Gaudiya Vaishnava reflections

In his book called Gauravani Pracarine, our Srila Gurudeva gives us the most beautiful and deepest glorification of Srila Prabhupada.
Read it in full on or get the book from

This book was compiled from the lectures of Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja. In May 2004, Srila Gurudeva requested that a special book be published, consisting of his various discourses on the deep meaning of the phrase ‘gauravani-pracarine,’ which appears in the pranama mantra of the world’s most renowned proponent of Krishna Consciousness, Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. These discourses were spoken on several occasions in different countries, over a period of ten years.

The following prayer was written by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada on board the ship Jaladuta on September 13, 1965.

Text One

krishna taba punya habe bhai
e-punya koribe jabe radharani khusi habe
dhruva ati boli toma tai

I emphatically say to you, O brothers, you will obtain your good fortune from the Supreme Lord Krishna only when Shrimati Radharani becomes pleased with you.

Text Two

shri-siddhanta saraswati shaci-suta priya ati
krishna-sebaya jara tula nai
sei se mohanta-guru jagater madhe uru
krishna-bhakti dey thai thai

Shri Shrimad Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura, who is very dear to Lord Gauranga, the son of mother Shaci, is unparalleled in his service to the Supreme Lord Shri Krishna. He is that great saintly spiritual master who bestows intense devotion to Krishna at different places throughout the world.

Text Three

tara iccha balavan pashcatyete than than
hoy jate gauranger nam
prthivite nagaradi asamudra nada nadi
sakalei loy krishna nam

By his strong desire, the holy name of Lord Gauranga will spread throughout all the countries of the Western world. In all the cities, towns, and villages on the earth, from all the oceans, seas, rivers, and streams, everyone will chant the holy name of Krishna.

Text Four

tahale ananda hoy tabe hoy digvijay
caitanyer krpa atishay
maya dusta jata duhkhi jagate sabai sukhi
vaishnaver iccha purna hoy

As the vast mercy of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu conquers all directions, a flood of transcendental ecstasy will certainly cover the land. When all the sinful, miserable living entities become happy, the Vaishnavas’ desire is then fulfilled.
