When my Gurudeva was in this world, I could not realize his glories, but now I am realizing them. I am very unqualified and unworthy, and I am without knowledge of any Western languages besides a little English. Still, due to the very small amount of service I rendered to the lotus feet of my Gurudeva, you see that so many devotees throughout the world are hearing from me. Also, I am writing volumes of books, and when I read those very same books, I am in great wonder how they could have come from my hand and heart. I wanted to tell you much more, but the doctor has warned me not to speak very much. So, I offer my millions of heartfelt obeisances to my Gurudeva.
Jaya nitya-līlā-praviṣṭa oṁ viṣṇupāda Śrī Śrīmad Bhakti Prajñāna Keśava Gosvāmī Mahārāja ki jaya! I want to say one more thing: tell the devotees throughout the world that now I am quite okay. I went to Navadvīpa and Calcutta in Bengal only to pay respects to my śikṣa-gurus, Parama Pūjyapāda Śrīla Bhaktivedānta Vāmana Mahārāja and Parama Pūjyapāda Śrīla Bhaktivedānta Trivikrama Mahārāja, because they were both in the hospital. When I arrived I took some of their suffering and I was thus admitted in the hospital. They were both discharged and are now well.
