Harinam In Dakor, Home To The Famous Deity Of Ranchor
Indradyumna Swami: Yesterday we went on harinam in Dakor, home to the famous deity of Ranchor. In sanskrit Ranchor signifies a coward or, “one who leaves the battlefield.” Krsna, however, is glorified and is famous amongst His devotees as Ranchor because He left the battlefield to rescue Rukmini, His first queen in Dwarka. People were stunned seeing so many western devotees singing Lord Krsna’s holy names and many joined in the kirtan, chanting and dancing alongside us. After harinam we had darsan of the beautiful deity of Ranchor in the temple and we all prayed to Him to allow us to continue helping Srila Prabhupada rescue fallen souls from this terrible age of Kali.
