To My Father, Gour Mohan De (1849-1930)

A pure devotee of Kṛṣṇa, who raised me as a Kṛṣṇa concious child from the beginning of my life.

In my boyhood ages he instructed me how to play the mṛdanga.

He gave me Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa Vigraha to worship, and he gave me Jagannātha-Ratha to duly observe the festival as my childhood play.

He was kind to me, and I imbibed from him the ideas later on solidified by my spiritual master, the eternal father.
