The Universal Teacher

Today is the Appearance Day of His Divine Grace Sri Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada, the Spiritual Master of among others Srila Prabhupada, Srila Sridhar Maharaj and Srila Puri Maharaj  the three Spiritual Masters of our Spiritual Master Srila Paramadvaiti Maharaj. We observe it with this inspiring biographical documentary.

The speaker: 
"During the early part of the 20th century there occurred a unique event in the spiritual history of modern India. In a remote village on the banks of the sacred Ganga there resided a distinguished personality who would, in due course, do more to help raise the consciousness of human civilization than any other person at this time." (0:35)

Srila B.A. Paramadvaiti Swami (Gurumaharaj): 
"Bhaktivinoda Thakura could see that there is also some sincerity in the Western search for truth and answers to the mysteries of life, and he knew that there were the answers – in the Vedas, in the transcendental tradition. So he surely appreciated that an effort should be made to convey this message in a language people could relate to." (12:53)

And at the end of the documentary: 

"Krishna Consciousness is the eternal consciousness of the soul. It is not limited by race, colour, or a particular society. Krishna Consciousness is universal, and those who understand this are indeed fortunate." (54:13)
