I described Srila Prabhupada as “The Poet” in my 2000 Vyasa Puja offering. I’m often struck with his unique and wonderful poetry as I read and re-read his unique writings. In the purport to text 3, second canto, verse number three he writes, “The buildings, furniture, cars, bungalows, mills, factories, industries, peace, war or even the highest perfection of material science, namely atomic energy and electronics are all simple bewildering names of material elements with their concomitant reactions of the three modes. Since the devotee of the Lord knows them perfectly well, he is not interested in creating unwanted things for a situation which is not at all reality, but simply names and of no more significance that the babble of sea waves.” The last sentence of this excerpt struck me as exquisite poetry.
