Vyasa Puja Offering To Srila Prabhupada
- August 24, 2020
As stated in the beginning of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, this great transcendental literature is the ripened fruit of the tree of Vedic knowledge, and therefore all questions that can be humanly possible regarding the universal affairs, beginning from its creation, are all answered in the Srimad-Bhagavatam.
Srila Prabhupada; SB 2.9.46, Purport
The demigods are called sakama devotees, or devotees with material desires in mind, while the pure devotees are called niskama devotees because they have no desires for their personal interests. The sakama devotees are self-interested because they do not think of others, and therefore they are not able to satisfy the Lord perfectly, whereas the pure devotees take the missionary responsibility of turning nondevotees into devotees, and they are therefore able to satisfy the Lord more than the demigods.
Srila Prabhupada; SB 3.912 Purport
Our program for Krsna consciousness is solid and backed by most authoritative literature-Bhagavad-gita, and Srimad-Bhagavatam; there is no question of our not being popular to the world. Simply we have to present ourselves in true perspective.
From a letter from Srila Prabhupada — 7 Feb 1968

"One may cleanse himself daily by taking a bath in water, but if one takes a bath even once in the sacred Ganges water of Bhagavad-gita, for him the dirt of material life is altogether vanquished." (Gita-mahatmya 3)
(Quoted in Srila Prabhupada's introduction to Bhagavad-gita As It Is)
Countless eons ago, when men and animals could converse together and powerful brahmanas would effect miracles, the uncontrollable demon Ravana was terrorizing the universe. The Ramayana records the adventures of Rama, the Lord of righteousness, as He struggles to overcome the forces of Ravana. This absorbing narration has delighted and enlightened countless generations in India, and its timeless spiritual insights
are compellingly relevant in today’s confused world.
