Travelling Preacher

Indradyumna Swami is touring Australia and will be in Melbourne in the second week of January to do four shows...
Just at that moment a well-dressed man came up to me. "Excuse me," he said, "are you Indradyumna Swami?"

I was surprised that a guest would know my name. "Well, yes, sir," I said. "I'm Indradyumna Swami."

"Will you be speaking tonight?"

"Yes, I will," I said, "in just a few minutes."

"I've come for your talk."

"Have you?" I said, somewhat embarrassed.

"Well," said the man, "I attended one of your festivals in the Sydney area last year, and the lecture you gave proved a turning point in my life."

"Whatever I know I've learned from my spiritual master," I said.

"Actually, I just stumbled in off the street that evening," he said. "I was a homeless person. The stress of life had made me an alcoholic. I lost my well-paying job, and my wife kicked me out of our home. For two years I wandered around Sydney getting free meals at food kitchens or eating out of garbage cans. Whatever money I'd get from begging would immediately go on wine."
