Memories of Srila Prabhupada

LONDON, SEPTEMBER 1977
I had been traveling with Ghanasyama Prabhu (now Bhakti Tirtha Swami) in East Germany (DDR) and Austria, assisting him in his work with the “Library Party” of distributing sets of books to libraries and colleges by acting as a translator into German.
