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.
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...
