Hare Krishna! Good News becomes even better!!

Much awaited Movie :

“Hare Krishna :The Mantra,The Movement and The Swami Who started it all” will be released in India on 15th Dec 2017 both in English as well as Hindi Language.

Its a breathtaking as well as heartwarming tale about how a 70 year old man, without any help, with barely any money, travelled alone on a cargo ship to the US. After suffering 2 cardiac arrests enroute, he reached the US after 37 days.  In a small storefront in New York, where the youth would take pride in being hippies, he started a worldwide mission and transformed lives of millions all over the world. Popularly known as Hare Krishna movement today, its philosophy traces its roots back to the divine teachings of Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita.

A must watch for all, who want to know potency of faith in God and how it empowers one to transcend most challenging situations in life, ultimately helping one to attain life’s ultimate fulfilment.

This is a true story of a hero, AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada who made the impossible happen, all in service to Lord Krishna.
