Question:

My name is Jayapatni Gopi dasi and I have been in the movement and a disciple of Jayapataka Swami most of the time since 1980. I serve here at New Talavana Farm in Mississippi.

In the late 80's, I was raising four young children all born within a span of eight years. I was dealing with my elderly dad who was alone, and had had a bad habit of drinking for many years. He had caused drunk driving accidents, but due to Krsna's mercy had not hurt anyone except
himself.

I made a decision when I moved to New Talavana not to give him my address, because he lived 2 1/2 hours away and I feared he would spend most of his time on the highway driving back and forth to and from his house to mine.

I now am plagued with guilt and remorse for the totally isolated life he lead for the last three years of his life. He was totally alone in a cabin in the woods in the backwoods of Mississippi. He often told me how distressed he was. We went to see him once a month and brought prasadam. If I had it to do over I would trust in Krsna to help me and attempt to have him here doing some menial service for the farm. He liked mowing.

I feared I couldn't care for my four infant children and also be cognizant enough to deal with him and my husband commuted to work and was rarely here to help us. I have had two shrada ceremonies and intend to have another one performed in October, but my thoughts are almost constantly haunted by his distress during those years. He died in 1991, and this doesn't seem to be getting any better for me. We were very close.

Question: I have a question regarding His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Did Srila Prabhupada ever call himself a saint or acarya in any situation? I am asking this because I don't think that I am able to tell who is saint and who is not.

Response to Incidence of Falldown of a Sannyasi

October 31, 2013 |

Question: Please clear our doubts regarding the fall down of His Holiness Mahanidhi Maharaja. (1) When people in general see these events they may question why we criticize others, when some of our own leaders fall down, how do we answer them? (2) We want to go out and boldly to speak what Srila Prabhupada taught us, but fear that if someone raises this issue we will not know how to answer him back? By events like these our confidence gets weak.
