When Jananivas Prabhu came we welcomed him with our whole heart. We were so happy to have his association. We went to the altar. After that we went to the mat we asked him some questions about Srila Prabhupada. After that Jananivas Prabhu gave all of us some tasty Jagannath prasadam and we escorted him to the door. I thought that was very nice. We had decorated the classroom and he said that it was a very nice reception.

How can we go to Srila Prabhupada?
Jananivas Prabhu told us, that we can go to Srila Prabhupada when we follow his instructions. We have vani and vapu. Vani is more important than vapu. When he left this material world, his books remained. We follow vani by chanting japa, singing the holy names of Krishna and doing bhakti. When we follow Srila Prabhupada’s teachings we are always with him.

Why did Srila Prabupada go to America?
Srila Prabhupada went to America because his Guru told him to preach about Krishna in the English language, write and distribute Srimad Bhagavatam and Bhagavad Gita. He went there to help the whole planet. Srila Prabhupada gave the japa and Bhagavad Gita and everyone became a devotee.

Is Srila Prabhupada ever in maya?
Jananivas Prabhu told that one day Srila Prabhupada was flying in the airplane and watching a movie with Charli Chaplin and he was laughing very happy. One devotee was sitting next to him. He was surprised and he said this is a karmi movie. Prabhupada said every movie is Krishna because Krishna gives ability to everyone. Krishna has given him the ability to make people laugh. In this way Srila Prabhupada saw Krishna everywhere.
