A Vision of Ourselves

Speaker: His Holiness Indradyumna Swami
Where: Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, May 10, 2009
Essence: “The spiritual master finds us in an unpolished state where our heart is full of blemishes of material desire. But our vision should be that everyday we polish our heart so that one day it develops into a rare jewel of pure devotion which can be offered at the lotus feet of our spiritual master.”

How to see things as they are?

Artist: His Holiness Indradyumna Swami 
Verse: Srimad Bhagavatham – 7.8.5
Where: Aug 8′th 2007, Kostryn, Poland.
Ocassion: Wood Stock Festival, 2007 
Courtesy: Candrasekhar Acarya Das.
Essence: “So far in Bhagavatham we have heard only about saintly qualities of Prahlad Maharaja. Here Hiranyakasipu sees only bad qualities Srila Vishvanatha  Cakravarti Thakur comes to the rescue of devotees by mercy of Mother Sarasvathi, and gives us the right understanding…Therefore we have to be very careful to always see things in the light of Shastra and in the light of words of pure devotees and not according to our intelligence. Because in our stage of devotional service, we still have little bit of Hiranyakasipu inside us.”

Inspiring devotees for last 2 1/2 week beach festivals of Polish 2007 tour: “Let us continue our unmotivated uninterrupted service upto last day – Aug 20’th…Don’t let yourself think you are tired…you are going to jump out of the bus tomorrow as  if it were very first day of the tour – June 20’th. You all look very tired, how are you going to do it? You are going to go deep within your hearts and find the sincere desire to please your Spiritual Master and Krishna. That’s how you are going to do it. Because you know it pleases your Spriritual Master and Krishna you are willing to do anything for that.”
