My dear Jayasacinandana,

Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter of January 22, 1976, and I have noted the contents. Thank you very much for your nice translation of Markine Bhagavata-dharma. It is well appreciated. I think it can be included in the front of the new printing of the song book, and it can be sung in kirtana like the other songs of Bhaktivinode Thakura. I have included a few corrections below which can be noted. The other prayer can be called Prayer to the Lotus Feet of Krsna, and I will be sending comments on that shortly.


Verse 2: synonyms: ei—in this
ugra-sthane—terrible place
translation: . . . to this terrible place.

Verse 3: synonyms: prasanna—is happy or jubilant

Verse 5: transliteration: bujhale
synonyms: bujhale
nija-vasa—under your controlling power

Verse 8: synonyms: kane—by aural reception
bara bara—again and again

Verse 9: translation: accumulated in the core of the heart

Verse 15: synonyms: dhara—determination
translation: . . . in my mind there is only great determination

Hoping this meets you well,

Your ever well wisher,

A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
