Prabhupada’s ‘Miracle’

Sometimes ISKCON people think of Srila Prabhupada as omniscient in the sense that he knows how many atoms are in a particular iron molecule or how many hairs are on your head. He is sometimes said to know exactly what thoughts are in your mind at any time. What Sruta kirti, Prabhupada’s servant for over two years, has emphasized, is that Srila Prabhupada’s ‘omniscience’ was that he knew everything his spiritual master wanted him to know and everything his disciples needed to know. He had absolute faith that whatever the sastras and previous acaryas in the disciple line wrote, was absolute. This was his ‘miracle.’
