vande guroḥ śrī-caraṇāravindam


The spiritual master is receiving benediction from the ocean of mercy. Just as a cloud pours water on a forest fire to extinguish it, so the spiritual master delivers the materially afflicted world by extinguishing the blazing fire of material existence. I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master, who is an ocean of auspicious qualities.

Right. But it was written by Srila Vishvanatha Chakravarti Thakura who lived centuries before the concept of iskcon.
I find the prayer still fits, no matter the origin.
