Toronto, Ontario


After a four and a half hour flight from Vancouver, I landed back home.  Before my next trip via bus to Montreal tomorrow I had a space in the evening to stroll.  Jaya had rounds to do—meaning his prescribed number of mantras for the day,—and so he was a natural candidate for a walking companion.  I chose Rosedale.

You could feel that change of season in the air—that late summer feeling.  Crickets, obvious by their presence of sound, are in every direction.  The breezes blowing are so awesome.  In truth it is perfect for a walk.  It just couldn't be better.  I'm noticing how others feel the same way.  In one segment of Yonge Street, it is all about cafe culture, people sitting while sipping.

Here Jaya and I are walking and chanting and enjoying the soft roll of the tongue as it's shaping the formation of ultimate sound, Hare Krisha Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare / Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare.

Now with our stroll and tongue roll completed at 10:30 p.m., I still had stuff to do. I suggested to Jaya to rest up for the night.  For tomorrow's trip I have to dig up a book I tucked away which I now need.  It is a book entitled, Thirteen Plays of Bhasa, and I need to secure it for one particular drama, "The Embassy." Nicholas will be traveling with me and will be playing a lead role in it.  I require that book for the script.

So I went through the temple archives and sure enough, in the most obscure corner, in a box, was the book by Bhasa!

Set to go!

May the Source be with you!
