Indradyumna Swami:
One of the highlights of the Festival of Chariots in Durban was BB Govinda Maharaja singing the holy names accompanied by the famous 65-piece KZN Philharmonic Orchestra. He was backed up by a chorus of Bada Haridas, Jayadeva das and the local 12 member Kwa Mashu choir. At the end of the 90 minute program the production received a standing ovation from over 4,000 people in the audience. The mood was very much like Vrindavan! “My dear friend, now I have met My very old and dear friend Krsna on this field of Kuruksetra. I am the same Radharani, and now We are meeting together. It is very pleasant, but I would still like to go to the bank of the Yamuna beneath the trees of the forest there. I wish to hear the vibration of His sweet flute playing the fifth note within that forest of Vrndavana.” [Srila Rupa Goswami, Padyavali, text 380]
