Satsvarūpa: New Vrindaban? (?) (break)
Bali Mardana: The sea is always moving.
Prabhupāda: (break) ...phoned about, about my going there?
Bali Mardana: To New Vrindaban?
Bali Mardana: Yes, I have told him he is waiting for the date. 'Cause Jayatīrtha, we have not fixed up the flight number yet.
Jayatīrtha: Oh, Haṁsadūta. Yes. Yes, I spoke to him, we spoke to him yesterday morning. (?) (loud waves drown out voices)
Bali Mardana: Atreya Ṛṣi?
Jayatīrtha: Atreya Ṛṣi I have not been able to get through to yet.
Bali Mardana: Do you have his telephone number?
Jayatīrtha: It's his business. (very loud waves in background)
Prabhupāda: You have to take visa for Tehran?
Bali Mardana: (break) ...sanctify the whole world by your footsteps. You are criss-crossing the world.
Prabhupāda: That is stated in the śāstra. Tīrthī-kurvanti tīrthāni svāntaḥ-sthena gadābhṛtā. Because a pure devotee carries Kṛṣṇa within his heart, therefore wherever he goes he makes a holy place. It is said in the śāstra. So not me, but every one of you, if you are pure devotee of Kṛṣṇa, then wherever you'll go, that is a holy place. Tīrthī-kurvanti tīrthāni svāntaḥ... To become sannyāsī means that, that he'll be pure devotee, and wherever he will go, he will purify. That is sannyāsa means. Mahad-vicalaṁ nṛnāṁ gṛhināṁ dīna-cetasām. Mahātmās, they'll travel so that the householders, who are cripple-minded and full of sinful activities, they'll go there and make them purified. This is the idea of sannyāsa. And in the Vedic civilization a brahmacārī and a sannyāsī has open door. There is no restriction. No "Beware of dog." (laughter) But now they are prohibited. I have got practical experience. After my sannyāsa, when I was touring India, so in Ahmedabad, or Baroda, I was entering one man's house. So he was standing on the balcony. (laughter)
Devotee: Saying "Don't come"?
Prabhupāda: "Don't come."
Bali Mardana: The age of Kali is perpetrating itself. (pause)
Prabhupāda: It is not their fault. Because in India a sannyāsī has become a professional beggar. Just change the dress and you can easily eat without any working.
Bali Mardana: And smoke beedies.
Prabhupāda: Everything they do. In our childhood we had a house for rental. There was a man. He was a professional beggar. You see? So other members of the house, they'll go to their office. He'll dress himself just like a sannyāsī and go for begging. (laughter) That was his business. (pause) Here in your country there is no such opportunity, but in India there is good opportunity. If you make a dress of sannyāsī, you can go anywhere, and you'll be respectable. They'll give you for eating.
