An Ancient Eastern Religious Tradition Comes of Age in the Western World.
For most people, the Hare Krishnas may be little more than people who look a bit different, chant on street corners, or distribute religious tracts in public. But this collection of essays and editorial views offers a far different picture.
This unusual history of an extraordinary religious movement is recounted from the vantage point of an insider. Mukunda Goswami shows how a universal, yet specific, spiritual culture was established in a secular setting. While breaking down stereotypical notions about Hare Krishnas, this informative book presents current events from a new angle of vision and takes a good look at the human condition through a spiritual lens.
