Hari Sauri: Arriving back at the temple, Srila Prabhupada accepted Satsvarupa Maharaja's invitation to visit his mobile temple. Satsvarupa informed Prabhupada that they also have another five vans, three of which the Library Party use for their college and university preaching, and the other two are for fund raising to support the Library Party devotees. Altogether he has about twenty men on his program, including the newly joined Eugene, the ex-priest from Los Angeles. He moves from city to city visiting temples and devotees in his GBC zone as he does university programs.

Srila Prabhupada stepped inside the twenty-eight foot long caravan-style vehicle. He sat for a few minutes on a cushion on a raised portion just behind the driver's seat as Satsvarupa Maharaja informed him of its facilities. The van is complete with a shower, toilet and kitchen and has racks for Srila Prabhupada's books and tapes. Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai were installed less than a month ago.

The pujari opened the altar curtains to reveal Their Lordships and Srila Prabhupada immediately offered his full prostrated obeisances, much to everyone's surprise and pleasure. In three minutes the visit was over, and accompanied by a lively kirtana party Prabhupada entered the temple for the rest of the morning program.
