Highlights from Indradyumna Swami’s Diary Volume 9:
An arduous trek to a 1,700-year-old Vishnu temple on an active volcano in the remote jungles on the island of Bali. A flight crew thanks him for trying to save a convulsing passenger’s life and asks him to teach them the maha-mantra. A detailed account of Hurricane Katrina’s devastation and how the devotees in New Orleans and on the Mississippi farm weather the storm.
How a spiteful deputy mayor in Poland cancels their festival, and then has an amazing change of heart.Meet the Indian Ambassador to Poland who preaches Bhagavad-gita from the stage and fields the questions and answers booth. Maharaja tolerates flea-infested seats, sleeping, intoxicated flight attendants, and planes dangerously low on fuel as he traverses Russia to preach in the sub-zero tundra of Siberia. On harinama in Greece Maharaja meets a face reading, fortune telling Chinese doctor whose predictions about Maharaja all come true.
“Those who know His Holiness Indradyumna Swami have come to expect the unexpected; and relish following his journeys. Diary of a Traveling Preacher (Vol. 9) demonstrates once again that the merciful and compassionate Lord lives always with the traveling preacher and that we too can live with the Lord by just by hearing His devotees' adventures”
