October 8, 1974 : Mayapur

Srutakirti: I received an exciting telegram. I immediately ran to Srila Prabhupada's room and offered my obeisances. "Srila Prabhupada," I said smiling, "My wife just gave birth to a son!" "Very nice," he said, returning my smile. "So, you can call him Mayapurachandra. Maypurachandra! You will not find that name anywhere in the shastra. I have invented it."

(Srila Prabhupada was very compassionate and concerned about his disciples. Though he was the spiritual master and should be treated as good as the Lord Himself, he still served his disciples like a father.)
