Gift for Srila PrabhupadaMany devotees had made or purchased gifts for Srila Prabhupada. Madhudvisa announced at the feast after the ceremony that devotees could go up to Prabhupada's room to present their offerings.Citralekha presented a special gift to Srila Prabhupada -- a golden locket. Prabhupada opened it and looked inside. "Oh, what is this?""That's a picture of your spiritual master, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati on one side, and on the other is some cotton from Srila Rupa Gosvami's quilt in Vrndavana."Prabhupada expressed his appreciation: "Oh, thank you very much. Very nice."One by one the devotees entered the room, offered their obeisances and gifts, stayed a short while, then filed out.- From "The Great Transcendental Adventure" by HG Kurma Prabhu
