Three or four men liked me very, very much.
Srila Prabhupada : Three or four men liked me very, very much. One was my father, one was Dr. Kartika Chandra Bose, one was my guru-maharaja, and one my maternal uncle. My guru-maharaja liked me from the very heart, I know. By his blessing everything has happened. I was not worth. What did I . . . I do not know why he liked me. There were so many disciples. And still, he liked me.
Devotee: He could see how pure you were.
Srila Prabhupada: Maybe. Out of his affection, it is his good will. He can like anyone, any dog, doesn't matter. But I know he liked me. Anyone, by his choice of free will, he can love any damn thing. It doesn't matter. That is called kripa-siddhi: "I like this man. This man must be prominent." That is his will. It doesn't depend on qualification.
