Many of you never met Srila Prabhupada and those of us who where his students didn't have much exchange with him except for public classes or morning walks. Prabhupada never told me directly that he loved me but I know he did. Srila Prabhupada had 5000 diciples/children so it difficult to express yourself with each one as closely as he would of like to. This morning I was reading Srila Prabhupada's early letters to his disciples and I came accross one I wanted to share with you.

68/01 "So, in any circumstances you must not forget Krishna. I love you in my heart and therefore I gave you the name Krsna devi dasi. Don't forget Krsna for a single moment; chant Hare Krsna loudly or slowly as it may be convenient, but don't forget to chant the Holy Name. I am awaiting your arrival with great interest. Hope you are well."

So, Srila Prabhupada Loved all of us and he wanted us to Love Krishna. We all suffer from lack of love but that is not Gods fault or his pure devotees. We turn from God and His helpers. It's never to late to open up to Krishna's Love

I hope this meet you in good health and a cheerful mood.
