A first-class treasurer!

    Posted on April 5, 2014



Русский перевод

H.H. Tamal Krsna Dasa Goswami related that in the early days of ISKCON Los Angeles he was the temple commander and Madhudvisa Prabhu was the treasurer. On weekdays Madhudvisa Prabhu would collect from the devotees the income from sankirtan, but at the weekend, when money was needed for the Sunday festival, he was not to be found. When Tamal Krsna complained about this to Srila Prabhupada, Srila Prabhupada commented, "He is a first-class treasurer. The first qualification of a treasurer is that he does not like to spend money."

(from a TKG lecture)
