Room Conversation

October 30, 1977, Vrndavana
Panca-dravida: Now only one thing is needed, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: Hm.
Panca-dravida: To have you sitting on the vyasasana and preaching like a lion.
Prabhupada: Yes, I wanted to say something. Let us see. [break]
Tamala Krsna: We had no father, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: That is another thing.
Panca-dravida: And no money also. (laughing)
Tamala Krsna: No. We were vagabonds. We were loitering in the street, and you invited us into your home. That's actually a fact. You fed us prasadam, cooked for us. You taught us how to be human beings.
Panca-dravida: Just like these Gurukula kids. You have also taught us even how to dress ourself.
Jayadvaita: And you brought us to Vrndavana, richest place.
Panca-dravida: Full of desire trees and jewels.
Prabhupada: You can provide five hundred students very easily.
Tamala Krsna: Such a nice building. Who would not like to go to school here in Vrndavana? Nice, pure atmosphere. [break] (Bengali)
Satadhanya: ...Vrindavan, he's going to Delhi. From Delhi he'll go to Calcutta.
Prabhupada: Oh. Oh, Vrindavan.

Prabhupada: (Bengali)
Vrindavan De: (Bengali)
Prabhupada: Where is the money? (Bengali) We cannot put fire in the flesh. (Bengali)
Tamala Krsna: Upendra, you should get Prabhupada ready, because the parikrama's ready. [break]
Prabhupada: (Bengali)
Tamala Krsna: Little swelling around the...
Prabhupada: Hm?
Tamala Krsna: There's a little swelling today here, Srila Prabhupada, around the eye. And the hands are kind of swollen.
Kaviraja: (Hindi)
Tamala Krsna: What's that, Bhakti-caru?
Bhakti-caru: When the skin sags, that means that it's...
Tamala Krsna: Going away. Yeah, but here it's...
Bhakti-caru: I was telling him that it comes and goes.
Tamala Krsna: Yeah, it comes and goes. But in the eye it's very much today.
Bhakti-caru: (Bengali with kaviraja) Did he pass stool day before yesterday? Very little in the morning.
Tamala Krsna: Only a little.
Kaviraja: (Hindi)
Bhakti-caru: Srila Prabhupada? I think the kaviraja had a dream last night. (to kaviraja:) You had a dream.
Kaviraja: (Hindi)
Prabhupada: (Hindi conversation with kaviraja and Bhakti-caru about milk, Horlicks, coughing, etc.)
Bhakti-caru: There's another Ayurvedic physician in Rangaji's temple. He's going to arrange for that. Yesterday he already asked him. And he'll be coming today also. (Bengali and Hindi for long period)
Tamala Krsna: Srila Prabhupada? Your Godbrothers Krsna dasa Babaji and Ananda Prabhu, they are here. You want to see them? Also somebody told me that Bon Maharaja has returned to Vrndavana. Is there any reason to call him here?
Prabhupada: If he likes, he can come.
Tamala Krsna: Okay. We don't have to invite him to come. He knows you're here. So he should come of his own accord if he wants. Okay. (conversation continues in Bengali) Srila Prabhupada? I just now can't find Krsna dasa. I'll continue to look. I just saw him about ten minutes ago, when I came back. Maybe he's walking around. If I find him then I'll send him. I'll continue to look for him. (conversation continues in Bengalivisit of Srila Prabhupada's Godbrothers)
Upendra: This is from The Statesman, 24th October? 22nd.
Bhakti-caru: (reads Statesman article to Prabhupada's Godbrothers) [break] (Bengali)
Svarupa Damodara: Oh, I also gave a lecture on the life in its origin. In Mathura there is one veterinary college, the biggest in Asia, about two hundred scholars. We also showed "Hare Krsna Frontier," "Spiritual Frontier" movies. They liked very much. And we're having another lecture Thursday to be given by Thompson in All-India Institute of Medical Sciences. There will be about some two hundred, three hundred scholars from around Delhi. We'll be discussing about life in its origin. And also we are planning to give several lecture in Delhi University, in the mathematics, biology and physics departments.
Prabhupada: (Bengali)
Svarupa Damodara: We have also written books like this. This is a... (Bengali) This is our worldwide preaching program.
Prabhupada: (Bengali) No sentiment"Come on"scientific challenge. (Bengali) No theory. (Bengali-Prabhupada telling about Dr. Kapoor and scientific conference, Fiji, etc.) (Bengali) Tamala Krsna: Here is Krsna-kaliya, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: Ah. Jaya. (more Bengali conversation) What is that?
Satadhanya: Well, this is the Bhagavata-darsana in Bengali.
Prabhupada: (Bengali conversation, with devotees showing Godbrothers various news-clippings, books, etc.) [break] Just get the curtain and try for urine. You read.
Satadhanya: Yes, Prabhupada. It's set, Srila Prabhupada. (end)
