Lecture on the Departure of Aindra Dasa

Speaker: His Holiness Indradyumna Swami
Where: Poland, July 20, 2010
Essence: “For those with a deeper vision, Aindra Prabhu spent most of his life chanting Hare Krsna in Vrindavana, serving his Deities, doing parikrama and his final act of service was to fall down in front of his Gaura-Nitai Deities.  I am sure a flower airplane appeared and took him back to the spiritual world. So, we rejoice that he achieved his heart’s desire.

Speaker: His Holiness Indradyumna Swami
Where: Ekaterinburg, Russia, May 12, 2010

Slow but Steady Wins the Race

Speaker: His Holiness Indradyumna Swami
Verse: Srimad Bhagavad Gita – 6.41-43
