Chapter 7: World Clock

Śrīla Prabhupāda Uvāca 7
World Clock

April 26, 1973, ISKCON Los Angeles
(An excerpt from a letter)

Since we've come back to Los Angeles, Śrīla Prabhupāda has come into my room a few times and has shown me how to cook some new preparations. The way he comes in, sits down on the floor and directs the activity is very endearing.

The other day, Jayatīrtha gave Śrīla Prabhupāda a desk clock that tells the time of any city in the world with a turn of the dial. Prabhupāda was quite pleased with it and said the man who invented it deserved the $300 it cost for taxing his brain so much.

At this moment there is a famous designer upstairs. He is the man who designs clothes for millionaires all over the world, and he wants to outfit Prabhupāda with an entire wardrobe of clothing. I can't imagine what he can do to make a kurta and dhoti different and still have Śrīla Prabhupāda wear them.
