Wonderful Prabhupada

    Posted on August 20, 2014

Tamala Krsna Goswami: If someone wants to understand what Srila Prabhupad was like, he should read about Krsna's intimate devotees and associates in transcendental books like Nectar of Devotion and Krsna. Actually, Srila Prabhupad manifested all the qualities of the eternal associates of Krsna. His humor was completely sublime, his compassion was sublime and transcendental. Courage, competitiveness--all the qualities we read about in Krsna and Nectar of Devotion were manifested in Srila Prabhupad. He was the living embodiment of Krsna-Krsna's representative. We learned about Krsna by seeing Srila Prabhupad. And we learned to believe in Krsna by seeing Prabhupada, because we could see that here was a person who had actually come from the spiritual world to be among us. So "beautiful devotee" means that he was a pure devotee of Lord Krsna, with all transcendental, beautiful
qualities. Srila Prabhupad called a chapter of one of his books "Wonderful Krsna." And Srila Prabhupad was Krsna's representative--so, "wonderful Prabhupada." Everything he did was wonderful. Everything. All the qualities possessed by the greatest personalities were present in Srila Prabhupad to a wonderful degree.
