Did you ask the Swami what that bubble is?

Umapati Swami : Hayagriva and I were looking at the dust cover of the Srimad-Bhagavatam that Prabhupada had brought from India. It's a painting of the material and spiritual world with a big lotus and many bubbles. There was one bubble we both liked. We said, "This is nice!""Wow! Far out!""That's where I want to go.""That really looks great." Hayagriva was on his way to the temple and I had something else to do so I said. "Ask the Swami what that bubble is." That afternoon I said, "Did you ask the Swami what that bubble is?" Hayagriva said, "Yeah, he said its the material world."
