Dear Srila Prabhupäda,

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

The best way to get your mercy is through your books. Please make me your instrument.

Please make me your instrument to distribute them.

Please make me your instrument to discuss them.

Please make me your instrument to realize them.

Everything is in your books.

The other day I came across some Sanskrit terms I had never come across before. I thought, “Where will I get the definitions for these terms?” The next day I found the same terms defined in one of your purports in Caitanya-caritamrita.

I then decided to teach the same book in VIHE, thinking the best way to learn your books is to discuss them with your devotees. Especially I want to learn with the book distributors and other devotees fixed in the service of your mission year after year who come to the dhäma for your association and mercy. I want to learn with your servants and get their mercy.

rāja-vidyā rāja-guhyaṁ
pavitram idam uttamam
pratyakṣāvagamaṁ dharmyaṁ
su-sukhaṁ kartum avyayam

 “The knowledge is the king of education, the most secret of all secrets. It is the purest knowledge, and because it gives direct perception of the self by realization, it is the perfection of religion. It is everlasting, and it is joyfully performed.”

Please allow us to enter more and more deeply into your books.

Please bless us with both knowledge and realization.

Please keep us as


Your eternal servants,

Giriräja Swami
