H.D.Goswami’s 2020 Vyasa Puja Offering to Srila Prabhupada

As I reached the age at which you came to America on the Jaladuta and founded your great mission, ISKCON, I found I could understand and appreciate more than ever your bold, straightforward, and skillful presentation of Krishna consciousness. Sociologists confirm that a movement must grow its core of committed followers in order to achieve sustainable, meaningful growth. You expressed this very idea in your unforgettable metaphor — you were looking not for many stars, but for a moon that could actually illumine the darkness of Kali-yuga. H.D.Goswami’s 2020 Vyasa Puja Offering to Srila Prabhupada

I bow in reverence at your lotus feet.

H.D. Goswami’s 2016 Vyasa Puja Offering to Srila Prabhupada

Srila Prabhupada left this world almost forty years ago. He left us a powerful, relevant, international movement and asked us to expand it, or at least maintain it.

In some ways, we did expand and maintain his mission. In other important ways, we did not. Prabhupada often explained that his strategy to make the world Krishna conscious depended on ISKCON’s success in the Western world, since the world follows the West. H.D.
