I was present during Srila Prabhupda’s manifest presence before he departed from this world in 1977. Because I had already been a member of the Krishna consciousness movement for five years prior to his departure, I personally witnessed his very strong, compelling desire to see that his books were distributed throughout the world. I felt pushed by simply hearing that desire. Although I felt pushed during those years, I have no feelings of regret whatsoever. In fact, it has helped me to more fully understand the personality of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada,
his motivations, his purpose, and his purity. It also enabled me to experience a very sweet taste that comes from making personal sacrifices for the pleasure of a pure devotee of the Lord. It is a taste that is incomparable to any other pleasure that one may aspire for or experience in this world.
