Devotee: Why is it, Prabhupāda, that in earlier parts of the Kali-yuga no one like yourself came throughout the rest of the world and preached Kṛṣṇa consciousness?
Prabhupāda: Huh? Preached? Caitanya Mahāprabhu preached. His descendant preached. Why do you say no one preached?
Devotee: But throughout the rest of the world, places like Japan and Australia...
Prabhupāda: Your calculation of the world. If it is preached anywhere, that is preached on the world. It was not spread, you can say, but it was preached.
Devotee (2): The seed was planted.
Devotee (3): They were saving it for you.
Prabhupāda: For you also.
