JPS: So, this song was written as my Vyasa Puja offering for Srila Prabhupada. It didn’t reach in time to get into the book, the international BBT Book. So, you are one of the first temples to get it.
Devotees: Hari Bol!
JPS: This is supposed to be a type of marching song, or kirtan song. So, what I said on the stage, that’s covered in the first few verses, about the mission of Lord Caitanya. How He was sending the senapati-bhakta, and the rest of the verses are about the senapati-bhakta, Srila Prabhupada and what you can do to serve him.
We asked the Mayapur Chandras and Nara Gopal to sing this first rendition and please sing along the chorus and that’s why we’re handing out the pages. And since there’s more people that pages, please let people look over your shoulder and read next to you. Srila Prabhupada ki,
NGD: Please be extra attentive as this is a Bengali song and this song is being sung for the first time in front of the Lord, Prabhupada and Guru Maharaja. We’re very fortunate that Guru Maharaja is here for Prabhupada Vyasa Puja and for the first time, this song is being sung in front of him.
