Sri Narada Muni appeared before Srila Bhakti Dayita Madhava Maharaj in a dream and gave him mantra diksha. However, he could not remember the complete mantra upon waking up. He became very disappointed and left the house on a pilgrimage to the Himalayan mountains beyond Haridwar where he fasted for three days, continuously wailing and praying for the grace of Sri Krishna. At last, he heard a prophetic, divine voice directing him, “Go back to your place, don’t be disheartened. Your Gurudeva has appeared there. Take absolute shelter of His Lotus Feet.” Upon his return, he met with his eternal Guru, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Prabhupada and surrendered to him with one pointed devotion.
Srila Prabhupada would often comment, seeing his service to the mission, “His energy is volcanic”.
