Jayapatākā Swami: Why not? Śrīla Prabhupāda underwent so many difficulties to save us. I think I am not able to do enough to repay him! He wants to save everybody suffering in this material hell. So, that is the way I think.
In 1989, in Madrid, one person cut my throat. The doctor who operated on me said that it just missed your carotid artery by 1mm, we could not have saved you in the hospital, only God saved you. Then I had a stroke in October 2008, the doctor said ‘he has zero chance of survival. If by some miracle he survives, he will be in a vegetative state he won’t be able to move or talk.’ I can give so many other examples. Kṛṣṇa has allowed to stay so that is all I can say. 19-June-2022 Bengaluru, India
