Markine Bhagavata-dharma – Boro Kripa Koile Krishna – by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada.
Most of us glorify Srila Prabhupad daily by reciting ‘namaste Saraswate deve Gaura vani pracarine, nirvisesa suyawadi paschatya desh tarine’….paschatya desh tarine means deliverer of Western Countries.
Forty Six years ago, on Sep 17th 1965, Srila Prabhupad arrived in USA to preach the timeless message of Krsna Consciousness to Western World. He wanted to start with USA. He stepped ashore in Boston after 35 day journey on board the cargo ship Jaladut from Calcutta, India. During those 35 days, Srila Prabhupad faced 2 massive heart attracts but it did not deter his resolve to preach. He was ready to step into the battlefield….ready to preach boldly without compromise the message of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. It was at Bostons’s Commonwealth Pier where Srila Prabhupad first set foot in the Western world.
When Srila Prabhupad landed in USA, he prayed to Sri Krsna for the deliverance of American people. He wrote a beautiful bhajan/ poem to Sri Krsna in which he says – "I wish that you may deliver them. Therefore, if You so desire their deliverance, only then will they be able to understand Your message."
