1. Srila Prabhupada’s arrival in USA: preaching is independent

    Preaching is independent. If you have got desire, you can preach in any circumstances and Krsna will help you. I have practically experienced. I went to your country without any help, without any money. Alone. And gradually things developed. …all foreigners. I did not approach any Indian. I did not approach anyone, but Krsna sent friends, gradually developed.
