First i paid, about $16 for this book from Amazon and now today i see it's cost is $25 . Thus we see the nature of this materially oriented world at present.
Ronald Conroy/ Satyahit das , name given b Srila Prabhupada Boston, 1970.
The third section of the book describes the involvement of Beatles, especially Georg Harrison in the opening of the London temple. His influence in bringing numerous devotees into the organization is huge and significant. The book also has many rare photographs which I have not seen anywhere else. In one picture, Prabhupada is presiding over a fire-sacrifice in the San Francisco temple; in fact there are several pictures of this temple in this book.
For those who are interested in the work of Srila Prabhupada in New York, I recommend Hyagriva Dasa's "The Hare Krishna explosion: The birth of Krishna consciousness in America, 1966-1969." The style of writing of these two disciples, Swami Mukunda Goswami and Hyagriva Dasa are different. But from their personal experiences, reading Mukunda Goswami's memoir of his work in SF and Hyagriva Dasa's work in NY makes their books especially interesting.
1. The Hare Krishna explosion: The birth of Krishna consciousness in America, 1966-1969
Review written by David B. Wolf, Ph.D.
It's only missing one thing: Mukunda Goswami telling us WHY he devoted his life to this religion.
I understand that one's personal religious feelings are hard to put into words. But to me, the most interesting story would be that of why this young man persisted with Vaishnavism over 50 years, in an organization that was rife with scandal. It's a subject not really touched upon, which to me is a shame.
