"We are entering Prabhupada’s fourth week at New Vrindaban. He is looking robust and is enjoying himself immensely.  now, he walks down Aghasura Road to the spring and often takes a little fresh water in his hand and sips it.


He comments on everything: the birds, flowers, fence, pasture, buildings. Nothing is too insignificant to escape his attention. He even inquires about a stray dog.


“Does he have a name?”
“We call him Hare Rama,” I say.
“And how’s that?”
“Because he chants. He can’t say Hare Krishna, but he can say Hare Rama.”


When I coax Hare Rama by chanting “Hare Rama,” he responds, as always, by lowering his head between his paws and making a strange sound that very closely resembles “Hare Ramaramarama.“


“Oh, very good!” Prabhupada laughs. “Even the stray dogs are making nice progress here. That is the potency of a holy dham. In Vrindaban, you will see many dogs running loose in the streets, but when they die, they are liberated. That is a special benediction for those who have committed offenses in Vrindaban. They receive one life as a dog or hog in Vrindaban. Then liberation.”...
