Prabhupada: “Pradyumna, give him little, this one here.
George Harrison: Oh, no, no. Please, no more. I’m really full. I won’t have to eat for a few days. (laughter)
George Harrison: Very well.
Prabhupada: Sweet will help you digest. Don’t give three–at least four.
George Harrison: I won’t be able to eat much more.
Prabhupada: Three is given to the enemy. According to our Indian system, if you give somebody three, that means he is enemy.
George Harrison: Oh, really? I always liked the number three.
Prabhupada: (laughs) You must give at least four.
George Harrison: I like three, five, seven, nine. Those numbers.
Prabhupada: Bring some fruit. What are the three enemies? Kama, krodha…
Gurudasa: Lust, anger, greed.
Prabhupada: Three enemies–lusty desire, anger and greediness.
George Harrison: Yes. But there’s a lot of nice threes.
Prabhupada: Yes. Just like Brahma, Visnu, Mahesvara. Three worlds, sankha, martya, padma. Trinity. These are nice things.”
