June 30, 1977, Vrndavana
Prabhupada: Guru Maharaja, he saw this. Now I remember those days, when he was instructing, "Do like this. Do like this." At that time, I could not understand. "Oh, why he's talking to me?" He wanted. "Jaya Svami! Jaya Svami.(indistinct)" More stress required. But many men and may not...(indistinct) So just attempt. Ask him. Bring some books when you leave. Then construct a... No, He is giving. Krsna is giving money. Within few days you have collected fifty thousand. Where is the scarcity of money?
Gargamuni: Nowhere in the world. Everyone has money.
Prabhupada: (laughs) Money is coming there. Guru Maharaja said that "You do the right work, money will come. Money will fall down on your feet." There is no question of flattering. Do. Work sincerely. Everything will come, whatever you want. I wish I could go there. I would have told(?). Even in this state I can go. There is no difficulty. But little difficulty... And carried in this chair, I can go anywhere. And what is this? No, where is the difficulty?
Tamala Krsna: No, yeah, as long as you're sitting...
Prabhupada: Even I require four men to take care of me, that's all right.
Tamala Krsna: Whether you're sitting in here or sitting in Colombo, it's the same.
Prabhupada: It is same thing. And I am taken from one place to another by chair. So where is the difficulty? There is no difficulty. It is difficulty by imagination.
Tamala Krsna: Yeah.
Prabhupada: Otherwise no difficulty. Jaya Krsna-Balarama. Nitai-Gaura Radha-Syama, Jaya Krsna-Balarama. It is symmetrical.
Tamala Krsna: Very symmetrical. Very... Actually it goes in my mind a lot now.
Prabhupada: Jaya Krsna-Balarama. Who has got strength like Balarama? Balarama, He can do everything by His strength. We are depending on Him, Balarama. He can please everyone, and He has got immense strength to do anything He likes. Jaya Krsna-Balarama. Now these sakhis, asta-sakhi, there is no instance we have displayed. Why they should be kept inside? Only one man should be under a cloud(?), in an upturned (indistinct).
Tamala Krsna: Nice. Nice.
Prabhupada: Oh, yes.
Tamala Krsna: Temple is very attractive. People come in. They walk all the way around, looking at all the paintings, talking about them...
Prabhupada: This new architecture(?)...
Tamala Krsna: It's the most unusual temple in Vrndavana.
Prabhupada: And it is not meant for making money. It is meant for giving service. And that is the difference.
Tamala Krsna: The pandas, they don't tell the people to throw money here. In the other temples they make an arrangement with the pujari that anything you get from someone, "If I bring him," it's a commission. But we don't make any deals with them, so they don't tell the people. So if anybody throws anything, it's out of their own feeling. That's more respectable.
Prabhupada: They are giving in the churches more and more.
Tamala Krsna: Now, when anyone visits Vrndavana, they have to see Krsna-Balarama Mandir.
Prabhupada: Oh, yes, compulsory.
Tamala Krsna: So Srila Prabhupada, you say that Balarama is so strong, but you have brought Balarama here, so you are stronger, I think.
Prabhupada: No, this is the right place(?), Krsna-Balarama, Mother Yasoda's sons, Yasoda-nandana, Rohini-nandana. Krsna's only business is how to deal with gopis. Gopi-jana-ranjana. And... Gopi-jana-ranjana?
Satadhanya: Gopi-jana-vallabha?
Prabhupada: Gopi-jana-vallabha, yes. That's all.
Tamala Krsna: Jaya Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: Jaya Krsna-Balarama. (end)
