Thinking of Srila Prabhupada and Srimati Radharani, we naturally think of their compassion. Srila Prabhupada said that Radharani represents Krishna's compassionate nature, and Srila Prabhupada is a manifestation of hers. Now, as we approach Sri Radhastami, I would like to share two complimentary talks that Niranjana Swami and I gave last year after Vyasa-puja, on Vaishnava compassion.

Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Bhaktivinode Thakur had previously inaugurated the Hare Krsna Movement, the emblem of that Yuga Dharma, when he sent his Caitanya—His Life and Precepts to McGill University, Canada, in 1896
