The spiritual master is always our well-wisher…

I saw one of Srila Prabhupada’s very early disciples, who was not exactly dressed in devotional attire. He was there on Prabhupada’s disappearance day in Vrndavan, on the stage. And he was asked to speak. He was dressed in blue jeans, a black t-shirt and a tiger-skinned vest. And his hair was sort of punkish. Still he was one of the earliest devotees in this movement. So he was asked to speak.
He said, “Well, there may be some who are not so happy that I am here on the stage..”
And that might have been true. He said, “But what can I do. I will never leave. I will never go. And the reason is because of three words… three words that Srila Prabhupada wrote to me in a letter in 1966.”
He was building it up, and everybody was saying what are those three words that Srila Prabhupada wrote in the letter. We were all sort of awake… what are those three words in that letter the Prabhupada wrote to him that were so powerful that somehow or other he stayed. What were those words… the magic formula??
Those words were: YOU EVER WELL-WISHER, AC Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada.
