1. Srila Prabhupada’s prayer

    We were in Detroit at the newly acquired Fisher mansion, probably the finest, most luxurious property that ISKCON ever has or will acquire: beautiful marble floors, pillars, everywhere like a palace out of the Arabian Nights. That night, after the day’s activities, a couple of us were sitting with His Divine Grace by his desk. Srila Prabhupada looked at us very seriously and expressed his gratitude that by the grace of Krsna we were supplied such a facility. He ended by very gravely saying that “I pray to Krsna every night that I may not fall down.” He then stood up and without another word, entered his bedroom to take rest.
