Iwould also like to thank the other gurus who are mentioned in the book (and has been statedbelow) who have helped the author in clearing the blasphemy which was against SrilaPrabhupada.Thank you Sulocana Prabhu (as stated by the Author of the book) for sacrificing his life to reveal Srila Prabhupada‘s previously hidden letters to everyone, along with his own wonderfulrealizations in his book Guru Business. Chapter seven of the book exposes the pseudo Iskconle aders‘ offensive biography of Srila Prabhupada‘s life, which is an essential service for thefuture of the mission. . It has helped in uprooting the most poisonous weed and has planted the seed for Srila Prabhupada‘s authentic life story, with the following   words ―He left us his ownautobiography, as it is.‖   Srila Prabhupada Liamrta…As It Is helps in fulfilling the authors first purpose in revealing to theworld exactly who Srila Prabhupada is and how he has nothing whatsoever to do with the corruption going on amongst ISKCON‘s leaders today. Thanks to George Harrison Prabhu (asstated by the author of the book) for humbly assisting Srila Prabhupada in spreading the Hare Krishna Mantra throughout the world and for bringing so many souls to His Divine Grace‘s shelter. In his passing from this world he has profoundly awakened Krishna Consciousness in theinnocent public and purified the whole atmosphere which had become so polluted due to sinfulactivity, particularly the blasphemy of Srila Prabhupada.Thanks to Sanat Prabhu (as stated by the author in the book) for risking his life, exposingthe demons crime of poisoning Srila Prabhupada and for striving for several years to wake up thefalse reform, so called Prabhupada followers, (Pada, Nityananda das et al) that Srila Prabhupadahimself had clearly indicated he was being tortured and poisoned ―unto death . ‖  Moreover I would also like to thank Mr. Krishnakant for writing The Final Order which proves   Srila Prabhupada‘s as Initiating Guru which has been foreword by Dr. Kim Knott (Professor of  Religious studies, Leeds University, U.K). In this book he has tried to solve ISKCON‘s leadership and initiation difficulties (IRM v/s GBC). He has been able to commend what is as aserious attempt to argue the case that Srila Prabhupada established a system of  ritvik  gurus whomhe intended would initiate disciples on his behalf.  Prologue:Hare Krishna Hare KrishnaKrishna Krishna Hare HareHare Rama Hare RamaRama Rama Hare Hare His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada is considered the foremostcontemporary (1896-1977) authority onbhakti - yoga,devotional service toKrishna(God) as taught by the ancient Vedic writings of India. Srila Prabhupada (as he's known to his followers)translated and commented on over eighty volumes of sacred bhakti texts, such as the Bhagavad-Gita and the multi-volumeSrimad - Bhagavatam .  Srila Prabhupada boarded a steamship bound from India to New York City in 1965. At age sixty-nine, with forty rupees and a trunk of his Bhagavatam commentaries  —  the first ever inEnglish  —  his aim was to introduce India's message of peace and goodwill to the westernworld. He represented a lineage of spiritual masters extending back toChaitanya Mahaprabhu, the divine avatar who spread Krishna bhakti all over India in the sixteenth century. During thelast twelve years of his life, Srila Prabhupada would inspire thousands of Westerners and Indiansto devote their lives toKrishna consciousness,launching one of the fastest-growing spiritualmovements in the history of the world.He considered his translations and commentaries to be divinely inspired, practical guidebooksfor the spiritual and material benefit of human society. Many scholars and professors who metSrila Prabhupada and became familiar with his work continue to use his books as standarduniversity texts, and regard him as a genuine, realized, and scholarly teacher of bhakti.With the help of his students, he founded the International Society for Krishna Consciousness( ISKCON ). ISKCON became popularly known as the Hare Krishna movement, due to itsmembers' widespread practice of chanting the  Hare Krishna mantra  in public. SrilaPrabhupada intended ISKCON to facilitate the association and education of bhakti-yogapractitioners, and his followers continue to spread his mission.
