"I would keep Hare Krsna magazines and booklets inside my big fat chemistry books and read them for hours. My roommates would marvel at how seriously I was studying chemistry. They couldn't detect that instead of absorbing myself in analyzing chemical solutions, I was probing into the ultimate solution to the problems of life." __HH Lokanatha Swami Maharaja

Srila Prabhupada completed his lecture and it was time for questions and answers:

One serious man asks with serious voice: What is the last and main instruction of Krishna in Bgahavad Gita?

Srila Prabhupada right after the question: "You rascal, surrender to Me!" Yes, it is the summum bonnum of Bhagavad Gita. You are a rascal and You should surrender to  Krishna.


everyone laughs including Srila Prabhupada :D

Srila Prabhupada in the lecture of Chaitanya Charitaamrita in Mumbai:

So these scientists say that stool is very rich for micro elements. They glorify it so much. A stool! As if they tasted it.



everyone in the class laughs Srila Prabhupada also laughs with compassion. 

Srila Prabhupada: ..."Hastinapur" means the land of elephants. So those days there were many elephants in that city so they called it as "Harstinapur". As like Goloka. Go means cow...But these days people do not have enough wealth to keep cows, horse, because of that they take Motor cars...In this way we can call the city as "Motor car pur"

Everyone laughed. :D

Srila Prabhupada: If one studies all 9 Cantoes of Srimad Bhagavatam that becomes a self realized soul.

Bhakta B: so Prabhupada, You are teaching now Canto 12 so are You self realized soul?

Srila Prabhupada: Yes, I am an idiot.

(From the lecture of HG Urmila Mataji)

If one has good wife then he is fortunate.

But if one has bad wife then he becomes a philosopher. 

So no loss. (Sokrat)

Bhakta Burfi was very enthusiastic to distribute Prabhupada's books in deepest darkest Africa. While out on Sankirtana, he crossed paths with a full-grown lion. Backing away from the man-eating beast, he began to pray in earnest to Lord Nrisimhadeva. "Dearest Lord, king of all lions, you know the nature of this beast, please make him a devotee."

Unfortunately, the prayer was to no avail. The lion moved closer, licking its lips hungrily. Again he prayed, even more desperately, "Please Lord, You know the nature of this lion. I beg you, make him a devotee!" But the lion continued to stalk him, salivating at the mouth. Finally he cried out in terror, "Oh Lord Nrsimha, You are omnipotent, and You know the nature of this creature, please, please, make him a devotee." Then just when he thought that all was lost, the hungry lion stopped in his tracks, lay down peacefully and said: "Maha-prasadam Govinda..."
