"Dear devotees I greet you with affection from New York,
I share with you the meditation for today: Oh my Lord, my Master, on the day of your appearance, on the day of your celebration Father's day, we come to offer you our obeisances, submissive to your instruction, eager to listen, eager to remember your tattva, your love, your power, empowered by divine mercy, expanded in many ways in the world: Srila Gaura Kishor Das Babaji Maharaj, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur, son of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur, inspired by Jagannath Das Babaji Maharaj, and they all began to preach for everyone. And Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura's dearest disciple Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada accepted his order in his heart and invited everyone chant the name of Gaura.
A close friend of Srila Bhakti Raksaka Sridhar Goswami Maharaja and many other spiritual brothers such as, Srila Pramode Puri Maharaja and Srila Prajnana Kesava Maharaja who was his sannyasa guru. Beside him, he the launched the Campaign for universal parents; He taught that no one must be a parent, teacher or guru if they are not willing to save the dependent from repeated birth and death.
We came to you Prabhupada, to your beloved son Srila Harijan Maharaja, as well as Srila Atulananda Acharya, all temple presidents, all the sannyasis and maharanis; they who are dedicated to helping people like fathers and mothers, siksa gurus, because today is the day that we revere you, as every day we must do, remaining submissive to Your command. "Hari katha harinama" preach to all corners of the earth, establish the glory of Gauranga and Govardhana, Nrsimhadev's glory, the glory of the Maha Mantra, the Bhagavad Gita; establish the glory of Sri Chaitanya Caritamrta and all other books. Establish the glory of mahaprasadam, sadhu sanga, and the accompaniment of pujas and devotional sadhana.
Oh Prabhupada, we are completely indebted to you forever; even if we dedicate our entire life to service, it will not be enough to repay you for all that you have given and will give for everyone from China to Santiago. Your have reached all living entities of the universe with your Prema by being devoted your spiritual father and taking his word as if it was an order from your heart. Prabhupada we ask you to inspire us to be good children and to keep preaching your message to the four corners of the world.
Today we also offer our respect to our respective physical parents and guardians who raised the fla for our physical, emotional, mental and intellectual well-being and most importantly spiritual, to all of those who have sustained us, all trying to contribute to our progress. We are grateful to them on this Father's Day, we offer our obeisances and ask for continued blessings because they are part of the protection of Krishna upon us; they have been placed in our lives to protect us and we also pray for their protection, for their progress, for their joy, and for their success as it is a terrible world, without mercy of the Vaishnavas, otherwise one is lost.
So on Father's Day, I offer my prayers to the great manifestation of the guardian of devotion, the guardian of welfare, the protector of children. They are an example of excellent parents who never stop and are not fighters because they are always full of love. Parents should know well that children need love, security; They need Guru, Sastra and Sadhu for their heart to flourish and their conclusions are always devotional.
Thank divine parents, thanks you parents, thank you guardians, husbands, brothers who accept the masculine role as inspiration for loving service, and are not males just on loose terms who only want to impose their ego, and who torture others with their distorted talents. Thanks to those who are friends of the fallen souls. Thank you Prabhupada for teaching us who is a true father. And to all those who hear from you, both parents and children, may they benefit.
I hope you have an unforgettable father's day. Srila Prabhupada ki jay !!!!!!!!!
Your always well-wisher,
B. A. Paramadvaiti Swami
