Jayapataka Swami: I was inspired by Srila Prabhupada. So he took so much personal trouble to give us all Krsna consciousness. So naturally, he cared so much about everybody. So naturally, I also, to a small percent, I also appreciate all the devotees. I hope that the devotees will get inspired from me or at least from Srila Prabhupada, because he cared so much about the people of the world. He left Vrndavana, where he could get easy liberation, to distribute the mercy of Lord Caitanya in distant places, accepting so many difficulties. So how much we should be indebted to Srila Prabhupada! And when we understand how all the vaisnavas are so dear to Krsna, how Krsna is in the heart of all the devotees, Lord Visnu is in everyone’s heart. So we should try to awaken their consciousness of Visnu or Krsna. We see how this devotee is trying so hard to help people be Krsna conscious. So the vaisnavas they are oceans of mercy! They are like desire trees. Vanca kalpataru bhyas ca, krpa sindubhya eva ca, patitanam pavenebhyo vaisnavebhyo namo namaha. Hare Krsna!
