One evening while in his garden in New Dwarka (Los Angeles temple), Srila Prabhupada looked into the sky and said, "So, is the sky the color of Krsna?"

A disciple said, "In your Krsna book it says that Krsna is the dark bluish like the thunder cloud."

Prabhupada said, "The sky is the color of Krsna. The light from Krsna's bodily effulgence makes the sky blue.

Sometimes after leaving the garden he would go back to his room and listen to the recording of the Srimad-Bhagavatam class he had given that morning. Then he would have me pick night-blooming star jasmine growing on the bushes just outside his garden. The flower's scent is especially fragrant at night.

One evening while holding a sprig of blossoms up to his nose for several minutes, he said, "Ahh, this is Krsna."

I would often bring them to his bedroom just before his evening massage. Throughout his massage he would smell them off and on. He would then keep them on his pillow, close to his nose, all night. The following morning I would find the flowers gently lying on the pillow exactly where they had been the night before. The flowers looked as fresh and fragrant as ever, as if they had just been picked. His Divine Grace is always showing us how Krsna is in every part of the creation.
