Bathing in Ganga

Question: It is said that when he first arrived in Mayapur, understanding that he was in the holy land, he offered his obeisances and then dipped his head into the cool Ganges mud to get the blessings. Please kindly confirm that you dipped your head into the cool Ganges mud instead of the Ganges water?

Guru maharaj: When I came to Mayapur the first time, I came from Swarupganj by the ferry from …. to Hulaghat. At that time there was no, where the ferry is today it was not there.  I crossed over I bowed my head down in the mud.  It was not actually the Ganges, Jalangi, Ganges!  I saw the mud and I saw the ground, I just thought this is the holy land of Lord Caitanya, and I immediately offered my obeisances!
