Prabhupada Was The League of Devotees
Devotee: The League of Devotees, was that Godbrothers again? Was that some Godbrothers that you joined up with, or was that just...

Prabhupāda: No, after leaving Jhansi I went to this Godbrother.

Devotee: Keśava.

Prabhupāda: I lived there for few months. Then I went to another Godbrother, that Imlitala, Delhi. Then I left there. I used to live alone in Delhi. Then I took one house in Keśī-ghāṭa. Then the Rādhā-Dāmodara men, they called me that "You can live here. We give you two rooms. We don't charge. We give you the place." I came to Rādhā-Dāmodara. And from Rādhā-Dāmodara temple I went USA.

Devotee: I was just wondering what exactly the League of Devotees was.

Prabhupāda: Oh, League was that, that was... I was trying to collect some devotees. Some of them, they were medical... Yes. Medical students. So they came and used to live with me. But still, I lived there for two years, from 1954 to '56...This Prabhākāra and... They were not full time; they were students, that's all. They were living with me.

Devotee: But your Bhāgavatams, it says they were published by the League of Devotees. Does that just mean yourself, or there were others?

Prabhupāda: (laughs) That was... League of Devotees was my organization. Therefore I gave that name.

Devotee: But actually it was just you. Oh.

Prabhupāda: That League of Devotees, I was alone doing. (laughs)

Devotee: (laughing) I was trying to understand who it could be.

Prabhupāda: I am everything at that time. There were some students, but they were not many active. I was doing everything. That League of Devotees means I am everything.

(Srila Prabhupada Conversation, Vrindavan, October 3, 1976)
