“The Land Down Under” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

His Holiness Indradyumna Swami is now in Australia, visiting the beautiful New Govardhana temple community there.

To describe the visit so far, Indradyumna Swami wrote in a Facebook post:

I am visiting one of ISKCON’s most successful projects, New Govardhan, a rural community of devotees in New South Wales, Australia. Established in 1979 and set on 850 acres of land, the project is home to 1,000 devotees. Next weekend they will host the famous Sacred Sounds Kirtan Retreat.

He gave a Srimad-Bhagavatam class and he will also be leading kirtan during the upcoming kirtan retreat there. He is traveling with his beloved Giriraja, Nrsimha, and Siva lingam, which has been worshipped since the year 1635:

A Visit to Dubai – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

In January, His Holiness Indradyumna Swami visited Dubai for several different programs, one of which involved a panel discussion in front of 500 of Dubai’s elite. In another sweet program, the devotees celebrated His Holiness BB Govinda Swami’s appearance day and Indradyumna Swami wrote him a sweet offering which he spoke at the program. To summarize the trip to Dubai, Indradyumna Swami wrote in a Facebook post:

During a 3-day visit to Dubai in the UAE, we participated in several events. First of all a hall program for the local devotees. Then a public program attended by the elite of the city. It was entitled: “Awakening The Soul.” Finally we celebrated my good friend, BB Govinda Maharaja’s, Vyasa Puja. An amazing 72 hours!Your servant, Indradyumna Swami

Kirtan in South Africa – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

His Holiness Indradyumna Swami was just recently in Cape Town, South Africa. There, he and some accompanying devotees visited Table Mountain, which he described in a Facebook post is listed by Unesco as a World Heritage Site and one of the new 7 Wonders of Nature. Before that, he was in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he was given a VIP Pass to attend a prestigious program: the Global Citizens event.

While in Africa, Indradyumna Swami has led kirtan and taken many pictures of the devotees eagerly participating and dancing in kirtan. He captured the pictures in an album he added to Facebook aptly entitled, “Kirtan in South Africa.”

In the same post, he quoted Srila Prabhupada’s own words about establishing a center in South Africa. Srila Prabhupada wrote in one letter:

“I am so glad to hear that you would like if we could open one branch of our International Society for Krishna Consciousness there in Cape Town, South Africa. That would be very nice. So if you can arrange for our reception, we may go there immediately, and even I may go on my way back from India and establish one centre there [ in South Africa ]. Undoubtedly this movement is very sublime and anyone who takes to it becomes happy.”

[ Srila Prabhupada letter, July 3, 1971 ]
