Question: During the course of your service to Srila Prabhupada, when you faced obstacles, especially which appeared insurmountable, how were you able to overcome them? Was it through prayers? Or by seeking shelter of our acaryas? Or the Lord? What would you recommend to us as the best course of action when we face such obstacles? What should be our prayers?

Jayapataka Swami: Yes, yes, yes, yes! You have asked whether I prayed, whether I depended on my guru, whether I depended on the previous acaryas? Yes, I did. And what should you do? Yes, do the same! Ha! Ha! 15-MARCH-2020 SRI MAYAPUR DHAM, INDIA
