SUNRISES IN THE WEST :
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupad or Srila Prabhupad, as he is popularly known amongst his disciples. The date is the 13th of August 1965, Prabhupad, a Vaishnav sanyasi in the disciplic succession of "Brahma-Madhva-Gaudiya Sampraday ", who became the founder acharya of ISKCON a worldwide organisation, with more than 800+ Radha Krishna temples all over the planet at present, started his motivational stories, at the ripe old age of 70 yrs, 5 feet 7 inches. When most of the people think about staying at a peaceful place and taking a back seat with not many active engagements, Prabhupad a Bengali who never left the country, at the age of 70yrs, went to America in cargo ship "Jaladutta" (Ships used for transporting goods to different countries) to follow his Guru's instruction, Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Swami Maharaj.

Srila Bhakti Siddhantha Saraswathi Thakur Prabhupad
India is a seat of spiritual knowledge. Srila Bhakti Siddhanta wanted his disciples to go to the west and preach this highest knowledge that mankind had ever, has ever and will ever know in the time immemorial. The knowledge was from "Bhagavad Gita and Srimad Bhagavatam" the cream of Vedic knowledge, which the western world was always deprived of.

Even the Indians, were not aware and hence couldn't give the right position to this highest knowledge, what to talk about the western world, which at that time was in total chaos due to war, unsatisfied youth becoming hippies and no peace in general.
THE CROOKED ROAD TO MOTIVATIONAL STORIES :
Big challenges for Prabhupad, on his way to New York, after reaching over there. :
Drastic new environment.
Alone with no support, either financially or emotionally.
A pure Vaishnava sannyasi, have high standards of living, which means a lot of rules to follow, how will he practice the Vaishnav culture living in a totally opposite one.
The ripe old age of 70yrs.
Travel for 35 days on a cargo ship, used for transporting containers.
Got "2 Deadly Heart Attacks" on the ship.
Just Rs.140 in the pocket. No source of income.
Danger of death
A total stranger in a strange city.
HOT THORNY PATH
As Prabhupad started his journey of motivational stories which would inspire crores of people, He reached the Boston harbor, New York on 17th Sept 1965. As soon as he got down of the cargo ship, he thought to himself "Where should I go? Left or Right?". Nothing was planned for him. No one is there for him, so who will plan? The only thing he had was an invitation given to him by Gopal Agrawal, on the recommendation of his father who knew Prabhupad in India.
Prabhupad's struggle days in New York
He stayed with them for a few days but realised, his mission to propagate knowledge of Bhagavad Gita or Krishna Consciousness was not moving. Hence he moved in with a David Allen, a young American boy who showed good interest in learning this knowledge. He was so interested that he wanted to go to Vrindavan, India with Prabhupad to experience the Krishna consciousness at its very best.
THE LETHAL ATTACK
But David, like other youths in America, used to take drugs and get intoxicated. He respected Prabhupad a lot as he was an Indian Swami. But one day, this friend started showing his weird behavior.
David attacked Prabhupad. This was the 3rd time when he saw death face to face after 2 heart attacks in the cargo ship. Somehow he managed to escape the place and went to a well-wisher place to stay, unsure about where will he stay after his well-wisher stops him wishing.
A Lifetime in Preparation
It seemed like failure was not stopping for him. Before coming to New York, He had already failed so many times. He was a rich businessman but at once he lost his riches. He tried to preach this knowledge from Bhagavad Gita, in India by establishing an organisation "League of Devotees", but even that couldn't take off. His family left him alone. He was already an old man. In India, he had already struggled a lot for printing his books "Srimad Bhagavatam". He had no one to support him. He translated the Bhagavatham into English, gave the purport to each verse, walked down every day for 10kms to get the papers, deliver it to the printer, proofread the sample books. He was doing everything alone. And now when he came to New York, He had already spent a year but there was no motion.
Stay High Forever
