Nitya-Trpta d.d. (Bhaktivedanta Archives): The Archives does not have those missing Tapes
Jai Srila Prabhupada!
It is indeed very sad that so many days are missing, throughout Srila Prabhupada’s time with us.
Unfortunately the Archives does not have those tapes. A Gap list was created many years ago by Ekanatha Prabhu to try and encourage anyone who might have them or know about any recordings to surrender them to the Archives. I have attached the list here.

Remember this is an old Gap log and needs to be updated. But sadly the gap you have referred to has not been filled.
The Archives pursued this for years… but to no avail. We were told that Tamal Krishna Goswami didn’t record during that time (August)…
The Archives noted the lack of recordings once Hari-sauri left Vrindavana. But to be fair Srila Prabhupada wasn’t talking all that much. Still even one or two more sentences during that time would be a precious treasure. Hari-sauri was the best at recording everything Srila Prabhupada said.
Ekanatha did pursue the missing 1977 tapes with Tamal Krishna Goswami himself.
See attached letter.
There was no follow-up by Tamal Krishna Goswami.
