1974 Conversations and Morning Walks

Yes, yes.
Morning Walk -- January 19, 1974, Hawaii:

Prabhupāda: ...purchase that Kṛṣṇa, and when he'll ask this man to "Give me that Kṛṣṇa book, let me read," this "Kṛṣṇa" will give him some benefit, his calling "Kṛṣṇa Book."

Kṛṣṇa-caitanya: Just by saying "Kṛṣṇa Book," he makes spiritual advancement?

Prabhupāda: Yes, yes. (japa) (break) ...say, "Give me Kṛṣṇa Book." They say like that? Eh?

Devotee (1): Last night a boy came up and asked, "How much are those books?" and he wanted to purchase one. It was very nice.

Devotee (2): Prabhupāda, one time we went to a shopping center and I was walking down the sidewalk and a boy came running up to me and he said, "Is that Volume Two?" And he said, "Can I have Volume Two?" He said, "I've almost finished Volume One, and I was in so much anxiety that I was going to not have anything else to read, because they're so beautiful." And he said that he works in a candy store, and he has so much anxiety all day from all the people that just give him problems and he doesn't like the work and he doesn't like the people. But he says that lunch time he goes and every day he reads the Kṛṣṇa Book and he says he comes back feeling so high. (break)

Praghoṣa: ...so he came up and he asked me to look into, if I could show him the Kṛṣṇa Book for a second. And he had two friends with him and he said, "Here I would like to show you boys something," and he said, "Do you mind?" And I said, "No." So I handed him the Volume One and he opened it up to that picture of Kṛṣṇa with Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī playing His flute, and he showed the boy and he said, "Look, isn't He beautiful?" Just like that, and they both looked at Kṛṣṇa and said, "Wow," just like that. (laughter)

Prabhupāda: Yes, the very picture is attractive, Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa. (japa) (break)
