Room Conversation

October 18, 1977, Vrndavana
Tamala Krsna: But if I can give my opinion, Srila Prabhupada?
Prabhupada: Hm?
Tamala Krsna: The main necessity right now is not just sleep, because you've been sleeping for many days, and that hasn't gotten you better. Sleeping, of course, is easier. When one is laying down, it's a little disturbing to the mind if he cannot sleep all the time, but sleeping is not so necessary as getting some nourishment.
Prabhupada: No, no, no... Without sleeping, the brain will be...
Tamala Krsna: (laughs) But you have been sleeping a lot, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: That's all right.
Tamala Krsna: You were sleeping so much yesterday, and even while you're taking these medicines. In other words, the idea with the allopathic medicine is that it does many good things. So I'm sure Dr. Ghosh could recommend something to help you sleep. (some whispering)
Prabhupada: Hm?
Tamala Krsna: Dr. Ghosh might be able to recommend something to help you sleep.
Prabhupada: And they will help this, this, this...
Bhavananda: That's why we thought, Prabhupada, we could go to the kaviraja, and he would give a mild medicine for helping to induce sleep.
Tamala Krsna: What about the other medicines?
Bhavananda: If Prabhupada could just take it today, one day more, because, Prabhupada, the good sign is that your urine was more clear than ever, this morning at five-thirty. And that was due to the allopathic medicine.
Hari-sauri: It definitely seems to be having a good effect.
Tamala Krsna: The only bad effect is that you're having a little difficulty last night in sleeping. Is there any other bad effect?
Prabhupada: That is the worst effect.
Tamala Krsna: But the kaviraja could give something for inducing sleep, or Dr. Ghosh could give something. If you can sleep, then the other things are not bad. So why not just take something which will help you to sleep? Then, if the other good things are there, why not continue?
Bhavananda: If the infection from the kidney goes away... But everyone agrees that that has to be taken away. That is the fatal, fatal infection. Kaviraja and allopathic all agree that that urine must become clear and that infection is dispelled.
Tamala Krsna: And that you have to get... The other thing that they all stress the most is that you're very, very weak. So the only complaint now is that you cannot sleep properly. But that's not very difficult. They can give you something to help you sleep.
Bhavananda: And that masseur can come this morning and give you a massage.
Tamala Krsna: Why didn't he come yesterday?
Bhavananda: They told him not to come. I told him to come in the afternoon.
Tamala Krsna: Who told him?
Bhavananda: Visvambhara and Dr. Ghosh. But he can give you a good massage. That will help.
Tamala Krsna: Have you been drinking much this morning, Srila Prabhupada?
Bhavananda: We can cut the dosage of the medicine in half.
Tamala Krsna: Why not just give something that helps Prabhupada to sleep? That's the easiest thing.
Prabhupada: Hm.
Tamala Krsna: Want to turn that side? Or straight?
Prabhupada: Hm.
Hari-sauri: His shoulder's on the pillow.
Tamala Krsna: Cover with light covering?
Prabhupada: Hm? No cover.
Bhavananda: No cover?
Tamala Krsna: The main thing, Srila Prabhupada, is that you get some strength. You were sleeping so much, and you weren't getting any better. The sleeping is necessary, but you shouldn't sacrifice. In order to sleep you should not sacrifice those things which give strength and which take away this disease. You have to get strength, get rid of the disease, and be able to rest nicely. That we have seen, that the kaviraja's medicine is not so effective, neither simply doing without any medicine is so effective. We have not tried allopathic medicine, because within a day or two you always stop it. Whenever you take for one day, then you say, "No more." I think that this... If you want to get better, you have to take some cure. No curethat is not good. And switching from one thing to the other, that is also not good. Why not follow some series of cure, regular, and stay with it for some time? We're not going to let anything severe be done. That's for sure. And Dr. Ghosh has come very long distance, and this other doctor he is taking the help of is supposed to be very expert doctor. So in such a critical condition, why not take the help? What can be gained by again changing to this Vanamali? Just because there was a little inability for sleep, why should you give up all of the, you know, regimentations which they're prescribing? Just like sometimes...
Prabhupada: No, they say "You drink this, drink this, drink this."
Tamala Krsna: But Prabhupada, unless you drink a...
