Prabhupāda: Unfortunately, I am not receiving encouragement from the leaders and the authorities. This is India's glory. History will say. (prasāda arrives) Give it, yes, you can...
Hari-śauri: Pass it out.
Prabhupāda: All people are responding all over the world. They... Money, men, strength, everything they are supplying. But we are not getting very good encouragement from India. Caitanya Mahāprabhu's mission is that every Indian should become guru and preach the instruction of Kṛṣṇa.
- āmāra ājñāya guru hañā tāra' ei deśa
- yāre dekha tāre kaha 'kṛṣṇa'-upadeśa
- (CC Madhya 7.128)
This is Caitanya Mahāprabhu's... And people are hankering after receiving this instruction. Unfortunately, the so-called swamis, yogis, they are going... Or even politicians, they are not presenting Bhagavad-gītā as it is. Anyway, so long I live I shall go on struggling like this. That's all.
Devotee: Jaya Śrīla Prabhupāda! All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda.
Prabhupāda: Hare Kṛṣṇa. So Nitāi, when you have come?
Nitāi: I came just two days ago, Śrīla Prabhupāda.
Prabhupāda: Everything is all right?
Nitāi: Yes, everything is fine.
Prabhupāda: So, now you can disperse.
Devotees: Jaya Śrīla Prabhupāda.
Prabhupāda: Jaya. Take prasāda and chant Hare Kṛṣṇa, that's all. And we have now nice buildings. Live there peacefully, chant Hare Kṛṣṇa. Bas. This is my success. If I see that you are living very nicely, chanting very nicely, then all my labor is successful.
Hari-śauri: Hare Kṛṣṇa. So if all the devotees would like to leave now, then Prabhupāda can rest a little bit from traveling.
Harikeśa: You can distribute prasāda in the hall.
Prabhupāda: Oh, you are older than me.
Older man: Your blessings.
Prabhupāda: Live peacefully, chant Hare Kṛṣṇa. It is for you, so many buildings. Let devotees come, live here peacefully, and chant Hare Kṛṣṇa, that's all. That I want.
Gopāla Kṛṣṇa: There's a lot of devotees visiting Bombay.
Prabhupāda: How many you are housing?
Gopāla Kṛṣṇa: On a permanent basis about forty, but there are a few from different centers.
Prabhupāda: Where you have received this?
Gopāla Kṛṣṇa: Ṛṣabhadeva, president of Spiritual Sky Products.
Prabhupāda: President of?
Gopāla Kṛṣṇa: Spiritual Sky in Los Angeles. He has come on a business trip. They were trying to negotiate buying incense sticks from Mysore, sandalwood, and Bangalore. So they are... Did you get those color proofs I sent you of Bhāgavata? Did you like? It's coming out quite nicely.
Prabhupāda: Not as good, not as good as foreign.
Gopāla Kṛṣṇa: It's not as good as foreign? That is... But we are going to be printing the softbound book for seven rupees.
Prabhupāda: All right, we shall talk later on. Now let me...
Hari-śauri: Maybe somebody could take those flowers and put them in vases.
Gopāla Kṛṣṇa: All the pictures have a garland. Distribute it?
Prabhupāda: So you have come, it is good.
Pālikā: Would you like to take some fruit now?
Prabhupāda: I'll tell you. Not now.
Harikeśa: Haribol. (offers obeisances)
Prabhupāda: Hare Kṛṣṇa.
