(Kadamba Kanana Swami, February 2011, Stockholm, Sweden, Lecture) It is certainly good to look for inspiration in the association of devotees but we must also learn to find it when we are … more
So we see that in Kadamba Kanana Maharaja. He has given this lifetime to Krsna. We all try to somehow or the other get things done, or things may not get going. So we have to take some responsibility to push Prabhupada’s movement and Kadamba Kanana Maharaja is an excellent example of that.
Really working hard, and even risking his health to go the extra mile for Prabhupada, for presenting Krsna consciousness, for giving Krsna consciousness, for giving people the experience of Krsna consciousness. So I really appreciate that so much in him!
Every devotee, particularly every senior devotee, they have certain qualities which are outstanding, and of course Maharaja has many, but for me, I really appreciate this, as I’ve said, especially in our festivals, so many times he comes and he’s not well and I tell him, you know you should be careful. He says, “Yes, yes, I will.”
But as soon as you turn around, there he is in the kirtana, full steam ahead!
