In Mayapur in 1976 I arrived before the main arrival of devotees. Srila Prabhupada gave Bhagavatam class every morning and after class he would give out the mangala-arati milk sweets to all the devotees personally from his hand while still sitting on the vyasasana. It was an unforgettable experience to go forward and try to shove your way through to the front as inoffensively as possible in anxiety that maybe the sweets would be finished by the time you got there. Somehow there was always enough and everyone got a taste. Once the huge crowds of devotees arrived this was discontinued.
