High class people like to do menial service for Krsna

    Posted on March 2, 2016

Atreya Rsi: Higher class. Very intelligent, educated...

Prabhupada: The low class, they purchase that big roti. [laughs] That's all.

Atreya Rsi: Big capati.

Prabhupada: They cannot come to the restaurant.

Parivrajakacarya: No.

Atreya Rsi: Some people even come, higher class people, and work. They give their service in the restaurant. They wash dishes. They serve tables. We engage them in bhakti-yoga.

Prabhupada: I was very happy when I heard, respectable gentlemen, out of love they are washing dishes. You know that? Atreya Rsi told me.

Hari-sauri: Yes. In Iran. Some important people in Iran, just out of some..., to do some service, they're even going in the restaurant and assisting by washing the dishes, and they're bringing things here and there.

Tamala Krsna: Phew. It's really devotional.

Prabhupada: They are so gentle.
