Chapter 8: First Few Days as a Servant

Śrīla Prabhupāda Uvāca 8:
First Few Days as a Servant

September 12, 1972, ISKCON Dallas
(An excerpt from a Letter)

These last few days have been the most wonderful days I have had in Kṛṣṇa Consciousness, despite the fact that I don't know what I am doing. I have given Śrīla Prabhupāda three massages and after each one his only comment was, "Thank you very much."

Yesterday he came into the kitchen and showed me how to prepare his lunch in the cooker. He made dahl and vegetables using the same chaunce and showed me how to roll chapatis without a rolling pin. He said they are better that way—if you can do it.

Today, he again cooked his lunch for my benefit. He made three vegetables, dahl, and rice. I made the chapatis. He told me that in the mornings he desired a little fruit with milk and fruit in the late afternoon—nothing more. He stressed the fact that he only wants small portions on his plate.
