I keep seeing him with my ears…

[Madhudvisah das wrote:] Why do we hesitate to tell a new comer who is searching for a guru that Srila Prabhupada, the best guru the world has ever seen, is still here, and one can surrender unto him and go back to Godhead very easily? When we have such a great good fortune, why do we not take full advantage of it?

Dear Madhudvisah Prabhu,
Please accept my most humble obeisances, all glories to Srila Prabhupada. Srila Prabhupada is still here now. I agree--I think everyone agrees--but I heard him ask, "Where is Hansadutta? Where is Bhagavan Das? Where is Pradyumna Prabhu? Where is Guru Kripa Swami? Where is Praghosa? Tripurari? And what happened to the sankirtan parties and their book distribution scores? And why has the BTG circulation dropped from one million a month to a few thousand every three months? Who has changed my books without consulting me? Why are all the temples empty? And why are they playing Rock and roll music at the Ratha yatra festival? Why not have Kirtan with mridungas and kartals?" I heard Srila Prabhupada say a lot more. Did anyone else hear him? Did you? Or Jayadvaita? Or the GBC men and the 16,108 ISKCON gurus and their followers hear him? I know Srila Prabhupada is still here. I don't see him as much as I hear him saying these things. Prabhupada always said you do not see the holy man with the eyes; you see him with the ears, and now I know what he meant. I keep seeing him with my ears, saying these things and more. It seems that Srila Prabhupada is here, but no one seems to hear what he is saying. I hear him, but how come no one else hears what I hear??

Your humble servant,
Hansadutta das
