FOLLOWING SRILA PRABHUPADA DVD 9 Remembrances: May - July 1975

May 1975:  LAUTOKA, FIJI – Walks, Programs

Madhudvisa das:  Here we have Prabhupada walking with the devotees, and the gentleman to the right of Srila Prabhupada is Vasudeva. At this time he was Deoji Punja, and he was the prime mover of Krishna consciousness in Fiji in those early days. Srila Prabhupada was very affectionate towards Vasudeva and his whole family because here was an Indian gentleman outside of ISKCON, because ISKCON hadn’t been officially established there in the country yet, and he was taking it upon his shoulders to propagate Krishna consciousness. And he had a distinct love for Srila Prabhupada, as you see from his body language.

FOLLOWING SRILA PRABHUPADA DVD 2 Remembrances: July 1970 – March 1971

September – December 1969:  LONDON, ENGLAND – Harinam, Rathayatra (Summer 1970)

Mandakini devi:  That scene is one of the harinam we had daily going down Tottenham Court Road, and actually harinam was the life of the temple in Bury Place. It was a very wonderful temple, a very tight family. Actually the father and mother were Gurudas and Jamuna, and they were taking care of us in a very personal way.
