Srila Prabhupada departs for Vrindavana to leave his body. (Srila Prabhupada once said that when a Vaishnava departs this world, we feel simultaneously happy and sad. We feel happy because we know that the Vaishnava has gone to Krishna, but we feel sad because we will miss his association. Fortunately, Srila Prabhupada continues to live through his books. His vani or instructions are our guiding light back to Godhead. So Srila Prabhupada, during his lifetime, repeatedly stressed the need to associate with vani rather than vapuor physical association. He declared that he would live on in his books for the next ten thousand years.)
