Canada Day Harinama! - July 1, 2014 - 1pm to 5pm

9:02:00 AM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav)

What can be a better way for devotees to celebrate Canada Day than going out on the Fourth Annual Canada Day Harinama (outdoor chanting and dancing)?  It has been our Hare Krishna tradition to celebrate Canada Day by hitting the streets with chanting and dancing!

The main goal of this event is to invite as many people as possible to the upcoming RATHA-YATRA (FESTIVAL OF INDIA) by distributing cards! It will be an opportunity for us to create a buzz for the upcoming festival!

Let's all head out to the streets of downtown and share the sweet sounds of kirtan with everyone as a perfect gift for Canada Day

Everyone is asked to meet at the temple at 1:00pm, especially for those who would like to get dressed up, have gopi-dots painted, tilak, etc. and then head out at 2pm.

We will update everyone as to where we will head out! The harinama will take place either at Yonge-Dundas Square or the Waterfront!

What to Bring:
- TTC subway fare
- bottle of water
- your SMILE :)
- hat or sunglasses (if you like)

Please dress in the best vaishnava (devotional) attire so we can present Krishna Consciousness in the most beautiful way. Prasadam will be provided for all of devotees after we come back, (by around 5:00pm).

How You Can Help:
- dance in a coordinated style
- give out Ratha-Yatra cards
- distribute books
- give out lollipops
- hold Mahamantra banner or balloons
- take pictures and videos
- help to cook for Harinam participants
- or just wave and smile at people! :)
