Krishna in St Petersburg

I was in St Petersburg in late 2016 when walking along a canal towards the local tourist market and my friend and I stumbled upon a satsang in the snow.

Yes it was quite unexpected, some Hari Krishna devotees in a bliss filled chant dancing and singing outside a big hall.

Sometimes the most unexpected events stumble across you when your on the road. As you can see in the video these devotees were in ecstatic joy.

This was the true spirit of satsang. To achieve such joy of spirit one must let go of the ego and embrace the feelings of joy that flow within as the chant envelopes your consciousness.

We in the west are sometimes not ready due to self consciousness to do this.
