Cool Head, Warm Legs

Here is a Prabhupada pastime that came to mind yesterday: During a press conference attended by several reporters Srila Prabhupada was being questioned by a young female reporter who had asked a string of questions in a very challenging manner.

After a number of questions she asked: “Why do you shave your heads?” Srila Prabhupada, having patiently answered her queries up to this point now responded, without batting an eyelid: “Why do you show your legs?” in reference to her short skirt. The reporter was caught completely off guard and was speechless. The question hung in the air for a moment, and then His Divine Grace continued: “We think it is better to have warm legs and a cool head,” with a big smile. Everyone in the room, including the young lady reporter laughed at Srila Prabhupada’s incredibly quick and disarming humour, completely free from malice.