The year is 1966, Tomskin square park, New york. One year had already passed of Prabhupada, stepping on to the American land. But there was nothing that he could show up.
He had already crossed 70, unknown of when death will come to him. Not that he was fearful of leaving the body. A Vaishnava is fearless. But he was always anxious to fulfil his Guru's order.
So one day, he took the kartals (cymbals) and came to the park and started singing the
"HARE KRISHNA HARE KRISHNA KRISHNA KRISHNA HARE HARE
HARE RAMA HARE RAMA RAMA RAMA HARE HARE"
Prabhupad does kritan at Tom Skin square park, New York 1966.
This was Kirtan. The essence of Vedic knowledge. The most simple way to understand Krishna Consciousness. He was here to propagate this MAHA MANTRA.
Hippies joined him, first they started humming, they started singing, then really started singing, then they started dancing. And this went on.
In Prabhupad Lilamrita, a book written by Satsvrupa Das Goswami on the life of Prabhupad, we get to know, how he felt when he saw people dancing on Hare Krishna Mantra.
"Prabhupāda explained that there are three platforms-sensual, mental, and intellectual-and above them is the spiritual platform. The chanting of Hare Kṛṣṇa is on the spiritual platform, and it is the best process for reviving our eternal, blissful consciousness. He invited everyone to attend the meetings at 26 Second Avenue and concluded his brief speech by saying, "Thank you very much. Please chant with us." Then he sat down, took the drum, and began the kīrtana again."
Chapter 20: Stay High Forever.
Below is the video of prabhupad doing the Hare Krishna Kirtan
for the 1st time in New York, 1966.
Hippies became Happies.
American's get the goal of the life
Americans were searching for something high. They wanted to stay high forever. But LSD, Drugs, etc had disappointed them. Here was Srila Prabhupad, with the Transcendental sound vibration of the Hare Krishna Maha-mantra.
"HARE KRISHNA HARE KRISHNA KRISHNA KRISHNA HARE HARE
HARE RAMA HARE RAMA RAMA RAMA HARE HARE"
Which kept them high forever. Happy forever. Hippies became Happies. Hippies became the preachers of Bhagavad Gita.
Srila Prabhupad showed his mystical power by converting people who were
Outcast from society
Of no use.
Into Brahmacharis and Sanyasis, Vedic teachers, who were about to teach the whole world.
Hippies became the Vedic teachers.
Fast Forward to SUCCESS :
Created a worldwide organisation "ISKCON" at the age of 72.
Converted the arrogant, misguided, youths, hippies into the preachers of Bhagavad Gita
Changed the lives of lakhs of people around the globe.
Established the supremacy of Vaishnav culture in the west.
Gave 108 Radha Krishna temples, spread across the planet.
Traveled the whole earth 13 times between 1966 to 1976, to preach Vaishnav culture.
Never kept a single penny for himself.
Became the Guru of the whole world.
Wrote so many motivational stories on the way.
Vivek Bindra, The famous motivational speaker, and business consultant made a video of Prabhupad, which tells his whole life story.
There are people in history who became successful, in coming future as well there will be a lot of people who will achieve success. But there are very few who create a revolution, who change the world, who don't only write motivational stories but make other people write their motivational stories.
Prabhupad leads this category, he didn't only achieve a humungous success but also created a system which will create so many such people, who will show us the path to
He an inspiration to crores of people, so much so that, in 2018 the movie "HARE KRISHNA" was released based on him.

Let's get one thing clear, the kind of desires or goals that you have right now
cannot satisfy you.
Because just think about it, in the past when you achieved something, the end result should be that you must be completely happy and satisfied, wherein you shouldn't start something new as you have already put efforts to achieve what you were looking for HAPPINESS and SATISFACTION.
But, you started something new. Why? This means that you couldn't get, what you were looking for?
Stay with me, my dear friend. This is a new concept. Can turn your life 180 degrees.
So, you will ask, does it mean that we should not have any desire or goal.
Me: NO! I never said that. I said, that the kind of desires that you have right now doesn't have the potency to make you completely happy and content.
