Prabhupāda: What is this maker, the trademark?

Gargamuni: Concord.

Prabhupāda: Concord, yes. Concord is famous tape recorder company. [tapping microphone] It is all right?

Yamunā: Oh yes, Swamiji. It can also, it can be an amplification system.

Gargamuni: See, if you talk… [feedback]

Yamunā: The thing is they’re too close to one another so there’s a feedback. You have to be twelve feet away. Then it will amplify. That’s what we were using in all of our speaking engagements.

Gargamuni: Hare Kṛṣṇa.

Prabhupāda: Oh, it acts as amplifier also? So I’ll have to speak from here?

Gargamuni: No.

Yamunā: You don’t have to… If all, the two microphones weren’t so close, then it would be… We wouldn’t have this noise, and you could speak as you like to speak.

Prabhupāda: So Gargamuni wants that prayer? Solo, solo?

Gargamuni: Yes.

Prabhupāda: You also like that?

Yamunā: Oh. [Prabhupāda chuckles] If it isn’t too much energy, Swamiji, that would be very beautiful.

Prabhupāda: All right.

Gargamuni: Also, when you used to sing in New York, Vande ‘Haṁ, you would add on Cintāmaṇi. Govindam ādi-puruṣaṁ.

Prabhupāda: Yes, sometimes. You shall, I shall…? I shall pray that?

Gargamuni: Oh yes, that’s nice, that one.

Yamunā: What does that mean, Swamiji, that new prayer?

Prabhupāda: Cintāmaṇi… That is description of Kṛṣṇaloka.

Yamunā: From the Brahma-saṁhitā?

Gargamuni: Yes.

Prabhupāda: You have?

Yamunā: Yes, I have a copy of it.

Prabhupāda: Sit down? Why do you keep there?

Gargamuni: So it’s not too loud.

Prabhupāda: Oh. [Prabhupāda chants Cintāmaṇi and other prayers]
