Polish Tour in Full Swing! – Indradyumna Swami Nectar
For the past two weeks, His Holiness Indradyumna Swami has been engaged in preaching on the annual Polish tour. He is keeping disciples and devotees up to date through his Facebook posts.
On July 4th, Indradyumna Swami wrote in a Facebook post:
Our 29th annual Festival of India is in full swing here on the beaches of the warm Baltic Sea coast in Poland. 250 devotees from numerous countries around the world have assembled for 2 months of harinam and festivals introducing people to our Krsna conscious movement. If the weeks and months ahead are anything like the first few days of our programs, we’re in for some real nectar.
Ananta Vrindavan das has been taking photographs of some of the tour Devotees’ in a portrait-like fashion and those photos can also now be found on Facebook.
Already, there are very heartwarming stories of how the Tour is impacting the local Polish people. In a touching Facebook post, Indradyumna Swami writes about Kasia, who first came to the Polish festival with her parents when she was 11 years old.
As a child she was fascinated by everything. She even won a sari in the dance competition. She still has it. She returned this evening, 20 years later, with her own daughter. “I wanted her to have the same wonderful experience I had at your festival when I was young,” she said. “And most important I wanted to buy the book I remember you spoke on during my first visit years ago.” She is standing here next to me with that book: Srila Prabhupada’s Bhagavad Gita As It Is. Just one of the many miracles these festivals are producing. All glories to Sri Krsna Samkirtan!
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!
