In 1993 I was so fortunate to have a personal darśana with Śrīla Gaura Govinda Svāmī Mahārāja.
I was not in good spirits. I looked into his eyes, which were so full of love and compassion and told him why.
He said, “Don’t be pessimistic. There is no question of pessimism in Mahāprabhu’s movement. There is all optimism.”
The song Inner Conflict is based on this wonderful darśana. At the end of the video, there is a quote from Śrīla Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Mahārāja.
