Prabhupada: We get full sunshine. Yes.

Guest (1): Prabhupada, what is the meaning of the word Srila?

Prabhupada: Srila is… just like we say “Sri” to the ordinary person. And Srila to very respectable person.

Guest (1): La.

Prabhupada: La, yes. Sri means beauty, and la means lila. So “ONE WHO IS INVESTED WITH BOTH BEAUTY AND THE POWER TO UNDERSTAND THE LILA OF KRSNA.”
