Caru Prabhu on Srila Prabhupada's preaching style and his books

    Posted on July 24, 2015

Caru das: In spite of all the stories of Prabhupada, I, who had been an English major in college and read a lot of fiction, had always had an idea of there being a dichotomy between the author and his works. So I just always had this keen-ness to meet Prabhupada, the author of this book, the Bhagavad-gita, and other ones that were coming out. When Prabhupada came to Australia, what struck me was that whether Prabhupada was speaking before an audience of six, seven hundred people or whether he was just in a room alone with me, he was basically speaking the Bhagavatam and the Gita. He was the Gita and the Bhagavatam. You might think that someone would have a public persona but then when they get back home, there might be other topics of conversation. But he would preach just as strongly to me as the only other person in the room as he would in the huge rented hall with a large crowd. That inspired me to launch a very, very deep study of Srila Prabhupada's books. And I think because I did that and continue to do it to this day, I've never faltered in my faith in Krishna consciousness.
