from the
Sri Govinda Math Yoga Centre, Ankara

And Sripad Akinchan Maharaj's write-up of this day 20 July 2003

Happy faces of Turkish devotees participating in the first nagar-sankirttan of our Mission in Ankara.

Curious onlookers watch the devotees chant in the shade of a restaurant awning—and hear the auspicious sound vibration.

"The effect of this congregational chanting of the Lord's Holy Names on the spectators is electrifying: men, women, and children converge on us from all sides. Some stare; some gape; some take photographs; others film the novel spectacle."

Read Sripad Akinchan Maharaj's write-up of this day and of other recent days of the current tour.
