Memories (#98)
New York, 1966

"Interrupting the lecture, an old white-bearded Bowery Bum enters and walks down the middle of the room. We sit in confused silence.

"What to do? The old beggar is wearing a raincoat and battered hat. In his hands are papertowels and two rolls of toilet paper. While speaking, he walks past the Swami and carefully places the handtowels by the sink and the toilet paper on the floor beneath. Then, clearing his throat and muttering something, he turns and walk out.

"'Just see,' the Swami says with satisfaction. 'He may not be in order, but he has just begun his devotional service. Just see how it natually comes. That is the process. Whatever we have - it doesn't matter what - we must offer it to Krishna.'"
Hayagriva dasa
(The Hare Krishna Explosion, Chapter 1)
