Srila Prabhupada is Krsna-Data-Guru

Srila PrabhupadaMany Gurus are there prepared to give mantra, isn’t it? They are making a profession of giving mantra, mantra vyavasayi, they are professional mantra-gurus. They are always ready to give mantra. “Come here give me one hundred dollars, immediately I’ll give you Krsna!” This is a mantra-vyavasayi. This is the professional business man, but what mantra they give? That is not mantra baba, only words, alphabets, alphabets, not real mantra. They want money, praname and pranama,  pay obeisances and give money, one hundred dollar, two hundred dollar, they want this thing, no Krsna. They cannot give you Krsna. You should understand. Srila Prabhupada is not mantra-data-guru, he is Krsna-data-guru, the Guru who came to give you Krsna, to give you shelter, asraya-data-guru. He is not mantra-data-guru. He taught us how to tread the devotional path, how to walk, how to walk on this path. He made all nice arrangements how to walk on this path leading to Vaikuntha. Yes, like a primary school teacher he catches hold of the hand of the child and teaches to write ‘A, B, C.’ He does like that. Catching hold of our hand he has taught us what other gurus cannot! Other gurus don’t know, they only want pranama and praname. Therefore they have no ability; they have no ability to take to this path of devotional service and teach us how to tread the path. They have no ability how to move there. But Srila Prabhupada made some nice arrangements, sravana, kirtan, arcana, vandana. That is his causeless mercy.

Srila Prabhupada’s ISKCON is Krsna-Samsara

Only giving mantra, he sends the sisyas home? ‘Go home.’ No! He opened hundreds and hundreds of ISKCON temples, centers throughout the world. He made all arrangements for staying there, getting nice prasada. He made nice arrangements in all the ISKCON centers. Those who are grha-tyagis, those who have already left home, they will stay there, always and engage in hari-bhajan in the service of Lord Hari. But those who are grhastha, grhastha-sisyas will they stay in their grha only? No, no, no. They should come at intervals here to this ISKCON Mandir and associate with sadhu-vaisnava and hear hari-katha. Also there is the arrangement of many, many festivals, many festivals, many festivals. In every week we have a Sunday festival! In every week, in every month, every year. Many festivals are taking place, at least you should come and join during this festival time, you grhasthas. Come and join the festival, see the festival, hear Krsna-katha, accept nice prasada, very sweet Krsna-prasada, yes. If you get prasada and hear Krsna-katha then you have established your relationship with Guru. Guru-samsara means Krsna-samsara, transcendental world. Many big festivals are going on, kirtans, arati, arcana, day and night, twenty-four hours going on, going on. Come and see! You’ll get so much pleasure! So much joyfulness and blissfulness is there. Nice sri-vigraha, very beautiful sri-vigraha is here, chant, dance here before sri-vigraha, hear Krsna-katha, taste this nice, sweet, nectarean Krsna-prasada, maha-prasada and your life will be successful. All your suffering, unhappiness, anxiety will be gone, gone, no more, no more, yes.

This arrangement is there, he has made these arrangements, he has made these arrangements how we can walk on this path of devotional path. Not only that he sends the preachers to all corners of the world, towns, villagers, even to every home, yes. Thereby he attracts people, “Come here! Come to our ISKCON center, ISKCON Mandir. Stay here and get prasada, do hari-kirtan.

(‘radha) krsna’ bolo, sange calo,
ei-matra bhikha cai
(Gitavali, Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura)

This is the only bhikha I am begging. Utter ‘Radha Krsna!’ Come with me! Come with me! Come with me!

Srila Prabhupada’s Lotus Feet is the only Shelter for the Suffering Jivas of Kali-Yuga

You grhasthas, you cannot do service. Please utter Radha Krsna day and night, twenty-four hours, when ever you get opportunity come to our Mandir, come to our Mandir. We will take all your responsibility. Chant Hare Krsna and dance and take Krsna-prasada! He has made all these arrangements. He is not only mantra-data-guru, he is asraya-data-guru. he is not only the Guru to give mantra, he gives shelter, gives shelter, gives Krsna. He takes all the responsibility of his disciples, yes.

You are indebted, you have many debts to pay back. To demigods, to all living entities, to your father and mother, yes to all humanity, many debts, how can you pay back? Can you? You can’t. But you come and enter into Krsna-guru-samsara, Krsna-samsara, all nice arrangements are there. Develop bhakti, pure bhakti then all your debts are cleared up. I am running, running very swiftly running but you cannot keep pace with me, you cannot keep pace with me, very swift. More then the speed of the wind, yes. Such speed. Alright come slowly, come slowly, come slowly. If you cannot run speedily come slowly, come slowly. We will never spare you! We will never spare you! We will catch hold of your sikha and drag you. Yes! We have taken up this resolution, yes we have taken up that resolution. He is so merciful, supremely merciful. He never hates the grhasthas. You are grhastha, keep aside! Keep aside, push aside your maya-samsara,material samsara! Come slowly, come slowly and enter into our samsara. There maybe some delay still we won’t spare you. We will catch hold of your sikha and drag you. So merciful he is. Think of how merciful he is.
