Honoring a Special Disciple – Indradyumna Swami Nectar
On July 1st, His Holiness Indradyumna Swami honored the birthday of his long-time disciple and travel companion, Ananta Vrindavan das, who has accompanied him all over the world on his preaching tours. Ananta Vrindavan das is known for his skillful photography and videography of devotee events (retreats, weddings, festivals, etc.). Just now, Ananta Vrindavan das is in Poland, as the Polish Tour (Festival of India) has begun and he is capturing the magical moments with his camera.
To honor his disciple, Indradyumna Swami wrote a very sweet birthday note on his Facebook page:
Dear Ananta Vrindavan: A very happy birthday to you today! You are rendering a most valuable service to our movement by capturing for posterity many of the significant moments in the modern day pastimes of Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. You are appreciated by thousands of devotees around the world for your expert and artistic photos and videos. We are all so fortunate to have you onboard! You and I have been everywhere together! Looking forward to many more adventures with you. Yours always, Indradyumna Swami
All glories to the Devotees spreading Mahaprabhu’s mercy in Poland! All glories to Srila Gurudeva! All glories to Ananta Vrindavan das and his seva rendered at the lotus feet of Srila Gurudeva!
