39 : Coming Back

After being out preaching, coming back to an ISKCON center is just like coming home, even if I’ve never been to that center before. When I come before Śrīla Prabhupāda in his Deity form, especially after being away from an ISKCON center for some time, I submit myself: “Are you pleased with me?” And it is not difficult to know the answer. Something else about being away from Prabhupāda’s temples for some time is that we really appreciate how kind Prabhupāda was to have given us Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa and Gaura-Nitāi to come back home to. It’s almost worth being away just to get the taste of coming back. I guess going back to Godhead is something like that, but no doubt millions of times better than what I’m able to experience now.
