Who is Srila Prabhupada - his Godbrothers
When a person takes initiation from a spiritual master, he is considered as commencing a brand new life because he embarks on his spiritual journey towards God. The spiritual master becomes the father who guides his disciple throughout, with the ultimate goal that the disciple goes back to Godhead post death. Disciples of a spiritual master are 'godbrothers and godsisters' to each other, and if they co-operate well, they will be able to motivate and guide each other in their spiritual lives. Srila Prabhupada (founder of ISKCON) stresses the importance of healthy relations between godbrothers by stating that 'one should avoid any quarrel with his godbrothers, and always be very nice and kind to them'.
Srila Prabhupada, a glorious modern sage, shares his love with all he meets, via his profound teachings, which bring to life Lord Chaitanya's message: how to develop pure love for Krishna, or God. Srila Prabhupada's outstanding personality - his transcendental desires, qualities, character and personal history - is abundantly expressed in his lectures, conversations, letters and, to some degree, in his books. An endearing presentation on his Godbrothers is found within this Vaniquotes category - My Godbrothers (Prabhupada).
