Hari Sauri : In Bombay, on the evening of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura's disappearance day, Prabhupada went down to the temple for a special program including pushpanjali, the offering of flowers to his Guru Maharaja. The audience was not large; a small core of active life members, friends and well-wishers of ISKCON who have become attracted by Srila Prabhupada and his pure and direct preaching, impressed by the results of Krishna consciousness.
Srila Prabhupada sat on a cushion on the floor in front of the Deities and next to the vyasasana, which bore a small picture of his Guru Maharaja. He lectured enthusiastically, showing no sign of discomfort from his illness. It was an especially good talk. He humbly presented the eternal message of devotional service as he has received it from his spiritual master.
