Renunciation in modern times

Speaker: His Holiness Indradyumna Swami
Where: Hong Kong University, Nov 17, 2008
Essence: “Everything animate or inanimate that is within the universe is controlled and owned by the Lord. One should therefore accept only those things necessary for himself, which are set aside as his quota, and one should not accept other things, knowing well to whom they belong.”

Perfect leadership

Speaker: His Holiness Indradyumna Swami
Verse: Srimad Bhagavatam – 1.15.38
Where: Hong Kong, Jan 25, 2008
Essence: “Modern kings should learn how to perform yajna for prosperous life, how to encourage people in religious activity, how to protect the innocent and how to conduct civilized warfare. The government should pass laws that any aspiring politician should regularly study Srimad Bhagavatam. How can one be a leader or a king without being conversant with the laws of God?”

Goal of chanting – Initiation lecture

Speaker: His Holiness Indradyumna Swami
Where: Hong Kong, Jan 24, 2008
Essence: “After years of attentive chanting, when we eventually chant purely, one tear will glide down our cheeks. That tear is more valuable than all the gold in the world. That is the goal of chanting.”

The ultimate medicine

Speaker: His Holiness Indradyumna Swami
Where: Hong Kong, Jan 23, 2008
Essence: “When we are diseased, the only thought in our mind is to quickly become cured. Similarly, we should be eager to get cured of the disease of material existence. Chanting Hare Krsna is the ultimate medicine to cure this disease once and for all.”

Just be good devotees

Speaker: His Holiness Indradyumna Swami
Verse: Srimad Bhagavatam – 1.15.36
Where: Hong Kong, Jan 21, 2008
Essence: “The protection of the Lord comes in proportion to our surrender. If we are sincere in following the regulative principles and help our spiritual master the best we can, in spreading the sankirtana movement, we can also experience protection, mercy and love in our lives. So, don’t be in anxiety – just be good devotees.”
