The Deities at the next temple visited: Srila Sarvabhauma Bhattacharya's
temple. This is the place where all kinds of branches of knowledge
(vidya) are concentrated.
When concluding, His Divine Grace quotes Saranagati: "All mundane
learning is an exhibition of maya and an obstacle to Your service. It
brings about infatuation for the temporary world and makes an ass of the
Vidya Nagar gates.
