Festival of Chariots ~ Venice

8:02 AM PDT on August 6, 2007


Venice ~ CA 

Festival of the Chariots was yesterday, one of our favorite times every year for the free food and flowing saris. Here's our story on the event from last year.


That's Ray Cappo/Ragu, the former singer of Krishna core band Shelter, giving a very inspiring speech on life and how all religious/spiritual beliefs are valid ways to Allah/God/Krishna and not judged by these Vedic devotees. We rapped for a while, the guy's energy is inspiring and incredible.

I even drank the punch at the free buffet......HAREHARERAMSITASITARAMDEVARAMHAREHARE! It was tasty.

Like a peaceful, mellow Hamas, the Krishnas were able to feed the needy and hungry community of the Westside for free, seemingly more than Villaraigosa's administration has done for the homeless and hungry.
