Guru Maharaj: Answer to first question: You know, we prayed to Krsna that if it is Your desire make Bhakti Caru Swami recover. Certainly Krsna heard all our prayers, but He has some other plan. Srila Prabhupada said, I have my plan, you have your plan and Krsna has His plan. So who’s plan will take preference? So, Krsna’s place takes precedence. And if Srila Prabhupada wants His Holiness Bhakti Caru Swami, Krsna wants him to go, what can we do? So, there is a saying in Bengali, rakhe Krsna mare ke, mare Krsna rakheke. Like that we prayed for Srila Prabhupada many times and he recovered. But he told us that now I have to go! And so, he asked me if I had any question. The first question, was can you stay some more time?! Ha! And then he asked Krsna and he said, alright. When I saw him (maharaj) speaking in Ujjain, on the video, before he left to the West, I felt that Krsna is calling him, otherwise why is he going?
Second question: How to comprehend Krsna’s decision? Since He knows past, present, and future, we don’t know. How can we know why Krsna does something? We don’t know like Srila Bhaktisiddanta Saraswati Thakura he was looking at the moon. Everyone was looking at him, what is he doing looking at the moon? Then he looked at the devotees and said, they have become, bahir mukha, materialistic in the moon planet! We have to go there and preach!! So, who knows where Srila Bhaktisiddanta Saraswati Thakura went, where Srila Prabhupada went, and where Srila Prabhupada is calling Bhakti Caru Swami?
