Journey To The Burn 08/24/08
Reporting live from Stagecoach, Nevada
We rise with warnings of high-winds, tying down and assembling our last bits of steel resolve and open-hearted excitement for the week ahead.
Last night we celebrated Krsna Janmastami in style at the Reno Buddhist Church in Reno, Nevada. The party truly began as the all-universe Prabhupada Book Distribution team of Ananda Vidya Prabhu, Murti Prabhu, and Advaita Acarya Prabhu arrived, followed by the orange splendor of Caitanya Prabhu and the mad mrdanga beats of Balarama Chandra Prabhu. As they say, the boys are back in town....
After a vibrant outing in downtown Reno doing harinama and giving out old-school pink Isopanisads to peoples of all colors and smiles, we assembled at the Buddhist church for wonderful guitar-kirtan stylings and inspiring katha, and of course, oodles of homemade prasad.
It was a sweet gathering, and we believe everyone got a Prabhupada book.
So, now one journey finishes, and another deeper journey begins, the journey of the Burn. We'll be reporting live from inside Burning Man starting tomorrow. Please stay tuned.
