Heart & Soul
Renowned World Ācārya Oṁ Viṣṇupāda Aṣṭottara-śata Śrīla A.C. Bhaktivedānta Svāmī Prabhupāda
tomāra milane bhāi, ābāra se sukha pāi,
gocāraṇe ghuri dina bhora
katô vane chuṭāchuṭi, vane khāi luṭāpuṭi,
sei dina kabe habe mora
(Jaladuta prayer,verse 8)
bhajahũ re mana, śrī nanda-nandana
jaya rādhā-mādhava kuñja-bihārī
These songs express Śrīla Prabhupāda’s life and soul.
Yuga Ārcārya Oṁ Viṣṇupāda Aṣṭottara-śata Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārājahā! devi kāku-bhara-gadgadayādya-vācā
yāce nipatya bhuvi daṇḍavad udbhaṭārtiḥ
asya prasādam abudhasya janasya kṛtvā
gāndharvike nija-gaṇe gaṇanāṁ videhi
tavaivāsmi tavaivāsmi na jīvāmi tvayā vinā
iti vijñāya devi tvaṁ naya māṁ caraṇāntikam
These two ślokas are our Gurudeva’s heart and soul, and this mood he wanted to preach throughout the world.
(Śrī Gāndharvā-samprārthanāṣṭakam 2 & Śrī Vilāpa-kusumāñjali 96)
Viśva Bandhu Oṁ Viṣṇupāda Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Madhusūdana Gosvāmī Mahārājadevi duḥka-kula-sāgarodare

nirvāpayet parama-śītalam āśrayāmi
( Śrī Vilāpa-kusumāñjali 8 & Sri Radha-rasa-sudha-nidhi 13)
