From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada



680506R1-BOSTON - May 06, 1968 - 09:51 Minutes



Prabhupāda: When the result of the karma is offered to God, then it is karma-yoga.

Satsvarūpa: Swāmījī? Can I make an announcement? Swāmījī has said there are fifty important pilgrimage cities in India, but as far as we're concerned here, it's whatever city His Divine Grace is residing in. So right now it's Boston. And he will stay here so long as it's the best place to spread Kṛṣṇa consciousness.

So you have some taste for it. You can help us to keep Boston this city of pilgrimage. We need engagements for Swāmījī. The universities will be closing . . . well, some of them are almost already closed. But if you have any access to a nice engagement, a church or a club where people attend, please approach us and help us to spread in this way.

Also we have a Love Feast here in the temple every Sunday at noon, and this is very sumptuous bhakti-yoga Love Feast, with Indian delicacies that you'll certainly enjoy. So approach this way. We'll take collections at this time also. You can help us very solidly by putting in all that you can.

Our next kīrtana is scheduled for Wednesday–Monday, Wednesday and Friday—but it won't be, because it will be held at MIT instead, in the student mezzanine lounge in the third floor at eight.

Prabhupāda: Wednesday there will be no meeting here?

Satsvarūpa: Yes, there'll be no kīrtana. That's the next engagement, May 8th. Also, does anyone have a car? Swāmījī lives nine blocks away.

Prabhupāda: You have got your car? Thank you.

I'm here since 1965 . . . (indistinct) . . . again I come back . . . (indistinct)

Satsvarūpa: If you would like to stay we are going to have some personality . . . (indistinct) . . . you may remain very welcome.

(background talking)

Prabhupāda: It is stated in the Bhagavad-gītā who can . . . (indistinct) . . . commented . . . (indistinct) . . . just like you are medical man. You are authorized by the state college to practise . . . (indistinct) . . . is that nice? Without going to special college without any training. So who will accept? This is going on. One who is not authorized he is commenting on . . . (indistinct)

Devotee: Swami, if this is senseless talk and it disturbs the tranquility of the āśrama then it shouldn't be, be stressed.

Prabhupāda: Calculative . . . why it will disturb you? . . . (indistinct) . . . to understand this perhaps argument. There is no discussion. We talk with you on the basis of . . . (indistinct) . . . little then why are we discussing? No. We put everything for accepting with judgement not blindly . . .(indistinct) . . . (cut) (end)
