Sri Narayana: But are you feeling better, Swamiji?
Prabhupada: Yes. Little, little.
Sri Narayana: Little better.
Prabhupada: (Hindi)
Sri Narayana: (Hindi)
Prabhupada: Therefore always two attendants, and they are taking care. Otherwise personally I would not...
Tamala Krsna: Yes, please sit down. It's all right. It's here for you to sit, so you can...
Sri Narayana: I don't want you to talk loudly.
Tamala Krsna: So you sit down.
Sri Narayana: (Hindi)
Tamala Krsna: You can sit here.
Sri Narayana: (Hindi)
Sri Narayana: (Hindi)
Prabhupada: I'm very glad to see you here. (Hindi) So, Tamala Krsna?
Tamala Krsna: Yes, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: Who has got these films, you can...
Tamala Krsna: Yes. I'm going to arrange it with Aksayananda Maharaja. The temple has everything here.
Prabhupada: Call Aksayananda Maharaja.
Tamala Krsna: All right.
Sri Narayana: (Hindi)
Prabhupada: Just see our activities all over the world.
Sri Narayana: (Hindi)
Prabhupada: South Africa. Is it not South Africa?
Tamala Krsna: Yes, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: (Hindi) Why don't you show them the South African report?
Tamala Krsna: Yes, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: (Hindi) ...slaughterhouse... (Hindi conversation)
Tamala Krsna: This is a temple that was built there. We have a big farm there as well as two temples. This is one of the temples.
Sri Narayana: Where in South Africa?
Tamala Krsna: Near Durban.
Sri Narayana: Near Durban. Accha.
Tamala Krsna: And they had fifteen thousand people attending at the Janmastami celebration. Here you see some go-puja. (Hindi)
Prabhupada: Without culture they're suffering. If you want to mitigate their sufferings, give this Gita culture. That is my experience. (Hindi) We have sold this Caitanya-caritamrta even in Russian countries.
Sri Narayana: Russian countries.
Tamala Krsna: Here are some of our African publications, Srila Prabhupada, published in Swahili.
Prabhupada: African, Chinese, Japanese.
Sri Narayana: (Hindi)
Prabhupada: This is really humanitarian.
Rama-Krsna: (Hindi)
Prabhupada: When I go for parikrama?
Tamala Krsna: Eight-thirty in the morning, generally. Then all of the participants can have darsana and we also have the darsana of the Deities at that time.
Sri Narayana: Deity also. (Hindi)
Prabhupada: (Hindi) ...so we can influence whole world.
Tamala Krsna: Srila Prabhupada? We got report that the recent printing of the Bhagavad-gita will be sold out by June. One million five hundred thousand copies will have been sold in about ten months' time. Fifteen lakhs were sold in ten months just in the United States.
Sri Narayana: (Hindi)
Tamala Krsna: Standing orders was..., I think it was three thousand standing orders.
Prabhupada: Three thousand or five thousand... (Hindi) Three thousand eight hundred.
Tamala Krsna: Three thousand at fifty rupees each.
Bhakti-caru: Eight hundred rupees a set times three thousand.
Prabhupada: (Hindi) I increased my duration of life according to horoscope (Hindi) ...this feeble condition... (Hindi)
Tamala Krsna: Here is Aksayananda Maharaja, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: Ah, Aksayananda Maharaja...
Aksayananda: Yes, Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: The film and... What happened to...?
Sri Narayana: (Hindi)
Prabhupada: (Hindi) I do not know. What, what happened to the Hindu...?
Sri Narayana: What is the latest about the Bombay temple (Hindi)?
Tamala Krsna: We haven't heard anything in the last two or three months, Srila Prabhupada. This telegram came from the former mayor-Ganatra? Rajiv Ganatra? He wrote, "Pray God to give you long life to spread Indian culture in every nook and corner of the universe."
Rama-Krsna: That is the feeling of all, everybody.
Sri Narayana: (Hindi)
Prabhupada: That is Bhagavan, Krsna. Ye yatha mam prapadyate (Hindi) Para-upakara. This is the mission of Caitanya Mahaprabhu, para-upakara. Especially those who have taken birth in India...
(Hindi) This is Indian culture, para-upakara. Indian culture is not meant for exploiting others. Para-upakara. That is human life, para-upakara. And that is Caitanya Mahaprabhu's mission. Bharata, especially... (HindiIndians leave for darsana; kaviraja and Bhakti-caru enter)
Kaviraja: (Hindi)
Tamala Krsna: The main thing we saw today, Prabhupada passed more urine than ever before, and very clear-colored.
Kaviraja: (Hindi)
Bhakti-caru: The telephone is out of order. He was wondering...
Tamala Krsna: Whether we got the reservations?
Bhakti-caru: Yes.
Kaviraja: (Hindi)
Tamala Krsna: What is that?
Bhakti-caru: Srila Prabhupada shouldn't speak so much.
Tamala Krsna: Whew. Yes.
Prabhupada: (Hindi)
Bhakti-caru: (Hindi)
Tamala Krsna: Slowly but surely.
Kaviraja: (Hindi)
Bhakti-caru: He's saying it's impossible, that he had cough today, and tomorrow there is no sign of it. So these are all Srila Prabhupada's pastimes, his own doings.
Kaviraja: (Hindi)
Bhakti-caru: In the morning you have to save the urine.
Tamala Krsna: Which time? The latest possible one. 'Cause he passes urine sometimes two times in the morning.
Bhakti-caru: For last few days, at times he's passing at four o'clock and then again at about six o'clock.
Tamala Krsna: So which one of those two?
Bhakti-caru: (Hindi) Where is the conference?
Tamala Krsna: It will be in the Gurukula building at two o'clock tomorrow afternoon. (Hindi) Srila Prabhupada, you also ate a little bit of vegetable, and you said there was a little taste today. You can tell him. Some vegetable.
Svarupa Damodara: (Hindi) 500 cc, urine.
Tamala Krsna: The Ayurvedic science is very perfect. But the difficulty is that until now we could not find a doctor who understood the science.
Kaviraja: (Hindi)
Tamala Krsna: What did he say?
Svarupa Damodara: He said that the difficulty is to make the medicine. It takes time.
Tamala Krsna: Yes, that's...
Kaviraja: Kidney, it is special.
Svarupa Damodara: It is for kidney, special.
Tamala Krsna: Whew. What is it made from? Srila Prabhupada, Shastriji has made very nice medicine for you, very, very nice. What is that from?
Svarupa Damodara: Twenty-two ingredients.
Tamala Krsna: Distilled. No one will take the time anymore these days. How is it given? How is this given?
Svarupa Damodara: Drink. One once, one dose.
Tamala Krsna: Whew. This is the science. This is real medicine. It took him seven, eight hours, twenty-two ingredients distilled. He has to distill the water first. Twenty-two ingredients.
Kaviraja: (Hindi) (Prabhupada drinks medicine)
Tamala Krsna: This is for the kidneys?
Kaviraja: (Hindi) Vrkka-sanjivani. (Hindi)
Bhakti-caru: Vrkka. V-r-k-k-a. Kidney. The Sanskrit name for kidney is vrkka. Araka(?) means extract, and sanjiva...
Tamala Krsna: What does that mean? Extractive.
Bhakti-caru: Yes. Extract, to revitalize the kidney. No, our medicine for revitalizing the kidney.
Tamala Krsna: Srila Prabhupada, would you like a little soft kirtana?
Prabhupada: No. Now let me take rest.
Tamala Krsna: Take rest. Okay, Srila Prabhupada. (end)
