Excerpt from a morning walk with His Divine Grace in Denver on July 1, 1975.
Brahmananda: He has dedicated his book, "To the parents and to the devotees."
Prabhupada: He has tried to pacify the parents.
Brahmananda: Yes. Another parent is coming to see you today.
Prabhupada: Oh, to accuse me? (laughter)
Prabhupada: Your mother was very angry upon us. (laughter) You know that? When she came to see me, I told, "Mrs. Bruce, can you give me some money?" (laughing) (Imitating angry woman's voice:) "I have given you two sons!" (laughter) She was very angry. "Still you want money?" (laughter) "And that's all right."
Prabhupada: No, I asked him to bow down to your mother.
Brahmananda: Yes, at initiation.
Prabhupada: After initiation.
Prabhupada: I gave her proper respect. Mother, after all, she is. She is fortunate mother. She has produced such nice sons. And I offered her respect, yes. Any of your mother and father, they are all very fortunate. And you are doing... giving the best service to your family. Our Nitai's mother came. She looked very nice lady, yes. I think you are the first child.
Prabhupada: Therefore she looks young, not very old. Within forty?
Nitai: Over forty, I think. Within fifty.
Prabhupada: Oh. But she looks younger. And your grandmother?
Nitai: She is eighty.
