Dhanañjaya: Well, I showed this to all the GBC, and Balavanta took especially great interest.
Prabhupāda: It is silver?
Dhanañjaya: No. In brass.
Gopāla Kṛṣṇa: Can you silver-coat it?
Dhanañjaya: Yes, we can silver...
Prabhupāda: They have done nice.
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: It's very small.
Dhanañjaya: But this is also meant for householders.
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: It's nice for householders, but for big temples it's very...
Dhanañjaya: For small temples.
Dhanañjaya: We'd also like to prepare one of Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura.
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: It looks good.
Prabhupāda: But looks good, that's good. (laughter)
Abhirāma: I know I would like to have one in my house.
Prabhupāda: Yes. It is good.
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Playing the karatālas, preaching.
Prabhupāda: Nobody's going to see what is within. He looks good, that's good. Just like they are making statue very nice.
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: In Los Angeles, Bharadvāja.
Prabhupāda: So do nicely, quickly, and spend money. That's all. (laughter) I want to see things are done very nice. Never mind money is spent.
Dhanañjaya: I also looked into this weaving of silk Benares saris.
Dhanañjaya: You mentioned that we should encourage cottage industries here and...
Prabhupāda: What is that?
Gopāla Kṛṣṇa: Cottage industries.
Dhanañjaya: And so these handlooms are available, but along with the looms you must have expert weavers, handloomers.
Prabhupāda: So why you are bothering if you have no expert? You have to find out expert weaver. Why? We are not for industry. Why should we divert our attention unnecessarily?
