Srila Prabhupada’s 40th Anniversary of his Visit to South Africa
“A pure devotee, who has implicit faith in the lotus feet of the Lord, can create sacred places in any part of the world… My lord, devotees like your good self are verily holy places personified. Because you carry the Personality of Godhead within your heart, you turn all places into places of pilgrimage. (SB 1.13.10). The places are sanctified due to the presence of pure devotees; any place automatically becomes a place of pilgrimage…” SB4.6.25, purport
