The term “guru,” which is used in marketing to describe someone in the West whose knowledge has won them some admirers, actually comes from the Sanskrit word for “teacher” that dates back thousands of years.In the original Vedic culture, the teacher was a saintly figure whose role was essential in guiding the spiritual progress and development of the disciples or students through instruction in specific ceremonies, rites of passage, and enlightenment about the material and spiritual realities, as well as their true purpose in life.One of the greatest gurus in the history of gurus is Srila Prabhupada. His extraordinary capacity to transmit a traditional spiritual culture in a foreign country is evidence of his effectiveness as a guru.

His skill is evident in his ability to demystify spiritual truths with perceptive explanations and analogies and make ancient wisdom applicable to contemporary man. People of all ages and from all nations around the world have been profoundly affected by his ability to comprehend the innate nature of his students and those who came into contact with him. Numerous individuals from all over the world joined his group of followers and students. But Srila Prabhupada was no ordinary teacher; his function and purpose had been foretold by the sages of old, earning him the title of acharya, or “teacher of teachers.” The acharya is also revered for initiating a global movement and altering society’s consciousness, as Srila Prabhupada did.

He translated more than 70 books into English as a knowledgeable student of ancient Vedic knowledge; these books are now available in over 75 languages and have been distributed to more than 450 million people. For his philosophical insight and scholarly presentations, especially his translations of philosophical treatises like the Bhagavad-Gita and Srimad Bhagavatam, he received honours from many Eastern and Western scholars. He was a renowned literary giant with unmatched depth of knowledge. Despite leading a global movement, Srila Prabhupada continued to show his disciples that he cared about them personally. His followers describe him as a loving friend, a generous father, and a deeply compassionate teacher. He frequently ended his letters with the phrase “Your Ever-well-wisher,” which symbolises the unwavering devotion a teacher has to his students’ development.
