Srutakirti : It was a very beautiful afternoon. The sun was shining. Prabhupada was walking around chanting japa.
"So, which is the most beautiful animal?" he asked me.
"A cow?!" I blurted out with little conviction in my voice.
"No," he said quickly. "A horse. The horse has a very beautiful form. The muscle structure is very nice."
Again, I messed up. I thought Krishna's favorite animal was a cow. It had to have been a cow. As soon as Srila Prabhupada told me otherwise, though, it made perfect sense.
