Details: This year’s Kingsday Harinam party in the streets of Amsterdam will be 200 strong and counting. Although the proportions of the Harinam party to the party-goers are slightly uneven, everyone who comes into contact with the Harinam party will be given the mercy of the holy name– whether they like it or not!
Amsterdam - known for being one of the largest street markets in the world, orange coloured everything, and its yearly Kingsday festival with music concerts, street performances, and lots of intoxicated people. So what better way to spread Krishna consciousness, than to bring it to a large mass of people, in their time of celebration? This ingenious event has been the foundation of the Vyasa Puja celebrations of Kadamba Kanana Swami for many years. Two busses from Radhadesh, ISKCON Belgium temple bring disciples of Kadamba Kanana Swami to the event, and are joined with locals and visitors at the Amsterdam temple to start the Harinam procession.
Bugles, djembes, mrdangas and plenty of energy will be amongst the sights to see while Kadamba Kanana Swami and crew jam through the streets.
