Halifax, Nova Scotia
The current temperatures in some
parts of Canada are unseasonably warm and out east, in Nova Scotia, we are
enjoying the benefits of this favourable climate with 20⁰ Celsius in our midst.
The situation compelled a number of us to absorb as much vitamin D as possible
by hitting the trails that take us through hard and softwood trees, lakes and
ponds and rocks at both sides, only to be interrupted by the occasional
development site. For me it was a straight trek – fast but not furious trek –
and I had a few amigos to accompany me along the way.
I really didn’t want to stop but
previous arrangements and scheduling forced me off the trail. It was a pleasant
Among today’s commitments of
visitations, and a meaningful meeting, was a visit to the Vedanta Ashram
Society, on Cork St. where my musical team, Mahadev, Annapurna and I engaged in
kirtan, a speech and a rally of all attendees to get up off their feet
to sing and dance. From there we mobilized our group to the ISKCON program at
the Atlantic School of Theology.
Bhakti Prabhava Swami, who was
there just a few weeks ago, went into the building, which is an actual church
shared by three Christian denominations, and said, “This is first class.” I
couldn’t agree with him more. It has great acoustics for kirtan. There
is also an extra room for Sunday School, and it’s situated right next to the harbour
so the view is wonderful.
May the Source be with you!
