“Reside permanently in Sri Purushottam Kshetra” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

Before the 3rd annual kirtan mela at New Govardhan, Australia began, His Holiness Indradyumna Swami was reflecting on the Holy Dhamas and their potency. 
In a beautiful facebook post, Indradyumna Swami quoted Sri Murari Gupta:

yāvat syāc cañcalaṁ cittaṁ na syād yāvat sunirmalam
tāvat tīrthāni puṇyāni vicaret sarvataḥ pumān

Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu said, “As long as the heart is fickle and has not become steadfast in nature, till that time one should wander around everywhere in all the holy places.”

tataḥ sunirmale citte sthira-dhīḥ puruṣottame
nivāsaṁ kurute nityaṁ pathikaḥ svāśrame yathā

“Once the heart has attained a steadfast nature, one should reside permanently in Sri Purushottam Kshetra, just as a traveler finally comes back to live in his own permanent home.”

[ Sri Murari Gupta’s Kṛṣṇa-caitanyacaritāmṛtam (3.13.9 – 10) Translated by Hari Parshad Das from the Sanskrit available at Gaudiya Grantha Mandira (www.granthamandira.net) Found in Sri Krishna Kathamrta Bindu, Issue number 421 ]

Now Indradyumna Swami’s travels in the West have officially begun. Before he left the Holy Dhama, Indradyumna Swami visited Surya KundaVarsana, and Radha Kunda, among other holy places.

“Why shall I ask You for anything?” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

“Why shall I ask You for anything?” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

Just days ago, His Holiness Indradyumna Swami captured the spirit of the 3rd annual kirtan mela at New Govardhan, Australia by quoting from a letter of Srila Prabhupada’s. Headed up by BB Govinda Swami, Bada Haridas, Sri Prahlada dasa, Janardan prabhu and others, the kirtan mela is enthusing the Devotees to unlimited degrees!

“Prahlada Maharaja said, ‘My Lord, I have no problem, so why shall I ask You for anything? I have no problem. Everyone has got problem in this material world. They’re trying to overcome the problem. But I have no problem. I have no problem because my mind is always absorbed in glorifying Your Lordship. Therefore, I have no problem.’ So kirtan. You’ll feel immediately refreshed. However burden you may feel, as soon as you perform krsna-kirtana, you’ll find immediately refreshed. So one who has got taste for this kirtana, he has no problem.”

[ Lecture, January 19, 1974, Honolulu, Hawaii ]

As of this past week, Indradyumna Swami’s travels in the West have officially begun. Before he left the Holy Dhama, Indradyumna Swami visited Surya KundaVarsana, and Radha Kunda, among other holy places.

Now Indradyumna Swami’s preaching pastimes in the western world have begun, beginning with this kirtan mela.
