Jayapataka Swami: We see how Srila Prabhupada endured many suffering on his way to America. He had a heart attack, strokes. In America also, he had a stroke and he was beaten by some person on the east side of New York. So we accept all these as great austerities that he was doing, to spread Krsna consciousness in the west. And therefore we are so much indebted to him. So similarly the spiritual master, may also suffer at different times of physical tribulations. This may be due to the disciples’ reactions or different activities. So we take this also as the guru accepting some difficulties to spread Krsna consciousness. Hare Krsna.
