An offering to one of the most ecstatic dancers

This was written by my Guru Maharaj, H.H. Bhakti Caitanya Swami, on the occassion of H.H. Bhaktimarga Swami's Vyasa Puja which we celebrated this Sunday.

Dear Bhakti Marg Maharaja,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
It is a great pleasure and privilege to be able to share this wonderful occasion with you, even though indirectly.You are one of my very dear Godbrothers. I appreciate so much how you're dedicated to serving Srila Prabhupada in creative ways - walking across Canada and organizing the most ecstatic dramas. Through both of these activities you've attracted the attention of so many people, and brought them to Krishna consciousness in greater numbers than so many other senior disciples of Srila Prabhupada. So are definitely very successful in your presentation of Krishna consciousness.
You're really an exciting devotee, and you're making a very big difference in the lives of so many devotees, and endearing yourself so much to SrilaPrabhupada by doing these things.
You're also one of the most ecstatic dancers in the Krishna consciousness movement. Despite not being a young man you dance better than practically anyone half your age. This is because you transcendentally relish the holy names and get a wonderful spiritual taste from them. From this we can see that you're chanting completely without offences.
I'm looking forward to getting more and more of your association, and seeing how you help transform South Africa. Please continue to be kind to me, and give me your association.Hoping this meets you well.
Your servant,
Bhakti Caitanya Swami

This is so wonderful. It is so sweet when we see (or hear, in this case) Godbrothers, especially disciples of Srila Prabhupada, glorifying each other. It sets a wonderful example for the rest of us aspiring devotees. Thank you for sharing mathaji!!
