Bhajan & Prasadam For All!

11:20:00 PM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav) , , , No comments

During the weeks leading up to second annual Bhajan & Prasadam Festival, regular announcements were made at the weekly Sunday Feasts that the Hare Krishna Temple would be the place to be when it comes to ending off the year on the right note. True to form, on December 31st, Toronto's Hare Krishna temple reverberated with the blissful sounds of kirtan and the smells of tantalizing prasadam filled the air.

It all started early in the morning as a small group of devotees gathered to begin the kirtan. It turns out, CBC Television decided to drop by to take some footage for a news piece that they were working on about how different spiritual groups were planning on celebrating the new year.
As the day continued the crowd grew and the kirtan also picked up. During the break periods, devotees were greeted with delicious prasadam. The kirtan reached a feverish pace by the end of the night and all the assembled devotees then headed out for the exciting annual maha-harinama at City Hall. The next day, the kirtan continued as preparations began for the annual Prabhupada Festival.

A lot of hard work was exerted to make the second annual Bhajan & Prasadam Festival a success and a hearty thanks goes out to all the devotees who helped to make it happen. We look forward to seeing everyone at next years festival.
