Krsna conciousness is an initiative by ISKCON, an organisation which is currently running AMAZING offering hope and life to many in the form of God and prayers under His Bhaktivedanta Srila Prabhupadhya. What's really amazing about them is that this guy, has worked with George Harrison, and many pioneer rockers of 70's, particularly the phsycadellic ones (which is indeed awesome).
"Krsna Krsna ChaitanyaAnd really that sounded like some acoustic soft rock riff which stays with you and keeps a certain smile even on the though of that. That was my first encounter to Krsna. When I came home, I tried to find that one particular. I ended up downloading a George Harrison album called "The Radha Krsna Temple" which had some REALLY good ones but not the one that I was looking for. I just can't find that particular version. But I did found some really cool facts on the Krsna conciousness movement.

For example, it all started with a Hinduism book gifted to him in Bahamas, and the quiet Beetle (George Harrison) gave some really amazing songs. Stuff like My Sweet Lord.

No, I do NOT work for this movement, but just it fascinates me that people have been praying Krsna without knowing who he is. I do not worship him, but I just respect him and wish to see what Krsna's most raw state must have been. I am currently reading the SrimadBhagwadGita, which is a dialogue between Sri Krsna and Arjuna before the war of Mahabharata. Now, I know it's mythologic, but there's historical evidence to that. Moreover, 95% of the things in the scriptures are highly personified and waaaaaaaay to metophoric. For example, the god of skies closed the clouds so that the Kauravas thought it was getting dark and time to stop the battle. However, it was just a lot of horses running therefore creating a sand cloud.
Srila Prabhupadhya has a lot to offer on Krsna. Try googling him, you'll find a HECK lot of interviews, and go through some. You'll be fascinated, perhaps as much as I am.
That's pretty fascinating litterally, cuz Sri Krsna is what we all consist of, and what we all make together.
