Hearing from Srila Prabhupada was the same as hearing from Lord Caitanya

At the beginning of the class on March 11th, after chanting the Sanskrit sloka responsively with the devotees, Srila Prabhupada exhorted all to chant the Sanskrit verse. I felt pleased and encouraged by this, because I always took pleasure in chanting the verse. Later in the same lecture, Srila Prabhupada said, I am very glad that you European and American boys have taken so much trouble to come here, which made me feel happy. However, he continued, But you'll be benefited if you come here and try to take lessons from Caitanya Mahaprabhu as He taught Sanatana Goswami. From this I took it that Srila Prabhupada was cautioning us not to misuse our time or act frivolously in Mayapura. I also wondered how we should go about taking lessons from Caitanya Mahaprabhu. The obvious answer, which I did not immediately realize, was that hearing from Srila Prabhupada was the same as hearing from Lord Caitanya.
