Matchless Gifts now IN COLOR!!

“Matchless Gifts” is a classic short film documenting the first Hare Krishna temple in the Lower East Side of New York City in 1966.

Unfortunately this film was originally shot in black and white and the quality was very poor. It has now been digitally restored and colorized using the most advanced AI technology currently available. And the rest is quite amazing.

Watch it for yourself and if you have seen the original “Matchless Gifts” before in its grainy black and white format you will be amazed. The original version is here, actually even this one is not really the original, original is much worse than this one: https://youtu.be/0JdbRUoTz2w

“Matchless Gifts” was made only weeks after the 26 2nd Ave temple opened and shows the first disciples of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada in the middle of the “Summer of Love,” becoming totally transformed into pure devotees of Krishna under the hypotonic like power of the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra.

About the Author

My first contact with a Hare Krishna was a most merciful Mataji in Oxford Street, London who sold me a "Higher Taste" cook book in 1984 while I was on holidays there. I started seriously reading Srila Prabhupada's books in Australia 1985 and by 1986 Srila Prabhupada had convinced me "Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead" and "we should surrender to Krishna." I joined the Hare Krishnas in Perth, Western Australia in 1986. Since then I have been chanting Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, reading and distributing Srila Prabhupada's books and preaching as much as I can. That's my life and full-time occupation now really. I like it more than anything I've ever experienced before. Srila Prabhupada's books are so amazing... Even after reading them all many times they're still fresh and new. They are truly transcendental! That's it really. Now I'm just hankering to once again see the world chant Hare Krishna, dance and feast and float away in the ecstasy of Lord Caitanya's Sankirtana movement as it did in Srila Prabhupada's physical presence. Let the whole world drown in the ecstatic flood of love of Krishna!
