Bhakta dasa- talent

25 09 2009

I’ve been eating at Crossways since I moved to Melbourne. As an impoverished student $5 for all you can eat is the best deal around for lunch. So when I decided to do a podcast about eating on the cheap, Crossways seemed like a good place to start.

So I organised to interview Bhakta dasa, a priest at the Hare Krishna temple in South Melbourne.

He gave me some insight into the Hare Krishna religion, and why they have projects like Crossways.

I met him at the temple in St Kilda. A beautiful old building.

It’s all you can drink too with water, cordial and lassi. You scrape your own plate, it’s a bit like being on a school camp!

This is the dining room, you share tables, so it’s a good chance to meet new people or just people-watch.
