Prabhupada said that “Anyone who is my disciple is my disciple, anyone who takes initiation from my any of my disciple is my grand disciple.” So everyone is connected with Srila Prabhupada. They are part of his disciplic succession. And no matter what happens we have direct connection with Srila Prabhupada. And our only duty is ultimately, whether we are children or grandchildren or great grandchildren or great great grandchildren or 50 generations from now, is to carry on Prabhupada’s desire for spreading Lord Caitanya’s message, for establishing Lord Caitanya’s desire in the entire world. Prabhupda doesn’t have his own desire. His desire was only to spread Lord Caitanya’s desire as was manifested by the previous acharyas.
