Just ten days earlier, Prabhupada had conducted the first movement of his India Temple Symphony — the Mayapur Sonata — in allegro, to a full house in the middle of a rice paddy in rural Bengal. Now he would dig deeper into his theme and calmly conduct the second movement in a slower tempo, in adagio, on an empty plain on the outskirts of Vrindaban…[In Vrindaban] there were three major tasks to accomplish: (1) to sign the deed for the Raman Reti property; (2) to sign documents granting Prabhupada his rooms at the Radha-Damodar temple in perpetuity; and (3) to organize a cornerstone-laying ceremony for a new temple on the Raman Reti land. Prabhupada was scarcely settled in his room when the various characters in the sitcom began to arrive, one by one, from central casting.
