On Dec. 3, 1936, Srila Prabhupada received His last instruction from His Guru Maharaj, which was printed in the First Issue of ‘Back to Godhead’ in 1944……….
#Prabhupada: It may not be out of place to mention herein that His Divine Grace Sri Srimad Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswaty Goswami Prabhupada, just before his departure from this mortal world, wrote me a letter from Puri dated the 3rd December, 1936 directing me towards my duty in fulfilling His mission in the world for propagating the religion of Divine Love as propounded by Lord Chaitanya. In course of writing that letter, He wrote the following lines amongst other things:
“I am fully confident that you can explain in English our thoughts and arguments to the people who are not conversant with the languages of other members. This will do much good to yourself as well as your audience. I have every hope that you can turn yourself a very good English preacher if you serve the mission to inculcate the novel impression to the people in general and philosophers of modern age and religiosity.”
And when I was consulting my well wishers and friends who are able to help me in this great adventure, all of them encouraged me in this connection.
