Tape Section 4 "Is the poison in the milk?" (10:02)
Jayapataka: We heard that Your Divine Grace had a dream that a kaviraja of the Ramanuja-sampradaya would treat you and bring you back to strength, and this kaviraja says that in a very short time, following the treatment, you would regain your strength. Although he hasn't got all of the medicines yet, but within a day or two they'll all be prepared, and he says within fifteen days you should be quite improved in strength. So far, he seems to have been quite sincere.
Prabhupada: No, no, he's sincere. I'll drink milk. Whatever strength is obtainable, there will be.
Jayapataka: Like to follow the same treatment, only while travelling.
"Devotee 1": (snigger) Is the poison in the milk? (whispered)
"Devotee 2": Mh hhm (affirmitive)
"Devotee 1": Oh (I see)
Hamsaduta: So we should meet and make a program for going around Vrndavana.
Hamsaduta: You want to begin tomorrow morning?
Devotee: If Prabhupada travels in a van it would be very bumpy. He should have a big bus.
Hamsaduta: Let's discuss it.
Devotee: A big bus.
Prabhupada: No, no, bus will be not good. Bullock cart.
Bhavananda: Bullock cart.
Jayapataka: That is very bumpy.
Bhavananda: Your Guru Maharaja used to have bullock cart travel from Hulorghat [on the bank of the Ganges in Mayapura] up to the Caitanya Matha. You told me you put a nice mattress down in the back and a cover, and you lay down there. You even told me once to go to Calcutta that way. You lay down, at night; you go little bit, little bit; and in the morning, when you wake up, you're in Calcutta. (pause)
Prabhupada: Bullock, you get the cow dung.
Tamala Krsna: Cook with it.
Jayapataka: In this part of India it's very cold now ("devotee" laughs) for Your Divine Grace.
Prabhupada: Underneath the tree it is not cold. ("devotees" snigger)
Tamala Krsna: You sound like you are very determined to go, Srila Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: Daytime we expose in the sunshine, ("devotee" laughs) and...
"Devotee ?": Do it now (whispered).
Prabhupada: ...camp underneath a tree at night. That has to be arranged.
(Bengali with Bhakti-caru—Prabhupada drinks something a few times & seems disturbed) (pause)
Tamala Krsna: Srila Prabhupada, should the devotees take prasadam now?
Prabhupada: Oh, yes.
Tamala Krsna: It's about 1:30 now. After taking prasadam we can meet and chalk out a program for parikrama and tirtha-yatra. Is that all right? Okay.
Prabhupada: I thought you have taken.
Tamala Krsna: No, we were all surrounding you, listening very intently to all your instructions.
Jagadisa: Prasadam has been saved for the devotees that are here.
Tamala Krsna: Three o'clock we'll meet. So we'll have our meeting, Srila Prabhupada, with Lokanatha also present.
Jagadisa: Satsvarupa also.
Prabhupada: Four o'clock.
Tamala Krsna: Hm? Yes. And then we'll begin tomorrow. Is that soon enough?
Prabhupada: Yes. Hm.
Tamala Krsna: Should we depart for taking prasadam now, Srila Prabhupada?
Tamala Krsna: Okay.
Prabhupada: Who is attending (me)?
Prabhupada: Upendra is very good attendant.
