Burnaby, British Columbia

Sun/Fun Day

New initiate, Mukunda Madhava, sent me a pic of his five-day old baby, Hari Priya. Sweet indeed. It is the hope of her parents (Nancy is her mother) that naturally Hari Priya will grow up to be a strong devotional human being.

Mukunda, Vallabha and I went for that early stroll to the nearby Chinese/Punjabi farming district. There is it peaceful and calm.

By noon, the Vancouver areas was heating up and I found the temple room a trite stuffy, but visitors were anticipating a recharge, spiritually, at the Sunday Open House, which included chanting, darshan (deity viewing), and feasting. Today, visitor Gauranga, from India, delivered the class on bhakti. Well received.

My book, “The Saffron Path,” sold like crazy. In fact, I ran out of copies, which is a good sign that congregants are eager to learn about walking adventures and walking purification. Walking has many benefits, and one of them is the physio and mental achievements. It is a time for reflection on the self, in as much as it is a time for admiring the scenery around; which is merely a reflection of Krishna’s power.

The night had clearly come upon us, yet enthusiastic walkers in the form of Karen and Sakshi, who are expecting a baby soon, wanted to brave the mosquitoes. We settled for a drive to a nearby set of swings. What a perfect way to keep the little vampires from drawing blood.

May the Source be with you!
