This place is Thakurbari,Radha-Govindaji,is my life. That is the beginning of my, this spiritual life. And after so many years,still Radha-Govindaji has dragged me. So it is His kindness. So the beginning was the same thing-worship of Radha Krsna Deity and introduction of Rath yatra. That is I am doing in a bigger scale and a wider scale all over the world. I can remember standing at the doorway of Radha-Govinda temple saying prayers to Radha-Govinda murti. I would watch for hours together. The Deity was so beautiful with His slanted eyes. -Srila Prabhupada Talk at Radha-Govinda Mandir March 24,1976,Calcutta.
