My personal ecstasies

A devotee wrote in asking when/where did Srila Prabhupada say, “These purports are my devotional ecstacies”?

—–

A reference to this is mentioned in Srila Prabhupada Lilamrta, Chapter 50, but it does not give a time or place.

Also, a devotee wrote in and recalled: “The context for this quote was when Prabhupada gave instructions to his BBT editors (1976). Something to the effect that ‘You can edit the translations or word-for-word, but don’t change one word of my purports. My purports are my emotional ecstasies.'”

Never leave iskcon

A devotee wrote in asking when/where did Srila Prabhupada say, “Never leave ISKCON”?

We found a couple of references where Srila Prabhupada said never to leave the association of devotees.  However, I have also heard that Srila Prabhupada said (Paraphrasing) No matter how intolerable it may seem, never leave iskcon.  Actually nothing is intolerable, it only seems that way.
