Underground Sound

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 Ottawa region we took some snap shots of the Parliament Buildings outdoors.  The buildings are handsome, but the weather-- too cold.

It was smart that the devotees in Montreal 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 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!
