The Glorious Mission
by Yugala Kishor dasa

Time magazine printed an edition (Oct 29, 2001) with the Holy Name of Krishna. This is an important step in the right direction for it showed that another name of God is, indeed, Krishna. Millions of magazines were distributed in a single week by that giant firm. Finally, the American media is recognizing that the name of "Krishna" is a valid name of God. Page 11 of that issue had a picture of a Sikh-turbaned acolyte, holding an American flag. The text stated: "May Allah, Krishna, or God bless America."

In these times of quarrel, disagreement, and division within our own ranks, we can find solace in that the holy desire of the Acaryas (Srila Prabhupada, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada, etc.) is gradually becoming manifest. We can venture to say that they are surely happy about this: the Holy Name of Sri Krishna is being spread and validly recognized, even by the so-called non-devotees.

The fact that the American media recognizes that God can be addressed as "Krishna" is due solely to the mercy of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. By his tireless, selfless, and love-laden sacrifice he has brought the most Holy Name of Godhead into the mouth of the Western and Eastern wranglers alike.

Almost as important is the fact that this glorious mission of spreading the Holy Name of Krishna is in the hands of Srila Prabhupada’s sankirtana preachers and book distributors (past, present, and future) throughout the world. They are tirelessly, enthusiastically (and yes, lovingly) bringing Srila Prabhupada’s books to the hands of thousands, perhaps millions, of suffering people, thus putting hope into their shattered hearts that one day they will show up at a temple’s doorstep, ready to purify their otherwise wretched lives.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada’s glorious book distributors!
