I share this beautiful verse from Srimad Bhagavatam, 1, 3, 43, which says that this Bhāgavata Purāṇa is as bright as the Sun, and has arisen just after the departure of Lord Kṛṣṇa to His own abode, accompanied by religion, the knowledge, etc. People who have lost their vision due to the dense darkness of the age of Kali, will receive the light of this Purāṇa. The essence of all the instructions in Srila Prabhupada's books is that you come out of darkness and come to the Light. In Chaitanya-Charitamrita, it is said that God or Krishna is like Light and maya or ignorance is like darkness, where there is God or Krishna there can be no darkness. Also in the Bhagavad Gita, God or Krishna says that this energy of Mine, maya or darkness, is very difficult to overcome, but those who surrender to Me can easily overcome it. In other words, maya is controlled by Krishna, and when a soul obeys the laws of God or Krishna, Krishna tells His energy not to influence His devotee, so the devotee enjoys full and total freedom.

In the process of surrendering to God or Krishna one must: (1) accept everything that is favorable for the performance of devotional service, (2) reject everything that is unfavorable to it, (3) firmly believe in the Lord's protection. , (4) to feel that it depends exclusively on the mercy of the Lord, (5) to have no interest apart from the Lord's interest, and (6) to be always meek and humble.

 

The biggest problem of today is the hypocrisy that exists in people, hypocritical people put a stamp and say that I am Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Hare Krishna, etc. These people have no interest in knowing God and love him. Their only interest is to have many followers and live like kings and fight against each other. That is called Kali-yuga, the current era full of hypocrisy and quarrels. At the end of the preface to the Bhagavad Gita, Srila Prabhupada says that we hope, then, that people will get the greatest benefit of all through the study of Bhagavad-gītā, just as it is in the way we have presented it here. If only one man becomes a pure devotee of the Lord, we will consider that our effort has been a success.

One of the most devoted and loved devotees by Srila Prabhupada named Jayananda Prabhu left the body a few months before Srila Prabhupada entered His Samadhi-lila.  Srila Prabhupada said that he had gone to Goloka Vrindavana, to the spiritual world. So we concluded that Srila Prabhupada's mission has been a success.
