Jayapataka Swami: There are devotees like Sarva Shakti and Guru Mangal who associate a lot with me. But sometimes devotees do not get enough association. You should hear from them about Srila Prabhupada. Srila Prabhupada would go to Mayapur at least twice a year. Once during Gaura Purnima a lot of devotees came. He also came in the month of Damodar, and would stay for about one and a half months. Normally, he would stay in Vrndavana during the month of Damodar and would stay here after for six weeks. Once during the rainy season, there were millions of insects which were hovering around the lights and Srila Prabhupada was watching them intently. The devotees were wondering why Srila Prabhupada was looking at them. He was looking at the insects and they were waiting for Srila Prabhupada to say something. Srila Prabhupada said ‘in the airports there is radars and other equipment but sometimes even then there are accidents and I see here that there are so many insects and they are all flying around without hitting one another in an organized way and there is no radar or any equipment here and no accidents.’ There was always a special occasion with Srila Prabhupada.
