Chapter-28: I’m in Such Anxiety that I’ve Fallen Ill

June 14, 1995

By Indradyumna Swami

News came from South Africa that they are still debating postponing Ratha-yatra. I spent much of today trying to contact them, to no avail. I’m in such anxiety that I’ve fallen ill as a result. This evening the local gurukula children put on a performance for me in their school apartment. I was enchanted with the music. They performed some very sweet bhajanas with a guitar, harmonium, and flute. To some degree, it mitigated my anxiety over the Durban Ratha-yatra.
