Srila Prabhupada’s visit to Malaysia in May 1971 was not for sight-seeing, but to show the people of Malaysia a sight of the spiritual world. During his five-day stay, the lives of thousands were changed. Seeds of devotion to the Lord were planted, many of which have now fructified. Now almost two decades after his departure from this mortal world, many are beginning to realise the significance of his visit and how great a personality he is.
Prabhupada’s greatness lies not only in his personal presence, but is seen more in his gifts to the world-his movement, books, temples and festivals. As the ambassador of Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, he always puts Kṛṣṇa first. He preached the eternal message of the Absolute Truth ‘as it is’ and ignited the flame of devotion to Krsna in the hearts of millions. In his absence the mission he started continues to grow rapidly. While others are busy building houses for themselves, Prabhupada truly built ‘A House For The Whole World To Live In.’
