Prabhupāda: So you, amongst yourself, consider all these. I cannot tax my brain. So whatever is good, you do it. At Gurudāsa's meeting, we shall be required all to represent there? Some of them may go.
Yamunā: Not all.
Prabhupāda: Not all. Then some of them may go directly to Delhi, and some of them may go via Krishnanagar. What do you think, Haṁsadūta?
Haṁsadūta: I think so, yes.
Prabhupāda: So you consider. Make a meeting amongst yourselves. Decide what to do.
Haṁsadūta: . . . (indistinct)
Prabhupāda: And here, for opening a center it is already proposed that they will give us land and they will give us a temple also. Other buildings we have to manage.
Haṁsadūta: They will give us a temple also?
Haṁsadūta: Where is that temple?
Prabhupāda: Temple we have to construct.
Prabhupāda: But for that construction, temple, they will pay. But for residential and other buildings and maintenance, we have to arrange. That's not a bad proposal. It is nice proposal. They are giving us land, giving us a temple. And we can raise funds and construct as we increase men. In the meantime we can manage the temple. It is good proposal.

Another thing: that Gopāla is not offered sacred thread? You were not doubly initiated? So he can be initiated doubly. And Bruce, what it is? He is not going to be initiated?
Yamunā: I'll have to ask him . . . (indistinct)
Prabhupāda: Huh? No, you can ask later on. He is now practiced to our habits. So he can be initiated. Yes. There is sufficient place. You can sit down here. (break) (Hindi: Please come in.)
You can sit down behind the women. Aiye, aiye. (Hindi: Please come sit at the front.) Come. Come on forward. Come forward. (Hindi: You all please sit at the front.) Now the difficulty is if I speak in English, most probably the ladies will not be able to understand. And if I speak in Hindi, then these . . . (laughs)
Guest (2): . . . (indistinct)
(discussion among guests and Prabhupāda, ladies say they understand English)
Prabhupāda: Speak in English? You can do one thing. You can translate. Huh? That will be nice. So you come here. Svalpam apy asya dharmasya trāyate mahato bhayāt (BG 2.40).
