Srila Prabhupada feels the pain of a disciple leaving

    Posted on August 9, 2014

Recently ... one of Srila Prabhupada's disciples had left the Krsna consciousness movement and was encountering all sorts of personal problems. When Prabhupada spoke to the disciple's wife, the words seemed to come right from the core of his heart. "Tell him to come back. He is a very intelligent boy." He glanced at the disciple's child and said, "Now you become a pure
devotee and rescue your father." 

Tears welled up in Srila Prabhupada's eyes. His gravity affected the whole atmosphere. "It is like when I cut my finger -- the pain is felt in the mind as well. Similarly, when my disciple has some difficulty, I feel the pain, also."

Gopala Acarya dasa -- from a 1978 BTG
