Jolly Swami joking

From HH Bhakti Charu Maharaja rememberance of Srila Sridhar Swami:

"I remember one incidence in New York. I took one of my acquaintances from Washington and Maharaja used to have one yoga contraption like that would make you hang upside down. [chuckles] So Maharaja put Henry in that. And when you put him upside down, like you lie down in that thing and that contraption swivels and then you hang upside down. Maharaja used to use that for his physical exercise. He used to tell me that it is a very good thing for your body. So when he did that, all of the money in Henry’s pockets fell out. [laughs] He said, “Don’t worry, this is how we collect money from people.” [laughter]
