The Holy Name of Lord Govinda – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

Two months ago, His Holiness Indradyumna Swami gave a wonderful three-part seminar on the glories of Srila Haridas Thakur while in Sri Mayapur Dhama. In the second part of the lecture, Indradyumna Swami notes that in the Skanda Purana, a Mahatma says:

“I see that Kali Yuga is a like a black poisonous snake with a gaping mouth and fangs, but please don’t be disturbed, dear Devotees, and listen with faith. Once the Holy Name of Lord Govinda is being chanted, it is like igniting a forest fire which will burn to ashes the poisonous snakes within the forest.”

In the lecture, Indradyumna Swami several times has the Devotees chant the Maha Mantra. He additionally quotes Srila Sanatana Goswami who says in the Hari-bhakti-vilāsa (2.12) that anyone can be elevated to the position of a brāhmaṇa by the process of initiation:

yathā kāñcanatāṁ yāti kāṁsyaṁ rasa-vidhānataḥ / tathā dīkṣā-vidhānena dvijatvaṁ jāyate nṛṇām

“As bell metal is turned to gold when mixed with mercury in an alchemical process, so one who is properly trained and initiated by a bona fide spiritual master immediately becomes a brāhmaṇa.”

Srila Prabhupada also frequently quoted the above verse.
