Hari-śauri: Is that special mercy that they seem to be impoverished?
Hari-śauri: Is that special arrangement that they seem to be impoverished? Say like the villagers, they're not very wealthy, or, uh...
Prabhupāda: That is due to misgovernment. There is no king; all rogues and thieves are in the government. Mismanagement. It is the government duty to see that everyone is doing nicely so that they can live peacefully, happily. There must be direction. Just like parentless children. Nobody is to take care; they'll be wretched. So India's position is like that. The parentless children. There is no good government. And they supply this control wheat that is not even touchable. Unfit for human consumption. There is a worm...
Hari-śauri: Control wheat?
Prabhupāda: Yes. They purchase from here and there all rejected wheat, and they supply it. There is no ghee, no milk, no proper food grain. Everything black market. Any necessary commodity you cannot have in the open market; you have to purchase in black market. Just like for the building purpose, cement. In your country you can purchase any amount of it. You cannot purchase. You have to purchase black market, and that cement also mixed with some... What is that? And unless you give some bribe, it is not possible. (break)
Viśvakarmā: ...for the balcony in the church in the other room? How can we... (announcement being made)
Prabhupāda: ...fit for sitting. That is very nice. And next time when I come the seat should be just Deity altar, so that all balcony can see.
Viśvakarmā: Seat should be?
Prabhupāda: My seat should be near the altar of the Deity.
Hari-śauri: The vyāsāsana. Like in Los Angeles, at the side? On the left-hand side?
Prabhupāda: Not left-hand side. Just like you are facing Deity and there are spaces here.
Viśvakarmā: Between the doors.
Viśvakarmā: Which side, Śrīla Prabhupāda? On the left-hand side or the right-hand side of the Deity, facing towards the altar?
Prabhupāda: Any side.
Viśvakarmā: Any side? How far away from the front? In the middle so that they can see from the balcony as well. (child calls out)
Prabhupāda: Yes. Prabhupāda?
Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: Sounded like it.
Hari-śauri: Sounded like it. I don't think it could have been though. Not a devotee.
Prabhupāda: Child is...
Devotee: Could be Buffalo.
Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: No, it's not. I see the child.
Devotee: He'll have the same benediction as Ajāmila. (child calls out "Prabhupāda")
Prabhupāda: He knows me. (break)
Devotee: Should there be a canopy over top of the vyāsāsana?
Prabhupāda: No, no canopy. (break) ...to fly to our New Vrindaban? How long it takes?
Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: I asked Kīrtanānanda. He said about one hour, twenty, twenty-five minutes. (break—new sequence in car)
Prabhupāda: Let us see what is the reception. (break) We have come from a different way. From Buffalo.
