Better Late Than Never... New Year's Eve 2009!

5:20 AM By Keshav , , , 8 comments

Well, it took us a number of weeks, but we finally have a video report of the wild and crazy New Year's Eve maha-harinama that took place on the night of December 31st, 2009. Led by Bhaktimarga Swami, over 75 kirtan-lovers burst out from the temple, hopped on the subway at Rosedale station and chanted their way to City Hall to join the tens of thousands of revellers. The kirtan was amazing and it was more than just a memorable evening. New blog contributer, Rishi Kumar, put together this wonderful video report! Check out his creation:
