WELCOME  When Srila Prabhupada arrived in American in 1965, he delivered what he often referred to as “the science of Krishna consciousness” – the philosophy, theology, and spiritual practices given by Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad-gita and taught in other scriptures as well. Srila Prabhupada opened up a new world to us. And like any world, an essential component of it is the people living in it.

The world of Krishna consciousness is filled with people devoted to God, especially in His form as Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Srila Prabhupada’s spiritual lineage traces back to Lord Krishna in His descent as ?ri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu five centuries ago, disguised as a devotee to teach the process of devotional service. One of Lord Chaitanya’s most prominent disciples was Srila Rupa Gosvami, an exemplary pure devotee of the Lord who under Lord Chaitanya’s direct instruction wrote the comprehensive devotional guide Bhakti-rasamrita-sindhu.

Srila Rupa Gosvami was one of the cornerstones of Lord Chaitanya’s movement, distinguished even among the numerous pure devotees who assisted the Lord in His mission. Like Srila Rupa Gosvami, Srila Prabhupada, through his character and teachings, faithfully delivered Lord Chaitanya’s message to the world. In this issue, Rukmini Vallabha Dasa highlights Srila Prabhupada’s fidelity to Srila Rupa Gosvami in “Srila Prabhupada: Expert and Exemplary Rupanuga.”
