Though a blog is a far cry from a formal work, let me begin by offering my respectful homage to my spiritual master, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. It is by Srila Prabhupada’s efforts that the spiritual message of devotional service to Lord Krishna has taken root in the West, has gained new vitality in India, and has spread all over the world. And it is by Srila Prabhupada’s grace that he has given me the opportunity to assist him in his service to Lord Krishna.
I hope that by the grace of my spiritual master and Krishna the thoughts in this web diary will be worthwhile. And I hope that readers will find here something of value for their spiritual lives, and sometimes contribute spiritually valuable thoughts of their own.
I stop here, to give precedence to a matter of urgency, which will appear in the next entry.
