Srila Prabhupada had told Gopal Ghosh about the anecdote when he got the idea for ISKCON. It is where Srila Prabhupada did his own bhajan and many times Sri Rupa and Sri Jiva Gosvamis appeared to him in his dreams. Once, when he was staying at Radha Damodara temple, before coming to America in 1965, while honouring  prasadam, Srila Prabhupada was looking out of the window when suddenly Rupa Gosvami appeared before him and spoke encouraging words, “Maharaja, don’t worry about anything. Go ahead and travel to the West and preach. Just preach the message of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and the chanting of Hare Krishna. You will be successful. I guarantee you because I will be right there with you all the time.
