Memory of the Day



Giriraj Swami : Although Juhu had some opulent hotels, it was originally just a fishing village and there were many poor people who lived in the area; and their children would come to the evening programs and join the chanting and dancing and, of course, they would take prasad from Srila Prabhupada’s hand at the end of the arati. But Srila Prabhupada was concerned about them and he actually said that we should keep bins, one for clothing and one for food grains, and we should give the clothing to the poor children and give them prasad. In this way, Srila Prabhupada wanted to take care of them as young devotees of Krishna.
