  1. Oh … I’m curious but … a bit worried about the seemingly religious (?) aspect of it …… well I can’t afford the time this weekend (or the next 4 weeks) anyway, I guess 😥

    • Well, yes, they are a religion, but from my understanding, most Hare Krishna’s don’t say there is only one god and it’s their’s, as they believe that there is an all-pervading ‘entity’ (my word). I personally do not wish to become a HK, but I enjoy some of the chanting, I like understanding about bhakti yoga, and, they do very nice vegetarian and vegan food!

  2. Yes, I am for non-monotheistic ways of thinking, even though I myself am a Christian (but my paternal grandparents died as, well at least officially, Buddhists, so I might call myself half-Buddhist :P).
    I’d like to experience HK a bit, I think, but … grr, don’t think I can afford the time today :(( Anyway, first got to get started (am still in my pyjamas)!! Enjoy it if you are going (I thought you were going to the workshop today but will you be back by 5pm perhaps?).

    • Hi Marie, don’t worry about today, the local HK group meets up in Aber about once a month, but tonight they have a visiting special person (not sure what they are called!). Yes, yoga workshop has finished in time for me to attend tonight. Alyson
