(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Finland, 2011)

Srila Prabhupada had created quite an elaborate support structure. He created a network of temples around the world! In 1966 he created the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.

There was a program in the ‘Matchless Gifts’ storefront, and suddenly, one man in a suit (who was also there) stood up and Prabhupada introduced him as a lawyer. The lawyer had a document for starting the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. They needed some volunteers to sign all the documents. So everyone was looking and thinking:

“What is this?”

I mean they were all hippies and were looking at the lawyer and thinking:

“What is all this….a lawyer…..a document….and a society?”

But Prabhupada really wanted it. So okay there were a few that volunteered to sign. Prabhupada’s society was a fact. Since that time we have found that many devotees have faithfully taken up service in Prabhupada’s institution, and they also faithfully worked to maintain, Prabhupada’s institution!
