Gratitude from Anandalila’s family

Hare Krishna. My respects to “Parvati” who commented on my recent posting and invited me to reply. First let me say that my brother, Jamalarjuna, did not reveal his vision of Srila Prabhupada taking Lila back to Godhead for personal glory. Jamal shared what he saw with us with a deep sense of gratitude and love for Srila Prabhupada. We confirm the veracity of transcendental events by triangulating the evidence of guru, sadhu and sastra. It is good to have faith in guru and sastra but faith in sadhu should also be there. In other words, when devotees sincerely reveal their contact with guru, even in dreams, they should be taken seriously if what they see accords with sastra. The appearance of Srila Prabhupada, even in a dream, is non-different from him. Can we say he is present in his photograph and murti but not in a dream? Srila Prabhupada himself took sannyasa after a dream in which his spiritual master told him to do so. What Jamal saw, however, was not a dream. He was very much wide awake and saw Srila Prabhupada standing there exactly as if he were physically present. There are only two possibilities. One is that Jamal was tired due to maintaining his bedside vigil while Lila was in a coma and what he saw was similar to a dream in that he was in a state of altered consciousness. But it is equally possible that Srila Prabhupada personally appeared to take Lila back home. In either case, it must be understood that Srila Prabhupada would have been no less present. He has the same potency however he appears and to think otherwise is to minimise his glory. As stated in the Padma Purana: gurusu nara-matir…yasya va naraki sah: “One who considers the spiritual master to be an ordinary human being is possessed of hellish intelligence.” Srila Prabhupada is certainly no ordinary human being. He is the divine saviour of us all and without him we are lost.
