|SO THERE MAY BE SUCH THINGS|
So Vaisnava, Caitanya Mahaprabhu has taught us that how we shall preach this Krsna consciousness. Don't be disheartened because the police is obstructing, because the people are complaining. They will do that. Just like... Why this police and public? This poor, innocent boy, five years old, because he was chanting, his father became his enemy. His father, what to speak of others. So it is such a thing. In any... You try to trace out the history of the world, you'll find always persons who are for Krsna or God, they have been persecuted. Lord Jesus Christ was crucified, Haridasa Thakura was caned in twenty-two market places, Prahlada Maharaja was tortured by his father. So there may be such things. Of course, Krsna will protect us. So don't be afraid. Don't be afraid if somebody tortures us, somebody teases us. We must go on with Krsna consciousness without any hesitation, and Krsna will give us protect. If you are more tortured, then Krsna will appear as Nrsimhadeva and give you all protection. You are all Prahlada, representative of Prahlada. You keep your confidence in Krsna, and He will give you protection, and go on chanting Hare Krsna.
Thank you very much.
(Srimad-Bhagavatam Lecture 7.9.8 Seattle, October 21, 1968)
Note: So here is another hint from Srila Prabhupada as early as 1968 that he would be persecuted, tortured and teased.
The most interesting thing to note is that Srila Prabhupada says " You try to trace out the history of the world, you'll find always persons who are for Krsna or God, they have been persecuted. This is another very strong evidence to add to the already clear cut evidence that Srila Prabhupada was tortured and poisoned to death by his judas disciples. Historically Krsna Conscious persons have always been persecuted, why would Srila Prabhupada be an exception to this rule ?
Srila Prabhupada has come to fulfill the desire and complete the work of all the previous Acarya's. So because of this great service he is doing he will be the number one target for the demons to persecute.
"My Guru Maharaja was attempted to be killed.....So preaching work is always risky"
So this is Nityananda. Nityananda-vamsa means one who takes the risk of preaching work, he can claim Nityananda-vamsa. Not that easy-going. The preaching work is not easy-going. There are so many difficulties. All the big, big preachers... Sri Ramanujacarya. His life was attempted to be killed. Why Ramanujacarya? My Guru Maharaja was attempted to be killed. Twenty-five thousand rupees were raised fund for bribing the police officer. He told me personally. The Navadvipa, Navadvipa Gosais, they wanted to kill him. So preaching work is always risky.
(Srimad-Bhagavatam Lecture 1.2.5 Vrndavana, October 16, 1972)
"Because you are speaking of God, therefore we shall kill you." And actually it actually happened. This is demonic.
Just like in the Bible, the first injunction is "Thou shall not kill." This means the people were, in those days, at least people who were all around Christ, they were very much expert in killing. Otherwise why he says first, "Thou shall not kill"? So this injunction must be followed. Unfortunately they first of all killed Jesus Christ: "You are speaking 'Thou shall not kill'? I shall kill you." Just see. This is the position. "So what is my fault? You want to kill me?" "Because you are speaking of God, therefore we shall kill you." And actually it actually happened. This is demonic.
So there are many other instances. Prahlada Maharaja, five years old boy, he was chanting Hare Krsna. His father did not like. "Why you are chanting Hare Krsna?" "Because Krsna is the Supreme Lord." "Krsna is Supreme Lord? I am Supreme Lord. You do not do this." So the boy would not give up. So the father was even prepared to kill a five year old boy. The fault was that he was chanting Hare Krsna. He was given poison. He was thrown into the fire. He was pulled from the hill. He was very powerful king, and whatever he ordered his servant carried out, but he was saved in all circumstances by Krsna.
So this is demonic nature. They will simply try to suppress Krsna consciousness movement because these symptoms are there, na saucam napi cacaro na satyam tesu vidyate.
(Bhagavad-gita Lecture 16.7 Hawaii, February 3, 1975)
Note: So the those of demonic nature they will simply try to suppress Krsna consciousness movement and they will try to kill Srila Prabhupada in his Vapuh (form) and Vani (instructions, original books) because he is speaking of God very LOUDLY (Brhat Mrdanga - Transcendental Book Distribution).
"This is the attitude of nondevotees toward devotees"
Hiranyakasipu planned a campaign to kill Prahlada Maharaja. He would kill his son by administering poison to him while he was eating, by making him sit in boiling oil, or by throwing him under the feet of an elephant while he was lying down. Thus Hiranyakasipu decided to kill his innocent child, who was only five years old, simply because the boy had become a devotee of the Lord. This is the attitude of nondevotees toward devotees.
Note: Srila Prabhupada says there are many jealous persons in the dress of Vaisnavas in this Krsna consciousness movement: There are many jealous people in the dress of Vaisnavas in this Krsna consciousness movement, and they should be completely neglected. There is no need to serve a jealous person who is in the dress of a Vaisnava. (Caitanya Caritamrta Madhya Lila 1.218) These jealous people in the dress of Vaisnavas planned a campaign to kill Srila Prabhupada. They would kill their Guru by administering poison to him while he was eating or drinking and change his transcendental books. Thus these judas disciples decided to kill Srila Prabhupada, simply because he was a devotee of the Lord. This is the attitude of jealous nondevotees in the Krsna Consciousness Movement toward Srila Prabhupada.
