Krishna Is Smiling
(Click to enlarge photo of Radha London-Isvara)

Prabhupāda: How many devotees?

Devotee: We have about 120 devotees.

Prabhupāda: Everyone happy?

Devotee: Yes, they are quite happy, I think, Śrīla Prabhupāda. Of course, they're very distressed to hear about your illness.

Prabhupāda: I am not distressed. Body is.

Devotee: Jaya.

Prabhupāda: Book distribution increasing?

Devotee: Yes, Śrīla Prabhupāda, book distribution is increasing.

Devotee (2): In London they have already doubled what they did last year. Twice as much as last year in London.

Prabhupāda: What about Bury Place?

Devotee: Bury Place we're keeping. They're still trying to get us out, but we are keeping. I don't think that Kṛṣṇa will leave until He wants to leave. (Prabhupāda laughs) We just fixed up His Deity house and generally repaired the place. Now...

Prabhupāda: Kṛṣṇa is smiling. They are trying to drive Him. Kṛṣṇa's smiling. That's all. Go on with your business.

Devotee: Therefore you called Him Rādhā-London-Īśvara.

Prabhupāda: Our London, Bury Place, Deity is very beautiful, smiling.

Devotee (3): There's a picture there, Prabhupāda, on your altar.

Prabhupāda: Hm. That is the first installed...

(Srila Prabhupada Conversation, Vrindavan, May 27, 1977)

Note: Radha London-Isvara were installed by Srila Prabhupada in 1969, They are ISKCON's first full-size Radha-Krishna Deities. When asked who were his favourite Deities, Prabhupada replied on more than one occasion that Sri Sri Radha London-Isvara were the most beautiful.
