I was in Montreal and Prabhupad is giving a lecture. That time we had a Vyasasan. It was very high. It was like when we stand up we would be facing Prabhupad eye to eye or he will still be a little higher than that. It was a very high Vyasasan. He had to really climb up, it had steps going up and it was more or less kind of a pulpit. So he would be up there, he would sit and he would even take Prasad there. In a feast, they would bring a big plate of Prasadam and we would all be sitting down and he would take Prasadam from there and sometimes he would give Prasad out from there. One day he was giving his lecture from up there actually and at this point he was just preaching very hard, we have to be a hundred percent Krishna conscious. We have to try; we have to be a hundred percent Krishna conscious. We have to try for that. We have to become. If we are hundred percent Krishna conscious, then we can get closer to Krishna, then our life will be completely successful.
