Truck-ti Yoga

Did a bit of browsing this morning and came across photos of my old stomping grounds in Melbourne where I spent a very happy and busy 25 years – the Hare Krishna Temple in Albert Park, Melbourne.

But wait – these images are not what you might expect. No saffron folk dancing through the streets here, but some good old down-to-earth ‘hard yakka’ as the term goes in Australia (that’s ‘hard work’ for all you off-shore readers’). Krishna devotees are practical, hard-working and multi-talented. They don’t mind getting down and dirty when the task at hand requires it.

Check them out – Hari Hunks – Jnana Samudra, Dandakaranya and Manigriva – performing Bhakti Yoga in their overalls as they do some dirty dancing with a concrete truck yesterday for the new front fence. Hard work is heart-warming!
I could sit and watch it all day…