Prabhupada: No. That's all right, but the drinking forcibly, that is a great botheration.
Tamala Krsna: But isn't it... I mean the greatest botheration is that you're not well. And the reason you're not well is that you have no strength. And unless you take in, you're not going to get any strength.
Prabhupada: So how can I take constantly?
Tamala Krsna: It may be bothersome, but it's not so bothersome as being in this ill condition. In order to get better, it seems to me that it's going to be some botheration in order to get better.
Prabhupada: No, no, bother... What botheration? I cannot take so much.
Tamala Krsna: See, it would be easier if we only had to give you three or four times in a day, but you take so little at a time...
Prabhupada: What can I do?
Tamala Krsna: Can't you...? I mean...
Bhavananda: They said that one of the symptoms of this infection isthis poisoningis that you become averse to taking any liquid or any food. Just like you're expressing your aversion that you're not able to. But actually you are able to, but you don't want to. But you have to force yourself in order to get better.
Prabhupada: Then, then the same problem comes, and they will forcibly...
Bhavananda: (whispering) Hospital.
Tamala Krsna: But, Prabhupada, one thing is that if you expect to simply naturally feel like doing this or that, how can you expect something..., to feel naturally hungry if you're ill? Unless the disease goes away... Then naturally you'll feel like drinking and eating. Just like you described to us, when a person is not Krsna conscious he has to force himself to get up early, force himself to chant, force himself to go to arati. Naturally he doesn't feel like these things in the conditioned stage. So similarly, when one is in a diseased condition, naturally he won't feel like taking the medicine or taking the necessary foodstuffs. But if he doesn't force himself, then he can't get out of that diseased condition.
Prabhupada: So that condition is finished. I have no stamina to force.
Tamala Krsna: You won't let us help you to have that stamina?
Prabhupada: How you can?
Tamala Krsna: We can sit you up physically. We can put the liquid in your mouth. All you have to do is agree to it. Physically it's not... It's not physically so difficult. The main question is the willingness.
Prabhupada: But when one's physical strength... You...
Tamala Krsna: I think it would be possible for you to get better, Srila Prabhupada. But I...
Bhavananda: Everyone says, Srila Prabhupada, that liver is good, digestion is good, your heart is good.
Tamala Krsna: Simply you're not taking enough foodstuffs.
Bhavananda: But you won't eat.
Tamala Krsna: But it's not a fact that you cannot eat, because when we gave you the enema, there was stool. Which shows that everything you ate turned into stool or was digested. The only problem was because of lack of energy or strength, you can't pass the stool out. But it's not a fact that it didn't get digested.
Bhavananda: Srila Prabhupada, please try. Srila Prabhupada, your presence on this planet is the only thing which is keeping the onslaught of the Kali-yuga from really taking effect. We have no idea even what will happen if you should leave.
Prabhupada: It is not in my hands. Krsna-Balarama.
Tamala Krsna: I think Krsna and Balarama want you to fight, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: Now I am fallen.
Tamala Krsna: Now what?
Prabhupada: Fallen.
Tamala Krsna: We couldn't hear what you were saying.
Prabhupada: Falling down. Try pass urine. [break]
Tamala Krsna: The urine is getting a little darker, Srila Prabhupada, again. In the last ten and a half hours you've only taken 150 cc's of any kind of drink. If you drink a lot, often, then the urine will become clear because the disease will get flushed out, plus your body will absorb some strength and you'll get the... You won't fall down. You'll get the determination to become better. The determination and strength won't come simply by laying there. It'll come as you drink more and as the disease goes away. I mean I can very easily say, "Don't make the effort. Let Krsna do with you what..." But I think Krsna is doing.
Prabhupada:. What was the quantity or urine?
Tamala Krsna: What was quantity of the urine? About 50, I think. About 50 cc's. I'm all in favor of you increasing your drinking and eating. I know it may be a little difficult. It may be a little difficult, but that's the proper way to get better.
Bhavananda: Yesterday you took over 600.
Tamala Krsna: Seven hundred.
Bhavananda: And this morning at 5:30 your urine was practically all clear.
