Tamala Krsna: As you instruct us, Srila Prabhupada, we will carry out your orders exactly.
Prabhupada: Two things. Visaya chariya. Material motive should be given up, and everything should be engaged for Krsna’s…, whatever favorable. Then it will… [break] … Rsi is doing nice. Who is that Maharaja?
Tamala Krsna: Parivrajakacarya Swami.
Prabhupada: Very nice. Good combination.
Tamala Krsna: He’s been there now, Parivrajakacarya Swami, he’s been there now for, I think, two or three years now. He’s worked pretty faithfully there. He tricks them. In the guise of teaching a little hatha-yoga, then he teaches bhakti.
Prabhupada: That is preaching.
Brahmananda: You also tricked us, Srila Prabhupada, when you came to New York. You were just chanting Hare Krsna and speaking on Bhagavad-gita, and we came and we listened, and then you took everything. You took our lives, took all of our money… (devotees chuckle) We left our families.

My Dear Atreya Rsi das:
Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated November 18, 1974 with enclosed letter about the restaurant. Why you could not come to India? I had wanted you to come to discuss some matters. Bhagavan dasa also wanted you to come.
Anyway I know the people of Tehran they like hatha yoga very much. I understand Parivrajakacarya Swami is teaching a course combining both hatha and bhakti yoga to attract the people. This is a very good idea. Somehow or other inject the bhakti yoga. That will save them from the degradations of sense gratification.
Regarding the restaurant, what kind of restaurant it will be? The people of Iran are very rich and they can supply money for this purpose.
I hope this meets you in good health.
Your ever well wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
Dear Gopal Krishna Prabhu,
Please accept my humble obeisances. I am in receipt of your letter dated 12-12-76.
I have read your whole Letter to: His Divine Grace and the following is an account of His remarks.
About the cox and Kings three day trip to Vrndavana, He said “nice work”. Regarding teaching other kinds of yoga. so that we may advertise an 8 or 9 day course for tourists, Prabhupada liked the idea. He said, “That will be very attractive. Other types of yoga are mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita. We can adopt that. Three or four men I can teach how to do it. Then you’ll be able to attract them. I can teach how to sit down, posture, asana, pranayama, without any difficulty. The yoga system as mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita we can take up , that will be bhakti-yoga, Use one. or two of the big rooms in the Gurukula building. I can teach the teachers how to practice.” You, Sarvabhavana, Dhananjaya and Mahavira were mentioned by Prabhupada as prospective teachers. About the Earthquake conference, Prabhupada said, “That’s nice, very good.
