FOCUS ON THE ACHARYA

Success in spiritual life depends on understanding the absolute position of the bonafide acharya and to follow his instructions submissively without any personal ambition. According to Krishnadas Kaviraj Gosvami, if a disciple disagrees with his spiritual master he immediately becomes useless. It means his spiritual progress is halted until he corrects his mentality and strictly follows again. In a letter written in October 1967 Srila Prabhupada wrote: "Kirtanananda may be eager to address in the Harvard university but recently he has lost his link on account of disobedience. …So it is my definite opinion that his lecture anywhere now will bear no spiritual sequence. He must rectify his mistake before he can play in our Society any important role. By lips he says that he is a surrendered soul but by action he is thinking differently." Only by pleasing the bonafide acharya can Krishna be pleased and without pleasing Krishna nobody can return back to Godhead. In the Srimad Bhagavatam Srila Prahupada declares: 'Nobody should become an acharya until he has established his relationship with the Supersoul'. This is not imaginary. It is personal association with Lord Vishnu and at that stage the disciple becomes self-effulgent and self-manifest and is unlikely to fall down because he has seen the Truth. Therefore it is vital to realize the absolute position of the Acharya. All these statements are self-explanatory for the sincere student of spiritual life.

HE LIVES FOREVER IN HIS BOOKS

The only way we can associate with Srila Prabhupada and continue to learn from him is by following his instructions which includes reading his books. HIS books, not unauthorized, butchered versions of his books, distributed by a fake book trust in whose registration document Srila Prabhupada is mentioned as a "writer for hire". Milk touched by the lips of a snake has a poisonous effect. In an interview Bhagavad Das revealed how he and Tamal Krishna were told by Srila Prahupada why he reads his own books every day and always learns something new from them. He said: "Every morning when I sit down here to write, Krishna personally comes to dictate me what to write. So I simply take dictation from Krishna and I write these books. Therefore, when I read them even I learn something." So here you will find reformatted versions of Srila Prabhupada's original books and I encourage you to read them every day, just as he did. I also include material from devotees which help in presenting truth and facts for better understanding Srila Prabhupada's mission. I started this project originally for my own reading pleasure which gradually developed into the current versions. Now I share the books with whoever wants them. After all, they are not my books and they are already available on different websites, just not in this particular more polished presentation. More language versions will follow if Krishna keeps me functioning in this body.
