“Although His complexion is not blackish, He is Krsna Himself” – Verse quoted by Indradyumna Swami
On the appearance day of Srila Narottama das Thakur, His Holiness Indradyumna Swami delivered a lengthy lecture on Narottama das Thakur. At the beginning of the class, Indradyumna Swami discusses how Narottama was the second generation from Caitanya Mahaprabhu and was personally chosen by Mahaprabhu to keep the sankirtan movement going.
Indradyumna Swami quoted from the Srimad Bhagavatam:
yajanti hi su-medhasaḥ
“In the Age of Kali, intelligent persons perform congregational chanting to worship the incarnation of Godhead who constantly sings the names of Kṛṣṇa. Although His complexion is not blackish, He is Kṛṣṇa Himself. He is accompanied by His associates, servants, weapons and confidential companions.”
Indradyumna Swami often refers to Srila Narottama das Thakur as his hero and has explained why in lectures and articles previously.
