ISKCON Scarborough presents- Harinam Sankirtan on a cruise
By the mercy of Srila Prabhupada and for the pleasure of the devotees, ISKCON Scarborough has arranged a 5 hour boat cruise on Lake Ontario for holiday Monday September 6th 2010 at 12.30 pm.
We hope to enjoy the great summer weather while we relish sumptuous prasadam and immerse in the overwhelming ecstatic waves of kirtan in association of devotees.
As a bonus, we'll have the best seats in the house as we enjoy the Annual Toronto International Air Show.
Sublime kirtan will be lead by Gaura Shakti Group and Ajamil prabhu
Gaura-Shakti is a Toronto-based kirtan yoga group with experienced musicians hailing from all around the world including places like Russia, India and Canada.
They present beautiful and melodious kirtan accompanied by beautiful instruments like the harmonium, mrdanga-drum, bamboo flute, bass guitar and more. Gaura-Shakti will help take you on a journey to ancient India’s mystical past during this rendezvous aboard the ship.
Ajamil prabhu is world renowned for his ecstatic kirtans and will spiritually entertain us during this cruise.
Please join us for a spiritually blissful day.
