Dearest Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my most humble obeisances. All glories to you who has inundated to world with Krishna consciousness through your divine writings.
Your glories are self effulgent, and for those who have the eyes to see they will understand exactly how special and significant you are.
Srila Prabhupada, for me you are love of God, you are just like Lord Nityananda who only thought of delivering the fallen souls who are in complete illusion as to their real identity and are suffering so much in their pursuit of happiness.

Srila Prabhupada, your books are like magic portals into the spiritual realm. For the materialist they defy logic and reason quite simply because they act on the transcendental platform which is beyond paper and print, the mind and the intelligence.
One could easily say that these books are the weapons that destroy the societal illusion of the bodily concept of life and they eradicate the enemies of self realisation.

Srila Prabhupada, you would say "Distribute my books, distribute my books, distribute my books".
There is no qualifications needed to engage in the activity of book distribution, only the desire to do so. Intellectual or simpleton, it does not matter. On the spiritual platform we are all equal and anyone who thinks otherwise, they are in illusion, for they still carry around to greater or lesser degrees the bodily concept of life.
Book distribution is a great leveller, a great purifier, and everyone could and should engage in this activity for their own benefit and for the benefit of society at large.

Srila Prabhupada, I'm sure that you'd agree that all leaders within our society should regard these activities of book distribution, harinam sankirtan (street chanting) and prasadam distribution as the mainstay of this great society, ISKCON. This is what you wanted, not big buildings and fancy programmes for generating income (Income generation can be done by those who are business inclined, generally the householders).
Srila Prabhupada, you said that everyone within the temple should go out and one person can stay back to ring the bell. We all know what that means, but we are negligent in following this instruction, and we think that making the temple attractive is going to spread Krishna consciousness? The only people to benefit are a few of those living locally, the devotees who get maintained and the Indian devotees who appreciate our activities and think that we have become 'good Hindus'.

Srila Prabhupada, you stated that we are vaishnava's or Hare Krishna's, not Hindus and as such we need to make that clear and not think by aligning ourselves with Hinduism that we will become accepted within the general society at large. This is an intellectual misnomer that will backfire against us.
Srila Prabhupada you have stated that Maya is Krishna's empowered servant and as such she is extremely powerful and we should guard ourselves against her influence.

Srila Prabhupada I have said what I've said here because I love you and loving you means taking risks and following your instructions. I am mindful of my failings and my weaknesses but that doesn't mean that I'm ignorant of what should be done and what should not be done.
Let us all consider the Country we live in and all those who have never heard of Krishna and all those who never hear of us or see us just because we are comfortably situated in our wonderful temple and our warm homes. What we need is a plan to inundate the Country with your books and the chanting of the holy names. We need to become a united spiritual family once again where everyone is focused on our aim of spreading Krishna consciousness. We need to discard this faceless sunyavadi impersonalism and replace it with loving personalism instead. We need to greet devotees as long lost friends and consider their feelings as the most important and our own as insignificant. We have to see through the pages of your books and through your instructions. We have to become sastra caksus, to think on every matter and to see through the eyes of scripture.

Srila Prabhupada you know my heart, you know all there is to know about me and therefore you understand my present pain. I am begging you openly, to kindly glance upon me and inject within my heart the desire to become a pure devotee, to become Krishna conscious.
Please forgive all my offences at your lotus feet.

Your extremely fallen servant,

Haridas Thakur das.
