Aug 25, USA – Between Wednesday, August 25 and Monday, August 30, 1965, Srila Prabhupada’s Jaladuta Journal falls silent for six days. On the seventh day, August 31, the silence is broken with these simple words, “Passed over a great crisis on the struggle for life and death.”

 

 

 

 

“Passed over a great crisis on the struggle for life and death. A separate statement has to be written on this crisis area.”

An excerpt from a room conversation recorded June 8, 1976 in Los Angeles offers us some insight into this period of Srila Prabhupada’s historic journey on the Jaladuta.

    Prabhupada: Hmm. So it is a great history. (laughs) There was two days I was attacked in heart on the ship. So hardship.

    Guest: Then you had a dream?

    Prabhupada: Hmm.

    Guest: What was that, Srila Prabhupada?

    Prabhupada: That is…(laughs) The dream was I must come here.

    Guest: It was some instruction that you got?

    Prabhupada: The dream was that Krsna in His many forms was bowing the row. What is called?

    Guest: Rowing the boat.

    Prabhupada: Yes.

    Prabhupada: And when I arrived in Boston I wrote that poetry.*
