1976 Conversations and Morning Walks

Eightfold, but..., eight grahas.
Morning Walk Excerpt -- April 2, 1976, Vrndavana:

Ādi-keśava: (break) ...the devotees are asking one question. They're wanting to know how it was that even though there is so much distance between, let's say, Govardhana and Rādhā-kuṇḍa and Vṛndāvana, Nanda-grāma, Varṣāṇā, how it was that still Kṛṣṇa and Rādhā could go and meet, and the cowherd boys could go and meet at these various places. They could go such great distances.

Prabhupāda: That is distance for you, not for them. Just like a small ant. It goes from here to here. It is a great, three hundred miles, but for you, one step. Why do you study Kṛṣṇa like you? Why do you think that Kṛṣṇa was like you? Avajānanti māṁ mūḍhā mānuṣīṁ tanum āśritam (BG 9.11). Kṛṣṇa can do anything, so His associates.

Pañca-draviḍa: In the Upadeśāmṛta, in the translation you refer to this, the līlā-aṣṭa...

Tripurāri: Aṣṭakāla-līlā.

Pañca-draviḍa: Aṣṭakāla-līlā. What is that exactly? Eightfold līlā or some...?

Prabhupāda: Eightfold, but..., eight grahas.

Gurudāsa: Śrīla Prabhupāda? So the timings are.... At new Govinda temple the...

Prabhupāda: New Govinda temple?

Gurudāsa: New Govinda and old Govinda, both. Starting at 7:30 is the dhūpa-ārati, and then, nine o'clock, is another ārati, then the rāja-bhoga ārati is at 11:30. Gopīnātha's temple is staggered, a little after 7:30, and the Rādhā-ramaṇa temple is 8:30. So they stagger like that. So the next ārati will be 7:30.

Prabhupāda: But in the morning, before...

Gurudāsa: Five o'clock. They start at five. The maṅgala-āratis start at five. (end)
