Vaniquotes - the compiled essence of Vedic knowledge

One time when I was staying in the Krsna-Balarama mandira, I saw a man smoking a bidi in his room. If that happens - in the bedroom - should the managers go and say this is not permitted?

Conversations and Morning Walks

1976 Conversations and Morning Walks

Yes.
Morning Walk -- June 5, 1976, Los Angeles:

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: That is Svarūpa. He does all this.

Prabhupāda: (break) ...avasthiti. When one remains in svarūpa, that is called mukti. (laughter) Svarūpeṇa avasthitiḥ. (break) The best place in Los Angeles for walking.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Wow. This is the best place in Los Angeles for walking.

Prabhupāda: (break) ...still the sea beach is here.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Very clean.

Rādhāvallabha: It was Hṛdayānanda Mahārāja's idea to come here.

Rāmeśvara: We've been planning for some time to prepare one flyer advertising our Vṛndāvana guesthouse, because every year college professors take students to India. They all go to see the Taj Mahal, so they pass through Mathurā, so they can easily stop.

Prabhupāda: Agra they must go. Every foreigner, they go to Agra.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Agra.

Rāmeśvara: So we want to make some propaganda, and Air India will help us distribute it. So the question is, these students and professors, they cannot control their senses from smoking and so on. So do we want to allow them to stay in our guesthouse, because it is certain that they will smoke in their room.

Prabhupāda: That is very difficult thing.

Rāmeśvara: That is the only question, and then if you think it is all right that we still invite them, then we can prepare this flyer.

Prabhupāda: You, first of all you GBC think, then and (act?) Make one room, smoking room, that's all right. Just like a, that kind of restriction is there in the airplane, smoking, not, non. So you keep a room separately, a smoking room.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: One time when I was staying in the Kṛṣṇa-Balarāma mandira, I saw a man smoking a bidi in his room. If that happens—in the bedroomshould the managers go and say this is not permitted?

Prabhupāda: Yes.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: They should. They should go down to the smoking room.

Prabhupāda: "Kindly go to the smoking room."

Devotee: The Deities in Vṛndāvana are in need of paraphernalia, and.... Which is more important, that the Deities get Their paraphernalia, or should the money be used...

Prabhupāda: What is that paraphernalia? Who are asking?

Devotee: Who asked me? I'm asking you which is more important.

Prabhupāda: I'll have to .... If you want to give some money, you transfer to the Bank of America, account number 1606.

Rāmeśvara: The Māyāpur-Vṛndāvana Trust Fund? Oh.

Prabhupāda: Yes. And let me know that "I've transferred so much money."
