In Eternal Honour of
Sripad Santosh Krishna Prabhu
বৈষ্ণবের গুণ-গান করিলে জীবের ত্রাণ
vaisnavera guna-gana karile jivera trana
"Singing the glories of the Vaishnavs rescues and protects the jiva soul. I
heard this from the mouth of sadhus and my Guru."
"Many do not know about the service of late Sripad Santosh Krishna Prabhu and
he himself also during his life often said that he had not been able to
become even an insignificant servant of the Math; but seeing how strong was
his attachment to the interest of the Math in the many small services he did,
it puts us to shame now. He never once even saw the accounts of his material
property; neither did he ever try to increase his wealth even by a cent; but
it is inconceivable how much this person tried, with heart and soul, to
collect and beg for the Math. Nobody ordered him, nobody encouraged him—he
took care of the Math's various paraphernalia like an expert householder of
his own accord, he would be always seen very busy with all kinds of works of
the Math; at the same time, he never once gave anyone even a slightest hint
of the service and works he was doing. Some of us help the Math's preaching
with some money, etc., give physical labour, but if I do not see any mention
about me in a newspaper column, at the preachers' assembly at a holy dham, or
in an eulogy written by Sri Guru and Vaisnavs, then I decide, 'There is no
use serving the Math. They are prejudiced. They do not praise me, do not give
me 'jay', so I better rough it at home than waste time, money and life for
the interest of the Math.' However, the great soul who we have mentioned
before, gave so much money for the service of 'Jayasri', continuously toiling
as a low menial worker—it is impossible to mention everything. However, he
never once said anything that would give a slightest hint that he wanted to
see his praise in a newspaper column or even more so to see his name included
in the Math's Calendar; but we have seen that his effort to look after the
interests of the Math was gradually making him great."
