Never Compromised

Srila Prabhupada Quote of the Day:
“…never compromised…”

Monday, 3 January, 1972
Letter to Giriraja

“The fact is that I am the only one in India who is openly criticizing, not only demigod worship and impersonalism, but everything that falls short of complete surrender to Krishna. My Guru Maharaja never compromised in His preaching, nor will I nor should any of my students. We are firmly convinced that Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and all other are His part and parcel servants.

This we must declare boldly to the whole world, that they should not foolishly dream of world peace unless they are prepared to surrender fully to Krishna as Supreme Lord.”

    Dear Prabhus.

    Please accept my humble obeisances all glories to Srila Prabhupada.

    Srila Prabhupada is the master disciple. He’s showing us by his example how to be a first class disciple. That example is continuing and the revelations will continue as we read his original books through out the rest of our lives. The perfection of life is to follow strictly the bona fide spiritual master and make his orders the life and soul of our disciplic position. By repeating without change his eternal message of how to love God, Krsna will be our the perfection of life. He has told us this many times and he has masterfully followed it himself in the most perfect manner. Indeed he continues to do so. So as much as we follow purely we will become leaders but that following means to become as much as sincerely possible a master disciple.

    The carpentry master has with in himself the apprentice. The master may draw on the experience and knowledge of his apprenticeship but the apprentice cannot draw on the the experience and knowledge of being a master carpenter. First we must become first class disciples of Srila Prabhupada…everyone. Then automatically leading others towards the same path of bhakti yoga will take it’s natural course.

    There is no question of becoming a bona fide spiritual master without first becoming a bona fide master disciple.

    “All my disciples will take the legacy. If you want, you can also take it. Sacrifice everything. I, one, may soon pass away. But they are hundreds, and this movement will increase.
    It is not that I give an order, ‘Here is the next leader.’ Anyone who follows the previous leadership is the leader…. All of my disciples are leaders, as much as they “follow purely.”

    YS Hasti Gopala Dasa
