(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 22 September 2012, Durban, South Africa)
If we start reading Srila Prabhupada’s books and purports, we experience such a relief. Here you can drink it in! Every word is a blessing, every word is sarva mangalam, every word is auspicious! Even when you don’t like it then know that that part in you is inauspicious. If there’s something in Prabhupada’s Bhagavatam that we don’t like then know that there is something inauspicious in us because there are no faults. It is the amala Purana– the spotless Purana. And Srila Prabhupada’s purports (he said himself) is even more important than the text because that gives us real entrance into the text. So like this we are very, very happy to have these transcendental books as our shelter in life. They are immediately giving us relief from material existence.
