The pace back and forth inside Govinda’s restaurant with chairs and tables to the side was very well warranted. For two reasons I felt it so. Number one is that my good friends, Parama, Mathieu, and the chief/chef of the place, Shankar did the same- pacing up and down while chanting meditatively. I rarely see them and, hence, felt that precious moments are hard to come by. I couldn’t see myself going out for a trek alone.
The number two reason was that it was extremely frigid outside. Skies were clear. The sun shone. The cold spell is on at -40 degrees Celsius including the wind factor.
Before leaving this
region we took some snap shots of the Parliament Buildings outdoors. The
buildings are handsome, but the weather-- too cold. Ottawa
It was smart that the devotees in
planned for us to have an all-out
kirtan session in the heated underground Metro, the city’s transit system. Indeed it was warm- too warm. About twenty of us made it to the depths of
heat at the Montreal Snowdon station. For the passersby we provided a perky sound,
one that some might like to sprint to.
Ultimately the sound is meant to be a serenade to Krishna.
Ah, yes, if only we could truly be in love with God!
May the Source be with you!
