Samkirtan means singing the Glories of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna. In the picture on the opposite page, we see Kirtan as it was performed on the shore of the Pacific in March, 1967. Leading the Kirtan is Tridandi Goswami A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, founder of the International Society For Krishna Consciousness. The San Francisco Radha Krishna Temple holds Kirtan at the beach every Tuesday night, for the pleasure of the Lord and the benefit of all living beings.