Tamala Krsna: I mean we have to go on some basis, Srila Prabhupada. And from the... What we can see, we can see. Whatever you ate turned into stool. Now, that is a good sign. That's a good sign. If it didn't come out of its own accord, that's due to less strength. And by drinking a lot yesterday, this morning the urine becomes clear, and by taking those medicines. These are actual, factual things we can observe. One thing is, you don't feel able to sleep. That's a bad thing. And the other thing is your being so weak condition that your willpower is weakened. Your determination is weakened. So so far as those two problems go, for sleeping I know that something can be given to help you to sleep. So far willpower, if you allow us to take care of you, then I think that should be the willpower. Of course, I mean we're not going to let them do anything bad. I mean I'm not going to let anybody take you to the hospital. I wouldn't have done it in London, except that you yourself said we should do it. Otherwise your instructions told to everybody, "Don't let them take me to a hospital." So we're not thinking like that. Neither I'm going to let anybody put any, take any blood specimen or any of those things. It's not required. These things which they're giving you are not... The only harmful effect is that you cannot sleep. But that can be given. To help you sleep can be helped. Otherwise this kaviraja's medicine, it may be less agitating to take, but does it actually work? Now for nearly half a day you have drank only one time a little bit. But you want us to take care of you and help you, then I think you should accept these... I mean they're very reasonable arguments.
Bhavananda: Srila Prabhupada, in the Gita, in one purport you say in the beginning when you undergo treatment, even when you're jaundiced the sugar candy is very bitter. These slight side effects are bitter for you, but if you keep taking the treatment, we know that that will eventually clear up.
Prabhupada: This light massage he is doing...
Tamala Krsna: What, Srila Prabhupada?
Prabhupada: ...it is giving me comfort.
Tamala Krsna: Light massage.
Bhakti-caru: You want it now, Srila Prabhupada?
Tamala Krsna: This massage you were doing is good.
Prabhupada: Dr. Ghosh said no massage. The other doctor says, "No, what is the harm?"
Tamala Krsna: One thing that we have seen is that when Dr. Ghosh and Dr. Gopal talk, they disagree on a number of points. Someone pointed out that Dr. Ghosh is a little bit old-fashioned. He's not so much up-to-date any more. He's eighty-two years old. Just like he gave recommendation for when you wash your mouth, using hydrogen peroxide. Now, Dr. Gopal stated hydrogen peroxide is very cleansing, but nowadays they make things which are not so strong, and without harmful effects of hydrogen peroxide. But because Dr. Ghosh is a little old-fashioned he's not aware so much of these things.
Prabhupada: So? They disagree?
Tamala Krsna: What, Srila Prabhupada? Yes, on some points they do.
Prabhupada: So which is correct?
Tamala Krsna: Which is correct? Well, it's obviously a fact... I mean anybody who's gargled with hydrogen peroxide knows that it's very strong. That's the point. It's very strong. In your condition, it's very strong.
Bhavananda: Dr. Gopal, Srila Prabhupada, he recommended this medicine, and you took this medicine yesterday. And he recommended increase the liquids...
Tamala Krsna: These are all Dr. Gopal's...
Bhavananda: ...and this morning you had clear urine. So...
Tamala Krsna: This is not Dr. Ghosh's prescriptions. These are Dr. Gopal's prescriptions. When they went in the other room after seeing you, these were all recommended by Dr. Gopal.
Bhavananda: And he also was able to analyze your inability to eat and drink as a result of this poisoning from the kidney infection. So he was able to diagnose fairly accurately.
Tamala Krsna: I think, from everybody's point of view, this Dr. Gopal, factually speaking, seemed more up-to-date and able to diagnose correctly according to allopathic standards than Dr. Ghosh. Dr. Ghosh... After all, this allopathic medicine is still a developing science. So Dr. Ghosh's knowledge of it cannot be as up-to-date as someone who's younger.
Bhavananda: Dr. Ghosh was insistent, he wanted you to take Lassix. And Dr. Gopal said, "No, no. Lassix is too strong. There is a new dialysis medicine, very, very, very gentle and mild."
Tamala Krsna: But Dr. Ghosh never heard of it. I think Dr. Ghosh's value is that he's willing to stay here and attend to you. But I think that Dr. Gopal is better to...
Abhirama: They both agreed on it was the same disease.
