Simple Living and High Thinking

by Padmapani Dasa

Srila Prabhupada stayed in these rooms for six years (1959-1965) while he was preparing for his trip to America. The rooms were simple and austere.

“Yes, we are trying to set a perfect example according to the Bhagavad-gita as it is, how to execute simple living and high thinking. We are not interested in any material comforts of life which are limited and temporary. We are interested in solving the real problems of life, birth, death, old-age, and disease. These problems must be solved, and Krishna gives the formula in the Bhagavad-gita.” (Srila Prabhupada letter, June 10, 1975)

Srila Prabhupada translated and wrote his purports to the first three volumes of the Srimad-Bhagavatam in the Radha-Damodar temple before leaving for America.
