这是多么美妙:圣帕布帕德隐迹日的祷文

第十三卷,5
20121117

 

最亲爱的施瑞拉-帕布帕德:

请接受我对您莲花足下尘土谦卑的顶拜. 一切荣耀都归于您.

年复一年,对我来说庆祝您离开这世界的纪念日越来越艰难。在您离开的时候,我还只是我灵性生命中襁褓的婴儿。我刚刚睁开双眼看到您仁慈地分享给我们的主的超然真理。然而一个孩子怎么能够了解这绝对真理?我只是对您有着深深地依附。1967年当您坐在纽约的贝斯-以色列医院的病榻上的时候,您授权了这样的情感:“我不认识奎师那,我只认识我的古茹-玛哈茹阿佳。”

直到现在,在事隔35年之后,籍着您的仁慈,我获得了施瑞奎师那的一点点但是如此珍贵的吸引,祂的名字,祂的名声,祂的同游,以及这片土地,祂最深爱的施瑞温达文圣地。对这一切,我是如此的感激。但我得诚实;我最强的依附仍然是您,只是您而已。否则会怎样呢?您是我和奎师那之间的连接。通过对您的服务,我服务祂。您的训示永远都是我心中最重要的事情。

您亲自告诉我:“勇敢地传教,并对圣名充满信心。”这训示赋予了我生命中一切好运的诞生,并将继续支持我到最后一息。为了追寻这个训令,我训示我自己的门徒做同样的事情;我们一起,与我们整个益世康(ISKCON)的运动一道,竭尽全力地广泛传扬圣名的荣耀。如果说在我的生命中有任何忧伤的话,那就是,随着年事渐高,我发现还有那么的服务需要履行,但是完成它们的时间却是如此有限。

  “您的训示总是我心中最重要的事情。”

 
您亲自告诉我:“勇敢地传教,并对圣名有信心。”

 

尽管如此,仍有深深的满足,这来自于看到通过您忠实的追随者的服务,全世界数不尽的人们被您的圣恩所感动。即使在施瑞温达文圣地,这也是事实。

有一天,我们的绕拜队伍拜访了布茹阿佳的一个遥远村庄。我们刚进入村子一位农夫就看见了我们高喊:“佳依 帕布帕德!佳依 帕布帕德!佳依 帕布帕德!”还放下了他装满牛粪的推车。听到他的叫声的附近其他村民也大声地呼唤了起来:“帕布帕德!帕布帕德!帕布帕德!”这就像一曲超然的合唱,是钻进我的耳朵的美妙音乐。这是多么美妙呀,让温达文的美名传遍世界的您,现在甚至受到了那些居住在此的居民的荣耀和忆念。

同一天的晚些时候,同村的一位老师邀请我去他简陋的家中。它只不过是由几间房组成的飘摇欲坠的居所,后院子里还养着三头奶牛和一头年迈的水牛。当我们步入一间布满灰尘的房间时,我惊讶地看到一整套您的英文版《圣典博伽瓦谭》摆放在一尘不染的书架上。注意到我的惊喜,老师微笑着说,“我只读您的灵性导师的书籍。无论我知道有关温达文的什么我都是从他那里学到的。”站在那里,能够成为您的门徒我非常自豪。

正当我们离开村子的时候,一个人注意到了我们跟他的朋友说,“他们是谁?”朋友回答道,“他们是从茹阿玛-瑞提来的布茹阿佳-巴希(指布茹阿佳圣地的居民)。”他并没有称我们为外国人;他把我们认为是纯正的布茹阿佳-巴希。我想不出比被称为是布茹阿佳-巴希更让值得荣耀的了,特别是被一位布茹阿佳-巴希这样称呼。圣帕布帕德,感谢您把我们带到了温达文,我们永恒的家园,在这里,籍着您的仁慈,我们得到了当地居民的拥抱。

在这里度过余生不是什么难事。事实上,您对此已授权,您写道:

“根据社会四阶层和灵性四晋阶的制度,一个人应该在中年的时候隐出家庭生活:pancasordhvam vanam vrajet. 一个人应该在50岁的时候自愿退出家庭生活,并到温达文或森林中去。圣帕拉德·玛哈茹阿佳是这样建议的。”《圣典博伽瓦谭》7.5.5

当然,我知道对我来说退休还太早。您给我去传教的训示还是完整无缺的。即使这意味着反抗自然法则,我仍会逐年千倍地增加传教力度。为什么不呢?您就是这么做的。在69岁的高龄,您冒着巨大的挑战将奎师那意识/知觉带到了西方。请让我追随着您辉煌的足迹吧!

