Prabhupāda: If you have got the name, so why not reply to each one, with the letter . . .

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Oh, I see.

Prabhupāda: . . . that, "We are intending to make a huge planetarium. If you can help us?"

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Mentioning the Fifth Canto, Bhāgavatam?

Prabhupāda: Exactly to the description of Fifth Canto, we want.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: How will we get their addresses?

Prabhupāda: Hmm? Or I can write to Mr. Chandali.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: There's one thing we could do. I haven't seen the article, but he must have spoken at some institution or some meeting. We can write a letter to the secretary of that institution and meeting, telling them what we intend to do and to forward us a list of the people who attended and their addresses. And in that way we can . . . should . . . of course, I can do it, but do you want us to do it, or should Surabhi's office do it?

Prabhupāda: Surabhi?

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Yes.

Prabhupāda: Why?

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Well, he's already got letters like this, and he's receiving letters from people. He has . . . I don't mind doing it.

Prabhupāda: Surabhi . . . no. I shall deal it personally.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: All right.

Prabhupāda: Otherwise there is chance of being cheated.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Yeah, okay. So then . . .

Prabhupāda: I know what are things, but still, they are specially specialists.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Little confirmation . . .

Prabhupāda: Yes, that's all right. I know everything.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: I think, more than anything, you want confirmation just in case . . . (break)

Prabhupāda: That is my request, that I may remain unconscious . . . (break) . . . kapha-pitta-vāyu.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Conscious, unconscious and . . .

Prabhupāda: Hmm. But never put me in hospital. You can refuse that, "This is our Guru Mahārāja's order." Chant Hare Kṛṣṇa. Bās. Let me die peacefully.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: When Caitanya Mahāprabhu was unconscious, all that His disciples would do is they would chant in His ear.

Prabhupāda: That's all.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: So we'll take that example. Please don't ever doubt that. We will never let them. It will be over my dead body.

Prabhupāda: This is my order. If I become unconscious . . . otherwise . . . A oto sob . . . sob ure gelo. (These also . . . those have flown away.)

Bhakti-caru: Na Srilā Prabhupād, ekdom noy. (No Srilā Prabhupāda not at all.) (end)
