Srila Prabhupada Lives On
BY: SUVIGRAH GOVIND DAS (Calcutta)
This is an absurd, heart breaking comment by a senior devotee of 2nd generation of ISKCON Kolkata, H.G. Ashray Gauranga das -- "Prabhupada is Dead". Can we imagine the future of ISKCON? What will the generations coming learn?
It is really high time that seniors be taught to respect our Founder and Acharya, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, by whose mercy we All know what is Krishna and Bhakti today. It is His teachings through His books by which we have learned to know the most secret of All knowledge -- devotion towards The Supreme Personality of Godhead. Let us all together really glorify Him in the three worlds as we sing daily, ebe jaśa ghuṣuk tribhuvana... not just do formality.
I am not writing this as an envy towards Ashray Gauranga das, but I am heart struck by his comment. Let this type of comment be not repeated by anyone ever... ever in future and offend our eternal well wisher and our beloved Spiritual father who is like Narad Muni, nitya-siddha, mahabhagawat, and who is Eternally Living - only we should have eyes to see.
We will all die with time, no matter how big a preacher we may be, but Srila Prabhupada will live, at least for the next 10,000 years for sure. But who will remember us even after 100 years or so?
