The Nature of a Mahātmā
“The Western world means countries where the people are gross materialists, who have no Kṛṣṇa consciousness, no God consciousness at all. Therefore, who is able to spread Kṛṣṇa consciousness among them? It is completely impossible, unless, kṛṣṇa-śakti vinā nahe tāra pravartana, one is empowered by Kṛṣṇa’s śakti and becomes kṛṣṇa-śakti-puṣṭa-parikara. That is guru-tattva. One who is sad-guru, śrī-guru, a pure Vaiṣṇava, sādhu mahājana is kṛṣṇa-śakti-puṣṭa-parikara. He is Kṛṣṇa’s eternal associate. He is nourished by kṛṣṇa-śakti. Without kṛṣṇa-śakti no one can spread Kṛṣṇa consciousness alone, by his own strength. It is impossible. Therefore, there is definitely no doubt that Śrīla Prabhupāda was empowered by Kṛṣṇa, empowered by Mahāprabhu. He had received the full mercy of Kṛṣṇa, Mahāprabhu and the previous ācāryas — Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura, Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī, and all other sādhu-mahājanas, who gave him full power.”
