After living at a friend’s son’s place in Butler, Pennsylvania for a while, Bhaktivedanta Swami left for New York City to stay with Dr. Mishra to explore more opportunities to preach the message of Krishna consciousness. The Swami did not agree with Dr. Mishra’s mayavadi or impersonal philosophy, but sat at the back and listened to his meetings. Then one day he was given a chance to speak and the Swami challenged all that Dr. Mishra was telling the people. After that, although he was very kind to the Swami and the Swami was nice to him, Dr. Mishra never allowed the Swami to speak again.
