I wish that some of you must join this movement, go to the foreign countries, preach this sublime cult of Caitanya Mahāprabhu. Pṛthivīte āche yata nagarādi grāma. There is great need. We have, of course, established so many temples, but still we require to establish temples, Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa temples, Caitanya Mahāprabhu's temple, in every village, every town of the world.


University Lecture -- Calcutta, January 29, 1973:

So I have come to this university with a hope that some of you become really brāhmin. The Sanskrit department is meant for brāhmin. Paṭhan pāṭhan yajana yājana dāna pratigraha. A brāhmin is called paṇḍita. Why? Because a brāhmin must be learned. brāhmin is not called a fool. So this department, Sanskrit department, is meant for the brāhmins. So I wish that some of you must join this movement, go to the foreign countries, preach this sublime cult of Caitanya Mahāprabhu, pṛthivīte āche yata nagarādi grāma (CB Antya-khaṇḍa 4.126). There is great need. We have, of course, established so many temples, but still we require to establish temples, Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa temple, Caitanya Mahāprabhu's temple, in every village, every town of the world.

Now from each and every of our centers, we are sending devotees in buses. They are going interior, into the villages of Europe and America, and they are very much well received. England especially, they are going village to village. They are very much well received. This cult is so nice. Even Christian priests, they are surprised. They are surprised. One of the priest in Boston, he issued pamphlet that, "These boys, they're our boys, from Christian and Jews. Before this movement, they did not care to come to the churches even. Now they are mad after God." They are admitting.

The Christian priestly class, they are not against us. Those who are saner class, they're admitting that, "Swāmījī is giving something tangible." Their fathers and forefathers come to me. They bow down. They say, "Swāmījī, it is a great fortune for us that you have come to our country." So I am alone working, and the movement is being appreciated. And if persons, scholars from this university come forward and teaches this movement, it is meant for that. brāhmins business is that, preaching. Brahmā jānāti. One must know Brahman and distribute the knowledge of brahma-jñāna. That is the business of brāhmins.
