Chanting And Dancing With Abandon (Album of photos)
Giridhari Swami: The third day of Kirtan 50 started just after Bada Haridas Prabhu’s kirtan on Dec. 30, ending at 11pm. The youth then cleaned the temple room and chanted enthusiastically until Mangala-arati. Many talented kirtaniyas continued to chant throughout the day. I was honored to be present during the kirtans of Gopi Gita Mataji and Bada Haridas Prabhu in the morning. After Gaura Arati, Niranjana Swami Maharaja, Geethika Dasi, Kirtan Premi Das, Akincana Krishna Dasa, and Kalindi Dasi chanted beautifully until 11pm. B.B. Govinda Swami Maharaja took over and ended up chanting until 2:30am on Jan. 1. That’s when things went completely wild with devotees chanting and dancing with abandon! We offer our most humble obeisances to Srila Prabhupada, who most mercifully gifted us the Holy Name on behalf of Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Hare Krishna maha-mantra ki-jaya!
