Rev. Jana Drakka, a priest in the Soto Zen lineage of Buddhism, offers a Buddhist blessing (metta sutta chant, also know as "The Great Dharani" or Lovingkindness Meditation) on May 22, 2010, at Harvey Milk Plaza, in honor of Harvey Milk's birthday celebration in San Francisco's Castro district. The blessing was offered at an organized protest of the proposed sit/lie ordinance that would make it against the law to sit or lie on a public sidewalk between the hours of 7 am and 11 pm. Harvey Milk led the effort in the successful repeal of a similar law in the 1970s that was used against gay men in the Castro, infringing on their freedom of assembly.
