More than twenty Russian sannyasins got together for a flashmob performance on Palace Square, St. Petersburg’s main square earlier this month.
The grace of the dancers in their beautiful wide colourful skirts against the backdrop of St Petersburg’s iconic buildings like the famous Winter Palace, made an amazing spectacle that attracted many onlookers.
The project, which was devoted to world peace, was approved by the local authorities and brought together meditators, musicians and others who wished to demonstrate their support for the global peace movement.
Organized by the local Osho Meditation Centre (oshocenter.ru), the flashmob performance also drew attention to the Osho White Nights Festival, which will take place just outside the city, on 9-18 June 2017.