Tamala Krsna: Yes. They agree that the disease is the same. They understand what the disease is, and they both agree on that. But as to treatment, Dr. Gopal seems to be more aware of the more modern and up-to-date discoveries that science has made than Dr. Ghosh. Dr. Ghosh is aware, more or less, of things which were available ten or twenty years ago.
Bhavananda: We can go and see Dr. Gopal this morning.
Tamala Krsna: Bhagatji said Dr. Gopal is his close friend. He can bring him here once a day if necessary.
Bhavananda: And explain to him that you've had some restless reaction to this medicine and get his opinion and new diagnosis, new medicines, if necessary. And for your liquid intake, if you can take just four glasses of Complan in one day, plus some juice now and then, it won't be so much, so many times you'll have to be bothered. They all recommended that Complan is the very best.
Prabhupada: Hm? What?
Bhakti-caru: Complan, Srila Prabhupada. It's a drink, beverage, like Horlicks. I gave it to you last night.
Bhavananda: Is there some bad effect to it that you feel, Srila Prabhupada, when you take that?
Prabhupada: Not yet, but when it becomes mucus.
Bhakti-caru: That's not milk, Srila Prabhupada.
Hari-sauri: Complan is milk-mixed. At least there doesn't seem to be any mucus this morning, and this is a full day now since you took that chana.
Prabhupada: The chana was nothing. So? What do you want to do now?
Bhakti-caru: Should we make you some Complan now, Srila Prabhupada, and some chana?
Tamala Krsna: We've been giving him Complan for a month. Four times a day is too much.
Bhakti-caru: No. In the morning with some warm drink.
Prabhupada: You give me Complan.
Bhakti-caru: And little chana, Srila Prabhupada? Like yesterday? Okay.
Tamala Krsna: You'll take chana after bathing, washing face, and...? That's when you took it yesterday. Every one of us is in agreement. All of your disciples are in agreement that you require to force yourself to eat and drink more. What can we do if you don't...
Prabhupada: When I don't take anything, I feel more comfortable.
Tamala Krsna: But you don't get better. That is the policy of death.
Prabhupada: So let me die peacefully.
Tamala Krsna: But we already explained to you that we don't want you to die.
Prabhupada: But if I become discomfortable, that will be...
Tamala Krsna: But that's only temporary, this discomfort. It's only temporarily until one gets better. Medicine is only required until one gets better. Then he can throw out the medicines.
Prabhupada: Ah. AHHH! Jaya Krsna-Balarama. Now I am feeling don't force.
Tamala Krsna: Now that he's not eating or drinking anything and no medicines is...
Bhavananda: But your urine is cloudy again.
Prabhupada: Whatever it may be... If you leave me to my fate, I'll feel comfortable.
Tamala Krsna: He said, "If you leave me to my fate, then I feel comfortable. But if you force me, then I feel uncomfortable." Is that right, Srila Prabhupada?
Prabhupada: Yes.
Hari-sauri: But the other day you said that to fast like this means suicide.
Prabhupada: Hm?
Tamala Krsna: I asked you the other night if you would fast, that you should not fast until death. And you said, "No, no. That is suicidal."
Prabhupada: Now I am puzzled.
Tamala Krsna: What, Srila Prabhupada?
Prabhupada: Puzzled.
Tamala Krsna: Puzzled. I mean, we are not able to let you go, Srila Prabhupada. We are not strong enough. We want you to be with us. We need you longer.
Prabhupada: Anyway, what can be done? You give me that preparation?
Tamala Krsna: Complan.
Prabhupada: Hm?
Tamala Krsna: Yes. Bhakti-caru is preparing.
Prabhupada: Where is Giriraja?
Tamala Krsna: Giriraja? You want to see him?
Prabhupada: Where he is?
Brahmananda: He's here.
Tamala Krsna: Probably at arati, guru-puja. Now there's a class. Should we call him?
Prabhupada: No.
Tamala Krsna: He's here in Vrndavana.
Prabhupada: Who has sent the conveyance?
Tamala Krsna: Mr. B. N. Patodiya.
Prabhupada: To whom?
Tamala Krsna: To you, care of Panchashil flat. Actually I have to look at the envelope. I think actually, Srila Prabhupada, it was sent... I'll just check.
