History of the Radha Krishna Temple Album

In 1966 His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, with a handful of followers registered the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) at his humble storefront temple in New York's Lower East Side.

By 1969 the Hare Krishna mantra had spread throughout the western world, and with the help of George Harrison and the Beatles, the recording of the Hare Krishna mantra on this album reached the top 10 in record charts throughout the world. The Hare Krishna devotees were featured three times on the BBC show, "Top of the Pops," and the lead song "Govinda" also appeared on the charts at the same time.

The Hare Krishna chant had become a household word in Britain and in many other countries throughout the world.

George Harrison played harmonium and dubbed in lead and bass guitar on "The Hare Krishna Mantra" song, and the lead guitar opening on "Govinda."

The studio engineers and staff were very enthusiastic and everyone joined in spontaneously for the chorus of "The Hare Krishna Mantra."

This recording is a milestone in the history of the Krishna consciousness movement in the West.

Letter from George Harrison

Everybody is looking for KRISHNA.

Some don't realize that they are, but they are.

KRISHNA is GOD, the Source of all that exists, the Cause of all that is, was, or ever will be.

As GOD is unlimited HE has many Names.

Allah-Buddha-Jehova-Rama: All are KRISHNA, all are ONE.

God is not abstract; He has both the impersonal and the personal aspects to His personality which is SUPREME, ETERNAL, BLISSFUL, and full of KNOWLEDGE. As a single drop of water has the same qualities as an ocean of water, so has our consciousness the qualities of GOD'S consciousness... but through our identification and attachment with material energy (physical body, sense pleasures, material possessions, ego, etc.) our true TRANSCENDENTAL CONSCIOUSNESS has been polluted, and like a dirty mirror it is unable to reflet a pure image.

With many lives our association with the TEMPORARY has grown. This impermanent body, a bag of bones and flesh, is mistaken for our true self, and we have accepted this temporary condition to be final.

Through all ages, great SAINTS have remained as living proof that this non-temporary, permanent state of GOD CONSCIOUSNESS can be revived in all living Souls. Each soul is potentially divine. Krsna says in Bhagavad Gita: "Steady in the Self, being freed from all material contamination, the yogi achieves the highest perfetional stage of happiness in touch with the Supreme Consciousness." (VI,28)

YOGA (a scientific method for GOD (SELF) realization) is the process by which we puirify our consciousness, stop further pollution, and arrive at the state of Perfection, full KNOWLEDGE, full BLISS.

If there's a God, I want to see Him. It's pointless to believe in something without proof, and Krishna Consciousness and meditation are methods where you can actually obtain GOD preception. You can actually see God, and Hear Him, play with Him. It might sound crazy, but He is actually there, actually with you.

There are many yogic Paths--Raja, Jnana, Hatha, Kriya, Karma, Bhakti--which are all acclaimed by the MASTERS of each method.

SWAMI BHAKTIVEDANTA is as his title says, a BHAKTI Yogi following the path of DEVOTION. By serving GOD through each thought, word, and DEED, and by chanting HIS Holy Names, the devotee quickly develops God-consciousness. By chanting

Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna
Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare
Hare Rama, Hare Rama

I request that you take advantage of this book KRSNA, and enter into its understanding. I also request that you make an appointment to meet your God now, through the self liberating process of YOGA (UNION) and GIVE PEACE A CHANCE.

All you need is love (Krishna)

I had forgotten how deeply these bajans are engraved in my heart. This album was one (the other Every Town & Village) that held me connected from the first time I listened. Now I sing along with memories of the years spent at Prabhupada's Palace and LA temple. I am so happy to have it again on CD. It is a daily meditation. I bought one also for a gift. Wish you offered ET&V at your store! Hare Krishna and thanks for the great service.

Giovanni Codello - 04/09/2013 5 of 5 Stars!
Haribol! This album is simply great. Produced by George Harrison who also plays bass and guitars in several songs, giving a very professional and inspired touch, making every song intense, inspiring and at the same time also "poppish". I can't stop playing it out loud at home, it's just too good. Also includes three extra precious tracks: a long Maha Mantra chant featuring His Devine Grace Shrila Praphupada, His explanation of the Maha Mantra plus an Ode to His Gurudeva. Hare Krishna!
