer my respectful obeisances unto His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Because of his efforts, the pure and crystal-clear Ganges River of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, the king of puranas, is now flowing all over the world. The pebbles in that river are the jewels of the pure devotees' prayers, and playing within its waters are the swans of Lord Kesava's pastimes.

 

5) I offer my respectful obeisances unto His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who planted the charming lotus feet of Sri Sri Radha and Krsna in hundreds of temples and thousands of hearts throughout this world.

 

6) I offer my respectful obeisances unto His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Showering thousands of arrows, which are his books, he has violently destroyed the fierce army of illusions presented by the Age of Kali.

 

7) I offer my respectful obeisances unto His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Upon this earth he has planted the desire tree of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, whose many splendid fruits are the many different methods of distributing the nectarean message of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

 

8) I offer my respectful obeisances unto His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who is like and ocean of mercy, and who has completely taken shelter of Lord Krsna, the transcendental son of Nanda Maharaja, with his body, mind, words, and self. Srila Prabhupada lives forever by his divine instructions, and his sincere followers live with him.
