Regardless of your faith, this is a fascinating documentary

As a journalist, I have had a long relationship with the Krishna movement and give it a lot of respect, even though I have another path. I learned a lot about the founder of the movement and was impressed by how articulate everyone was, whether part of ISKCON, religion scholars, or celebrities. It shows the little-known beginnings, the challenges, and how the movement counter intuitively became embedded into America's diverse culture. I think anyone would benefit from meditation and chanting from time to time and the movement's festivals are joyous.

Your Fortune

There is nothing more powerful, more beautiful. There is nothing more wonderful, more satisfying. There is nothing more real than the ocean of love of God flowing throughout the world from the presence of God's name. Reach for the top, and find your eternal self. Get real, life is wonderful beyond our imagination.

So Prabhupad we take our collective hats off to you ... Haribol! and many thanx

The documentary has a lot of interesting footage from the early days with the early players and some interviewed recently .... pretty well stitched together but no masterpiece .... the story told tho is a masterpiece and then some...
