The sun was shining, both outside and inside—inside with devotional activities. Good phone calls dominated the day, and so too did several correspondences, which included news from two rural projects that promote organic growing and animal protection. Thank God I had little to do today with putting out fires.
Vyenkat came over. He arrived in Canada only a few months ago. He also landed himself in a job he likes. And for a devotional project, I asked him to upgrade, or fine tune, my PowerPoint on Kirtan Standards.
Positive, too, was the visit by Daniel from Ottawa, another actor for our new drama, “The Embassy.” Nicholas also came over, so we worked on the production for some time before the final glory of the day set in.
At 6:00 p.m., people were standing by Govinda’s door for an evening of cultural goodness. Rhitom Sarkar from Kolkata played the slide guitar. He was phenomenal, and backed up by a tabla player in good form. Subsequent to this, film-maker Michael Oesch presented, on a massive screen, “Walking the Wisdom of the Road”, a ninety minute documentary giving account of walkers experienced and not. Out of that time amount, twenty minutes are dedicated to The Walking Monk. https://www.festivalfocus.org/film/170496/the-walking-monk/
It had been some time since I had seen this film about introspection through walking.
“The showing was a world premiere,” announced Indresh, who, along with wife Kishori, manage the facility of Govinda’s.
Hey, the viewers loved it. Since delivering the Bhagavatam class in the morning, to meeting some walkers from the film, I found the day to be rich with bhakti.
May the Source be with you!
