Hare hip-hop: Krishna b-boy breakdance vid breaking internet (VIDEOS)
Who knew that Hare Krishnas are so good at breakdancing?

A Facebook video showing monks from the religion tearing up the dancefloor to a hip-hop beat has so far earned 2.4 million views.

This footage was shot and uploaded three days ago at the Iskcon Temple in Italy after the Kirtan of Shri "Priyavrata Das” ceremony.
