Alternative Spring Break March 22, 2011

Posted by AR in Uncategorized.

This year Krishna House headed south for our annual Alternative Spring Break trip.  First stop, ISKCON Miami, where we were able to participate in a colorful Festival of Chariots sponsored by the local Hare Krishna temple and restaurant in Coconut Grove.  The following day we took part in a 12-hour kirtan festival at the temple which consisted of chanting and dancing all day long!

We volunteered throughout the weekend cutting up veggies in the kitchen and on Monday, we were put in charge of cleaning the entire temple, restaurant, bathrooms, and temple grounds!  Because we have learned that devotional service purifies the heart, we eagerly accepted the challenge and the following day we left for the Florida Keys feeling content that we made a significant contribution.  The next two days of R&R in the sunny keys consisted of snorkeling, swimming, camping, picnicking, and sunrise kirtans on the beach!

The Krishna House Alternative Spring Break trip is open to all Bhakti Academy students and volunteers at Krishna House and Krishna Lunch.  If you would like to get involved and take advantage of the many opportunities afforded by the Bhakti Academy, please do not hesitate to contact us.  Hare Krishna!
