To usher in this "auspicious" new, monthly series of ISKCON spiritual practices - popularised by the Beatle George Harrison's use of the Hare Krishna chant on his1970 track My Sweet Lord - monks and yoga enthusiasts joined Shala owner Yogi Lee Das for music, 'Kirtan' storytelling, chanting and a sanctified 'Prasadam' vegetarian dishes.

Mr Das, 38 of Prestatyn, said: "This is a huge deal for our community, to have six yogi monks in our area was striking and a uplifting moment."
