Dear Srila Prabhupäda,

Please accept my prostrated obeisances at your lotus feet. All glories, all glories to Your Divine Grace.

We have heard that the service of the spiritual master is the all-in-all for the disciple. Actually it is so. There is no doubt about it. But for some of us disciples who are less intelligent, direct service to the spiritual master is not easy. We need to be engaged by your dear and expert disciples, who know well how to please you. We long to serve in their association. So on this most auspicious occasion, we pray that by your causeless mercy we may be placed under the care and guidance of devotees who can engage our energies expertly in your dearmost projects. This would be your greatest favor to us now.

Thanking you for everything, I beg to remain


Your eternal servant,

Giriräja Swami
