Conversation with Shri Narayan

May 2, 1977, Bombay
Prabhupada: (Hindi)
Shri Narayan(?): (Hindi)
Prabhupada: Your wife...
Shri Narayan: (Hindi)
Indian lady (1): (Hindi) (Hindi conversation)
Giriraja: This is prasadam of the Deity.
Shri Narayan: Yes. (Hindi) (Hindi conversation)
Prabhupada: Indians, intelligent... (Hindi) Indians... So, but they have sacrificed everything for..., to imitate the Westerners. But Indian (Hindi) knowledge... But we have locked it. Our knowledge, we have locked it, and we are trying to imitate.
Shri Narayan: Yes, true, imitation is not good at all. We must keep our originality and ancient...
Prabhupada: (Hindi) Vedic culture (Hindi) (Hindi conversation) Within ten years I have already written eighty-four books.
Shri Narayan: Eighty-four books. (rest of conversation in Hindi, with few interspersed English words, until Shri Narayan and his associates leave)
Tamala Krsna: Everybody's appreciating this view. All the ladies were standing on the balcony.
Prabhupada: So immediately contact Jayadal and Dalmia, and he has got a nice house. We go to Hrishikesh immediately. It is very nice. Or Patel.
Tamala Krsna: Or Bhogilal.
Prabhupada: Then we haven't got to go Kashmir.
Tamala Krsna: So first we'll contact Bhogilal because he's in the city. If he cannot arrange, then we'll immediately contact Jayadal. Yeah, they're such close friends...
Prabhupada: Yes.
Tamala Krsna: ...they'll immediately do.
Prabhupada: Yes.
Tamala Krsna: And Hrishikesh is known to be very good. Ganga is there.
Prabhupada: So we can go there immediately. That decided.
Tamala Krsna: All right, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: Hrishikesh is appealing. To drink Ganges water...
Tamala Krsna: Yeah.
Prabhupada: ...that and bathing in the Ganges.
Tamala Krsna: Yeah, I immediately feel attracted to going there...
Prabhupada: Yes.
Tamala Krsna: ...'cause it's a holy site. These other places were not so... This Hrishikesh is holy site.
Prabhupada: It is nearer.
Tamala Krsna: So tomorrow I'm going into the city, anyway. I'll go and meet either Bhogilal or Pranlal. I have nice acquaintance with them, so I can meet them. Even if Bhogilal is not here, Pranlal is here.
Prabhupada: One of them can...
Tamala Krsna: He can do also.
Prabhupada: Yes.
Tamala Krsna: So I'll make arrangements. Dr. Sharma is waiting for me, Srila Prabhupada, so...
Prabhupada: All right, you go now.
Tamala Krsna: I should attend.
Prabhupada: You are free. Hare Krsna. (end)
