Dear Devotees,

Please accept our most humble obeisances
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

We thank you all for the wonderful heartfelt prayers and blessings that you offered to His Holiness Bhakti Tirtha Maharaja, during his final pastimes in this world. He desired his departure, as well as his life to be an offering to Srila Prabhupada, Sri Sri Radha Damodara, and also to us all, to help deepen our inspiration and determination to traverse the path of the spiritual aspirant, from where we are at present, all the way to the Spiritual world, just as he himself did.

As with any departures, we feel separation and intensely anticipate the blissful reunion with our beloved associates. The glory of the Vaishnava siddhanta is that we can always be close to those ascended Vaishnava masters through keeping their memory, guidance and blessings within our hearts and mind. We achieve this as we focus our hearts on the legacy they have left for us. Thus our focus becomes the gateway to reunion. The Sanskrit word for singular focus is Samadhi. Today, we invite you all to help us remember and glorify one of Srila Prabhupadas' most sincere, and dedicated generals by playing a deep and meaningful role in maintaining his wonderful contribution to ISKCON and the world by helping to manifest his Samadhi in Gita Nagari, and in this way more deeply establish the legacy of his service to Srila Prabhupada.

There are different levels of offering that one may make to this wonderful project. We invite you to visit www.btswami.com/samadhi for additional details. If you have any questions, please contact Sri Vrindavan das, Samadhi Fundraising Coordinator at sudhar108@yahoo.com and (732)423-9092.

We humbly beg you to take part in this wonderful seva to one of Srila Prabhupadas’ dearest sons, Bhakti Tirtha Maharaja, and may this seva open our hearts even more, intensifying and deepening our dedication in service to the mission of Srila Prabhupada, as Maharaja so dearly desired. Thank you. Hare Krishna.

“ .....So in the mood of Vasudeva Datta, I would like to ask you, Can you arrange that their sufferings come to me so that many can be freed from their anguish and thus joyfully serve you and return to Krishna with fewer encumbrances?

... .............Whatever we need in order to be better servants for Srila Prabhupäda’s mission—let it happen or come to us; and whatever we need to have taken away to become pure in Srila Prabhupäda’s service— let it be taken away” So, in this spirit I submit my offering to you for the year 2005..... ” - Bhakti Tirtha Maharaja, in his Vyasa Puja Offering to Srila Prabhupada in 2004
