When, where and how did you come into contact with the Hare Krishna Movement?
Summer, 2007, after high school. Went to a drum circle advertised in the paper with a couple friends on bicycles and couldn't find it on the beach, so we kept looking and looking until we heard faint cymbals and trance-inducing drumming. There it was, a roaring kirtan, though I never had any exposure to any culture but my own American upbringing. Unrelated to the original event we were looking for, we chanted and danced with them for an hour until they settled down with prasadam and a Bhagavad Gita reading, all of which soothed my soul and stimulated my dreadlocked head. So I just stayed in touch ever since.
