These are my day’s bright spots:
The morning’s kirtan took us all over the temple room. I added some new moves, new steps to the dance.
Being in Toronto only for the day, so I was asked to give the class. Topic – baby Krishna and the witches.
I confess to not have a taste for South Indian cuisine, but the kichari (rice, dhal, veggies) – the best!
Spike, an old friend for many years, came to visit me. A good talk, ever reinforcing for both of us.
My dear god-brother, Bhumna, also came to visit. He is very learned as a historian; always stimulating.
A Zoom call amongst some of us leaders discussed concerns, putting us into a serious mode.
At 5 pm it was Zoom again, this time, a Gita Chat. Chapter 14 is all about the three energies.
I dug into a second stab at prasadam – squash veg made with love by super cook, Dwarkanath.
Ruslan joined me for a walk through the Rosedale neighbourhood at prime spring season – daffodils stunning.
Ruslan is from Ukraine, takes English classes, and is picking up on words really fast. I cheer him.
Took time to pack bags for tomorrow’s trip to Montreal where a kirtan retreat takes place.
Had another read of Shyamasundar’s book, Chasing Rhinos with the Swami.
Chanted my Gayatri mantras as a way to complete a day of devotion.
My thoughts go out to Prema Bhakti, whose funeral was today in Vancouver. Regards to husband, Narada.
