“Not only do they hear you, they reply to you.” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

His Holiness Indradyumna Swami spent much of the month of February in the holy land of Sridhama Mayapur traveling to various places, giving classes, and leading harinam sankirtan through the streets. He recounted all of his adventures in the Dhama in various Facebook posts. In early February, he gave a class in which many children were present and so he recounted many stories for them from his adventures in preaching through the years.

Indradyumna Swami mentioned in the class that he had always felt a connection with Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur. He said that he was shy when he was young, but one of his sankirtan leaders in France told him:

“Whenever you go to a town for the first time, Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur accompanies you.”

Indradyumna Swami went on to say that Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur is the original pioneer of the movement. He not only rediscovered the Krishna Consciousness movement in Mayapur but he had the vision of the whole world becoming Krishna Conscious.

Toward the end of the class, Indradyumna Swami mentioned that he read that one time, someone asked Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur, “When we pray to previous acharyas and great saintly people who have left this world do they hear our prayers?” As he was reading, Indradyumna Swami said that he was thinking to himself, “What’s the answer?” and covered the answer on the page with his hand.

Then, in order to draw it out even longer, he went and took some prasadam and then came back and revealed the answer:
