Oh yes... Kṛṣṇa Book.
Room Conversation with Sanskrit Professor, Dr. Suneson -- September 5, 1973, Stockholm:

Professor: Have you translated also the Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu?

Prabhupāda: Oh yes.

Professor: All of it...? Or...

Prabhupāda: Yes, all of it. Nectar of Devotion.

Paramahaṁsa: Do you have, Nectar of Devotion?

Professor: And also this Ujjvala-nīlamaṇi.

Prabhupāda: Eh?

Professor: Ujjvala-nīlamaṇi?

Prabhupāda: Ujjvala-nīlamaṇi. No, Ujjvala-nīlamaṇi is not for general study.

Professor: No, it's...

Prabhupāda: It is, it is for high, advanced devotee. You have seen our Bhagavad-gītā?

Professor: Yes.

Prabhupāda: Just down. You can see.

Paramahaṁsa: Dr. Suneson is also a friend of Dr. Bernhart and Dr. Stahl, Prof. Stahl in Berkeley.

Prabhupāda: Oh.

Professor: Bernhardt, I know, I know...

Professor: Hm, hm.

Professor: Hm, hm. This one.

Prabhupāda: Nectar of Devotion. This is Caitanya-caritā..., I mean to say, Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu. Yes. "The summary study of Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī's Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu."

Professor: Hm, hm? So it's the complete text?

Prabhupāda: Yes. Complete. You can read from any portion; you'll find so nice description. Anywhere from, you can read. Yes.

Professor: But original text is not given.

Prabhupāda: Then it will be very big volume. Therefore we have given summary study. But if time we get, we shall give the original text also. (break)

Prabhupāda: Yes. Jīva Gosvāmī.

Professor: Yes, also his books are very long.

Professor: Also Gopāla-campū.

Prabhupāda: Gopāla-campū, yes, not yet done.

Professor: No. That's what I have.

Prabhupāda: Eh?

Professor: I've read part of that.

Prabhupāda: Oh. I see.

Professor: Gopāla-campū.

Prabhupāda: Then you have read many of our Vaiṣṇava literatures.

Professor: Yes.

Prabhupāda: Yes, that's nice.

Professor: Also in Tamil. I'm partic... I'm doing also comparative studies between those in the Sanskrit and Tamil. Do you know Tamil?

Prabhupāda: No.

Professor: No. They also have a big collection.

Professor: Which? Here. Or...?
