Srila Prabhupada now wants to establish a seat of Krishna Consciousness at the Gorakhpur University in Gorakhpur. It is a very formidable university and Dr. Rao (Ramananda) and Kirtanananda Maharaj and others are presently there trying to establish such a program. The idea is that students may come there to receive their PhD in Krishna Consciousness and then go out and teach in colleges, schools and temples all over the world. His Divine Grace is very enthusiastic about this program; if the program was recognized by the U.S. colleges, millions could take to Krishna Consciousness as their major!
Srila Prabhupada, quoted in a letter from Aravinda, 17 Nov 1970
