Srutakirti Prabhu takes Great Pleasure in doing Menial Service to Srila Prabhupada.

Srutakirti : Kirtananada said, "I have trained him in cooking. He cooks very nicely, but he doesn't know how to massage yet." Prabhupada said, "Anyone can massage. It's not very difficult." Then Prabhupada said to me, "So, follow me." We went outside, and he said, "Take the lota." I grabbed the lota. We walked about twenty or thirty paces and he said, "Give me the lota." I handed him the lota, and he went off into the bushes to pass. After a few minutes he came back and said, "Here. Now wash this." I immediately became aware of my service. As Prabhupada's servant, I did every menial thing, no matter what. I took great pleasure in this. I thought it was great. I was actually going to be taking care of Prabhupada in whatever little need he had.
