Видео: Badrinarayan das - Memories of Srila Prabhupada.
Beyond the park there were museums and a quite, forested area. I had walked in the park many times, but I had never seen this area. When Prabhupada walked there, deer came on both sides of the walkway and walked with us. They'd run twenty yards ahead and then wait. Prabhupada would catch up, and then they'd run ahead and wait again. Twice when Srila Prabhuapda was there they followed us all the way down and all the way up. One of the devotees quoted the atmarama verse; that even dull animals can appreciate a Krishna conscious person. We were thinking, "What is the status of Srila Prabhupada? Is he like Chaitanya Mahaprabhu? We weren't sahajiya-like, but we saw that the deer sensed Prabhupada's purity.
Atmarama verse - a verse from the Srimad-Bhagavatam (1.7.10), which explains that all types of spiritual seekers are attracted to Krishna
Sahajiya - a pretender who imitates the outward mood and ecstasies of the Lord's devotee, but who is without any real devotion or internal realization
