Pranada dasi : Srila Prabhupada decided to see the new movie that Visakha and Yadubara prabhu made called "Spiritual Frontier" about New Vrindavan, and Kirtanananda Swami flew out to look at that movie with him. So one evening it was being shown in the temple room. Prabhupada sat on his vyasasan, and we proceeded to view this wonderful movie of the New Vrindavan community and what was happening there. Prabhupada liked it very much. About midway there was a close-up of a wok with a puri being cooked and it puffed up, and Prabhupada leaned over to Tamal Krishna Maharaja and said, "I would like one of those puris." But then at the end of the movie he was glorifying Kirtanananda Swami and the work that he had been doing in New Vrindavan, and he was so pleased he said, "I bless Kirtanananda Swami to go back to Godhead in this life," and all the devotees broke out in this cheer. Then in his magnanimity and his big heart he said, "What Kirtanananda?" And he took his right hand and he placed it in the direction of Kirtanananda, which was the corner on the left, and then he started sweeping it across the heads of all the devotees in the temple room and he said, "I bless all of you to go back to Godhead." Then as his hand was moving, I remember feeling like, "Oh, Srila Prabhupada, please make sure your hand comes all the way this way," because it was all the way to the far right up in the balcony. And he did, it was a majestic movement blessing all these devotees back to Godhead, and we all just broke into this huge cheer, "Jaya Srila Prabhupada!" We were assured to definitely go back to Godhead by the mercy of the pure devotee.
