Chapter 24: Yamuna Bath

Śrīla Prabhupāda Uvāca 24
Yamuna Bath

October 25, 1972, Rādhā-Dāmodara Temple, Vrndavan, India
(An excerpt from a letter)

During a morning walk along the Yamuna River, Śrīla Prabhupāda asked one of us to get some water. Syamasundara prabhu brought him a handful. Śrīla Prabhupāda sprinkled a few drops on his head and told us to do the same.

"This is as good as bathing in the Yamuna," he said.

While we were at the palace at Keshi-ghata, Śrīla Prabhupāda warned the devotees not to dive into the Yamuna because of the many large turtles in the water that could cause possible injury. Śrīla Prabhupāda is always looking out for our welfare in every way.
