Srila Prabhupada: '"So, my dear boys and girls, about six years ago I came to your country single-handed, with this pair of cymbals. Now you are so many chanting Hare Krishna. That is my success. It was the prediction of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu:
prthivite ache yata nagaradi grama,
sarvatra pracara hoibe mora nama
Lord Caitanya desired that 'In all the towns—in as many towns and villages as there are on the surface of the globe—My name will be broadcast.' He is Krishna Himself—svayam krsna, krsna caitanya-namine — simply changing His name as Krishna Caitanya.
So His prediction will never go in vain. That's a fact. So my plan was that I shall go to America... If I can convince the younger generation of America, they will take it up.' If you kindly take this Krishna consciousness movement seriously, your country will be saved, and the whole world will be saved."
(Lecture, May 18,1972, Los Angeles)
