Nectar of Prabhupada’s guidance
My first exposure to Prabhupada was five years ago when I just casually dropped in at the ISKCON temple at camp Pune. There were tables there distributing books and I bought “Teachings of Queen Kunti”.
I read it and was amazed at Prabhupada’s clarity of thought and how brilliantly he elucidated Krishna Consciousness.
That was the day and today – I am still reading Prabhupada’s writings – be they his purports in Bhagavad Gita, in Bhagavatam, and his articles in Back to Godhead.
Every word, every sentence has so much clarity and logic.
I had a chance to attend Prabhupada’s lecture at Cross Maidan in Bombay when he first gave a talk in Bombay. I saw the ads. And the venue was so close to my house. But I did not go. So fallen I am.
Now I know the value of Guru.
Sri guru carana padma,kevala bhakti sadma.
I bow to his lotus feet with great awe and reverence.
By his grace one can cross the ocean of material suffering and obtain the mercy of Krishna.
