Everything Is In My Books Part 4 

Letter to: Dina Dayala — Mayapur 25 February, 1976:

“This movement is being spread everywhere. Maintain your activities and increase gradually. I have instructed everything in my books.”

Evening Darsana — May 13, 1977, Hrishikesh:

“So, I cannot speak. I am feeling very weak. I was to go to other places like Chandigarh program, but I cancelled the program because the condition of my health is very deteriorating. So I preferred to come to Vrndavana. If death takes place, let it take here. So there is nothing to be said new. Whatever I have to speak, I have spoken in my books. Now you try to understand it and continue your endeavor. Whether I am present or not present, it doesn’t matter. As Krishna is living eternally, similarly, living being also lives eternally. But kirtir yasya sa jivati: “One who has done service to the Lord lives forever.” So you have been taught to serve Krishna, and with Krishna we’ll live eternally. Our life is eternal. Na hanyate hanyamane sarire [Bg. 2.20]. A temporary disappearance of this body, it doesn’t matter. Body is meant for disappearance. Tatha dehantara-praptih [Bg. 2.13]. So live forever by serving Krishna. Thank you very much.”

Arrival Speech — May 17, 1977, Vrndavana:

“So I preferred to come to Vrndavana. If death takes place, let it take here. So there is nothing to be said new. Whatever I have to speak, I have spoken in my books. Now you try to understand it and continue your endeavor. Whether I am present or not present, it doesn’t matter. As Krishna is living eternally, similarly, living being also lives eternally. But  “One who has done service to the Lord lives forever.” So you have been taught to serve Krishna, and with Krishna we’ll live eternally. Our life is eternal.  … A temporary disappearance of this body, it doesn’t matter. Body is meant for disappearance. …. So live forever by serving Krishna. Thank you very much”

Letter to: Prana – Vrndavana, July 20, 1977:

My books are sufficient. Let all of my disciples read my books. This idea is over-burden. It will mean to many readings. Let them read whatever is there and digest it. Everything I have wanted to say I have said in my books.

Back To Godhead #13-01/02 1978, Srila Prabhupada Disappearance Edition Dedication:

“So, while it is natural for us to be sorrowful that Srila Prabhupada has passed away, we can know for sure that he will never pass away, for he is ‘living still in sound.’ As he himself said,

 ‘I will never die. I will live forever in my books.

In the days and years to come, may everyone come to remember Srila Prabhupada in the same way that he remembered his spiritual master: ‘He lives forever by his divine instructions, and the follower lives with him.’
