On his return from the program, Prabhupada entered the temple, bowed down before Radha-Gopinatha, then stood, palms together respectfully in traditional Indian greeting. The lone brahmacari pujari, absorbed in singing and offering the late evening arati was blissfully unaware that Prabhupada was standing right behind him.
Afterwards, Prabhupada asked, "Who was that?"
"That was Kurma dasa, Srila Prabhupada."
