The Guru Business

As I started to read through Srila Prabhupada’s personal letters to his disciples, I was primarily looking for quotes on
marriage. At the time I was desperate to try and save my own marriage. Although that was my main motive, I also knew it was my moral duty to try and save my wife and children from possible danger. In this way, I began my research with
the blessings of the Lord of morality, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Since I was approaching His topmost representative, Srila Prabhupada, for guidance and inspiration, I knew the outcome would be auspicious, whatever it was. I had no
idea where my research would lead me. I only knew that something was going to burst, and I didn’t want it to be me. I was not especially concerned with the broader “guru-issue” facing ISKCON’s “leaders” today. Mainly, I wanted to save my own family, hoping that was part of the Lord’s plan.”
