Room Conversation -- November 6, 1977, Vrndavana:

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Some people came here to the temple from Manipur today, Śrīla Prabhupāda. Did you preach to them, Svarūpa Dāmodara?

Svarūpa Dāmodara: Yes. They are very impressed. They said they'll come many. They told me they're going to come many, in many numbers.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: What about that temple in Manipur?

Svarūpa Dāmodara: I was thinking that we can start it . . .

Prabhupāda: Receive them nicely.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: What, Śrīla Prabhupāda?

Prabhupāda: The Manipuri devotees, receive them nicely.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Receive them nicely. Didn't some Manipur devotees visit Caitanya Mahāprabhu in Jagannātha Purī sometimes?

Prabhupāda: They go.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: They are all Vaiṣṇavas.

Svarūpa Dāmodara: Yes. Just on the western gate of Jagannātha Purī there is also a place for Manipur. Devotees there, they serve Lord Jagannātha in Purī, special section for Manipur on the western gate of Jagannātha Purī.

Prabhupāda: Everywhere. Navadvīpa there is Manipur Mandir. Here also.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Yes, the Maharani of Manipur Mandir in Navadvīpa.

Indian guest: In Vṛndāvana also, Prabhupāda, there is one? Which is that?

Prabhupāda: The Sevā-kuñja.

Indian guest: Sevā-kuñja.

Svarūpa Dāmodara: Also in Rādhā-kuṇḍa.

Indian guest: Rādhā-kuṇḍa there is, I know.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: That Sevā-kuñja is under the charge of the Manipuri devotees.

Prabhupāda: Manipur devotees are very enthusiastic.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: So is Svarūpa Dāmodara.

Prabhupāda: So Agra University, you lectured professors?

Indian guest: Amongst profesors, or the students also?

Svarūpa Dāmodara: Yes, professors and students; mostly the professors, from all departments: physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology and philosophy.

Prabhupāda: Hmm.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Big!

Svarūpa Dāmodara: They also asked me to bring a film from the Hare Kṛṣṇa movement. So I'm going to show the "Spiritual Frontier" just after the lecture. So I'll go with the Fairchild, the movie projector.
