Lord Caitanya in the Land of Islam

Indradyumna Swami: I had many wonderful and amazing experiences while living in Vrindavan the past 4 months but yesterday’s program in the United Arab Emirates was no less profound or enlightening, for yesterday in Dubai we installed the deity form of the Lord. It wasn’t the first time and it won’t be the last; a number of devotees living here have deities. But just the fact that another two sets of Gaura Nitai deities were officially installed in the heartland of Islam was overwhelming for me. There are obviously restrictions here; mainly that we cannot preach Krsna consciousness to people of Muslim faith. But as our joyful kirtan in a small apartment merged with the sound of loudspeakers calling the faithful to the local mosques, my hair stood on end.
