"I bow my head in eternal obeisance to my Gurudev, the best of acharyas,
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj. He is the ever vigilant, stalwart
guardian of the current of pure devotion whose highest form flows from our
most worshippable Sri Rupanuga Guru-varga in their exclusive dedication to
Mahabhav, Srimati Radharani."

adhyasitam purvatamair maharsibhih
aham tarisyami duranta-param
"I shall cross over the insurmountable ocean of nescience by being firmly
fixed in the service of the lotus feet of Krishna. This was approved by the
previous acharyas, who were fixed in firm devotion to the Lord, Paramatma,
the Supreme Personality of Godhead."
