What Happened to the Hare Krishna’s?

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!

    I went to the website What Happened to the Hare Krsnas, & when I got to the picture of the baldhead ponytail young men & a longhaired cloth on head young woman, it said, go to this underlined group of words, so I pushed my arrow on it, & it took me to a blank white nothingness. So what did happen to the HaDLeh KrrrSHNRa people? KYaeTaNZYa BooDZa VWiSHNRoo people? Aren’t they still at places I went since 1,970s, 2,334 Stuart Str Brkly, & 2,900 Rodeo Gulch in Santa Cruz county? I went a bunch of times to the Brkly one, late 1,970s & early 1,980s, & only twice to Rodeo Gulch, probly late 1,980s. Logicly, KrrrSHNRy KRSNI with the 3 dots under RSN & line over the i, should be a blue skinned woman with blackish blue hair & pink lips, pink hand palms, & pink feet under surfaces, who is Absloute ruler of all Cosmoses, both VWaeKooRNHRTRHa SaNaaTaNa ZaaMa & MaHaTTaTTVWa. SHe’s the leader of both the always was, is, & always will be worlds without anxiety, & the temporary birth death worlds.