Prabhupada: I wanted to speak to you all. Therefore I was asking Giriraja.
Tamala Krsna: You wanted to speak to who?
Prabhupada: To you all.
Tamala Krsna: Shall we call Giriraja? The conveyance was sent to you, Srila Prabhupada, here in Vrndavana.
Prabhupada: You had to take care. But if by Krsna's desire I do not exist during Bombay opening ceremony, then the ceremony should be very gorgeously performed, and everyone should be given sumptuous prasadam, whoever comes. Of course, the opening ceremony should be performed as early as possible.
Tamala Krsna: Here is Giriraja now, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: So?
Tamala Krsna: Giriraja?
Prabhupada: You repeat what I have sa...
Tamala Krsna: Prabhupada said that if he does not exist till the Bombay opening, then it should be performed very gorgeously, and everyone should be fed sumptuous prasadam, and it should be celebrated as early as possible.
Prabhupada: And one thing... Just now I am forgetting. And don't try to make preparation in the temple. Order the foodstuff from confectioner. Have good stock and distribute.
Tamala Krsna: All of the prasadam, or just sweets?
Prabhupada: Sweets. There are many nice sweet supplier in Bombay. Order them... [break] How do you like this idea?
Giriraja: It's very good idea, except that we feel that you should personally be present.
Prabhupada: That is Krsna's desire. You are trying. I am also trying. Now it is Krsna-Balarama's desire.
Bhagavan: You are the jewel that will make it all gorgeous, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: So I am giving the idea. Ha. HAAA!
Tamala Krsna: The Complan is here, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: So what shall I do?
Tamala Krsna: Sit up and drink.
Prabhupada: Yes. Hm. Hare Krsna kirtana.
Tamala Krsna: Kirtana? Do you want some kirtana?
Prabhupada: Soft kirtana.
Tamala Krsna: Okay. [break]
Prabhupada: ...thakur re.(?) I want association of Vaisnava. You are all pure Vaisnavas. You have sacrificed everything, material comforts, for Krsna's sake. That is Vaisnava. Anyabhilasita-sunyam [Brs. 1.1.11]. You have no other desire. You Europeans, Americans, you are born amongst material desires. And when you become free from material desires... Therefore you are all Vaisnava, anyabhilasita-sunyam [Cc. Madhya 19.167]. So you are so merciful. Where Tamala gone?
Tamala Krsna: I'm here Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: So, you are taking care of that conveyance?
Tamala Krsna: Yes, we are, Srila Prabhupada.
Jayapataka: Because you are a paramahamsa, Srila Prabhupada, you are seeing everyone else as surrendered to Krsna. But only by your mercy, you are forcing us to serve Krsna.
Prabhupada: Hare Krsna. One Bengali gentleman has come from New York?
Tamala Krsna: Yes. Mr. Sukamal Roy Chowdury.
Prabhupada: So I have deputed some of you to initiate. Hm?
Tamala Krsna: Yes. Actually... Yes, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: So I think Jayapataka can do that if he likes. I have already deputed. Tell him.
Prabhupada: So, deputies, Jayapataka's name was there?
Bhagavan: It is already on there, Srila Prabhupada. His name was on that list.
Prabhupada: So I depute him to do this at Mayapura, and you may go with him. I stop for the time being. Is that all right?
Tamala Krsna: Stopped doing what, Srila Prabhupada?
Prabhupada: This initiation. I have deputed the, my disciples. Is it clear or not?
Giriraja: It's clear.
Prabhupada: You have got the list of the names?
Tamala Krsna: Yes, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: And if by Krsna's grace I recover from this condition, then I shall begin again, or I may not be pressed in this condition to initiate. It is not good.
Giriraja: We will explain to him so that he will understand properly.
Prabhupada: Hm? Hm?
Giriraja: I said we will explain to the Bengali gentleman just as you have described to us, so that he'll be satisfied with this arrangement.
Prabhupada: And Dr. Ghosh has his scheme, but actually the scheme is there in the Bhagavad-gita and Srimad-Bhagavatam. We want to introduce that scheme to our Gurukula. We haven't got to manufacture scheme. Is that correct?
Giriraja: Yes.
