"You reside at Sri Gaura Dham, the abode of Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhu, who is the only path for those who want to take shelter in Sri Vraja Dham. By the exclusive conclusions of the pure devotional scriptures you put an end to all bad association, removing all misery and pain. You are attached to Srila Rupa Goswami, subservient to Srila Sanatana Goswami, and emanate the lustre of Srila Jiva Goswami. All glory to you, Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur, the master and protector of all Gaudiya Vaishnavs."

"You have manifested Sri Chaitanya Math in the land of Gauda, on the bank of the Ganges, in Mayapur that stands in Nabadwip, non-different from Sri Vraja. Renowned among great Gaudiya Vaisnava teachers as Sri Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur, you have appeared like a radiant sun rising in the morning sky and you are worshippable to all followers of Sri Rupa Goswami."

Param Guru Maharaj wrote so many things about Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur.

Today is a very worshippable day. We always celebrate appearance, disappearance days of Vaishnavs, and today we can worship Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur, we can offer obeisance, some flowers at his lotus feet, and we can pray, "Wherever you are staying now, please shower your mercy upon us from there so we can be servants of the servants of your lotus feet, so that we can serve the disciple of your disciple's disciple, and so that we may not leave this line of devotion. Please, do not reject me. Na theliha ranga paya: do not reject me! You can make me your foot dust..." We can pray to Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur's lotus feet in this way.

If you consider what he gave to the world, you will realise that no one can compete with him.

When Haridas Thakur disappeared, Mahaprabhu said about him, "Medini sunya haila. There is a gap now in this world..." Srila Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj also said that when Prabhupad was gone, on that day there appeared a gap and that gap would never be filled again...

Come to Your Senses
'You have got a human birth and it is an opportunity to finish your wandering throughout the samsar. This human birth is so auspicious, but if we do not worship the Lord properly, do not practise properly, then time and time again we will have to keep returning to this world of birth, death, old age, and disease.'


Sri Sri Damodarastakam
'O Lord, Your lotus face, which is encircled by locks of soft black hair tinged with red, is kissed again and again by Mother Yasoda, and Your lips are reddish like the bimba fruit. May this beautiful vision of Your lotus face be ever manifest in my heart. Thousands and thousands of other benedictions are of no use to me.'

Gurudev left us to help, serve, and protect his mission—that is our main goal, and if we can do it together, it will be good for our own self and good for others.
