My Dear Gopijanavallabha dasa:

We have got a friend in London, perhaps you know his name, George Harrison. His house is a palatial building--he is a very rich man--but the former owner of the house is living there as ghost. This is practical. He was very rich man, the owner of the house, former owner of the house, and he invented so many things, so he got enough money and he was too much attached to the palace. The whole money he acquired, he constructed that house. Now after death, due to his too much attachment to that house, he is living there as a ghost. This is possible. Not only as ghost, but sometimes as rat, as cat, as a snake—this is the law of nature. If you have got too much attachment for this material world, then you will have to come back again, and according to your karma you have to accept a body.

Sannyasi should go on preaching, preaching, preaching, preaching. Practically, I was sitting here in Vrndavana, in Radha-Damodara temple. So at the age of seventy years, nobody goes out. At least from Vrndavana nobody goes at the age of seventy years. But Krsna asked me. I thought that I must go, Guru Maharaja wanted it, Caitanya Mahaprabhu... Let me try. So if I had not gone then this institution would not have developed. So this is practical. Mahatah nirvicaranam. Mahatma, they must move. So when there is absolute necessity they may stay. Otherwise, they must move. Move on, move on, move on, move on, move on. No staying. That is principle. No staying. I am this old age, I cannot move... My... I... So many... Still I am traveling all over the world.

A gentleman in his sixties approached our table and remarked upon looking at the picture of Srila Prabhupada "I know him". When we asked him how, he narrated his amazing story of experience with Prabhupada. He said, "I was a kid when we were traveling on a flight from Japan. This man (Prabhupada) was seated near us on the flight. There were some hippies on the flight who were making too much noise. As a result, the air hostesses were not serving food and drinks and declared that until the hippies quietened, they won't serve anything to anyone. People were getting a bit restless. Suddenly my mom got up and approached this teacher (Prabhupada) and told him in Japanese: 'I know you don't understand what I'm saying but I also know that you can read my mind.

"Actually everything belongs to Krishna, and if He likes, He can immediately give us the whole USA, but He is very cautious because we are prone to the allurement of Maya, so He does not give us all of a sudden all the facilities, lest we may fall prey to the illusory presentations of Maya.
