(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 12 November 2016, Vrindavan, India, Srimad Bhagavatam 6.18.1-8)
Just before I came to present this class, I met Gurukripa Prabhu who said, “I am going to listen in on the radio,” to sort of put some pressure on me which I appreciated. When Srila Prabhupada wanted to build this Krsna-Balarama temple then Gurukripa Prabhu said, “Do not worry Prabhupada, I will get you the money.” In those days, it was not so easy to raise funds because there was no fame to the Hare Krsna Movement. There weren’t lots of people in India who knew about this Movement, who accepted this Movement and who were ready to give. It was hard work to collect the money for this temple and now we sit here so nicely by the mercy of Gurukripa who did that service because he wanted guru-kṛpā (mercy and blessings of the guru), he always was very eager for guru-kṛpā. So this is why this temple is here. Somehow or other, we need to become inspired to serve Srila Prabhupada with great enthusiasm.
