The connection between birth and death

Lecture given by His Holiness Bhakti Prema Swami Maharaj
22 July 2016, Naamhat Boxtel, The Netherlands

Excerpts: see video below
Today we are remembering the disappearance of the mother Ranmaya Gautam of Vrajendra family and we are as well celebrating the appearance of her’s grand son.  I was requested to speak about life after death, but before we speak about that we should actually first know about life itself and how appearance and disappearance are connected.

One might say: “this person is in need of treatment!”
If I say: “Okay you are 45 years old now. Where were you 45 years ago?” He says: “I don’t know”. Isn’t this an abnormal situation?…

The ceremony formed part of the Manor’s offerings to celebrate the 50th anniversary of ISKCON, upon which Mr Cameron heartily congratulated ISKCON on by praising Srila Prabhupada on his creation of a “global mission”.
