Srila Prabhupada Stotram

The following Sanskrit prayers to Srila Prabhupada were composed by Sri Ananta Rama Shastri, a Indian Sanskrit scholar who was engaged in working on the Srimad Bhagavatam by Srila Prabhupada in 1976. Srila Prabhupada appreciated these verses so much that he requested the devotees to learn them.

O lord, O Prabhupada, may you always be the object of my vision. Only the name of Krishna can destroy my pride and illusion. Although my mid an intelligence are contaminated by wicked inclinations, I meditate upon your lotus feet in causeless devotion.

dantas tu deva prabhupada namo namas te

In the most holy land of Vrindavana, in Ramana Reti, at the lotus feet of Sri Krishna-Balarama, you are preaching the topmost knowledge of the Supreme Personality, Lord Krishna, who is the fountainhead of religion. O master of the senses, O my lord, Srila Prabhupada, let me offer my obeisances unto you.

namaste namaste kripa-purna-drishti
namaste namas te mahananda-dhatri
namamo namamah punar raksha raksha
prasiddha-prabho pahi mam daksha daksha

I offer my obeisances unto him, whose glances are full of mercy and who is the bestower of transcendental bliss. O renowned lord, protect me and kindly shower your compassion again and again.

Let me offer my obeisances unto my Guru Maharaja, who is a disciple of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta, who is always calm and joyful, and who bears the name of Bhaktivedanta.

The land of Bengal is worshipable by the whole world because Sri Caitanya performed His pastimes there. I offer my obeisances unto Srila Prabhupada, who is full of bliss. He is always in the ecstasy of Lord Gauranga and is therefore immersed in the lotus feet of Radha-Mukunda.
