Mahatma Das with Srila Prabhupada

When asked what was Srila Prabhupada like, I explain that my experience of Srila Prabhupada was unlike my experience of any other person I had ever met. In his presence, I spontaneously wanted to give my life to him and Krsna. In his presence, I never felt that any of his desires were impossible to accomplish. In his presence, my desire to help others become Krsna conscious far surpassed my level of compassion. In his presence, the entire world appeared insignificant. And in his presence, we were convinced that we would make the world Krsna conscious.

Who was Srila Prabhupada? Perhaps we will never be fully able to understand or measure his glories, or measure how he was able to effect the lives of millions of people so deeply. We are most fortunate to be able to assist him in some insignificant way. It is his great mercy that he can utilize someone as useless as I am in his and Krsna’s service.

Srila Prabhupada’s glory is that he took people addicted to material life and made them saintly persons, fully engaged them in devotional service, empowered them to spread Krsna consciousness all over the world and established a mission that would continue to spread for the next ten thousands years.

He ordered everyone one of us to give Krsna to everyone we meet and in this way become Gurus. By his mercy it is possible for us to do this.

Srila Prabhupada is inviting everyone serving in ISKCON to take Lord Chaitanya’s desire tree of Divine Love to every town and village, [and electronic device] on earth. To do this successfully, we need to deeply connect to our Founder-Acarya’s life, teachings, mood, and mission. Janme janme prabhu sei. Birth after birth, Srila Prabhupada is our life and soul, and the harmonious living force of ISKCON’s mission.
