Mulaprakriti : An old brahmachari told me that for a little while Srila Prabhupada lived in humble conditions in Mathura, writing Easy Journey to Other Planets. One day after this brahmachari and Srila Prabhupada had been preaching, they were sitting together honoring leftover prasadam when some rich visitors came up the stairs. These people looked around and, seeing the dilapidated conditions, they turned and walked back down the stairs. Then Srila Prabhupada turned to the brahmachari and said, “Oh, just look. They are coming up the stairs and all they see is an old man eating a dry chapati. They don’t know what plans Chaitanya Mahaprabhu has for this old man.
