Prabhupada: So, everything is going nice?
Aksayananda: Yes, by your grace only.
Gopala Krsna: We have a very beautiful garden for you.
Prabhupada: Garden? Oh.
Aksayananda: Guest house has improved very much. Now we have about twenty paying guests. And during Sravana and Janmastami it was completely full. Very, very encouraging.
Gopala Krsna: Actually many of the life members were telling us, we met some in Delhi. They said they couldn't get the whole thing was full.
Aksayananda: They were fighting to come.
Prabhupada: So, they are allowed three days free?
Aksayananda: Only. Also book distribution has improved very much.
Prabhupada: Locally?
Aksayananda: Here in the temple specifically. Haihaya has been concentrating very good.
Prabhupada: Hindi?
Aksayananda: Yes, Hindi magazines and what we can get.
Gopala Krsna: Visala alone does about two, three hundred every day.
Aksayananda: Visala is...
Prabhupada: Where is our Visvambhara? Visvambhara is helping nicely?
Aksayananda: Oh yes. 100%. [break] And French.
Gopala Krsna: That's the new French Bhagavatam on the back.
Prabhupada: Oh. I think I have seen it.
Hari-sauri: Yes, that's the one we got in Paris, Bhagavan...
Gopala Krsna: It looks very nice.
Prabhupada: Oh yes. Bank is going nice?
Aksayananda: The bank is all right.
Prabhupada: (Hindi) So the Gurukula building, how far? (Hindi)
Gopala Krsna: When devotees come for Gaura-Purnima... (Hindi)
Prabhupada: So let them come first of all here from Delhi.
Indian devotee: They come first here.
Gopala Krsna: Thing is, the whole thing has to be completed in three weeks because the American GBCs don't like... They think it is a very big loss financially. (Hindi) Book distribution stops completely. (Hindi)
Prabhupada: Is that correct? Is that correct key?
Hari-sauri: This one's for some of the locks on the doors.
Prabhupada: Which door?
Hari-sauri: Ah, from the... I think it was one on the bedroom originally. They may have taken them off again.
Prabhupada: Find out the door.
Indian man: (Hindi conversation with Prabhupada)
Prabhupada: ...special quality, he's very tolerant.
Gopala Krsna: He's very cool.
Indian man: (Hindi conversation for some time) Keep patience. I am not dishonest.
Prabhupada: Dishonest or not... (Hindi) Your family is very nice.
Gopala Krsna: Breakfast has come.
Prabhupada: No, I don't want. This man, he's not (indistinct). Jaya.
Devotees: Jaya, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: (Hindi)
Gopala Krsna: By your mercy Balaramaji is giving.
Prabhupada: Nitaiyer koruna habe braje radha-krsna pabe. These rascals they do not know. Nitai, balarama hoila nitai. So without the mercy of Balarama, nobody can appreciate Vrndavana life. Jaya. (end)
