Prabhupada pilgrimage places on America’s eastern and western coast

by Chaitanya Charan dasOctober 8, 2016

Prabhupada’s quarters at the New Dwarka temple in Los Angeles are the place where Prabhupada spent the maximum time outside India. During my last year’s US visit, seeing the Matchless Gift center on the Lower East Side in New York had been the most poignant Prabhupada pilgrimage for me. This year, seeing Prabhupada’s quarters in the LA temple was a similarly poignant moment. It’s symbolically significant that these two memorable places exist on the two coasts of America – the eastern and the western. They remind us that Srila Prabhupada, during his manifest presence, spread Krishna consciousness so vigorously all over America, starting from its Eastern coast, where it all began at the Matchless Gift storefront, to its Western coast, where the LA center became the model temple for exemplary deity worship.
