1. proof that you are a rascal

    Prabhupada: Baddha-jiva, every moment he is under the strict laws of nature. Generally they think that.... They speak also. "I think." Do they not say?

  2. Lagging in our eternal relationship

    Our relationship is eternal. But if somebody lags behind, so in spite of our eternal relationship one may not meet other at the destination.

  4. Srila Prabhupada’s watch would stop

    Once a servant of Srila Prahupada’s confided in me that Srila Prabhupada would sometimes sit very still for long hours if he became disturbed by a disciple writing to request a divorce. Gurudas Prabhu once noted that -- before the days of watches with batteries -- Prabhupada would sit so still that his automatic self-wind Bulova watch would stop.
