Question:

Is Srila Prabhupada tri-kala jna?

Srila Prabhupada has been described as a saktyavesa-avatara (by Srila Sridhara Maharaja). It has also been described, I believe by Srila Prabhupada himself, that he was a very pious doctor in his previous life. This devotee was thinking that all saktyavesa-avataras are descending from the spiritual world, from their previous life and that they would not have had a previous birth here. It may be argued that some of Caitanya Mahaprabhu's closest assocaiates, like Murari Gupta were Ayurvedic doctors, so this type of occupation or birth does not minimize their divinity in any way. Any comments on this?

Question:

Daily when I go to bed, I desire to get up early in the morning and to chant 16 rounds and perform mangala aarti in the early brahma muhurta hours. It’s past couple of months I am unable to get up feeling lazy and somehow unable to keep and live up to my commitment. I am being deceived continuously by my mind and fooled which I can perceive the next day morning but time evades and I feel am wasting the purpose of rare human form of life. Maharaj please enlighten me how to recover from this slackness.

Partnership Among Vaisnava Sampradayas

Question:

You have made frequent contacts with acaryas of various Vaisnava sampradayas. I feel very inspired by your preaching in this area. Gaura Keshava Prabhu (a disciple of Prabhupada, who has a home at Sri Rangam) mentioned to me: "Before coming to the West, he (Srila Prabhupada) wrote to Visvambhara Goswami(his friend, Radha Ramana Temple Goswami and former Vrndavan mayor) that he wanted to start an organization wherein Vaisnavas from all sampradayas could cooperate to push on Krsna consciousness.Of course ultimately ISKCON was born out of this desire. We do not know exactly how inclusive or exclusive of other types of Vaisnavas and their philosophies and traditions ISKCON will eventual become."

I wanted to know if you envisage any form of strategic partnership among all the Vaisnava sampradayas, since at present, we just have issue-specific or individual-level contacts.
