Srila Prabhupada:

"So far I am concerned, I cannot say what I was in my previous life, but one great astrologer calculated that I was previously a physician and my life was sinless.

Besides that, to corroborate the statement from the Bhagavad-gita-- śucīnāṁ śrīmatāṁ gehe, yoga-bhraṣṭo 'bhijāyate -- which means an unfinished yogi takes birth in rich family or born of a suci or pious father.

By the grace of Krsna I got these two opportunities in the present life to be born of a pious father and brought up in one of the richest, aristocratic families of Calcutta (Kasinatha Mullick).

The Radha-Krsna Diety in this family called me to meet Him, and therefore last time when I was in Calcutta, I stayed in that temple along with my American disciples.

Although I had immense opportunities to indulge in the four principles of sinful life because I was connected with a very aristocratic family, Krsna always saved me, and throughout my whole life I do not know what is illicit sex, intoxication, meat-eating, or gambling.

So far my present life is concerned, I do not remember any part of my life when I was forgetful of Krsna."

(Excerpt from letter to Tamal Krishna, June 1970)
