Who is Srila A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada? Yes, he is the jagad-guru of modern-day Gaudiya Vaisnavism, the world guru, whom some know as their spiritual master, while others are also his disciples but know it not. He has built a bridge from East to West and crossed it back and forth, planting seeds of bhakti in the West while tilling its soil, and nourishing the seeds sown in the East by others as well as planting there anew. He is the great emissary of Krsna bhakti doing gauravani-pracarine. Indeed, he is the very extension of Gaura lila, a tidal wave from the depths of the ocean of love of God risen up and reaching out to drown even the distant shores with the blessing of Nitaicand. Yet all of this and more with regard to his extraordinary preaching campaign is but the tip of the iceberg of who he is, the surface of the oceanic depth of his love of God. Who then can fathom that depth, the inner wealth of this saffron-clad tridandi-bhiksu?
