Poem for Jan 11


Radha-Govinda reciprocate with me.
Radha-Govinda, I pray to You to please
make me a better devotee.
But I can’t go to You directly;
I must first make my offering
to my spiritual master Srila Prabhupada.
We have been neglecting him,
placing him in a far corner
of the room and not offering him
daily meals. Today we are
correcting that.
Now he is
placed on the desk closer
to my chair. I can
see him intimately. It
is proper to make your
offering first to Gurudeva,
then Lord Caitanya, then Radha-Govinda.
I am relieved to be relieved
at last from this offense.
Now all the Deities are gathered together
in an intimate combination, and I
am happy to report it.
I am grateful They all reside with me at Viraha Bhavan.
