From Back Cover:
“Racy, eyewitness reporting on the explosive birth of spiritual consciousness in America. As a teacher, Prabhupada was fearless, patient and masterful.”
James Quina, Ph.D.
College of Education, Wayne State University
“This is a joyful, intimate chronicle of Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada’s founding of the International Hare Krishna Movement, frawn from the daily notebooks of his senior editor. Its lively, immediate style verbally films the grandfatherly “Swamiji,” the bhakti-yoga master from India, as he shepherds his American flock through the turbulent, rebellious, zany, hippy counter-culture of the sixties, The scenes: New Yorks’s Lower East Side, San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury, and Prabhupada’s won New Vrindaban Community in West Virgina hills, Here at last is a dramatic, on-the-spot portrait of a perfected holyman and his first disciples, revealing that even today the founding of a new religious consciousness is based on faith in a mahatma, a great soul.”
“The Personality of Srila Prabhupada is certainly evoked in these pages. Hayagriva has captured the exciting spirit of the wonderful, innocent days of the Krishna consciousness movement as it expanded personally from His Divine Grace….”
Satsvarupa dasa Goswami
