Yamuna : During the days, we would sometimes be invited to various programs. Whether we traveled by foot, by rickshaw or boat, wherever we went, our program remained the same - kirtana, katha, kirtana, katha, and then prasadam. Mostly, we traveled to each engagement by rickshaw. Srila Prabhupada would be in his own rickshaw, and his disciples would go in a convoy of several other rickshaws. I remember only one or two engagements where we took a boat across the river.
These programs in Allahabad were very grand. Again, Srila Prabhupada spoke a great deal about what real atonement, or prayaschitta activities, meant because many of those present were there to relieve themselves of sins by bathing at the auspicious times. So Srila Prabhupada hammered home the principle that the only atonement, or the only way to kill the seed of sinful activities, was through the process of Krishna consciousness.
