Srila Prabhupada's Compassion

Someone challenged.'' I say we have evolved from monkeys.'' to which Srila Prabhupada countered.'' Where is the the question of evolution?I say you are still monkeys.'' (Monkey mentality)

A man said .'' Sooner are later i will surrender to Krsna.'' Srila Prabhupada advised.'' Better sooner.Do you know you have a later?''

Srila Prabhupada was perfect in his compassion.When one of his sannyasi disciple saw a poor women picking though the trash.he turned to Srila Prabhupada and said.'' Sometimes i feel so sorry for these people.'' Srila Prabhupada looked at him with a gazeladen with mercy and questioned ."Why just sometimes?''

A man shouted at Srila Prabhupada during a darsana and had to be hustled out of the room.The devotees were quite unnerved and began to speculate as to the offender's future.Would he be sent to some hellish planet?Would he be born in a decrepit condition here on earth?How would he become free of his offence-Vaishnava aparadha?After the discussion went back and forth among the devotee's for some time.Srila Prabhupada looked up and offered,''We could forgive him,'' an option no one else had thought of.
