1977 Conversations and Morning Walks

Kṛṣṇa has given you very nice occupation, translation work, and you are earning your livelihood independently. So do it very nicely. And if there is strain to work, then don't work. We shall pay you for the rent, etcetera. It doesn't matter. But you must maintain your status of translating work. That is very good. If you can work, you can work. Otherwise, don't work.

Prabhupāda: Because that stool and urine is also useful. Cow is so important. They'll eat and they'll pass stool and urine. That is also important. If they supply milk, it is well, very good. Otherwise the stool and urine is also important. From that point of view we should give protection. So they are doing this cow slaughter business. (aside, as someone gives something:) Hare Krsna. Therefore they are suffering so much. So Kṛṣṇa has given you very nice occupation, translation work, and you are earning your livelihood independently. So do it very nicely. And if there is strain to work, then don't work. We shall pay you for the rent, etcetera. It doesn't matter. But you must maintain your status of translating work. That is very good. If you can work, you can work. Otherwise, don't work.

Bali-mardana: Just like we were paying Hayagrīva something just to maintain to edit, so he could edit. And if he wants to just translate, then we can give him something.

Prabhupāda: Yes. Hayagrīva wife has come? No.

Rāmeśvara: No, she has left.

Prabhupāda: Then what is his maintaining? (laughter)

Rāmeśvara: That is... He is deviating a little.

Prabhupāda: Huh?

Rāmeśvara: He's enjoying a little bit the senses.

Prabhupāda: So that is not very good idea.

Rāmeśvara: He's got one son. He has his boy.

Prabhupāda: Oh.

Rāmeśvara: He has got the older boy. His wife has got the younger boy.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: I was in New Vrindaban. That boy was staying with Kīrtanānanda Mahārāja.

Trivikrama: Sāmba.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Sāmba.

Rāmeśvara: He comes to the temple once or twice a month.

Prabhupāda: What you have to pay?

Rāmeśvara: Five hundred dollars a month. Pays for rent and gas and food.

Prabhupāda: He pays from that five hundred. Hmm. But he is very slow nowadays in editing.

Rāmeśvara: He finished editing the Kapila book, and he finished the first volume of the philosophy book since he last saw you.

Prabhupāda: Hmm. Do whatever you think is good.
