Everyone should know Srila Prabhupada. If you don't know Srila Prabhupada, you're losing. He's the perfect example. Otherwise, how do we know what platform to aspire for unless we have the perfect example? If we don't know, we'll start thinking, "Oh I could be like this, I could be like that." No. He's our Founder-Acarya for all time— not just for twelve years while he was present on the planet. He's the Founder-Acarya of ISKCON for as long as ISKCON is present.
