When I was traveling with my Guru Maharaj, Srila Bhakti Vaibhav Puri Goswami Maharaj, I could really witness what Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami had accomplished. He had planted the seed for Bhakti in the most unbelievable places around the world. And wherever we arrived, many people flocked to my Guru Maharaj thirsty for sadhu-sangha. Because we are all one big family the followers of Sri Gauranga, devotees received us with so much love.
This inspired my Guru Maharaj in his advanced age to travel 11 times around the world. Previously he did not want to travel to the west at all. But seeing the need of the many souls his heart melted for them.
