Devotee should not commit mistake. He's above it. It is my business to worry. Because I do not show the stick, don't take advantage of it. Keep me less anxiety.


Room Conversation -- February 9, 1974, Vrndavana:

Prabhupāda: (indistinct) . . . must include delivery, polishing, everything.

Gurudāsa: If it does, it's good rate. Also this black marble, I've gotten the price in Makrana four, four rupees and fifty paisa.

Prabhupāda: That is excluding labor.

Gurudāsa: Yes. So if they can do it for five, it is good rate.

Prabhupāda: Yes.

Gurudāsa: But if they do it five for just the marble, it is not good rate.

Prabhupāda: No, no. That is not good. It is included everything. That I was informed by . . .

Gurudāsa: Then it's . . . then it is good. It is very good for us.

Prabhupāda: Then we shall accept.

Gurudāsa: Oh, yes. It is good quotation. But he is not willing to do the bank guarantee.

Prabhupāda: Eh?

Gurudāsa: The pound, the huṇḍa, what is it called?

Prabhupāda: Huṇḍi.

Gurudāsa: Huṇḍi.

Prabhupāda: No. That we shall . . . he is not bringing all the goods at a time.

Gurudāsa: Oh.

Prabhupāda: Partially. We have to pay.

Gurudāsa: All right. (break) Śrīla Prabhupāda, I want you to feel that we will do this, and this work, and spend frugally and thrifty.

Prabhupāda: Very frugally. You have already become very unfrugal.

Gurudāsa: I am agitated that you are anxious about it, because yes, I commit many mistakes, no doubt.

Prabhupāda: So, that's all right. Don't commit more, that's all.

Gurudāsa: Yes. But there's also some mistakes I have not committed. There's some very good things that have happened.

Prabhupāda: That's all right. Don't commit mistake.

Gurudāsa: Yes.

Prabhupāda: Devotee should not commit mistake. He's above it.

Gurudāsa: But I want you to feel . . .

Prabhupāda: No. It is my business to worry.

Gurudāsa: Yes, yes. You are the best father I have. My father spared the rod. He spoiled me.

Prabhupāda: Yes.

Gurudāsa: And you are not doing.

Prabhupāda: But don't take, because I do not show the stick, don't take advantage of it.

Gurudāsa: You have shown the stick, verbally.

Prabhupāda: Now do it nicely. Keep me less anxiety.

Gurudāsa: I want to do.

Prabhupāda: It is natural when money is misspent, one who brings money he thinks this.

Gurudāsa: Yes.

Prabhupāda: I take so much trouble, and then . . . that is, that is always . . . (indistinct)

Gurudāsa: Yes. I also would feel that way.

Prabhupāda: So the money raised for the other business, that should be spent for that purpose.

Gurudāsa: Yes.

Prabhupāda: And the temple money . . . so you'll go to the bank tomorrow? Yes?

Gurudāsa: Yes.

Prabhupāda: Which bank he has dispatched the 50,000?

Gurudāsa: Yes, Syndicate.

Prabhupāda: But they have not yet informed. How is that? He said he has already sent.
