I have constituted one governing body as Prabhupāda desired, governing body, but still they are not so experienced


Room Conversation B -- February 13, 1974, Vrndavana:

Dr. Kapoor: Now I think you would be more useful if you took more rest, spend as little as what Hare Kṛṣṇa . . .

Prabhupāda: What? Rest (Bengali: By God's mercy, wherever I go . . . people generally travel so much more.)

Dr. Kapoor: No, even then, (Bengali: Travelling is always strenuous.)

Prabhupāda: (Bengali: Yes, travelling is definitely strenuous.)

Dr. Kapoor: Even if you go by plane.

Prabhupāda: Yes.

Dr. Kapoor: That means straight. So if you stay at one place, that's a different kind of life, you see. It's not so strenuous. You move around from place to place . . .

Prabhupāda: But I have got sixty-six branches, so if I do not go some time at least, they also become little depressed.

Dr. Kapoor: That is true, but you'll have to find some way out. You have to . . .

Prabhupāda: I have constituted one Governing Body as Prabhupāda desired, Governing Body, but still they are not so experienced. (loud kirtan)

Dr. Kapoor: You would more than happy . . . devote yourself to reading and writing . . . (indistinct) . . . than going about.

Prabhupāda: (Bengali: In Rādhā Dāmodar temple, I used to do only that.)

Dr. Kapoor: Have a small center here in Vṛndāvana, and you should make this your permanent place for this. Once or twice you may go here and there.

Prabhupāda: (Bengali: I have bought some land in Māyāpura.)

Dr. Kapoor:(Bengali: Have you bought land in Māyāpura?) Will Vṛndāvana not be more suitable?

Prabhupāda: Vṛndāvana is very suitable, but . . . (Hindi: All the mātājis here, where are you from?

Guest (Indian women): From Delhi.

Prabhupāda: From Delhi . . . ok . . . please take prasādam.)

Guest (Indian man): I am going to inform something. I am pañca-śāstri.

Prabhupāda: Oh.

Guest: I am Vedānti gold medallist. I am gold medallist in Vaiṣṇava śāstra.

Prabhupāda: (Bengali: You can do a lot of service. Why don't you stay with us?)

Guest: If you bless me, I wish to give life.

Prabhupāda: (Bengali: What is your age?)

Guest: Sixty, about sixty. I want to give my life for this religion.

Prabhupāda: Oh, that's good.

Guest: Prabhupāda, let's meet.

Prabhupāda: Oh, you remain with us.

Guest: Practically I am very weak.

Prabhupāda: Mūkaṁ karoti vācālaṁ paṅguṁ laṅghayate (CC Madhya 17.80).

Guest: Now my hope is successful. I have seen you.

Prabhupāda: Bengali: For us, to get a scholar like you is really . . . )

Guest: Hare Kṛṣṇa.

Prabhupāda: (Bengali: Whose disciple are you?)

Guest: (Bengali: I am a disciple of Mādhava Mahāraja.)

Prabhupāda: (Bengali: Oh, so you are a disciple of Mādhava Mahāraja.)

Guest: (Hindi) I am very encouraged to read your book which is written by Prabhupāda.

Prabhupāda: You have seen some of my books?

Guest: Mmm.

Prabhupāda: So you can read.
