success of srila prabhupada

Whatever success is there, it is just due to my firm faith in my spiritual master's instruction. So I am trying to follow. And by His Grace Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakura, you are helping me. So actually, the responsibility will now depend on you.

I am also old man. I may pass away at any moment. This movement should go on, you see, this movement started by Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, then accelerated by Goswamis, and then again Vishvanatha Chakravarti.

Just like whenever there is… Yada yada hi dharmasya glanir bhavati [Bg. 4.7]. When there is some slowness, either Krishna Himself or some representative comes to give it a push.

So you should know it, that this movement should be pushed on. This should not be neglected. And I am glad that you are catching the ideas very nicely, and trying. 

Simple thing: you chant sincerely and follow the rules and regulation. The rules and regulation are not very strict. They are very simple.

I am so pleased and obliged to you that you have adopted. I never expected. When I came first in Boston, I was thinking, "Oh, who will accept these Vaishnava rules and regulations?

So I am very glad that Krishna has sent so many nice boys and girls to help me. Be blessed on this auspicious day. And there is nothing mine. I am simply a postal peon. I am delivering to you what I have heard from my Guru Maharaja. Simply you also act in the same way, and you will be happy, and the world will be happy, and Krishna will be happy.
