|That's all right. For the time being, if by parikrama, fainting, dying, that is a glorious. That I want. Will it be great burden?|
|Prabhupāda: Another edition.|
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Another?
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: This is the first time this is published. You haven't seen this yet.
Brahmānanda: This is 10.2.
Prabhupāda: Oh, Tenth Canto.
|Prabhupāda: Their aims and object is superficially good, that "We altogether preach." But they do not know the ways.|
Akṣayānanda: Quite right.
Prabhupāda: That is their defect. Neither they'll take up as it is. So it will be failure.
|I am on the deathbed. I may go away at any moment. Then... Now it is up to you to give protection to the sanctity of our institution. Who else is there from the GBC?|
|That is my only request, that at the last stage don't torture me and put to death. So I am not eating anything, and if we chant, by batches chant, I'll hear.|
|Prabhupāda: Sir P. C. Raya.|
Svarūpa Dāmodara: A chemist, Śrīla Prabhupāda?
Svarūpa Dāmodara: Yes. He's the first chemist who started this Bengal Chemical.
Prabhupāda: Hmm. He said first-class food is Marwari, and last class, Madrasi.
|Prabhupāda: And you should pay for that.|
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: No problem.
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Yes. Appreciate. There's no problem for that, Śrīla Prabhupāda.
|Prabhupāda: The Trust deed somebody may read.|
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Oh, yes. I can bring it just now.
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: I can read it to you personally.
Prabhupāda: All right.
|Prabhupāda: ...depend on you. For me, wherever I am kept, I shall remain. This is the position.|
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: What, Śrīla Prabhupāda? Wherever you are kept?
Prabhupāda: Wherever you kept, keep, I shall remain. The institution depends on the GBC.
|Jayapatākā: We do not want to rest until every home in Bengal has a copy of Gītār Gān and Bhāgavatam.|
|Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Śrīkand. That's very good for you, Śrīla Prabhupāda, śrīkand.|
Prabhupāda: Oh, śrīkand.
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: That's a good preparation for you, Śrīla Prabhupāda, very nutritious.
|Pañca-draviḍa: They are doing nicely. They've also brought you some gifts—one sweater and some warm socks and a scarf for the winter here in Vṛndāvana.|
Prabhupāda: So keep it. I shall use it.
|Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Śrīla Prabhupāda? We got some news of some preaching. I was wondering what was a good time to read to you.|
Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Like to hear it, Śrīla Prabhupāda?
|Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Yes, Śrīla Prabhupāda. Śrīla Prabhupāda? Do you want us to give something towards repairing this Caitanya Mahāprabhu Mandir?|
|Lokanātha: We just had a big kīrtana, but I could chant more. I have come a long way to see you and chant for you. So if you allow, I will chant.|
|Haṁsadūta: So we should meet and make a program for going around Vṛndāvana.|
Haṁsadūta: You want to begin tomorrow morning?
|No, no, I cannot put you in anxiety. You have done so much. You have suffered for Māyāpur so much. I cannot put you in anxiety. So I shall do what you like.|
|Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Śrīla Prabhupāda, the way you deal with us simply deepens our attachment every moment.|
Prabhupāda: It is my duty. (laughter).
|Bhavānanda: Also, before he (Prabhupāda) complained of the heaviness, he was feeling very cold, yet so many blankets and quilts, and he threw them all off.|
Prabhupāda: Blood pressure is... Blood pressure.
|Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: I have a picture of it, Śrīla Prabhupāda. I have a picture of that BBT godown.|
Prabhupāda: Show him.
Devotee: It's about two blocks long and about one block high.
