Rama devi dasi Remembers Srila Prabhupada

Following Srila Prabhupada

Interview DVD 03

Rama: We went down early to Marble Arch to help decorate the cart, and Prabhupada arrived. Again, when he stepped out of the car, the devotees just took off, they just left the ground, and there was such incredible joy on everyone’s faces and such a feeling of safety and security being around Prabhupada. He sat on the cart that year, he didn’t dance, and I just stayed by the Rathayatra cart by the rope just in front of Prabhupada’s vyasasana on his right side. I don’t think I ever looked forward in that Rathayatra, I think I just looked at Prabhupada the whole way. I was really fascinated by him because I was still pretty young, I had just turned 17.
