Srila Prabhupada

"Every morning in our maṭha we sing the song in which Prabhupāda established the bhāgavata-paramparā: kṛṣṇa haite catur-mukha... In his composing of this song, he accepted all of the great, perfected personalities from different lines and declared, “This is the line of Gaura.” If Prabhupāda had not come, then today would the name of Mahāprabhu and talks from Bhagavad-gītā and Śrīmad Bhāgavatam be found anywhere? Here in Mathurā, in Vraja and everywhere else, gaura-kīrtana and hari-kathā are still going on and have not vanished. Therefore the world will forever remain indebted to Prabhupāda for his preaching."