在奎师那意识/知觉运动中,我们声明的目标是总有一天,我们怀着净化的心灵,再一次面对面地见到主。但愿我的说辞没有违反我们的传统,我珍视的目标是能再一次面对面地见到您们——我挚爱的主和导师。再次得到您的达尔珊就自然意味着见到奎师那,因为在灵性世界,在您对祂的服务中我将服务您。这将是我最大的快乐,我最大的珍宝。

但看起来还要等上很长的时间。幸运的是,我有时候会在梦中与您相见。您一次和您的门徒哈亚贵瓦说,虽然大部分的梦都是仅仅是心意在作祟而已,但要是梦见了灵性导师却具有着灵性的深意。

最近我梦见一天清晨,我在某处您靠近海滨的房门外轻声地念诵。某个时刻您只穿着岗萨走了出来说,“我要去沐浴了。”

我紧张地问道,“我能和您一起去吗?圣帕布帕德?”您点头同意,我和您一起来到了海滩上。

来到岸边,我看到海浪有些汹涌,所以我说道,“圣帕布帕德,我能和你一起下水协助您吗?”

您又一次轻轻点了点头,我扶着您的手随您走入水中。当第一波向您袭来的时候,我紧紧地抓着您,您迅速地拍了些水在自己的身上。片刻之后,您示意我们应该离开了。

我们从水里出来,我帮您擦干身体并把衣服递给您。当您穿好衣服,我把您的眼镜和手杖递给您,然后我们走回您的房间。

离房子还有几米之遥时,您停了下来并转向我:

“你干得不错,”您说,“谢谢你所做的服务。

我尴尬万分,以至于无法作答。 

您又接着说,“如果你可以有个愿望,那个愿望是什么?”

我想了一会儿回答道,“我一直都想成为您贴身的仆人,圣帕布帕德。”

“好的,”您说,“你可以和我一起旅行。你的服务是为我做好沐浴的准备,为我做饭和给我提书包。”

我受宠若惊地说,“我什么时候能开始呢?”

您笑着回答道:“当你传教的工作结束的时候。”

圣帕布帕德,这仅仅是个梦,但这又是一个关于您的梦,所以意义重大。而且如果美梦真的可以成为现实的话,我祈祷这个梦能够成为现实。直到那一刻来临之际,我会继续我在这里的服务,充满信心地追随您的训示:“勇敢地传教,并对圣名充满信心。”

 

您永恒的仆人,
因卓杜牧纳·斯瓦米

 

How Wonderful It Is : Srila Prabhupada Disappearance Day Offering

Volume 13, Chapter
Nov 17, 2012

Dearest Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obeisances in the dust of your lotus feet. All glories to you.

As each year passes, it becomes more difficult for me to observe and celebrate the anniversary of your departure from this world. When you left I was in the infancy of my spiritual life. My eyes were just opening to the transcendental truths about the Lord which you so kindly shared with us. But what can a child understand about the Absolute truth? My attachment was to you and you alone. You authorized such sentiments when you sat up in your bed in New York’s Beth Israel Hospital in 1967 and said, “I don’t know Krsna. I only know my Guru Maharaja.”

It is only now, thirty-five years later, that I have obtained, by your mercy, a tiny but precious attraction to Sri Krsna, His name, His fame, His associates and this land, His most beloved Sri Vrindavan Dhama. For that I am very grateful. But I will be honest; my strongest attachment is still to you and you alone. How could it be otherwise? You are my connection to Krsna. Through service to you, I serve Him. Your instructions are always the foremost thing in my mind.

You told me personally: “Preach boldly and have faith in the holy names.” That one instruction gave birth to all the good fortune in my life and will continue to maintain me until my final breath. In pursuit of that order, I have in turn instructed my own disciples to do the same; together, we, along with our entire ISKCON movement, are trying our best to spread the glories of the Holy Names far and wide. If there is any lamentation in my life, it is simply that as old age approaches I see there is still so much service to be done, but so little time in which to accomplish it.

