(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 02 August 2017, Radhadesh, Belgium, Srimad Bhagavatam 8.4.5-6)

This Iskcon movement is a treasure box. It is sort of like a gift packet; a big gift packet full of all kinds of goodies! This movement is like that; it is just packed with mercy. None of us really have the capacity to understand Srila Prabhupada! I think that we cannot understand the mercy Prabhupada has given us. We can see some of it.

When I read the Lilamrta and I read the Prabhupada stories that the devotees tell, sometimes I think, “Yes that person describes how they perceived the transcendental nature of Prabhupada.” Then I was thinking,”All that they saw was the tip of the iceberg of Prabhupada’s mercy!” Most of an iceberg is under water. There is so much more mercy than we see. So even all the glorification of Prabhupada is only touching the tip of the iceberg. Prabhupada is so much greater; his mercy is so much greater than we can see.

Sometimes, we are thinking that we have the potential to understand. We are in a movement, and even if we have been here for like forty or fifty years it does not matter, still we cannot understand how much mercy there is. Surely we are being touched.
