It's the end of another month and the fifth Monthly Sankirtan Festival (MSF) is around the corner! "Sankirtan" involves sharing our beautiful spiritual tradition of bhakti-yoga with the public through outdoor book distribution and chanting.
The GTA Sankirtan Team is very happy to invite everyone to the "Halloween Special MSF" this coming Saturday, October 31st (a.k.a Sankirtan Saturday). One of the highlights of this MSF will be a special training session faciliated by HG Sankarshan das Adhikari, starting 9:00am at the Hare Krishna temple.
The atmosphere will be surcharged with Halloween spirits and, keeping with the theme, MSF volunteers will hit the streets sharing "transcendental treats" of prasadam (sweets offered to Krishna) and spiritual books. In addition, teams of devotees will also visit select residential areas to share these treats reversing the age-old tradition of "trick or treating"!
There are many ways in which you can be a part of the MSF, and it's certainly not restricted to just distributing books. You can hand out flyers and sweets, or just sing your way to ecstasy as the chanting party rocks the streets of Toronto! You could also help prepare or pack the sweets or assist with other logistics. This is indeed a golden chance to participate in a type of spiritual service that is so dear to Srila Prabhupada!
