Guru-gaurāṅga: Do you have any questions about the ceremony that you saw this morning?
Anna Conan Doyle: Yes. I wanted to know what was that, the meaning of that mark you made...
Bhagavān: Oh, from the fire.
Anna Conan Doyle: The fire, yes. Yes, oil and... Was it a third eye?
Anna Conan Doyle: That means you are dust and you become dust again, or what?
Prabhupāda: No, we attended the ceremony. (laughter)
Bhagavān: It is a souvenir of the ceremony.
Prabhupāda: You were not marked because you did not attend the ceremony.
Anna Conan Doyle: I see. It's just a sign. It has no particular meaning.
Prabhupāda: No, this is the general meaning. And this is blessing. After, after the ceremony, if there is any blessing, you get the blessing. Yes.
Guru-gaurāṅga: It's a nicer kind of souvenir than the kind you find in Paris.
Anna Conan Doyle: Exactly, (indistinct) to my eye.
Prabhupāda: Just like nowadays, voting, the man who goes to put his vote, he's marked with a star here. You know that? That means he cannot come again. He cannot represent a false voter. Like that.
