“Srila Prabhupada’s Mercy” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

Prabhupada

“Srila Prabhupada’s Mercy” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

“It’s all due to Srila Prabhupada’s mercy that we get to come to Vrindavan Dham, take boat rides down the Yamuna river, touch the sacred water of the Yamuna, come to secluded holy places like Durvasa Muni’s ashram, meet the Sadhus who are living here, chant ‘Hare Krishna’ in the association of so many wonderful devotees in a holy place. This is all because Srila Prabhupada left this holy place and went to mleccha-desh to spread the glories of Vrindavan.”

Manohara, “Who attracts the mind” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

Cows!

Manohara, “Who attracts the mind” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

“When we come to each of these individual places, we absorb ourselves in all of those specific characteristics of that holy place. Krishna is called Manohara, one of His unlimited names. Manohara means ‘Who attracts the mind’. We control our mind by fixing it on hearing in Vrindavan of the beautiful pastimes of the Lord. This is the best way to control the mind. One day our minds and our hearts will be spontaneously attracted to all these wonderful pastimes of Krishna.”

Lord Siva loves the devotees of the Lord – Verse quoted by Indradyumna Swami

Gurudeva

Lord Siva loves the devotees of the Lord – Verse quoted by Indradyumna Swami

“Because Lord Shiva is a great devotee of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, he loves all the devotees of the Supreme Lord. Lord Shiva told the Pracetas that because they were devotees of the Lord, he loved them very much. Lord Shiva was not kind and merciful only to the Pracetas; anyone who is a devotee of the Supreme Personality of Godhead is very dear to Lord Shiva. Not only are the devotees dear to Lord Shiva, but he respects them as much as he respects the Supreme Personality of Godhead.”
