Using everything for Krishna

Braja-sundari Dasi - November 20, 2009 4:04 pm

From Syamasundara Prabhu`s memories- Prabhupada`s visit to Moscow:


"After that I went off again in search of groceries. I discovered that everywhere yogurt, buttermilk, and milk were being sold, but there were almost no vegetables and absolutely no fruits. In the end, I was able to buy 2 kilograms of relatively decent North Korean rice. Then Srila Prabhupada said, “Let’s prepare a great amount of sweet rice. At least we won’t die of hunger.” We made so much sweet rice that we had nowhere to store it. For this reason, Prabhupada told Aravinda, “Bring me my lota.” Aravinda protested, “Srila Prabhupada, you use this lota in the bathroom and restroom…” But Srila Prabhupada said, “For Krishna, one can use anything that has meaning.”
