“Reside permanently in Sri Purushottam Kshetra” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

“Reside permanently in Sri Purushottam Kshetra” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

Before the 3rd annual kirtan mela at New Govardhan, Australia began, His Holiness Indradyumna Swami was reflecting on the Holy Dhamas and their potency. 
In a beautiful facebook post, Indradyumna Swami quoted Sri Murari Gupta:

yāvat syāc cañcalaṁ cittaṁ na syād yāvat sunirmalam
tāvat tīrthāni puṇyāni vicaret sarvataḥ pumān

Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu said, “As long as the heart is fickle and has not become steadfast in nature, till that time one should wander around everywhere in all the holy places.”

tataḥ sunirmale citte sthira-dhīḥ puruṣottame
nivāsaṁ kurute nityaṁ pathikaḥ svāśrame yathā

“Once the heart has attained a steadfast nature, one should reside permanently in Sri Purushottam Kshetra, just as a traveler finally comes back to live in his own permanent home.”

[ Sri Murari Gupta’s Kṛṣṇa-caitanyacaritāmṛtam (3.13.9 – 10) Translated by Hari Parshad Das from the Sanskrit available at Gaudiya Grantha Mandira ( Found in Sri Krishna Kathamrta Bindu, Issue number 421 ]

Now Indradyumna Swami’s travels in the West have officially begun. Before he left the Holy Dhama, Indradyumna Swami visited Surya KundaVarsana, and Radha Kunda, among other holy places.
