Dear Makolan:
So far as I am concerned, I recite "Bhaaratha Varshe, Bharatah Khande, Mero: 
DaksinE paasvE" as also the version used in most temples in USA by way of 
abundant caution.  Can you or any other knowledgeable Bhagavata quote the 
Pramanam for your statement "North American continent is referred to as 
go-theertha kandam in the Vishnu Puranam" I do not remember to have seen any 
such reference in Vishnu Puranam.
