Abhay Charanaravinda Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada foi um líder religioso indiano, fundador da Sociedade Internacional para a Consciência de Krishna, comumente conhecida como Movimento Hare Krishna. Nascido em Calcutá, Prabhupada migrou para os Estados Unidos em 1965 e surgiu como uma figura importante da contracultura ocidental, apresentando a cultura védica a milhões de pessoas em todo o mundo. Seus seguidores o reconhecem como mensageiro de Krishna.Apesar dos ataques de membros da comunidade acadêmica e de grupos de apologética cristã, Prabhupada recebeu acolhida favorável de muitos estudiosos da religião, tais como J. Stillson Judá, Harvey Cox, Shinn Larry e Thomas Hopkins, que elogiou as traduções de Prabhupada e defendeu seu movimento contra as imagens distorcidas e as más apresentações veiculadas pela mídia.

Prabhupada foi descrito como um líder carismático, no sentido usado pelo sociólogo Max Weber, devido à sua bem-sucedida aquisição de seguidores nos Estados Unidos, Índia, Austrália, países da Europa, da África e outras regiões. Após sua morte, o Movimento Hare Krishna continuou a crescer e desenvolver-se e está presente até os dias de hoje, contando com diferentes sedes ao redor do mundo que celebram a vida de Prabhupada e seus discípulos.

„Quem se deixar guiar por Jesus Cristo certamente obterá a libertação. Mas é muito difícil encontrar um homem que esteja realmente sendo orientado por Jesus Cristo.“

—  Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Actually, one who is guided by Jesus Christ will certainly get liberation. But it is very hard to find a man who is actually being guided by Jesus Christ.

„Modern scientists and so-called scholars think that there are no living entities on planets other than this one. Recently they have said that they have gone to the Moon but did not find any living entities there. But Srimad-Bhagavatam and the other Vedic literatures do not agree with this foolish conception.“

Quotes from Books: Loving God, Quotes from Books: Regression of Science

„Prabhupada: Yes. That is Tulasi dasa’s remark. So in many passages of his poetry he has not done very justice to woman. And another poetry, he writes, dhol gunar sudra nari. Dhol gunar sudra nari ihe sab sasan ke adhikari. (?) Dhol gunar pasu sudra nari, ihe sab sasan ke adhikari. Dhol, dhol means drum, mrdanga. Gunar, gunar means… What is called English? A fool, fool. Illiterate fool, what is one word?
Brahmananda: Buffoon?
Prabhupada: Maybe buffoon. Buffoon is sometimes troublesome. But gunar means he doesn’t understand very nicely.
Brahmananda: Dullard.
Prabhupada: Dull, dull. Dhol gunar, dhol means drum and gunar means dull. Sudra, and the laborer class. Three. Dhol, gunar, sudra, and pasu, household animals, just like cows, dogs.
Brahmananda: Pet.
Prabhupada: Pet, like that. Dhol gunar sudra pasu and nari. Nari means woman. (laughs) Just see. He has classified the nari amongst these class, dhol, gunar, sudra, pasu, nari. Ihe sab sasan ke adhikari. Sasan ke adhikari means all these are subjected for punishment. And what about the guest?
Govinda dasi: Oh, the guest? It’s coming.
Prabhupada: So sasan ke adhikari means they should be punished. (laughs) Punished means, just like dhol, when the, I mean to say, sound is not very hard, dag-dag, if you beat it on the border, then it comes to be nice tune. Similarly, pasu, animals, if you request, “My dear dog, please do not go there.” Hut! (laughter) “No, my dear dog.” Hut! This is the way.(?) Similarly, woman. If you become lenient, then she will be troublesome. So in India still, in villages, whenever there is some quarrel between husband wife, the husband beats and she is tamed. (laughs) In civilized society, “Oh, you have done this?” Immediately some criminal case. But in uncivilized society they don’t care for court or civilized way of…“

Quotes from other Sources, Quotes from other Sources: Violence and Dictatorship

„However great a woman may be, she must place herself before her husband in this way; that is to say, she must be ready to carry out her husband’s orders and please him in all circumstances. Then her life will be successful. When the wife becomes as irritable as the husband, their life at home is sure to be disturbed or ultimately completely broken. In the modern day, the wife is never submissive, and therefore home life is broken even by slight incidents. Either the wife or the husband may take advantage of the divorce laws. According to the Vedic law, however, there is no such thing as divorce laws, and a woman must be trained to be submissive to the will of her husband. Westerners contend that this is a slave mentality for the wife, but factually it is not; it is the tactic by which a woman can conquer the heart of her husband, however irritable or cruel he may be. In this case we clearly see that although Cyavana Muni was not young but indeed old enough to be Sukanya’s grandfather and was also very irritable, Sukanya, the beautiful young daughter of a king, submitted herself to her old husband and tried to please him in all respects. Thus she was a faithful and chaste wife.“

„Why not make me an Hon. teacher in the Religion Department for teaching the cult of Lord Caitanya which is the living religion of the world. All other religions of the world are carried by more sentiments than philosophy but Caitanya cult is full of philosophy and transcendental sentiments or emotions.“

„We are not teaching some ritualistic process, that "You become Hindu. You become Christian. You become Muhammadan." We are simply teaching, "You try to love God. You have forgotten God. You have declared, 'God is dead.' These are all nonsense. God is there. You are here. You are suffering because you have forgotten God. You try to love God. Your normal life will come back. You will be happy."“

—  A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Quotes from other Sources

„Those who are yogis, bhakta-yogis, because they are in love with God, Kṛṣṇa, they are seeing every moment within their heart the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Anyone you love, you see always within your heart. Similarly, if you have love for God, Kṛṣṇa, then you can see Kṛṣṇa always. That is called yoga system.“
