KUALA LUMPUR - Had a very wonderful in Kirtan Mela Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Sitting up close to BB Govinda Swami when he led Kirtan was a dream come true. Having the super talented Surya Nandini Mataji sing and play her Clarinet/Saxophone when I was **leading the Kirtan was a DREAM COME TRUE.
Best part of the whole experience was BB Govinda Swami's personal instructions to me after dancing like a madman in Maharaj's and Ojasvi Prabhu's last Kirtans.
"You should CHANT when you dance. Dancing without singing the Holy Names is more or less like a disco or some hard-core physical exercise. Whether playing instruments, dancing or sitting during Kirtans, one MUST CHANT otherwise, our so-called expertise in dancing or playing instruments is irrelevant and unattractive in Krsna's eyes."
