Prabhupada’s Versatility

Prabhupada was sometimes as strong as a thunderbolt, other times soft as a rose.  When, sometimes, persons would ask Prabhupada esoteric details about Vrindavana or the rasadance, he would cut them short.  Rather than answer their questions directly, he would address their mentalities.  Yet, at the same time, he would fully answer the questions of a sincere inquirer.

We should be proud to have such a guru, who adopted the chopping technique of his own spiritual master in trying to save the world from maya, but was fully capable of understanding Vrindavana bhajana-rasa.  After all, he lived in Vrindavana for years, wrote his books there, and lived alone at the Radha Damodara Temple.  He was very, very sensitive to the atmosphere in Vrindavana.  Even his silence on the subject of rasa-lila made us feel his potency, his power.  Krishna’s pastimes took place in Vraja, although, at present, They areaprakata, not manifest now, Prabhupada knew about Krishna’s pastimes.
