Transcending Sickness to Taste the Bliss
uploaded from Copenhagen, Denmark
After being healthy on the road for two months
sickness has finally caught up with me.
Sickness, although not very welcome, is a
wonderful opportunity to focus one's
consciousness on the transcendental plane beyond
the miseries of birth, death, old age, and
disease. It is also a great opportunity to burn
off more of the reactions of one's past sinful
deeds so that one becomes more qualified for the
wonderful process of Krishna consciousness.
Sickness and health are like the changes of the
seasons. Krishna advises us that we have to
tolerate these changes and always remain
absorbed in thoughts of Him. As soon as we do
that we can immediately experience he bliss of
transcendental consciousness far, far beyond all
the suffering conditions of this material world.

Can one still consider Srila Prabhupada as their diksha
guru even though physically he is not present.
Your humble servant,
Answer: Become the
Disciple of His Disciple
take Srila Prabhupada as their siksha (instructing) guru
by always reading his books and strictly abiding by his
Diksha or initiation is when the guru personally agrees
to accept you as his initiated disciple. Just prior to
his 14 November 1977 departure from this world, on 18
October 1977 Srila Prabhupada stated that he would no
longer be accepting any disciples. Therefore it is not
possible for you to now become his initiated disciple.
In May of 1977 he instructed that after his physical
departure from this world that the new ISKCON devotees
should become the disciples of his disciples. Therefore
if you truly accept Srila Prabhupada as your guru, which
I strongly recommend that you do, you should select one
of Srila Prabhupada’s disciples who are strictly
following his instructions and become the initiated
disciple of that Prabhupada disciple. This is how you
can be a disciple of Srila Prabhupada, by becoming the
disciple of his disciple.
