Video: "B-Boying" Hare Krishnas in Moscow!

12:05:00 AM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav)

We recently received a "Google News Alert" about an article on MensXP.com - a website targeted to the "modern Indian man".  The article, which can be seen by clicking here, highlights a unique video of devotees dancing at what we believe is the ISKCON Moscow temple (devotees are welcome to clarify by commenting) in kirtan and goes on to say:

While dancing during praying to god is pretty popular in India, especially during jagrans and in temples, what is not is b-boying! One such religious gathering at a Radha Krishna temple turned rather entertaining when some ISKCON monks took to b-boying during a bhajan recitation.  

If you have ever been to a Hare Rama Hare Krishna Temple, you’d know the atmosphere there brims with infectious energy and tempo, and people are encouraged to shed their inhibitions and surrender themselves to god. Dancing and swaying is quite common here but b-boying just takes it to another level. Well, dance has no religion. 

Watch them perform their killing breakdance moves to the music of bells and chants of Hare Rama Hare Krishna in this video! The B-Boying boys!
