A Hare Krishna in St. Gallen

Chance encounter.

A Goan Hindu from California. A Muslim from Bosnia, reborn as a Hare Krishna. A historic Christian abbey in the beautiful Swiss town of St. Gallen. What are the odds of the three converging?

Yajña Krsna Nam Das (that’s his Hare Krishna name) was born as Amir in Bosnia-Herzegovina. I was admiring the Baroque interiors of the St. Gallen Cathedral and he was quietly meditating.
