Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur, he was very dynamic. And he had utmost faith in the chanting of Hare Krishna. Somebody told me today that he met Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. He told him he was a freedom fighter. He was trying to get freedom from the British. I am also a freedom fighter but I am trying to save the soul, to free the soul from the material nature, and give the soul eternal life in the spiritual world. Haribol! So like this Prabhupad told us many times that how he met Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur in Ultadanga Road.
