I Wish to Die Without a Doctor
Prabhupāda: Better to die without a doctor. That's the best principle. Don't call any doctor. Simply chant Hare Kṛṣṇa and die peacefully.

(Srila Prabhupada Lecture, Gorakhpur, February 14, 1970)

Prabhupāda: Simply they are cheating. There was one gentleman, English gentleman, Sir William Temple. He used to say, "I wish to die without a doctor. Don't bring doctor."

Devotee: Without a doctor.

Prabhupāda: Yes. "Let me die peacefully. Don't bring doctor." I say also. Don't bring doctor here when I am diseased.

(Srila Prabhupada Morning Walk, Mauritius, October 25, 1975)

Devotee: We know you have a very low opinion of doctors. (laughter)

Prabhupāda: I wish to die without a doctor. Don’t… When I am… It may be, I may be seriously, but don’t call doctor. Chant Hare Kṛṣṇa. Don’t be disturbed. Everyone has to die. Let us die peacefully, without doctor. All this medicine, injections and prohibitions, this, that.

Devotee (2): Tīrtha Mahārāja had all kinds of machines. Still didn’t save him.

Prabhupāda: Chant Hare Kṛṣṇa and depend on Kṛṣṇa.

(Srila Prabhupada Conversation, Bhubaneswar, January 19, 1977)
