The Mercy of the Spiritual Master – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

Sometime around 2003-4, I slept more than necessary. My wife, Rasika Siromani dasi always tried to wake me up and I wouldn’t get up easily. So one time she complained to our spiritual master, His Holiness Indradyumna Swami Maharaja about it. Maharaja generally doesn’t take sides in such not-so-critical disputes between husband and wife. In that particular instance, he was somewhat in a jovial mood and he also saw how Rasika was sincerely trying to help me by making me get up early to do my spiritual practices properly.

So he said “Govinda Caran: Whenever Rasika wakes you up, you have to get up. This is my instruction to you”. I had to obey it. For many years, that instruction helped me. Now her complaint is that I don’t sleep enough! Such is the mercy of the spiritual master! Indradyumna Swami Maharaja ki jaya!
