1. Srila Prabhupada did not go to America empty-handed

    I didn’t go to America empty-handed. I went with the complete philosophy of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, written in these rooms, inspired by the Goswamis. Thats what is pushing this Krishna consciousness movement. If I have been successful, it’s because I have delivered my Guru Maharaj’s message intact, without change or deletion. That is parampara. The bona fide guru is like the postman delivering a message. He doesn’t open the mail and write his own opinion. You may like the message or not, take it up or not — I have done my duty. I have delivered it. And it all began here. Therefore these Radha Damodar rooms are the hub of the wheel of the spiritual universe.

    {Srila Prabhupada is referring to his writing, in Radha Damodar temple in Vrindavana, a commentary on the first canto of Srimad-Bhagavatam)
