A Fateful Meeting

At a young age bhakti in him excited,

Fateful meeting with guru again reignited.


Course of my history to change from that day,

Had profound effect what the guru did say.


From that instruction future Prabhupada was born,

To give cure for suffering world of intelligence shorn.


Transformation not to happen right away,

But in him Bhaktisiddhanta’s words to stay.


That young disciple soon to start a spiritual revolution,

His tireless preaching to remove many a mind’s confusion.


I worship him who Bhaktivedanta name to earn,

His favor upon me no way ever to return.
