(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 24 January 2013, Radhadesh, Belgium, Srimad Bhagavatam 1.8.31-36)

Golden-GaurangaPrabhupada writes this in a  letter to Jayapataka Maharaja, ‘The prediction of Lord Caitanya was that it (the sankirtan movement) would spread to every town and village but Bhakti Vinoda Thakura predicted that people from all over the world would come to Mayapur and chant the holy name.’

Prabhupada said, ‘The prediction is there, now let us make it come true!’

So you know, we often have this thing, ’Prediction, prediction! Let’s see if it is going to happen. On 21 December nothing happened.’ 

What shall I say? Another let down! Just like the year 2000 also, what a disappointment – this whole Y2K but we had lots of grain for a long time, so that was good. Anyway, Prabhupada didn’t just leave it at the prediction. Yes, the prediction was there but Prabhupada said, ‘No, now let’s make it come true!’
