Chinese Students

The day before I left Hong Kong I did a program with young Hong Kong students at our temple downtown. They listened attentively to the philosophy and within minutes were chanting and dancing in great bliss. For fun, some of them dressed up in dhoties and saris.

One Hundred Curious Souls

Yesterday we held a festival program in Dunedin, near to the university. One hundred curious souls came and were treated to our philosophy, kirtan and delicious prasadam.
