I am going in right now

Gurukripa Dasa: I didn't have much of a favourable opinion of this man. When I came to the top of the steps, he stood there.

And Yasodanandana Swami is a quite intimidating devotee, I mean, he is very strong. He had very broad shoulders and very learned person, too bad he is not with us now, and he could play the drum like nobody for hours.

So he (Satsvarupa) said, "Where are you going?" I said, "I am going in Prabhupada’s room." He said, "No. Prabhupada has his timings and you have to come at nine." I said, "No, I am going in right now." And he said, "No you are not." I said, "Well then you are going down the stairs. I am going in right now." 

I was going to throw him down the stairs, and I was going to just throw him down, he was a skinny fellow. And then the door opened with Srila Prabhupada. Prabhupada said, "Oh, you have come, come in." Then Yasodanandana walked in, then I walked in, and then this Satsvarupa Maharaja, he goes to walk in and I pushed him and said, "He didn't invite you," and I shut the door on his face.
