Giriraj Swami: Srila Prabhupada was on a morning walk with many different types of people, including many devotees. Svarup Damodar Prabhu was there, and Srila Prabhupada discussed scientific matters with him. By chance, my mother and father had come to visit and were also there. Srila Prabhupada said to my mother, who was approaching 60 at the time, “Oh, Mrs. Teton, you look so young.” She was really pleased.
At the end of the walk we came to the parked cars. At the time, Srila Prabhupada was using a Rolls Royce, and he may have noticed that my father was looking at his car. Very shyly and humbly, Srila Prabhupada looked down and said to my father, “My disciples have gotten this for me.” My father immediately said, “Oh, no, no, you deserve it. You deserve it.” Then again, dealing very expertly, Srila Prabhupada said to my father, “So you can come with me. We can ride back together in the car.” My father said, “No, you go with the other disciples.” Afterwards, Hari Sauri, who was Srila Prabhupada’s servant, said to Srila Prabhupada, “Srila Prabhupada, everyone loves you so much.” Srila Prabhupada said, “Yes, because I love everyone.” ~ Prabhupada Memories by Siddhanta Das
