Last Friday afternoon, Anthony Kiedis (the lead singer of the "Red Hot Chilli Peppers") came for tea to Sri Swami Vishwananda. He is currently on tour and gave a concert later that evening in the Frankfurter Festhalle.
It was a relaxed and warm encounter, Anthony was very friendly and open. He came with his friend Beth Jeans Houghton, who has her own band and also makes wonderful music.
He visited the Hindu temple and also the chapel and when he stepped into the art atelier, he asked one of our icon painters, Rajani, who she was painting and in her excitement she first couldn't remember the name of the Saint. It was a very funny and sweet moment.
Before Anthony's departure back to Frankfurt, Swami Vishwananda gave him (amongst other things) an icon of the Divine Mother.
Here is a video of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers from summer 2011 which we especially like:
And here something to listen to of the works of Beth Jeans Houghton, very tender and beautiful:
