Giriraj Swami : Many times he would paraphrase the Srimad-Bhagavatam or Bhagavad-gita in such a natural way that you would think he was speaking his own thoughts. Once there were construction workers staying on Hare Krishna Land. In the distance Prabhupada heard a small child crying, and he said, “Even in the presence of the mother who gives all care to the child, still the child cries. What is the reason?” Then he gave the answer, “One who is not cared for and protected by the Lord, even in the presence of the mother and the father, suffers.” Prabhupada was saying that when we do something on our own, we may or may not succeed. We must depend on the care and protection of the Lord. Later I found that he was paraphrasing Prahlad Maharaj.
