ISKCON devotees can be found singing the Hare Krishna mahamantra on the streets of most cities of the world. This is a tradition that was founded by Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu who brought the congregational chanting of the Hare Krishna mantra from people’s homes out to the streets, where people could benefit spritually by hearing the Lord’s holy names. Singing the holy names of God has been a spiritual practice in India for thousands of years. Following in Lord Chaitanya’s footsteps, Srila Prabhupada made the Hare Krishna maha-mantra a worldwide phenomenon.
Most people around the world have seen and heard Hare Krishna devotees singing Hare Krishna and dancing in the streets—from Leningrad to Tokyo, Sydney to London, New York to Kolkata. This singing of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra is recommended in the ancient spiritual texts of India as the best way to understand the Divine in this modern age.
At ISKCON Pune CAMP, we go out on the streets daily 7:00am to 7:30am and Sing the names of Krishna.
You are welcome to join us when we are on the streets. If you would like to invite us to your Neighbourhood to perform Street Kirtana, please contact us.
