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.

There is neither sharp nor dull in the capacity of sentient beings.
If asked why this is so, it is because an introduction is sufficient.

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.
