Everything Is In My Books
Part 1

Forty-five years have passed since Srila Prabhupada disappearance, and there is no doubt, in any sane person, that the mission he built, from 1965 to 1977, is significantly broken and lost. His mission is still there, because Srila Prabhupada many times implied that “everything is in his books” He never said that his mission is a name of an institution.

Letter to: Satsvarupa — Calcutta 13 September, 1970:

“Now I have invested the GBC for maintaining the standard of our Krsna Consciousness Society, so keep the GBC very vigilant. I have already given you full directions in my books. Please counteract this contamination which has been spread throughout our Society.

Letter to: Amarendra das — Calcutta January 31, 1972:

“After all, the result is given by Krsna.  So the main point is simply to execute everything with complete sincerity and enthusiasm, without deviating from the principles that I have given you in my books.

Letter to: Kirtika — Calcutta 16 February, 1972:

“I think from now on the GBC men may be consulted in all such matters of temple management and affairs.

I have given them everything, so they shall be able to answer all questions, and if they cannot answer from their experience, then I have given answer in my books—and still if they cannot answer, they may ask me.”

Room Conversation — July 5, 1972, London:


Srila Prabhupada, when you are not present with us, how is it possible to receive instructions, for example, on questions that may arise?”


“Well, the questions… Answers are there in my books.”

 Garden Conversation — June 25, 1975, Los Angeles:

“So, whatever I know I have explained in my books. Beyond that I have no knowledge. … So what can I do? I say that whatever I have got experience, I am explaining in my books. I have explained. So, it is not possible for me to answer every individual person. It is not possible.”
