    The final part in Srila Prabhupada's world tour covering the period of July 1976 to his passing in November 1977.

    This section starts in July 1976 with Srila Prabhupada taking a ride on one of the many Radha-Damodar Traveling Sankirtan Party busses.

    At that time there were hundreds of Prabhupada's disciples traveling all over the United States in converted Greyhound busses holding public festivals and distributing Srila Prabhupada''s books and their base was the Radha-Damodar Temple, Gita-Nagari, at Port Royal, Pennsylvania.

    Prabhupada then goes to New York to attend the annual Ratha-Yatra Festival which was held in a very grand fashion down Fifth Avenue.



    Later on, still in July of 1976, Prabhupada travels to the United Kingdom to Bhaktivedanta Manor and we see various activities being performed by the devotees there.



    Still in the same month Prabhupada returns to India, to Hyderabad, to install the Deities in the temple there.



    In Janurary of 1977 Prabhupada and some of his disciples travel to Allahabad for the Kumbha Mela Festival.

    It is very cold at that time and the situation was very austere at the Kumba Mela and at this time Srila Prabhupada was not very well.

    Still he was preaching very enthusiastically.



    In Feburary of 1977 Srila Prabhupada went to Sridham Mayapur for the last Gaura Purnima Festival that he would attend.

    In May of 1977 we see Srila Prabhupada holding a pandal program at Hrsikesa.

    In May of 1977 we see Srila Prabhupada arriving in Vrindavan for what would be his final visit.

    The final chapter of the story of Srila Prabhupada's phyiscal presence is described in the program called "The Final Lesson" which continues on from the point where this video ends.
