    Dear Prabhus,
    Please accept my humble obeisances All glories to Srila Prabhupada,
    Great story from Hansarupa prabhu.
    I was distributing Prasad at Saint Pauls cathedral when young people done an “ occupation “.
    People were lining up for Prasad, in the corner of my eye I could see a really dirty homeless old guy and I though to myself , please don’t come over here. But sure enough he done the zombie step over to me then requested “ Jai Prabhu , has the food been offered? “ .
    He was a Prabhupada disciple, he couldn’t remember his name that Prabhupada gave him , but he wasn’t an ordinary person.
    So many devotees fall on hard times, even Srila Prabhupada had a son , Priyag, who became homeless.
    There is a verse from the Srimad Bhagavatam that appears to indicate that the Lord may take everything away from his devotee making him “wretched”, and surrendered.
    Tribhuvanath prabhu used to tell me that “comfortable living and Krishna Consciousness don’t go well together”.
    So who knows what the future holds for each of us .
    Your servant
    Parasuram das
