Presentation Excerpt — July 23, 1973, London

Guild member: …here are made of a very inferior metal, in fact in lead. But we couldn’t think anything better than having this badge made for you in solid gold, twenty-four carat. And hereby we present it on behalf of the members of the Guild to you, our most beloved leader.

Prabhupāda: Thank you very much.

Devotees: Haribol, haribol! [applause]

Prabhupāda: So?

Devotees: All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda.

Prabhupāda: How it is to be used?

Guild member: Just like this, m’Lord. Has a pin on it.

Prabhupāda: Oh, I see. Thank you.

Hmm.

[aside:] Betiye, saheb. Idara chair ne. [Hindi]

Devotee: [quietly to Prabhupāda] Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, First Canto, first volume.

Prabhupāda: Hmm.

Devotee: [indistinct] Part One. Part One.

Prabhupāda: This is Part One?

Devotee: Yes.

Prabhupāda: Betiye. [end]
