People of all ages, including the educated and respectable, attended the Assembly’s meetings.

While still a student, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Prabhupada published Surya Siddhanta, Bhakti Bhavana Panjika, and other books related to astrology. In the afternoons, he would go to Calcutta’s Beadon Square and engage in debate with other students about religion, politics and other subjects. In 1891, this debating society took the name of “The August Assembly” and all its members had to promise to never get married.
