On his 1st travel to USA alone:
"How will I make them understand this message of Krishna consciousness? I am very unfortunate, unqualified and most fallen.
Therefore I am seeking Your benediction so that I can convince them, for I am powerless to do so on my own."

Poster - A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Abhaya Caranāravinda Bhaktivedānta Svāmi (1896-1977) was an Indian spiritual teacher and the founder-preceptor of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), commonly known as the "Hare Krishna Movement".
Members of the ISKCON movement view Bhaktivedānta Swāmi as a representative and messenger of Krsna Caitanya.
Born in Calcutta, he was educated at the Scottish Church College in Calcutta.
Before adopting the life of a novice renunciate in 1950, he was married with children and owned a small pharmaceutical business.
In 1959 he took a vow of renunciation (sannyasa) and started writing commentaries on Vaishnava scriptures. In his later years, as a traveling Vaishnava monk, he became an influential communicator of Gaudiya Vaishnava theology to India and specifically to the West through his leadership of ISKCON, founded in 1966.
As the founder of ISKCON, he "emerged as a major figure of the Western counterculture, initiating thousands of young Americans."
His Mission: When he sailed to the United States in 1965, his trip was not sponsored by any religious organization, nor was he met upon arrival by a group of loyal followers.
Here is what he wrote then:
I do not know why You have brought me here. Now You can do whatever You like with me.
But I guess You have some business here, otherwise why would You bring me to this terrible place?
How will I make them understand this message of Krishna consciousness? I am very unfortunate, unqualified and most fallen.
Therefore I am seeking Your benediction so that I can convince them, for I am powerless to do so on my own.
Here is a true example of a Bhakta and his surrender to God in action... which resulted in immense results!
