Srila Prabhupada's Disappearance Day, 11/05/05

Below is the  homage to Srila Prabhupada by His Grace Sankarshan Das Adhikari
at Srila Prabhupada's Disappearance Day festival held on November 5th, 2005,
in Sri Vrindavana Dhama.

(Eighty-nine disciples of Srila Prabhupada were present,
although not all were able to speak during the
celebration due to time constraints.)

HG Sankarshan Das:

There are no words actually sufficient to reciprocate the love Srila Prabhupada has given to me and all of us. This love is absolutely inconceivable, unlimited, fathomless. Fathomless means there is absolutely no limit to get the mercy, wisdom of His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada. I simply remembered this morning how much I was suffering. I was crying that my life is so empty, so meaningless, so horribly nightmarish. But then the grace of His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada and so many wonderful of his followers, just like Makhanlal Prabhu is here, he preached to me first in Berkley. Then His Holiness Visnujana Maharaj came to Austin in 1971. So by the kindness of Srila Prabhupada and the kindness expanded by Srila Prabhupada through his followers, I have gotten the opportunity to actually become happy and get out of my suffering condition. So how much I am indebted to Srila Prabhupada and to all of you, there is no limit. Everything about Srila Prabhupada is absolutely wonderful.

A devotee asked Srila Prabhupada, "Srila Prabhupada what happens when you give someone a simply wonderful on the street?"

Srila Prabhupada said, "He will take that simply wonderful and he will come to your temple and he will become simply wonderful. Krsna is simply wonderful, this process of Krsna consciousness is simply wonderful and you are all simply wonderful."

Then one devotee said, "Prabhupada is simply wonderful!"

Prabhupada said, "That's alright, have kirtan."

I thank you all for being the simply wonderful followers of Srila Prabhupada, giving this simply terrible wretch Sankarshan Das, the opportunity to become Krsna conscious.
