Brahmananda: If we think about our spiritual master, is that as good as thinking of Krsna?
Prabhupada: Yes, because it is said, yasya prasadad bhagavat-prasadah: ** “If you can please your guru, then you please Krsna.” So if you make always this plan, “How to please my guru,” then you’ll please Krsna.
Devotee: Srila Prabhupada, it is said in the Bhagavad-gita that if one thinks in the time of death, if he thinks of Krsna, he goes to Krsna. What if one thinks of his spiritual master?
Prabhupada: He will go to Krsna, because his spiritual master is also going to Krsna.
