This is a letter sent to us by Indradyumna Swami:
Yesterday my family and I attended your event, the Festival of India, in Mielno. It was a wonderful experience. I read about Lord Krishna as a teenager when one day, by chance, I came across a book called, “The Science of Self Realization” in a local library. I was only 10 years old at the time and it wasn’t easy reading. Even today I am still trying to grasp the deep knowledge within that book. One thing I have understood from reading it is that my present life is not the only life I have lived. I have lived many lives. This I have realized by the grace of God. Yesterday my 6-year-old daughter was invited onto the stage of your festival to take part in a singing prayer. It was a beautiful prayer repeated over and over. I was touched watching her so happy singing and dancing at the same time. It is something children rarely get to do these days. Her eyes were shining! As I watched her I prayed she would remember those moments later in life and as a result, would be inspired to read “The Science of Self Realization” and understand the mysteries of life. And O! How beautiful she looked in the sari which she received at the end of the prayer along with all the other girls on stage. What a wonderful gift. Thank you all so much.
I was so inspired by everything that at the end of the function I purchased a Bhagavad Gita As It Is, by your leader at a book stall. I feel strongly that this book will help me at this stage of life, wherein I am undergoing a number of difficulties. I pray it will take me from darkness to light, from despair to hope and ultimately to God. I desire that so much. I am wishing you all the best in your upcoming festivals and I end this letter with deep gratitude!
