On August 1, 2001, The Kansas City Star reported on a Hindu celebration during which "a group of Kansas City area Hindus continuously chanted 'Hare Krishna' from morning to evening...The purpose of the joyous exercise 'is to love God with all our heart and soul.' It is based on the belief that the unconditional, selfless love of God is manifested in dancing and chanting the name of the Lord...This was the second time Nam-Yajna has been observed here."
