A long cherished dream

Hari Sauri: In New York, July of 1976, Accepting Tamal Krishna Maharaja's invitation, Prabhupada decided to spend a day at the Pennsylvania farm, a five-hour drive away. Fulfilling what he said was "a long cherished dream," Prabhupada traveled there on one of the Radha-Damodara buses. Devotees set up the seat from his sitting room in the center of the open floor, against the wall to the right of the altar.
 
Tamal Krishna Goswami, Pushta Krishna Swami, Bali-mardana, Adi-kesava Swami, Tripurari Swami and Chayavana Swami gathered at his feet. Bus manager Mahamuni dasa and driver Vakresvara Pandita dasa sat in the front cab. We sped down the highway at seventy miles per hour, while Prabhupada held his usual morning program. Everyone took out their song books and turned to page eighty-six, and as we sat before the Deities of Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai, Srila Prabhupada sang one of his favorite bhajanas, Locana dasa Thakura's Sri Sri Gaura Nityanandera Daya: The Mercy of Sri Gaura and Nityananda.
