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 ]
