“I saw my house transformed into Goloka Vrindavan” – Indradyumna Swami Quotes Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur

His Holiness Indradyumna Swami attended the wedding of his dear disciples Syama-vanamali dasa and Keli Kandali dasi. Indradyumna Swami wrote about grhasta life and how when householder couples are always ready and willing to open their homes to others to experience Krsna Consciousness, then their home becomes just like the spiritual world. The entire letter can be found in one of Indradyumna Swami’s Facebook posts.

He quoted from Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur in it:

ye dina grhe bhajana dekhi
grhete goloka bhaya

“One day while performing devotional practices I saw my house transformed into Goloka Vrindavan.”

[ From Saranagati, by Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur ]

 

 

At the end of the letter, Indradyumna Swami gives sweet blessings to the newly married couple: “May the Lord always watch over and protect you, may He bless you with unlimited services, may He fill your home with many happy children and endless contented guests. May He give you the spiritual strength to bear all trials and tribulations and the intelligence to overcome all obstacles on the path of pure devotional service. And when all is said and done, may He transport both you and all your kith and kin back home to the spiritual world to be part of the eternal family of His devotees. As Srila Prabhupada once said, ‘One day we’ll have our ISKCON in the spiritual world!'”
