“Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura retired to Godrumadvipa, Mayapur, and standing on his veranda there he had a vision of a spiritual city where devotees from all over the world would come together and chant the holy names and worship Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. When I visited there I stood on that veranda and looked across the river and saw Srila Prabhupada’s samadhi dome very prominently. Some devotees were a little critical of the architecture of the samadhi, saying it was not in the traditional Bengali style. But looking across from the balcony, imagining Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura standing there, I thought that he would be very pleased, because his mood and desire was that devotees from all over the world should come to chant Hare Krishna and worship the Supreme Lord Krishna Chaitanya. And that unique style of architecture was the result of devotees coming from all over the world in pursuance of the vision of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura.”
