Can You Feel the Love Tonight?

I had been fixed on the idea of having a little kirtan darbar at our home for a long time – just some friends coming together to celebrate the divine. In London things like this were a lifestyle, there was one every other week in some place or other with all styles of singing/ instruments/ food (!!) and I’ve missed having that environment.
...
So over the long weekend during Divali, Hargobind and I invited some of our friends over – and it was just so nice to have the sanggat in our living room, singing Guru’s praises, led by some amazing kirtanis – I’m so thankful to everyone who came; our home is blissed out with all your love!!

The one person who did most of the work but didn’t get captured in any other photos– Mataji! It’s her stressing about the details that made the event :)

the weather was lovely so we served dinner outside

some of the lads from the Redecorating Committee - Boo!

the lovely Harsohela and Gurprakash with our dear Zafar

In hopes of many such darbars in the future…minus the redecorating portion, of course – guys I don’t think my room can handle the trauma of yet another repositioning! Next time I’m going to bolt down anything that can be moved – and position Zafar to guard the door :)
...
Spread the love and keep the light shining until we meet again.
