Prabhupāda: What is this maker, the trademark?

Gargamuni: Concord.

Prabhupāda: Concord, yes. Concord is famous tape record company.

It is all right?

Yamunā: Oh, yes, Swāmījī. It can also . . . it can be an amplification system.

Gargamuni: See, if you talk . . .

Yamunā: The thing is, they're too close to one another so there's a feedback. You have to be twelve feet away. Then it will amplify. That's what we were using in all of our speaking engagements.

Gargamuni: Hare Kṛṣṇa. It's like . . . it's an amplifier.

Devotee: Oh!

Prabhupāda: Oh, it acts as amplifier also? So I'll have to speak from here?

Gargamuni: No.

Yamunā: You don't have to . . . if all . . . the two microphones weren't so close, then it would be . . . we wouldn't have this noise, and you could speak as you like to speak.

Prabhupāda: So Gargamuni wants that prayer? Solo? Solo?

Gargamuni: Yes.

Prabhupāda: You also like that?

Yamunā: Oh. If it isn't too much energy, Swāmījī, that would be very beautiful.

Prabhupāda: All right.

Gargamuni: Also, when you used to sing in New York, Vande 'Haṁ, you would add on Cintāmaṇi. Govindam Adi-puruṣaṁ.

Prabhupāda: Yes, sometimes. You shall, I shall . . .? I shall pray that?

Gargamuni: Oh, yes. That's nice, that one.

Yamunā: What does that mean, Swāmījī, that new prayer?

Prabhupāda: Cintāmaṇi . . . that is description of Kṛṣṇaloka.

Yamunā: From the Brahma-saṁhitā?

Gargamuni: Yes.

Prabhupāda: You have?

Yamunā: Yes, I have a copy of it.

Prabhupāda: Sit down? Why do you keep there?

Gargamuni: Well, because . . . so it's not too loud.

Prabhupāda: Oh.
