This is from a lecture by Brother Premamoy, minister of SRF, held in 1983.
Topic is "Bringing out the best in our human relationships":

" A famous rock-and-roll star once came to the Ashram to pay his respects and I received him here at Mt. Washington. He was a "star", who you all surely know, a so-called "idol". But he was extremely respectful. He always addressed me as "Sir" and was very polite and noble in his manners.
He told me he had been taught at home to address every man elder than himself as "Sir".
He himself was a "King" in the field of music, but he believed in treating others with respect......

That was a nice piece to post here. Elvis called me "ma'am" the first conversation we had-then I told him my name wasn't "ma'am" it was Wanda and he said, "yes ma'am, then snickered and said, ehh...Wanna-
what did you say it was? I told him my full name and that it was a Creek Indian name and he said, Berry.?..I said Hill and he said "okay, I found my thrill on...hummmberry-hill..." and that made me laugh. I wasn't nervous after he laughed; he was just so friendly and noisy as all get out but that turned out to be just the way he was, curious about other people's lives. But respectful with everyone he met, young, old or inbetween, male or female Elvis put them first. wjh
