Mahamsa: Everything he was saying is what he has learned from the Ramakrishna Society.
Prabhupada: There are so many gentlemen who have become poisoned by this nonsense. (breakwalking, chanting japa) Very nice garden. [break] ...you see this nim tree in any other part of the world. It is only in India. Only. (breakHindi) Sixty thousand dollars daily. Every day. This is preaching, real preaching. Substantial. It will remain. Don't pluck anymore. That's all right.
Gopala Krsna: If they see us they may stop us.
Prabhupada: Yes. (Hindi) Kaumara acaret prajno dharman bhagavatan [SB 7.6.1]. This is the process. From the very beginning of life. In Hyderabad that garden, Bala, Bala... You have been?
Gopala Krsna: I didn't go on the walk.
Harikesa: I don't remember the name.
Prabhupada: Bala Havan. Jawar Bala Havan. Three, four big, big buildings, they're closed. What they are teaching to the balas? No teaching. Very old buildings.

Indian man: All the conferences here are educational.
Gopala Krsna: Built by the Americans?
Indian man: Yes. Behind this is a fruit farmer's lot. [break]
Prabhupada: ...the tomb? Very big.
Harikesa: I was just thinking that this was really a case of decoration of the dead body.
Gopala Krsna: Well, see the Taj Mahal. That's thousand times better than this.
Prabhupada: In the gate it is said that bicycle prohibited. [break] ...tomb was constructed before Taj Mahal. Hare Krsna. [break]

After this body, one has to go somewhere. So this is the description, who will go where. Mad-yajino 'pi mam. Those who are preparing to go back to Godhead, they can go. Otherwise, if you go, want to go in the higher planetary system or in the lower planet... That you also go. Hare Krsna.
Gopala Krsna: We go from here. [break]
Prabhupada: ...inquires, "Why you are chanting?" The simple reply is that "We have to go somewhere after death. We are going to Godhead. And you do not know where you'll go." Thik hai? They do not know where they will go. The animals do not know. Huh?
Indian man: We know where we have to go, to...
Prabhupada: Yes. (end)
