Jaya Srila Prabhupada.
I am sorry that we have to be involved in controversies. However, we are acting in Krishna’s service and, hopefully, with a pure spirit of helping to improve our ISKCON.
Prabhupada used to quote an English saying: “England, with all thy faults, I love thee.” Prabhupada said we should feel this way about ISKCON.
In my own life, Krishna is blessing me with great happiness and enthusiasm. All of us should constantly beg Krishna to engage us as pure instruments of His pure devotee, Srila Prabhupada. We are very limited, but Krishna is unlimited, and He can give us unlimited power to serve Prabhupada’s mission.
The world needs a second Hare Krishna Explosion. And like the first Hare Krishna Explosion, this one probably must start in the West, due to its continuing influence. With Krishna’s blessings, on Wednesday morning, March 12th, I will leave California and begin a three-week drive to North Carolina, stopping along the way to do programs.
No pleasure in this world compares to the joy and satisfaction of giving oneself to the Sankirtana movement of Gaura-Nitai. Let us all work together as their happy instruments as they transform the world before our eyes.
With best wishes,
Hridayananda das Goswami
