A Little Taste of Frostburn 2008!


by Bhakta-Chris

This past weekend a group of intrepid Brajbasis (Nitai, Maha-Laksmi, Mandali, Caitanya, Kesava Acarya,Yaitza, Rasikananda, his pa Akhilananda, and myself) braved the sub-freezing temps and snow-covered ground of the average American winter to participate in Frostburn 2008, at Cooper’s Campground just outside of Slippery Rock, PA and the holy tirtha of Butler, PA.

The Frostburn event is a regional offshoot of the premier counter-cultural event of our time, the Burning Man festival, of which devotees, via the Krishna Camp, have been a big part of the past few years. (Check out the video here!).

The Frostburn event is something new for the Burner community. It’s a chance to fully express some wonderful and unique artistic and creative sensibilities, but in the austerities of a winter climate rather than the blazing heat and swirling dust of the Nevada desert.

One of the mottoes of the Burner community is that “No one is a spectator” Everyone who is involved must offer something tangible, positive, and uplifting. We did our part with some creamy subji, ecstatic gulabjamuns, winter-time yoga sessions in the sun, a little kirtan, and our usual joy. Check out the photo album by clicking here!
