Audio: Srila Gaura Kishor Das Babaji Maharaj's disappearance, 1983.
"Gaura Kishor Babaji asked our Guru Maharaj (Srila Saraswati Thakur):
'Don't go to Kolkata, remain in the Dham and go on chanting Krishna
Nam. Why do you bother about that? ... Kolkata is full of filth, a
filthy place, a place of business, the place of exploitation, mutual
robbing, all these things - nastiest place. You avoid that.' But Guru
Maharaj answered: 'I've got so much charm in your foot dust that by
dint of your foot dust I can conquer thousands and thousands of Kali.
They won't be able to disturb my attention from your holy feet. By the
power of your foot dust I can conquer the whole world. Please bless me
in that line.'"