Nevertheless, there remains the deep satisfaction that comes from seeing countless people all over the world touched by the mercy of your divine grace through the service of your faithful followers. And that is true even here in Sri Vrindavan Dhama.

The other day our parikrama party visited a remote village in Vraja. As we entered the village a farmer noticed us and called out, “Jai Prabhupada, Jai Prabhupada! Jai Prabhupada!” as he loaded his bullock cart with cow dung. Others villagers who were nearby heard his cries, and also called out loudly “Prabhupada! Prabhupada! Prabhupada!” It was like a transcendental chorus and it was music to my ears. How wonderful it is that you, the one who made Vrindavan famous throughout the world, are honored and remembered by those who live here even now.

Later that day, a school teacher in the same village invited me into his humble home. It was nothing more than a ramshackle dwelling with a few rooms and courtyard that had in it three cows and an old buffalo. As we entered a dusty room I was shocked to see a full set of your English Srimad Bhagavatams resting on a spotlessly clean shelf. Noting my surprise the schoolteacher beamed and said, “I only read your spiritual master’s books. Whatever I know about Vrindavan I have learned from him.” Standing there, I was so proud to be your disciple.

As we were leaving the village, another man noticed us and said to his friend, “Who are they?” The friend replied, “They are Vraja-vasis from Rama Reti.” He didn’t call us as foreigners; he identified as genuine Vraja-vasis. I can’t think of anything more honourable than being called a Vraja-vasi, especially by a Vraja-vasi. Thank you Srila Prabhupada for bringing us here to Vrindavan, our eternal home, where, by your mercy, we are embraced by the local people.

It would not be difficult for me to stay here for the rest of my life. In fact, you have authorized it, for you have written:

“According to the varnasrama institution, one has to retire from family life in middle age: pancasordhvam vanam vrajet. One should voluntarily retire from family life at the age of fifty and go to Vrindavan or a forest.

This is recommended by Srila Prahlada Maharaja.” [Srimad Bhagavatam, 7.5.5]

Of course, I know it’s too early for me to retire. Your instruction to me to preach remains intact. Even if it means defying the laws of nature, I will try to increase my preaching a thousand-fold as each year passes. And why not? You did it. At the advanced age of sixty-nine, you took on the greatest challenge of bringing Krsna consciousness to the west. May I follow in your illustrious footsteps!

In the Krsna consciousness movement our stated goal is to one day, with purified hearts, see the Lord face to face again. I hope I am not breaking with tradition by saying that my cherished goal is to once again see you, my beloved Lord and master, face to face. Having your darsan again will naturally mean seeing Krsna, for in the spiritual world, I will serve you in your service to Him. That will be my greatest pleasure and my greatest treasure.

But it seems such a long time to have to wait. Fortunately I sometimes see you in dreams. You once told your disciple Hayagriva that although most dreams are simply functions of the mind, dreams of the spiritual master are of spiritual significance.

Recently I dreamt I was chanting softly outside your room one morning somewhere near the seaside. At one point you came outside wearing only a gamcha and said, “I am going to take my bath.”

Nervously I said, “May I come with you Srila Prabhupada?” You nodded and I followed you down to the beach.

Reaching the shore, I saw the sea was somewhat rough so I said, “Srila Prabhupada, may I accompany you into the water to assist you?”

Again you nodded slightly and I held your hand as you entered the water. As the first waves crashed against you, I held you firmly and you quickly splashed some water on yourself. Shortly thereafter you indicated we should leave.

We came out of the water and I helped dry you off and then handed you your clothes. When you were dressed, I gave you your glasses and finally your cane and we started walking back to your room.

A few meters from the house, you stopped and turned to me.

“You did well,” you said. “Thank you for your service.”

I was too embarrassed to reply.

Then you said, “If you could have one wish granted, what would it be?”

I thought for a moment and replied, “I’ve always wanted to be your personal servant, Srila Prabhupada.”

“Alright,” you said. “You can travel with me. Your service will be to prepare my bath, cook for me and carry my bags.”

Stunned I said, “When can I begin?”

You smiled and said, “When your preaching work is finished.”

Srila Prabhupada, it was only a dream, but then again, it was a dream about you and thus it was very significant. And if ever a dream were to come true, I pray it will be that one. Until then I will continue with my service here, faithfully following your instruction to: “Preach boldly and have faith in the holy names.

 

Your eternal servant,
Indradyumna Swami
