Swami Bon Maharaj's darshan of Lord Shiva

"Suddenly, my closed eyes were opened and I began to see, as if with newly gifted vision, a golden lotus floating down the current of the Ganges, that carries the fragrance of the lotus feet of Lord Vishnu.
It filled all the directions with its light, and when the lotus opened up and blossomed, blue-throated Lord Mahesvar Shiva himself appeared from it, with a bodily lustre outshining the sun itself!"

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."
