Chapter-29: The Most Amazing Thing in the World

November 2, 1996

By Indradyumna Swami

This morning I heard that a godbrother had died while on a visit to Bangkok. Then this evening Sukamari dasi, a very nice disciple of Partha Sarathi Prabhu, received a phone call to say that her mother had died.  Once again, I found myself helping a devotee come to terms with death and speaking on the temporary nature of life and the need to become Krsna conscious. But when will I truly realize these things and become serious about Krsna consciousness?

kim ascaryam atah param

 “Every day hundreds and millions of living entities go to the kingdom of death. Still, those who are remaining aspire for a permanent situation. What could be more amazing than this?” (Mahabharata)
