Allen Ginsberg: Commencement. The graduation.
Prabhupāda: In some lecture he said that, "I want to meet some religious heads." And so one of my girl student in San Francisco, she is very educated. She wrote one letter to Nixon. And I have got the copy that, "Swāmījī is spreading this Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement. It is being appreciated by the younger section. So Swāmījī will be glad to see you if you make some appointment." But he never replied.
Allen Ginsberg: Well, this university he chose because it's supposed to be typical of America. So if in this typical university the young people greet him by chanting Hare Kṛṣṇa, then he may well invite you.
Prabhupāda: (laughs) No. I came here with this idea, that in America they are in need of these things, and they are wanting something substantial. So if some facility is given . . . of course, I am doing my bit as far as possible. But if some organized things are done like government help or people help, then this movement can be pushed further nicely. Otherwise, slowly it will go on, as Kṛṣṇa desires.
Hayagrīva: Mr. Ginsberg said he also chanted Hare Kṛṣṇa for Robert Kennedy before he died.
Allen Ginsberg: I think I told you about that, didn't I?
Prabhupāda: Yes. You told me in San Francisco. Yes.
Allen Ginsberg: So he heard two rounds of it. Okay. I have to take a plane today to a Catholic college in New York State. I'll be going back to New York at one o'clock, so I have to go back and pack and say good-bye to the students. It was a pleasure to see you here. Lovely. So maybe we'll do it again in New York.
