Madhudvisa das: Prabhupada had a great, great affection for Australia and the preaching in Australia because we could see that when hearing Prabhupada giving lectures at different parts of the world, he would refer back to Australia – how the preaching was going on in Australia and they have gone to jail in Australia or they have the Rathayatra and they are distributing more books in Australia than everywhere else in the world, and it was a great joy for Srila Prabhupada to have his devotees in Australia. He sent some of his dear devotees there in the beginning. Bali Mardan and Upendra das went there in the beginning. It was an English-speaking country that had never been exposed to Krishna consciousness or anything like Krishna consciousness before, it was a completely fresh start, whereas in England some of his godbrothers had gone there before and there was some affiliation with India. But Australia was a far remote place, and people had taken to Krishna consciousness very elaborately and very diligently. And it was through the book distribution that that could be gauged, that here in Australia, a relatively small country with maybe 15 or 17 million people in the whole country, they were one of the top book distributors in the whole world at that time. At one point, Australia was the number one book distributing country in the world in the early ’70s, and we used to make sure that Srila Prabhupada heard about that. We would send the report, and Srila Prabhupada was always beaming. I remember when he came out with the Caitanya-caritamrta and they were in India and Prabhupada said, “And we will print 15 thousand volumes of this book.” I was there and I said, “Prabhupada, we’ll take 10 thousand.” Prabhupada said, “Oh, Madhudvisa is taking 10 thousand already. We must print 20 thousand.” Prabhupada saw that this was a young and vibrant and healthy country. Sometimes Australia is referred to as “the lucky country,” and Srila Prabhupada would go there and he would love the ghee that was there, the cow’s ghee. So he worked out a program that the Australian devotees could pay for their books in ghee because there was money being sent from Los Angeles to India to finance all the different building projects there. So instead of having the devotees from Australia send money from Australia to Los Angeles, then Los Angeles send money to India, Prabhupada said, “No, forget about all that sending back and forth. Instead of paying for your books in dollars to Los Angeles, pay for your books in ghee sent to India,” because this high-quality ghee sent from Australia to India was more valuable than the dollars sent from Australia. In this way we would send the ghee, and he said the devotees would be able to distribute this ghee to the Life Members in India and feed the devotees with high-quality ghee so they would stay healthy while they were doing their preaching work in India. So for so many years, thousands of pounds of ghee, this Allowrie ghee, a very famous ghee – it came in this big 10 gallon tin or 5 gallon tin – paying for our books in ghee. That was quite unique.
But if one has a motive for personal sense gratification, his devotional service is manifested differently. Such a man may be violent, proud, envious and angry, and his interests are separate from the Lord’s.
One who approaches the Supreme Lord to render devotional service, but who is proud of his personality, envious of others or vengeful, is in the mode of anger. He thinks that he is the best devotee. Devotional service executed in this way is not pure; it is mixed and is of the lowest grade, tamasah.
