hare krishna hare hare

July 19, 2011

i’m kind of bummed to have missed out on the heyday of the hare krishnas. their presence for me is just american cultural lore- the gatherings in public spaces, the chanting, the music, the brightest marigold robes, yellow books, following prabhupada around the globe. i can only really relate to george harrison’s my sweet...
