Connecting Devotees Worldwide - In Service Of Srila Prabhupada

Get Cared for...Feel Cared for!

"One time Prabhupada was sitting with his hand on his head and he was saying, "You don't know what it is like to run a world-wide spiritual movement. You don't know." The inference, with the way that he was holding his head, was that it was a big headache.

Prabhupada was so concerned that we all stay together, that we all work together, that we all cooperate to spread the Krsna conscious movement. We have many, many devotees now and it's important that the devotees get cared for, and feel cared for.

So part of the function to care for the devotees, is through the diksa guru. He is the manifestation of the Madana Mohana vigraha, the sambanda vigraha. There's also the help of the many different instructing spiritual masters, or siksa gurus, who is a representative of Govindaji, the abidheya vigraha. The goal of life is Radha-Gopinatha."
