Prabhupada had brought a few things from India. He had brought a trunk with Srimad Bhagavatam except he had it printed in India and he also brought some hand bills – leaflets that were handouts for the general public. It showed the picture of Prabhupada and the maha mantra with al little bit of an explanation. In that picture Prabhupada looked utterly serious. The corners of his mouth totally pointing downwards and in this way Prabhupada looked very very grave. Yadhurani the first female disciple was a painter and therefore she looked at such things like expressions and colours. So immediately she said:

“Oh…oh you must have been very sad at that time?”

Prabhupada said:

“No, this was my moment of greatest ecstasy!”
