Glorious, glorious is His descent into this world! – Verse quoted by Indradyumna Swami

Seeing the fallen sinners, He casts upon them a glance of mercy. He fills all the worlds with the shoreless ocean of His mercy. He chases away all sins. He breaks into pieces the fear of repeated birth and death. Glorious, glorious is His descent into this world!”

A prayer before japa – Verse quoted by Indradyumna Swami

“The holy name is the purest form of knowledge; it is the best of all vratas or vows and the highest meditation; it gives the most auspicious fruits; it is the greatest renunciation; it is a matchless spiritual activity; it is the most pious of holy works; it is the supreme path of self-realization; it offers the greatest liberation and goal; it is the topmost destination; it is the best devotional service and the most purifying agent; it gives love of Godhead and is the essence of remembrance of the Lord; it is the cause of all causes, the Supreme Absolute Truth; it is the most worshipable object and acts as the supreme guide and spiritual master.”

A Devotee’s Vision – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

Vrinda

A Devotee’s Vision – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

“A devotee’s vision is that nothing belongs to him or her, everything belongs to the Lord; so we are very happy being the servants, engaging whatever we have in the service of Radha and Krishna. The perfect example of that is Vrnda-Devi who gave her beloved forest, her blessed forest to her mistress—Srimati Radharani.”

[ His Holiness Indradyumna Swami, Vrinda Kunda, 2015 ]

“You are just like the moonlight” – Nectar of Devotion quoted by Indradyumna Swami

Gurudeva

“You are just like the moonlight” – Nectar of Devotion quoted by Indradyumna Swami

“One aged devotee of Krsna addressed Him in this way: ‘My dear Krsna, O killer of the demon Agha, my body is now invalid due to old age. I cannot speak very fluently, my voice is faltering, my mind is not strong, and I am often attacked by forgetfulness. But, my dear Lord, You are just like the moonlight, and my only real regret is that for want of any taste for Your pleasant shining I did not advance myself in Krsna consciousness.’ This statement is an instance of lamentation due to one’s being unable to achieve his desired goal.”

Balarama is the source of spiritual power, or the original spiritual master.” [ Krsna, The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Prayers by the Demigods for Lord Krsna in the Womb.”
