What pleases you the most?
Srila Prabhupada is the Founder Acharya of ISKCON so he always has a special position. Besides that Prabhupada wrote so many books and has instructions for us all to follow if we want to become spiritual. Many spiritual masters will come within ISKCON but Srila Prabhupada will occupy the most prominent place.
Following Prabhupada's instructions should be the number one thought in every devotee's mind as far as ISKCON is concerned, in fact, I would even say every individual if possible should follow for his and her benefit.
Anyways, I wanted to copy the words of Prabhupada below on what pleases him the most. Following this instruction can elevate our consciousness. Please read below.
Q. A devotee asks Prabhupada "We know there are many things that please you, Srila Prabhupada. We would like to know what would please you the most?"
A. Prabhupada's reply "Understand Bhagavad-gita and Srimad-Bhagavatam, become perfect and distribute this knowledge to your fellow countrymen".
So we understand the vision of Prabhupada. It was never about him. He is pleased when we ultimately help people become spiritual away from materialism. His vision is for everyone in every country. To such a magnanimous and benevolent soul, one should rightfully submit.
