Where: San Jose, USA, Mar 27, 2008

Preaching should go on

Speaker: His Holiness Indradyumna Swami
Where: San Jose, USA, Mar 27, 2008
Essence: “The real result of practicing sadhana is that a vaisnava develops the desire to preach. The time is short, and the situation is getting worse day by day. We should feel the sense of urgency. Brhad mrdanga needs to continue pounding. Preaching should go on. This is most important.”

Conflict resolution

Speaker: His Holiness Indradyumna Swami

Dealing with separation

Speaker: His Holiness Indradyumna Swami
Where: Seattle, Mar 18, 2008

Spiritualize your relationships

Speaker: His Holiness Indradyumna Swami
Where: Seattle, Mar 18, 2008
