NEW YORK PRAYS: krishna & rama project
They call themselves the “UN of religion” and looking at the faces of people at the Govinda Hare Krishna Temple at 305 Schermerhorn Street in Brooklyn, New York, it is impossible not agree with the definition. People come from all over the world: Asia, Africa, Europe and obviously America.
The atmosphere is joyful while they dance and chant “Hare Krishna, Hare Rama”. During a celebration, one of the participant told me: "Our religion is simple. It is about three things: chanting and dancing, food and philosophy. Other religions are too serious, I need color and joy in my life".
