Srila Prabhpada is a very special, holy, unique and empowered person… He succeeded in what many of them before him didn’t. This profound, ancient Vedic knowledge newer before went out of Indian borders and it was consequently exclusive right only of those born in India… After noticing a great need to take this knowledge out of the Indian borders as well - especially to the far west - where people are so much covered by materialism… few of them before Prabhupada tried to do something about that, but nobody could do so much as Prabhupada did. After Prabhupada has managed to “build“ bridge between East and West and to transmit this priceless knowledge on the West, many of them started to use that bridge and later have overflow West with different kinds of Yoga and pseudo gurus… Still, that person stayed one of the biggest sages and saints of nowadays because he did a great thing, allowing us – western people to take the road of Bhagavata dharma and eternal happiness… We owe him eternally; We are his eternal debtors. In his honor our Temple in Karovac was opened… let us now see his biography…
