Who is Srila Prabhupada - his giving
Giving is a sign of generosity and nobility in this world. Anyone who has a giving nature is well-loved by the people around him and so, if one donates to charitable causes, not only is he admired by people, but within himself, he feels a sense of satisfaction and goodness. This giving nature is seen mostly in compassionate people and spiritually inclined people. One of them was Srila Prabhupada (a great saint) who was well-known and deeply loved for his impeccable and practical teachings, and mostly, for his compassionate nature through which he touched millions of lives and continues to do so via his instructions.
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 giving is found within this Vaniquotes category - I Give (Prabhupada).
