The Hare Krishna People HD 1080p Film
We are continuing on the project to restore all the original Hare Krishna films and videos to modern high definition 1080p format. In this format the Hare Krishna films have a new life and look great on modern screens and devices. So try watching this film. I am sure you will become uplifted and inspired by it.
“The Hare Krishna People” is the definitive 1970’s documentary film on Srila Prabhupada’s world-wide Hare Krishna Movement. This is a beautiful film, now even more beautiful due to digital restoration. It shows a cross-section of the activities of ISKCON, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, in the mid 1970’s. At this time the Hare Krishna movement was exploding all over the world, thus the documentary is subtitled: “The Hare Krishna Explosion.” It is a first-class film showing the activities of the Hare Krishna devotees all over the world in temples, on the streets chanting Hare Krishna, on their rural farm communities and also features the Hare Krishna children and the schools, gurukuls.
About the Author
Madhudvisa dasa 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!
How much time will I need to become an unalloyed devotee of Lord Sri Krishna. Prabhuji you said that I have to chant at least 16 rounds of the HARE KRISHNA Mahamantra daily but I could not even do that.I am very lusty and a storehouse of all bad habits.I am a debauchee of the lowest type and I have only bad habits How will I accomplish chanting
Your Humble servant
Hare Krishna Prabhu
We will never be pure unalloyed devotees of Krishna if we can’t even surrender to the basic points, chanting at least 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna mantra every day, strictly following the four regulative principles and reading Srila Prabhupada’s books at least 1-2 hours a day. It’s not that we can just call ourselves devotees and go to the temple on Sunday and become devotees. Devotee means surrendering to a bona fide spiritual master, a pure devotee of Krishna, and being guided by him, serving him, surrendering to him. Without this there is no way we will ever become unalloyed pure devotees of Krishna. Not possible.
