On March 21st, while on a pilgrimage with a group of devotees in Gokul, Vrindavan, India, Indradyumna Swami passed by Karshni Ashram run by Sharanananda Ji Maharaja. They noticed a small crowd gathering outside and stopped to inquire what was happening. Much to their amazement they were told that the Dalai Lama was visiting. The leaders of the asrama invited them to meet with him.
Indradyumna Swami and his group spent part of the morning discussing spiritual topics with the Dalai Lama and then participated in a yajna (fire sacrifice) and Siva puja in his honor.
Later in the afternoon the Dalai Lama did a public program that was attended by many important spiritual leaders from Vrindavan.
As they drove away after the program Indradyumna Swami turned to one of our devotees and said, “It’s pretty amazing isn’t it? Of all places, we met the Dalai Lama in Gokul, Vrindavan!”
