Haṁsadūta: (introduction on tape) The following lectures were recorded in Calcutta, India, starting January 6th, 1970 (sic), following the Surat lectures, preceding lectures some were recorded at Māgh-melā. So these are being inserted under emergency conditions, being copied from Devānanda's tape recorder. And following these lectures we will have the other lectures in sequence from the Māgh-melā. All these lectures are on the story of Ajāmila, from the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam.

Prabhupāda: Without mosquito curtain you cannot sleep.

Devotee (1): No, we can sleep anywhere. But at Advaita Bhavan there's a fair amount of mosquitoes at night. But there's not so many that you can't sleep without mosquito coil burning.

Prabhupāda: Ohh. That's all right. (break)

Devotee (2): ...wild goats, (indistinct).

Prabhupāda: Hmm. (indistinct)

Devotee (2): The rats in Hawaii are not so big as the rats here. They're only about this big, the body.

Prabhupāda: Every house has rats?

Devotee (2): Not every house. No.

Prabhupāda: At least Advaita Bhavan has got.

Devotee (2): They were some, but they cleaned them out. They got rid of them. I'm not sure that's actually are rat poison.

Devotee (3): (indistinct conversation between devotees)

Devotee (2): We were getting a cow, but we joined with ISKCON just before we got the cow. We were going to get one for four hundred dollars. It was giving sixteen quarts a day and had a calf.

Prabhupāda: Sixteen quarts?

Devotee (2): A day, yes. There was a small calf also.

Prabhupāda: There must be grazing ground for cows.

Devotee (2): Yes.

Prabhupāda: Then there is no problem.

Devotee (2): There was a grazing ground. The lawn would grow. (indistinct)

Prabhupāda: What is that? A recording?

Devotee (2): Little.

Prabhupāda: Why? These are not important thing.

Devotee (2): True. (end)
