Prayer to Lord Brahma for becoming Lord Krishna's Servant

"O Lord, from this very day, rid me of all egotism pertaining to body, caste and stage of life, and awaken my true nature as servant of Krishna. 

Give me the boon that I may always in the company of devotees have a taste for the congregational chanting of Shri Krishna's Names, and that without any regard for the world, I may dance and clap my hands like a madman! 

Make me with ecstatic love for Krishna! Let me leave everything and simply take shelter at Krishna's feet."

Saying this prayer, I offered my obeisance to Lord Brahma and thus ended my journey to Brahmadham Satyalok."

(from: Tridandi Swami Bhakti Hriday Bon Maharaj's "On the Way to Vaikuntha", pages 185-186)

Pranam to Swami Bon

"I make my obeisances with deep and loving devotion for ever and ever to my Gurudev, who is known by the name of Srimad Bhakti Hriday Bon, who being attracted by the lotus-feet of Radha-Madhab is for ever and ever immersed in the perennial stream of supramundane joy emanating therefrom.

I bow down again and again with loving devotion to my Gurudev who is a wandering Tridandi mendicant and erudite Vaishnava (who) is always following in the wake of Sri Rupa; I make my obeisances in all humility, at all times with sincere loving devotion to my Gurudev who resides happily in the
Kunja (bower) allotted to him by Shrimati Radhika, the dearest Divine Consort of the Supreme Lord Sri Krishna who is Rasa epitomized, who has taken to the way of Bhakti in consonace with the teachings of Sri Chaitanya - nay, whose whole pattern of life is moulded on the teachings and precepts of Sri Chaitanya."
