1966--Music and meditation one afternoon at UC Berkeley

It seemed as if you could happen upon just about anything  on the Berkeley campus.  One afternoon, a couple of singing and guitar-playing buskers showed up just outside the Student Union.  They did their thing and earned a few dollars.  Then a circle of people quietly sat down on the pavement, forming a circle.  Out came a lit candle, incense and a zither.  The participants assumed the lotus position and chanted softly.  It was just a typical day on the Berkeley campus.

For one meditator, no shirt, no shoes, mellow companions and a friendly dog.
