Memories Of Srila Prabhupada
BY CID HUNTER
USA, Nov 23 (VNN) The real nectar for which we are all hankering, the pastimes and instructions of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada, keeps flowing with the new releases of "Memories of Srila Prabhupada" Pt. 30 & 31. Pt. 30 contains a tour of Srila Prabhupada's quarters/museum in Vrndavana and Bombay, India by Daivashakti dasi and Hari dasa respectively. At the end of the tours we are treated by their memories as well as those of Mr. P.L. Sethi who was the building contractor for the Juhu Beach Bombay project.
Pt. 31 gives us the ecstatic stories from Nanda Kishore dasa, Guru Kripa dasa, Vaikunthanatha dasa, Madhavananda dasa, Pariksit dasa, Krsna Kanti dasa, Pavamana dasa and Havi dasa. At a recent premiere in L.A., every devotee commented on how inspired they felt after hearing their stories.

Below are excerpts from each of the videos:
Nanda Kishore dasa
"Perfect Question, Perfect Answer":
In Montreal this man said to Prabhupada, "I can't understand why all these young people are bowing down to you." So Prabhupada answered, "Just as you're thinking, 'they shouldn't bow down,' they're thinking that 'you should bow down.'" Prabhupada said, "This is a democracy is it not? The majority is bowing down." Prabhupada was always perfect like that.
Mr. P.L. Sethi
"Prabhupada the expert engineer":
This area where the temple was to be built is sea area. Every building has pilings which are 35-40 feet below the ground. So I said to Guruji that we must have pilings in this land to build the temple. But Guruji suddenly said, "No pilings are required on our land." After that we called the soil specialists who tested the soil and they also reported that the piling is required. And we also called another engineer who also said that pilings are required. He also discussed it with Guruji. But Guruji said, "No! Pilings are not required on our land." So Guruji said, "You can test the soil by boring machine." So I called one boring walla. Then the boring went five feet. They couldn't pull out the boring tool. Then Guruji said, "You dig the land." And we dug the land and we saw the sand and the stone combined to a very hard stone. Then I called that soil testing engineer and he said, "You could build an 8 story building here. No fear. No danger."
