Ladies and gentlemen, on behalf of my most beloved Lord and master guru maharaja, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, we welcome you to this auspicious occasion where we are celebrating the glories of the one-hundredth anniversary of the appearance of Srila Prabhupada in this world. As we have heard Srila Prabhupada gave his life as in utter sacrifice to bring the glories of Krishna throughout the world.
Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu playing the part the of perfect devotee, when He saw that His being a grhastha, was impeding people from hearing His message, He was going to give up, renounce His most loving, chaiste and faithful wife and His most loving mother. Such a wife and mother, nobody could possibly give up in this world.Generally, when a person is ready to take sannyas, he is pretty much frustrated with his family life. I have been so long, now I will be liberated from all of these anxieties, all of these demands, all of these entanglements.
