Srila Prabhupada to Yogendra Kumar Sharma

Nava Yogendra Swami : Prabhupada said, "What's your name?" I said, "Prabhupada, my name is Yogendra Kumar Sharma." He said, "From today onward you're no longer Yogendra Kumar Sharma, you're Nava Yogendra das." Practically he initiated me at our first meeting and I was very happy. I said, "Prabhupada, when I was young I had my horoscope done, and it mentioned that I was 'very fortunate.' I could make a lot of money in the material world but I'm not going to do that." Prabhupada paused for some time and then looked at me and said, "Your fortune is that you've come to me." It's true. My good fortune is that I have come to Prabhupada.
