Go Go Go Govinda

By reciting one Hare Krishna mantra a child is chosen to be Krishna. The child stands in one spot which represents the spiritual world. The other children stand in a line about forty yards (35m) away which indicates the material world. They are devotees trying to advance and reach the spiritual world. Krishna turns His back to the other children and says “Go, Go, Go, Govinda!” He says “Go” as many times as He wants, and during that time the devotees run towards Him to try to reach Him. Then Krishna sends back to the starting line (that is, to the material world) anyone He sees moving when He turns around. Then He turns His back and chants “Go, Go, Go, Govinda!” the game goes on in way until a child succeeds in touching Him before being seen. That child plays Krishna in the next game.
