“Because of the no-cutting rule, the grasses were from eight inches to a foot tall. One particular morning, the long grasses were particularly wet from the dew, and it was very foggy. So we were going down a hillock, and Prabhupada was walking a little ahead of me. As I was watching Srila Prabhupada’s feet, I thought, I will step where he walks, as a disciple is thinking to try to walk in the footsteps of the Spiritual Master. All of a sudden it hit me, “There’s no footprints!” It was uncanny because I was the only person there at the time. But it struck me so profoundly, and I turned around and looked, and there were really large, deep impressions where I had walked.

So I stopped and said, “Prabhupada, I am confused; you are walking in front of me, but there are no footprints where you are walking, and where I walk there are footprints. How is that?”

So actually he was quite sober and he said, “That will be revealed to you in time.” But he never gave me an answer. And it still hasn’t been revealed to me, other than that he was from another place — he was a Vaikuntha man.”
