Suci devi dasi Remembers Srila Prabhupada

Following Srila Prabhupada

Interview DVD 09

Suci: Prabhupada had an accident in Mauritius, and he’d injured his leg. I heard he liked yellow roses, so I picked a yellow rose and gave it to him. So on his morning walk, he was smelling the rose all the way to the park and when he was sitting in the park and all the way back again. Prabhupada was sitting in a gazebo in the park, and I remember when the sun came up Prabhupada looked so beautiful sitting there with the sun coming up behind him. That was really nice. Prabhupada was sitting in the airport waiting to take his flight, and a few of us were sitting around him. There was a German couple and they had a little baby, and the baby started to crawl towards Prabhupada’s feet. Prabhupada had slippers on, and the baby started to suck Prabhupada’s toes. They tried to take him off but Prabhupada said, “No, no, leave him.” So this baby got such mercy, and Prabhupada must have gone on the airplane with wet toes.
