My dear spiritual children and others,
Please accept my best wishes and prayers to Lord Krishna for your speedy advancement in Krishna Consciousness. All glories to His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada! ISKCON’s Founder Acarya.
August 10th in Sri Mayapur Dham in the auspicious day of Sri Krishna’s decent to this world, its Sri Krishna Janmashtami. This whole planet is blessed by the decent of Krishna from His spiritual abode Goloka Vrindavan and India is particularly blessed as Lord Krishna enacted His pastimes in India. I hope you can spend the day in remembering and glorifying and hearing about Krishna’s transcendental names, qualities and pastimes. By the mercy of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, we have the opportunity to get the mercy of Lord Krishna through the Bhakti-yoga process. This is normally, extremely rare but the mercy of Lord Sri Krishna Caitanya and Lord Nityananda it is now sperad all over the world.
This day is a special day to awaken our ecstatic love for Lord Krishna. Newer devotees are yet to awaken the ecstatic love, for them we offer prayers and blessings – “krishne matir astu”. For those who have already advanced in their devotional service, so that they may continue always, we offer the prayers and blessings “krishne matir huhu” – as given by and authorized by Sri Krishna Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
Your Well-wisher Always,
