Interview- Prabhupada das- 1972 Philadelphia (30min audio)
“I was a ghetto rat from South Philly. I would harass devotees chanting on the streets. I’d insult them and intimidate them. After four years of this, a devotee approached me. I gave him my usual Junk Yard Dog response and he just blew me off, “You’re just a little punk.” and then he left.
For some reason that really affected me.
I didn’t want to be like that. I looked for him for twenty minutes to apologize.
I got to see Srila Prabhupada five times, to eat from his plate…
It took me forty years to get initiated.“
