Giriraja Swami : When Srila Prabhupada returned to Bombay from America, his first patron, Sumati Morarji, wanted to arrange a grand function to welcome him back. She staged a spectacular event on top of the Scindia office building in prestigious Ballard Estate, downtown Bombay, and she invited all the elite of Bombay. The press also came. Srila Prabhupada spoke, and the devotees performed kirtana. Prabhupada sang three verses from the Brahma Samhita and invited the audience to join in the chorus: govindam adi purusam tam aham bhajami.
After speaking for half an hour, he accepted prasadam with Sumati Morarji and the honored guests and dignitaries. The function was reported in the newspapers. One carried a full-page article on the back page. After describing Srila Prabhupada's accomplishments in the West, the reporter asked Srila Prabhupada, "To what do you attribute your great success?" "It is all the mercy of my Guru Maharaja," Srila Prabhupada replied.
