Govinda : Each morning at the end of class in the Frederick Street temple, Srila Prabhupada would ask for relevant questions. One morning I wanted to hear the story of Lord Chaitanya falling in the water, but I was shy about asking since it wasn't relevant to the class. I raised my hand anyway and said, "Could you please tell the story about Lord Chaitanya falling into the water?" Prabhupada became totally quiet for about five minutes. I thought, "What have I done wrong now?" I didn't know what was going on and I was worried. Then he said, "Yes," and told the story of Lord Chaitanya falling in the water. Afterwards, the devotees said, "Didn't you see? There were tears running down his face. He was in complete ecstasy." I marveled at that. I began to see that when his Western children, we were just like children to him asked about Lord Chaitanya it gave him great pleasure, great joy.
