I look forward to Saturday primarily because in the afternoon we go to High Park for “the prime benediction for humanity at large.” That quote is from Chaitanya’s written testimony regarding chanting. Chanting is the way to approach the public for bringing about the best results.

Beginning at 1 p.m. a group of us are huddled near Colbourne Lodge for a chanting session where dancing took place, which really attracted attention. One woman was walking, stopped, came over and joined. She lit up. This happened to several people.

A father with his daughter was also magnetically pulled in and, when walking in our direction with his daughter in hand, didn’t see the curb, missed his step and balance. Two women were walking past us, but one stopped and began to snap her fingers to the beat of drums, her hips swaying. She was smiling. She suddenly realized her companion moved on some metres and then came to a halt looking disapprovingly to her dancing friend who then swiftly dashed off to catch up. People were loving the chanting. Some did.

Our kirtan group terminated with the train ride through the park. We enjoyed the scenery but couldn’t help ourselves to play our instruments for the last leg of the ride. Other passengers began to groove with us. It’s all full. The great monk, Chaitanya, said it right.
