The Lord dances in Nilacala – Verse quoted by Indradyumna Swami

“The Master sang joyfully in accents astonishingly sweet and charming to the ear, as He moved in the midst of a circle made by His intimate devotees. The ornament of the three worlds, Lord Gauracandra Himself, of all attractive persons the most attractive, dances, in the supreme abode of Nilacala, the temple like a blue mountain.”

[ Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya, Susloka-Satakam, verse 14 ]

Woodstock 2017 – Taking shelter – Anecdote of Indradyumna Swami

indradyumna-swami-chanting

From Poland: His Holiness Indradyumna Swami Maharaja didn’t come for breakfast today. Later someone informed us that Srila Gurudeva is so anxious about the success of the Woodstock Festival. His anxiety is warranted, as the political situation is especially tense this year with the festival happening against government pressure to stop it. Srila Gurudeva was so intensely chanting in his room this morning.

Meanwhile, I was left musing to myself: how often do we skip our own meals to take such genuine shelter of the Lord?
