Bhaktisiddhanta lectured to a crowd that had assembled for a parikrama or walking tour of Mayapur, the birthplace of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.
"Guru Maharaj was looking out at the large crowd of devotees," Nayanananda Das Babaji recalled. "Then he turned his head toward the left side where I was standing. He was looking intently at someone behind me and became silent for a long moment. I turned and saw that the person with whom he was making eye contact was Abhay Charanaravinda Prabhu."
"I have a prediction," Bhaktisiddhanta announced. "However long in the future it may be, one of my disciples will cross the ocean. That devotee will bring back the whole world."
