Apr 04, 2014 LONDON, ENGLAND (SUN) The Salvation Army and Krishna Consciousness, together on Gaura Purnima, Oxford Street, London.
Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur describes the Salvation Army band marching through the streets of the western world as the first strains of Sankirtan in the West. (Sajjana Tosani 1885) He also says:
"Lord Caitanya did not advent Himself to liberate only a few men of India. Rather his main objective was to emancipate all living entities of all countries throughout the entire universe and preach the eternal religion."
