Prabhupada’s Tributes

Dear Prabhupada

Every year we are kindly requested to write about you by your great servants. I would like to say so many nice things not only about you, but also about our Society. Because by glorifying you we are glorifying the whole society as well as devotees who follow your valuable teachings in every aspect by following the footsteps of previous acaryas as you do.

There are so many projects, ideas and preachings that are being put forward. However there are so many important aspects that should be looked at carefully, with love and affection.

“... One of the symptoms of a devotee is that he is so kind, so if our Godbrother becomes ill it is our duty to help him get the proper medicine and treatment so that he can recover.” (Letter to Sukadeva, April 5,1974)

Thus we need to be together to understand that every member of our Society is important for its progress. All your teachings are perfect and only by applying them inteligently we will be able to get to a magnificent and result. We are all Krsna’s instruments to serve your mission faithfully.

“Of course, I can only suggest, and wherever possible that can be applied, but I do not force anyone. After all, you are only working so hard to please Krsna only out of love for me, so there can be no question of force if love is there. We should not ever try to force anyone or reduce our Society to an impersonal business exchange, this will kill everything. Our only purpose in every endevour is simply to make advancement in spiritual life or pleasing Krsna.” - (Letter to Bhakta Das, April 9, 1971)

Mostly devotees have the potential to serve your mission throughout the world and many were personally trained by you. And many of them, great Vaisnavas, are so kind, humble and faithful to you. Above all, they, including women, are capable to push on this mission around the world and develop a very high Krishna consciousness according to your established standard. All they need is to understand the vital importance of your instructions and apply it seriously and generously.

“Our Indian boys and girls are not very much interested to become devotees, but I am seeing that these fair-skinned Americans and European are like angels by coming to Krishna Consciousness increasingly more and more, and that very soon the whole world will become filled with such angles, and so I am very optimistic...”
(Srila Prabhupada Letter 1972)

I am so fortunate to have been accepted by you as your disciple, which was well above my expectations. Only by your causeless mercy we adopted this process of Krsna consciousness and it is impossible to be attracted to external influence except to serve you, Radha-Krsna and sincere servants, forever.

"I am aware that you are feeling my absence just as I am feeling the absence from you. But in the meantime this must be so and Krsna will provide for you as long as you keep chanting Hare Krsna.......If you chant always Hare Krsna, read my books, and preach this philosophy sincerely, then Krsna will provide you with all facility, and you will not fall down into material entanglement." (Letter do Devotees, March 30, 1967)

Prabhupada even though I am not so elevated, I cannot stop to meditate upon your lotus feet and about the beautiful lila of your life. Your importance in my life is imense; without your teachings, without Krsna and without sadhu-sanga, life has no meaning.

Your eternal servant
