Pūrṇadeva Candra (Atlanta - United States of America)

Śrīla Ācāryapada,

As Śrīla Prabhupāda had said: you are an associate of Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya Mahāprabhu, delivering souls having American, Indian, Spanish or any type of body; delivering souls from material entanglement is more important to you than booking at the type of body they may be embodied in.

You are so merciful that you load more mercy on the soul than he deserves, making no discrimination among your disciples, whatever insignificant work he does. Inspite of your busy schedules and long long travels around the world, you have time for everybody, even though it means insufficient rest for you.

New devotees like me, struggling to come out of ‘Māyā’ can only gather hope from observing your personal example, as you believe in “Example is the best precept”.

As Śrīla Prabhupāda used to say: he does everything to please His Guru Mahārāja. I was ecstatic when you accepted me as your disciple on behalf of Śrīla Prabhupāda, to please him. Otherwise, I had no hope at all, as Śrīla Prabhupāda is no more on this planet and I do not know how to travel to the planet where He may have appeared. By your mercy, I am able to serve Śrīla Prabhupāda every day. Like Śrīla Ācāryadeva, you are determined to spread the ISKCON to all sections of society, from beggar to Governor, from illiterate to intellectuals, by giving your vision of how to solve the financial and managerial problems any temple might face so that ISKCON can reach out to all without any exception.

You are the only hope for the East or the West and for the North or the South.

All glories to you and Śrīla Prabhupāda.

Your disciple,
Pūrṇadeva Candra
