Srila Prabhupada's guru Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura disappeared. (Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Sarasvati Thakura is the spiritual master of Srila Prabhupada. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura started the Bhagwat Press for publication of Krishna conscious philosophy. He organized the Gaudiya Matha, with 64 branches throughout the country in order to propagate Krishna consciousness. Further, he had a strong desire to spread Krishna consciousness in the English speaking world.
Srila Prabhupada, through his sincere efforts, fulfilled the desire of his spiritual master and even after stupendous success of establishing ISKCON worldwide, gave all the credit to his Guru Maharaja.)
