HH Romapada Swami in Boston Sept 2008

Firstly, I want to express my gratitude to Maharaja for the wonderful lectures and subsequent discussions. I consider myself fortunate to be able to hear from such personalities, despite my lack of qualification. The feeling is that we are not really qualified to appropriately receive and truly appreciate the message that is being conveyed - it is only due to the mercy of such elevated devotees that we are able to receive this sublime knowledge. However, if we do try to hear from such pure devotees attentively and with the right mood, then the message stays within the heart, and does influence us in a positive way.

Srila Narottama das Thakura shares that pure devotees who carry Krsna in their hearts always have this transcendental quality to purify contaminated souls just by giving their darsana (audience). His Holiness Romapada Swami Maharaja very kindly offered this benediction recently to the eager devotees in St. Louis.
