    The purity of the Prabhupada's missionary activity and his absolute conviction in the chanting of the Hare Krishna Mahamantra. Prabhupada sent some of this disciples to London and they met and George and he was attracted by their faithfulness to chanting the Hare Krishna Mahamantra.

    By the way, the very name of Krishna means "ALL ATTTRACTIVE" and therefore, it is not surprising that he was attracted to Krishna.

    From the book "Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead".

    Words 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)

    The Beatles went over to India to find enlightenment. Everybody got bored with it except George. He jumped in with both feet.

    He and the other Beatles went through different phases of trying to "find themselves"; sadly, the ones that are still alive are still searching, and unless they accept Jesus as their Savior, they will continue to be lost
