Offering to Srila Gurudeva!
Please accept my humble obeisances!
Oh Gurudeva feeling very much unqualified to glorify, I am seeking your mercy which is ever flowing to people, like Ganga from the spiritual world down to the fourteen planetary systems.
Gurudeva, Srila Prabhupada has personally certified Your divine grace character,
“I support Sri Jayapataka Swami's/ Mr. Gordon John Erdman's application for naturalization and I can vouch for his good character and loyalty.”
- CERTIFICATE OF CHARACTER
Srila Prabhupada was so much confident of your divine grace ability to perform various services:
“Jayapataka took the quotation from one press, which quotation included printing; paper, everything, 10,000 books for Rs. 4,000. This rascal wants so much. It is simply joking. Anyway, I think you cannot find out, let Jayapataka find out.”
Letter to: Bhavananda
Srila prabhupada always happily answers your questions by Your divine grace, even HDG miss Your divine questions if you were not present for the morning walk.
You are not an ordinary person as we suppose you to be. Many instances prove it
- “In 1971 land was obtained in Sridham Mayapur for constructing the world headquarters of ISKCON's international preaching movement. Srila Prabhupada assigned Jayapataka Swami to develop the Sri Mayapur project as his life's work, telling him, “Jayapataka Swami, I have given you the kingdom of God, now you develop it.” During the period of the initial development of the Sri Mayapur Candrodaya Mandir, the presiding Deities Sri Sri Radha-Madhava were brought to the temple, and Jayapataka Swami recognized them from a dream he had had years before while preaching in the West.”
You were an ideal son both for your Mother and Srila Prabhupada, your eternal father, While your divine grace’s mother talking to Srila Prabhupada,
Prabhupäda: Yes, your son will be able to answer all questions. Like Devahuti, you can take instruction from your son. That is in the history. Son is instructing mother.
Srila Prabhupada very much appreciated Your vyasa puja homage.
Srila Prabhupada: “I feel very much obliged to you for your nice understanding about my mission. Your offer of service to the cause of our Lord is also welcomed. I hope in future you shall be of great help in my mission and I can count upon.”
You always kept all those golden words of Srila Prabhupada as He wanted till now
He hoped for you and you made it true till the second.
You were glorified always by the people around you ,
“When Jayapatäka Swami applied for citizenship, more than ten thousand residents of Bengal and Orissa, including members of the leading bar association, petitioned the government on his behalf.”
Traveled far and long
With lesser fare greater accountability
You went on with many stoppages
To reach Kingdom of God .
A piece of land in Mayapur
dream of spiritual city coming true.
Struggles u underwent
to build the spiritual world.
Victory, victory in all your attempts
Serving Srila Prabhupada
Srila Prabhupada’s slogan
Kingdom of God, Develop it
He hoped for you
You made it true till the second.
Victory , Victory as per the name goes.
Being in American face
Application for Indian nationality
With ten thousands on your supplement
Won all on your responsibility
Your victory was glorious
Difficulties and disappointments
As the name, you went on victorious
Every town and village
Grabbing conditioned souls
Away from maya
Back to their place
Traveling through Ganges
Capture millions towards Gauranga.
Stroke tried to shake
Your flood back
With massive mercy
To drown and drown
who fled from you all these years.
Glory, Glory to You
“Jayapataka's life is not his own
It's Prabhupada's to do with as His own''
