(HH Kadamba Kanana Swami, 24th October 2012, Vrndavan, India) Lecture: “Rama-Vijaya, Nama-Vijaya”
Aindra was interested in the rasika side. I remember we had an American sankirtan leader in Vrndavan for a little while. His name was Yogish Chandra Prabhu and he gave a sankirtan lecture in the temple when he said: ‘Any man who doesn’t go out on sankirtan is not a man, he is a woman!’
Aindra wasn’t there at that lecture but Aindra commented on that lecture and he said: ‘Well, some of us don’t mind being women.’
So, it became a whole thing and Yogi (Yogish Chandra) as we used to call him, marched into Aindra’s room… bang, bang, bang… ‘Aindra, open the door!’ Then he said: ‘Aindra?’
(Yogish Chandra) ‘Aindra, you got to know one thing. I am a gopi too!’
So we certainly had that special Vrndavan flavour!
