“Many are called but few are chosen” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar


“Many are called but few are chosen” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

In Sri Vrindavan Dhama, His Holiness Indradyumna Swami gave a wonderful class on the glories of Srila Narottama das Thakur at the end of January just before traveling to Mayapur. His other activities in Vrindavan prior to heading to Mayapur are recounted in various Facebook posts but are also now recounted on his Twitter page.

Indradyumna Swami mentions in the class on Srila Narottama das Thakur:

I always lament that I wasn’t there in New York in 1965. Prabhupada said, ‘In the beginning, Krsna sent me a few good men.’ I always pray that in my next birth, I can be one of those men that Prabhupada called.”

He goes on to mention that the Acharya or Spiritual Master takes a group of disciples who help him in his mission. In a very instructive statement, Indradyumna Swami said that better than to go back to the Godhead would be to be part of that traveling roadshow preaching Krsna Consciousness.

This is not unlike what he says in a lecture delivered later on in Mayapur. In that lecture, he mentions that Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur said that he would not be satisfied until all the fourteen worlds were chanting the Holy Names of the Lord. Similarly, Indradyumna Swami said, “We will also not be satisfied until the fourteen worlds are chanting Hare Krishna.”
