Brave Prabhupada

    Posted on April 20, 2017

Brahmananda: ...Calcutta, on the Maidan, there's that big building, that big memorial. Is that...

Prabhupada: Oh, Victoria Memorial.

Brahmananda: That was built for the king when he was coming?

Prabhupada: No, that was built in memory of Victoria. It was done imitating the Taj Mahal. It took twenty years. Sir Rajendra Nath Mukherjee of Martin Company, he took the contract. And after finishing, he got this title "Sir." And when it was being constructed, I went to the top by crossing the scaffolding.

Brahmananda: So you must have been very brave.

Prabhupada: Yes, I am still brave. [laughter] Otherwise how could I come alone to preach Krsna consciousness? I am still brave.

Devotees: Jaya, Srila Prabhupada!

Prabhupada: Some astrologer told that "This boy, for executing his purpose, he will enter into the fire." Yes. [break] ...recently, in our Bombay affair, it was fight with the fire. Is it not?

Brahmananda: Yes. Oh, yes.

Prabhupada: And we have come out victorious.

Brahmananda: Yes. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
