(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 19 February 2014, Mayapur, India, Srimad Bhagavatam 2.8.5)

The time slot is very short so, one last point,

sarva maha-guna-gana vaisnava-sarire
krsna-bhakte krsnera guna sakali sañcare (Caitanya Caritamrta Madhya 22.75)

prabhupada_4A great collection of good qualities are present within the vaisnavas – a vaisnava gradually develops all the good qualities of Krsna. So in this way, the vaisnavas also like Krsna become all-attractive and that is what we see in Srila Prabhupada, that he became all-attractive. Like when Prabhupada was here, wherever he was, that was the center of the universe! Wherever he was that became the place where ‘it’ was happening. So in this way, we hope that this movement will produce, and it has already produced, many amazing devotees to whom I am offering my obeisances.

Still the thought comes to my mind. If we would take a scale and if we would put all our collective wealth – all the wealth, all the jewels that we have received of realizations in Krsna consciousness of all the devotees – on one end on the scale and we put the weight of Prabhupada’s wealth on the other side, I am sure that his wealth, his spiritual wealth outweighs the collective wealth of all of us.

Therefore, I think we are greatly challenged, greatly challenged to push on this movement since we do not have the adequate wealth to come up with what is needed but by trying, by trying we can by the mercy of guru and Krsna become empowered and attract mercy of Prabhupada and Krsna. Then it can be done!
