Vermantra Fundarising event: The annual community 12 hour chant fest in Burlington, VT raised funds for Nandi Animal Rescue and Call and Response Foundation’s prison program. Chants were led by community leaders, a potluck meal was served throughout the day and an all volunteer crew ran sound, cleaned up and made it happen! Thank you to all!!
