(HH Kadamba Kanana Swami, 4th March 2012, New York) Lecture: Caitanya-caritāmṛta, Adi-lila 9.37
I really appreciated Srila Prabhupada and all of his qualities…………………………First of all I liked it when Prabhupada liked Charlie Chaplin a lot. I also liked the fact that Prabhupada used to steal money from his mother’s purse, when he was a child. I used to do that too! It made him very human. Alright it’s wonderful that he is a pure devotee and has the Love of God and all these things, but that human side of him, made him into something that I could relate to! Okay then I could take it, and deal with it. So that has been a very important point throughout my life!
