Artistic Offering (#106)
Gour Mohan's Beloved Son

by Madhavendra Puri dasa
"In 1875, a powerful Vaishnava acarya, Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura predicted: 'A personality will soon appear to preach the teachings of Caitanya Mahaprabhu and move unrestrictedly over the whole world with His message.' On September 1st, 1896, Abhay Caran De was born to Gour Mohan De and Rajani in Calcutta. On the occasion of his birth, an astrologer was called. He calculated the birth-chart and predicted to the joy of all present there that when Abhay Caran (Srila Prabhupada) would reach the age of seventy he would cross the ocean, become a great exponent of religion and open 108 temples worldwide."
