The Precious Cargo – A Poem by Sankirtana Das
By Sankirtana Das, ACBSP   |  Aug 30, 2023

In commemoration of the departure of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada on the Jaladhuta.

O Prabhupada

You are a treasure

Who has brought the Treasure

You are eternally wakeful

Calling the sleepers to awaken

You are the Vaikuntha traveler

Transversing the world

First in your vapu and then your vani

You are the most precious cargo of the Jaladhuta

You are the divine dancer of GaurHari

You are the smasher of impersonalism

The pounder of the false ego

You are the proclaim-er

Of the yuga dharma

You are the stirrer of souls

The speaker of countless words of wisdom

The savior of  wayward  lives,

The fixer of calamities

The remover of stumbling blocks

The mender of  broken hearts

The  vendor of the Holy Name

You are the lighthouse

In the dark waters of the Kali-yuga

You are the bringer of Govinda’s love

You do not see who is fit or unfit

You are the beggar

Bestowing the greatest gift

Upon all who will take it.
