I serve the lotus feet of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Because of his mercy, the delightful, aromatic, and cooling Malayan breeze of the service, pastimes, and message of Lord Krishnacandra is now moving over the Western countries. That breeze destroys the distressing heat of material existence and grants liberation [to the conditioned souls].

I offer respectful obeisances to His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who is igniting the fire of the sankirtana-yajna in the Western countries. That fire is the source of happiness and auspicious-ness for the living entities.

I offer repeated respectful obeisances to my spiritual master, whose great mercy has caused the delightful honey of the holy name of Lord Krishna to be tasted by the tongues of those born in mleccha families.

I repeatedly praise my spiritual master, His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Just see, he has mercifully brought Lord Jagannatha, whose smiling transcendental form is wonderfully blackish, and who is the master of all living entities, from the holy place of Kurukshetra to the countries of the fallen yavanas.

I repeatedly offer respectful obeisances to His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. With the sharp sword of logic and argument, he destroys the poisonous creepers of the Mayavada philosophy. He jubilantly and expertly plants the trees of devotional service to Lord Hari [in the hearts of the living entities].

I offer respectful obeisances to His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

yena pascima-bhuvam pratinitas
tam namami satatam prabhupadam
I offer repeated obeisances to His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who brought the delightful and regal mountain of Srimad-Bhagavatam to the Western countries. That eternal mountain is the best of the Puranas and the most delightful of all Vedic scriptures. It is full of rivers of nectar which are the prayers of the pure devotees, and it contains innumerable caves full of jewels which are the descriptions of the beauty of Krishna. That mountain has an exquisitely beautiful summit which is decorated with colorful gardens which are the auspicious pastimes of Lord Krishna, the son of Nanda Maharaja.

His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada is the leader of the paramahamsas. Because of him, the great banyan tree of the mercy of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu is now quickly covering the Western countries. That banyan tree is very fragrant, and it removes the burning sufferings of material existence. That tree delights the saintly devotees and creates great auspiciousness.

santam bhaktimatam patim mama gurum seve sada sadaram
With great respect I engage in the service of my saintly spiritual master, the leader of the devotees. He brought the famous, nectarean celestial Ganges River of the hearing and chanting of the glories of Lord Govinda from Vraja-pura to the Western countries. That greatly auspicious river nourishes the lotus flower of love of Krishna and kills the snakes of continued material existence.
