ISKCON 50 Meditations: March 4, 2016

Some of the most direct instructions on feelings of separation from Srila Prabhupada are in the Fourth Canto of Bhagavatam, where Prabhupada explains that the disciple is supposed to cry after the disappearance of the spiritual master.  As far as separation from Krishna, or separation from the devotee is concerned, it’s the most exalted part of our philosophy.  The worst kind of unhappiness is separation from the devotee.  If we feel there is no devotee around us, then Ramananda Raya said, “This is the most unhappy condition.”

Prabhupada, in 1966, wrote about this unhappiness in his diary: “According to Mayapur Panjika, today is Adhivas day of Gaura Purnima.  Devotees at Vrindavana and Navadvipa are enjoying the celebration.  I am here alone without a devotee companion, but I have come here to serve the Lord and not for personal happiness.  I am prepared to live in hell, even if I am able to serve the Lord.  Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu wanted that His mission should be propagated all over the world, and that is my objective.  I do not mind the inconvenience personally felt.  View Krishna store
