“Gauranga, Gauranga, Gauranga!” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

“Nityananda was sitting here anxiously waiting for the Sankirtan movement to begin. Sometimes, He would call out, ‘Oh, My Brother! Where are You? Where are You? When are We going to go out and deliver the fallen conditioned souls? Gauranga, Gauranga, Gauranga!’ This whole area is permeated with the loud chanting of Nitai chanting the Lord’s Holy Names.”

“The real desires of the heart” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

Kamyavan

“The real desires of the heart” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

‘Kamyavana’ means that forest where all your desires are fulfilled. Of course, that doesn’t mean material desires, it means spiritual desires. We’re all very familiar with our material desires; they’re quite embarrassing. But by the mercy of our Spiritual Masters we’re beginning to learn what are the real desires of the heart … Our spiritual desires.”

“Please free us from material desires” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

“Everyone in this world is controlled by Cupid. But Cupid is controlled by the beauty of Krishna. It is very appropriate that at the beginning of our Parikrama, we have come to the temple of Madana Mohana. We have come to the Deity of Madana Mohana to pray, ‘Please free us from material desires so we can serve You purely without motivation.”

“Srila Prabhupada’s Mercy” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

Prabhupada

“Srila Prabhupada’s Mercy” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

“It’s all due to Srila Prabhupada’s mercy that we get to come to Vrindavan Dham, take boat rides down the Yamuna river, touch the sacred water of the Yamuna, come to secluded holy places like Durvasa Muni’s ashram, meet the Sadhus who are living here, chant ‘Hare Krishna’ in the association of so many wonderful devotees in a holy place. This is all because Srila Prabhupada left this holy place and went to mleccha-desh to spread the glories of Vrindavan.”
