Jayapatākā Swami: Someone told me that whenever I see the spiritual master, I should praise him and humble myself and I should ask for blessings. When I saw Śrīla Prabhupāda I would do that. One time, I said, “Śrīla Prabhupāda, You are very merciful and I am a fool.” He said, “Yes!” Then I told Śrīla Prabhupāda, “I want to serve you life after life.” He said, “Why do you want to make me come back?” I thought, “What did I say wrong?” Then I said, “I want to serve you even life after life!” Meaning if I don’t go back to Godhead, I still want to serve him. Like that I found that Śrīla Prabhupāda, he was a person, he was very personal. And so, his personal quality was something very endearing to me.
