Vyasa Puja offering to Jayapataka Maharaja by Lokanath Swami
23 April 2021
Jayapataka Swami Maharaj, on the occasion of your 72 birthday and Vyasa Puja day, please accept my greetings and my humble obeisances. I was thinking,
“vipada? santu t?? ?a?vat”
You had been seeing calamities after calamity mostly health related, but the way you handle those calamities I do not see no one sees you getting panicked.
“dhiras tatra na muhyati ”
We are reminded, you remain undisturbed under all those circumstances. You even had an experience of near death out of this body experience. Of course you appreciate the care of the doctors but you have so much faith in the prayers of the devotees, I say doctor’s care but you are more into the prayer of devotees.
You are supposed to be handicapped as a result of these calamities, but now we are amazed to see how you are carrying on with your devotional services, your obligations towards TOVP or zonal responsibilities or making devotees and maintaining devotees or writing books. All these projects are going on undisturbed and your contributions are exceptional for anyone and everyone to take note of. Its amazing. You are like a miracle of ISKCON. I’m very proud of you Maharaja and I pray to Srila Prabhupada and entire parampara, and especially to your dear Gauranga, to give you long, healthy life of active devotional service and I pray that you please keep me in your prayers.
Your dear brother and servant Lokanath Swami here.
Jayapataka Swami Maharaja Appearance day, Birthday, Vyasapuja day ki Jaya!
Gaur premanande, Hari Hari bol.
