Praying for Nama-Ruci – Indradyumna Swami Nectar

His Holiness Indradyumna Swami has returned to Mayapur after a brief tour in South Africa. He wrote in a Facebook post from today:

Yesterday I returned to Mayapura from Africa. Bright and early this morning myself and several devotees went on parikrama beginning from Yogapith, where Lord Caitanya appeared. Walking through villages, fields and forests we visited the bhajan kutir of Jayadeva Goswami, the Madan Gopal temple and a large banyan tree where Mahaprabhu gave darshan to Nimbarka Acarya. But my favorite place of all was where Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati chanted one billion names of Krsna on his japa beads before starting his preaching mission. As we chanted japa there I prayed for “nama-ruci” – a genuine taste for chanting the holy names. I also prayed for more service in delivering the holy names to others, as I know such service gives great pleasure to Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati and my own beloved spiritual master, Srila AC Bhaktivedanta Swami.

Indradyumna Swami often discusses the importance of nama-ruci, jiva-doya, and Vaishnava-seva, and these aspects of devotional service were also propounded by Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur, Srila Rupa Goswami, and Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

    Jai! So rightely said by Srila Indradyumna Swami Maharaj about nama ruci. In this fallen age we are so distracted always that more often our vhanting is just the mechanical process than actual the taste of holynames. I too would like to pray to all the senior and exalted Vaishnavas to bless this me to get atleast 1% of the nama ruci to what they had even then i think i wud dive in ecstasy of holy name.
    Jai Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Swami Maharaj!
    Jai Srila Prabhupada
    Jai Srila Indradyumna Swami Maharaj