Prabhupada: Let them learn to rise early in the morning and cleanse. This is the first scheme. This will keep their health nice. Catur-varnyam maya srstam [Bg. 4.13]. Unless in the human society the varnasrama system is introduced, no scheme or social order, health order or any order, political order, will be successful.
Bhagavan: Everything is there very clearly in your books, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: A man-made scheme-useless. Sattvika-yuga.(?) What is that verse? Sattvavalambi-para-sattva-visuddha-sattvam... From Brahma-samhita?
Tamala Krsna: Which verse, Srila Prabhupada?
Prabhupada: Sattvavalambi-para-sattva-visuddha-sattvam.
Tamala Krsna: Maya hi yasya jagad-anda-satani sute [Bs. 5.41]?
Prabhupada: Yes.
Prabhupada: Yes. Maya hi yasya...
Prabhupada: Satani sute.
Prabhupada: Traigunya-tad-visaya-veda-vitayamana. The maya, maya hi yasya jagad-anda-satani sute [Bs. 5.41]. Hundreds of universes. Maya hi yasya jagad-anda-satani sute traigunya [Bs. 5.41]. This is made of three gunas. And Bhagavan, sattvavalambi-para-sattva-visuddha-sattvam. In that existence there is no material contamination. (pause) The Bengal government for Panihati, what is their decision?
Jayapataka: At Panihati they have asked us to rewrite a letter. We have already written a letter to the chairman of the municipality. And they are going to take up the matter. After our first application, then the governments have changed. And the municipality was previously managed by a government administrator. Now the government administrator has been removed, and they have replaced the municipal commissioners. So the chairman of the municipality, he requested us to write a letter, and he will follow up the matter. Bhakti-caru Swami and Sarvabhavana dasa met him. They said that he was favorably disposed, but he was not aware of the matter. So since then we have given him a letter. It will take some time to get a reply.
Prabhupada: The government changes and everything changes.
Jayapataka: In India things are very unstable. Government changes and everything is in the air for some time. The local people of Panihati were very eager to have it developed, so it should not be difficult. They have repeatedly requested you... When there is public desire.
Prabhupada: But unless we get authority...
Jayapataka: We'll get the clear title. Otherwise we won't do anything.
Prabhupada: We have to invent some word for... Act very cautiously. Who are present here now?
Tamala Krsna: Giriraja dasa, Jayapataka Swami, Bhavananda Goswami, Hari-sauri Prabhu, Bhagavan Prabhu and myself. We are all sitting around you, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: So, if you want, you can give me little fruit juice. Will that satisfy you? Hm? I have taken that.
Tamala Krsna: Complan.
Prabhupada: No. If I take a little fruit juice.
Bhagavan: Yes, that is very nice, Srila Prabhupada.
Tamala Krsna: Prabhupada said are you satisfied if he takes some fruit juice.
Bhavananda: Oh, yes, yes. And, Srila Prabhupada, if you could just take a little of that medicine. I spoke to Dr. Ghosh, and he said that we'll cut down the amount of the medicine. Bhakti-caru has made it up. Just take a moment to take, and then we can take with the fruit juice.
Tamala Krsna: Is that fruit juice fresh?
Bhavananda: They say yes, it's fresh now. Grape juice.
Tamala Krsna: You want to be covered, Srila Prabhupada? You want to have some covering? [break]
Prabhupada: ...the massage is giving me relief. (sound of mosquito flying)
Tamala Krsna: We are applying it with love, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: The mosquitoes, they are warning.
Tamala Krsna: Don't worry. They won't get you while we're near. The mass... The professional massage man, he massages with oil, and we are massaging with love.
Prabhupada: That oil creates some ant.
Tamala Krsna: Yes. The ants are attracted by its sweetness. But we are only hoping to attract you by the sweetness of our massage. No ants will come.
Bhagavan: Your juice is here, Srila Prabhupada. Would you like to sit up? (pause) [break]
Prabhupada: ...softly and chant Hare Krsna. [break] ...mind, nivesaya, fix up in Krsna. This is Rupa Gosvami method. Yena tena prakarena manah krsne nivesayet. So you are already attached to Krsna. You'll see the picture and enjoy. So you can give this picture to him, his own.
Hamsaduta: We'll put it in his room. (end)
