Dear Sriman Jonathan,

My dandavat pranams to you.

How unexpected, and how kind it is that you took the trouble to remember me.

You must still be in Hawaii.

I listened to the audio file which I had not heard before. One portion of Srila Prabhupada speaking, beginning with “The human society cannot anymore be allowed to continue a Godless civilization at the risk of decreasing truthfulness, hygienic principles, forgiveness, and mercifulness.” and extending to:

“If somebody has no sufficient money, it is very hard for him to get justice from the court. And if anyone can simply bluff by so-called advancement of knowledge, he is offered the doctorate degree. If a man is poor, he is at once accepted as non-civilized. If a man is falsely proud, he is accepted as civilized. By frustration, people are gradually becoming communists and hippies, and the guardians of the society must now take up the situation very seriously, without further delay. The Krishna Consciousness movement is meant for overhauling the whole situation.”

is from a letter Srila Prabhupada sent to Pope Paul VI (Montreal, 3 August, 1968).

It is all very beautiful, and still true. Now the Democrats are openly running a communist (called socialist), Bernie Sanders, to be nominated as their candidate for president of the USA. We must hope the guardians of society will “now take up the situation very seriously, without further delay.”

Who are these guardians? The devotees are the only true guardians, as they are the only shelter of all jivas.

But who will take up the work of the guardians? Will you do it? Will you become serious about taking up the work of Krishna Consciousness, “without further delay”? I pray you will. Otherwise you will spend the rest of your God-given human life languishing in sloganeering rather than preaching; and firing blanks rather than chanting Krishna’s Holy Names.

Worlds Largest Source 4 Spiritual Literature Worlds Largest Temple

We are not interested in the “Worlds Largest Source 4 Spiritual Literature” or the “World’s Largest Temple.” Our interest is in the worlds purest spiritual literature and the place of purest seva to the Supreme Lord.

Trust you are well thinking Krishna’s Names reading Prabhupada’s Books

That is not sufficient. That is for the shallow thinkers. One must chant Krishna’s names congregation-ally (Sankirtana) and read under the guidance of a higher vaishnava, with the intention of service to the shastra and the vaishnavas. Otherwise, it is all so much fluff and bubbles, with no substance.

I am happy to hear from you and hope it will not be so long until the next time.

I pray this finds you well in all respects.

Prabhupada Aloha
Hari-śauri Das:~ Our success is in the Spiritual Master’s pleasure, not the public’s pleasure.

Prabhupāda:~ Yes, that is bhakti. Otherwise why Krishna says, sarva- dharmān parityajya mām ekam śaranam vraja Bg 18.66 “You haven’t got to please so many religious instructions. You simply please Me.”

“Chant Hare Krishna and be happy~!~”
