A bunch of ragtag supporters took ancient #Indic wisdom mainstream in < 10 yrs. A CAGR of a 1000% perhaps. Something that puts Silicon Valley startups to shame. 5/n

Who would’ve thought #TheBeatles would sing “Guru Brahma, Guru Vishnu, Guru Deva, Maheshwara…” to thousands a concert 💪🏽. Watch this -

When skirts were getting shorter, faux #feminism emerging, & women forcing themselves to “look more modern”; a bunch of Americans understood that true liberation was of the Mind. 9/n #ISKCON #HareKrsna

Amazing personal learnings for the project I run @IndiaPrideProj… on how you build Pride around your cultural heritage. How you Execute and Scale. 15/n… #BringOurGodsHome #ISKCON #HareKrsna
The 60’s and 70’s saw India head out with a begging bowl (because of failed socialist policies)… 16/n…
