L.A. Prabhupada Festival 2012


On May 26, 2012, Acharyadeva gave a riveting lecture a the L.A. Prabhupada Festival. Acharyadeva has received an outpouring of appreciation for this lecture, several of which are included below:

I just returned from the Srila Prabhupada Festival in Los Angeles. His Holiness Hridayananda Goswami spoke in the temple and presented the most concise and intelligent explanation of Srila Prabhupada’s mercy and relationships with His grand disciples and great grand disciples that I have ever heard. He explained (I’m paraphrasing) that Srila Prabhupada’s mercy equally rains down upon everyone and…is never diluted by one’s guru/disciple status (whether one is a direct disciple, grand disciple, great grand disciple, etc). After his talk, in front of the temple, Maharaja further clarified the position of a guru serving Srila Prabhupada by taking disciples and he spoke about the qualification of a guru. I was awestruck. I am always grateful to receive Srila Acharyadeva’s association and am forever awestruck by his intelligence, purity and grasp of Vaisnava siddhanta. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and His great, elevated and empowered generals like Srila Acharyadeva!
