Towards the end of the walk, the topic of ghosts came up. Prabhupada recalled
his stay as a guest on John Lennon?s estate, Tittenhurst, in 1969.
?In London there are so many ghosts,? he said with a grin, as the devotees
crowded around. ?They complained, ?Sir, here in this house, a ghost comes
every night?, so I advised them to chant Hare Krishna, and the ghost went away.?
Wherever there is Hare Krishna chanting, Prabhupada said, the ghostly demonic
living entities will not be able to stay but rather will be forced to leave.
?Everywhere there are ghostly living beings. In fact,? he said, ?non-devotees
who show no respect for the pure devotees or the Deity in the temple, are also
considered to be ghosts?although breathing. They are considered dead bodies.?
