Daily Photo Theme - Blast from the Past Thursday

Another day another theme, one of my favorites Blast from the Past Thursday, hashtagged  #blastfromthepast.

Unlikely conversation in San Diego
Scanned slide - 1970 or 1971

Nichiren Buddhists chant the Lotus Sutra
Nam Myoho Renge Kyo
Photo taken in California in the 1970s
It was a popular movement, the chant even appeared in the movie The Last Detail

Remember dryer spinning?
Never tried it myself but it was popular

Alcatraz Island in the 1970s  occupied by Native Americans
No tours in those days

Before Occupy Wall Street
Native American protest in Canada 1970s

Not exactly Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters but inspired by them

More members of the International Society for Krishna Consiousness
I regret never going for the free meals they would provide. I was a poor sailor at the time
and would have appreciated a vegetarian meal and some chanting.
