Interviewer: Let me ask you one more question. Why are you returning to India? Had you ever considered staying here in the United States?
Prabhupāda: (chuckles) I have got branches everywhere. Just like I am coming here after traveling so many branches, similarly I am going to India.
Interviewer: So . . .
Bali-mardana: It's part of his travels.
Rāmeśvara: Prabhupāda has no fixed home.
Prabhupāda: I want to see that every center, things are going on nicely.
Interviewer: Oh, I see. I thought you were not returning to the United States.
Cyavana: He has traveled the world . . . sixteen times around?
Prabhupāda: Yes, sixteen times.
Cyavana: Sixteen times around in ten years. So this is a common thing for Prabhupāda to do.
Prabhupāda: Just to inspect things, how they are going on.
Rāmeśvara: Just to inspect things.
Interviewer: But you might . . . might you come back to the U.S.?
Prabhupāda: Oh, yes. Why not?
Rāmeśvara: He might. But there are many projects in India now. That we can talk about.
Prabhupāda: Every years, almost six to seven months, I pass outside India.
Rāmeśvara: Wanda, do you have any more questions you'd like to ask?
Interviewer: I'm looking.
(pause) (indistinct conversation)
Rāmeśvara: We've taped the conversation, and we're going to transcribe it for you and send it to your office.
Interviewer: Oh, we would certainly appreciate it. (break)
