The Radiant Rose
By Jyotirmaya das

Dear Devotees and Friends,

I heard a story the other day that was not related to Krishna Consciousness but could be applied very easily. The speaker was saying that once there was a rose that somehow grew from the concrete. And someone remarked that it looked weak, and another person remarked that it was growing on too much of a slant. But the speaker took note that although a very amazing thing had occurred — a rose had grown from the concrete — still the others were more interested in the imperfections of the rose.

This can be applied to our ISKCON movement. Even though it has grown from America in the West (the concrete), still the critics will only take notice of its faults and imperfections, not that amazingly it has grown from the West by Srila Prabhupada's endeavor.

Jai!

Your servant,
Jyotirmaya das
