The final part of Following Srila Prabhupada covers his last preaching engagements in 1976 including riding on Radha Damodar Traveling Sankirtan party Bus, 1976 New York City Ratha-Yatra Festival, visiting Bhaktivedanta Manor London.
By January 1977 Prabhupada was beginning to experience difficulties and his disciples were aware of this.
A large group of devotees accompanied Srila Prabhupada to the Kumbha Mela Festival in Allahabad.
Then we see Prabhupada at 1977 Mayapur Gaura Purnima Festival.
In March 1977 Srila Prabhupada attended his final public preaching program, a large Pandal Program in Bombay.
In May of 1977 Prabhupada journeyed to Rishikesh with some hopes that he may be able to regain his health there.
But unfortunately there was not much improvement.
Prabhupada returns to Vrindavan and remains there from May to August 1977 continuing to work on translation of his life's work, Srimad-Bhagavatam.
Then during August 1977 Prabhupada embarks on a surprise trip to London, with plans to continue on to the United States.
However he was very unwell and convinced Brahmananda to change his tickets, cancelling his United States visit, returning to Vrindavan instead.
Then we see Srila Prabhupada's final pastimes up to his disappearance in November 14, 1977 and the Samadhi ceremony performed by his disciples and godbrothers that followed.
