Anyway, you remain strong. Don't be intimidated by this (indistinct). That is my request.


Prabhupāda: Be very careful.

Akṣayānanda: . . . (indistinct)

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Actually, Śrīla Prabhupāda, Your Divine Grace and this movement is the only substantial movement left in India now—in the whole world.

Prabhupāda: Yes. You can have signboard: "No Māyāvādīs visit(?) here." (laughter)

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Wow. Just like "No dogs allowed." (laughter) Are you serious about that, Śrīla Prabhupāda?

Prabhupāda: Hmm . . . (indistinct)

Brahmānanda: If they come and they want to hold meetings, we show them the signboard that "We don't allow Māyāvādīs here."

Prabhupāda: Yes . . . (indistinct)

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Yes. On the signboard we'll quote the verse from Caitanya Mahāprabhu.

(indistinct comments by devotees—sound of something being moved)

Prabhupāda: Why they do not hold meetings in Bon Mahārāja's . . .?

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Well, there's a number of reasons. One is that you are not in Bon Mahārāja's place, and they wanted your presence, because they are inconsequential without you. And another thing is that Bon Mahārāja's place is a little bit archaic, dilapidated. . . . (indistinct) . . .

Brahmānanda: I remember you went there I think two years ago, and . . . (indistinct) . . . Bon Mahārāja there within one room. And he came to turn the light on in the room, and there was no light bulb in the socket. They had to go and get a light bulb and put it in. I mean he doesn't even use that room.

Prabhupāda: It is closed now.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Soon he will rent a room here in the guesthouse.

Akṣayānanda: He was there at the . . . (indistinct) . . . This morning.

Prabhupāda: In the guesthouse they can remain. But they cannot hold meeting.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Hold the meetings.

Brahmānanda: They were asking me that we should cooperate with them, but they are envious of us. This one woman, the way she was speaking to me, it was quite . . . She was attacking me, she was so envious. She was quoting Bhagavad-gītā that Kṛṣṇa recommends the impersonal.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: So why is she talking? Why talk? Everything is illusion, then why talk?

Brahmānanda: She said there are two paths. I said, "Yes, but your path is most difficult. So why are you promoting the most difficult path to follow?" . . . (indistinct) . . . following Bhagavad-gītā.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: But who cares for her path?

Akṣayānanda: (indistinct) . . . a different path.

Prabhupāda: Anyway, you remain strong. Don't be intimidated by this . . . (indistinct) . . . That is my request.

Akṣayānanda: Jaya Prabhupāda.

Brahmānanda: Are any of the Gosvāmīs coming?

Akṣayānanda: No, not that I know of. They said no, Śrīla Prabhupāda.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Śrīla Prabhupāda? I think we should go to . . . (indistinct) . . . We will do just exactly as you said.
