Eighlectr Dd-ys - Sri Paitcq-tattvsts MAyapur-IiIat
The shipJaladuta, tossed by the Atlantic's waves, seemed ro sway to rhe rhythmic hlrtana o[ Lord Gaurdnga and His associates. Onboard, Sri Srimad Abhay Charan Bhaktivedanta Swami, the recipient of the rarest mercy ever bestowed, wrote the following poem: "Sri Srirnad Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thikura, who is very dear to Lord Gaurariga, the son ol'Mother Saci, is unparalleled in his scrvicc to the Supreme Lorcl Sri Krsna. He is thc great, saintly spiritual master who bestows intense devotion to Krsna at di[- ferent places throughout the world. "By his strong desire, the holy narne o[ Lord Gaurdnga will spread throughout all the countries o[ the Western world. In all the citics, towns and villages on the carth, from all the oceans, seas, rivers, and springs, everyone will chant the holy name of Krsna. "As the vast mercy of SrI Caitanya Mahaprabhu conquers all directions, a fioocl o[ transcendental ecstasy will certainly cover the lancl. When all the sinful, miserable liv- ing entities become happy, the Vaisnavas' clesire is then fulfilled. "Although rny Guru Maharaja ordered me to accomplish this mission, I am nor wor'- thy or fit to clo it. 1 atn very fallen and insignificant. Therefore, O Lord, rrow I am beg- ging for Your mercy so that I may become worthy, lor You are the wisest and most rxperienced of all. " Thehlrtana of Lord Gauringa and His associates continued on and on without end. The.faladuta plied forward until it reached Boston harbor. As Srt Srlmad A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami's lotus feet touched Western soil for the first time, he prayed "O Lord, I am just like a puppet in Your hands. So if You have brought me here to dance, then make me dance, make me dance, O Lord, make me dance as You like."
