Hare Krishna Celebrating a Milestone
Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna: Celebrating a Milestone
In this photo gallery, the movement known for its shaved heads and flowing robes marks 40 years of chanting its famous mantra.
On July 18, 1966, an elderly Indian monk formed a Hindu organization in New York that he called the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON)--better known as the Hare Krishnas. Open the gallery to see photos of New York's Hare Krishnas celebrating the movement's 40th anniversary with a parade down Fifth Avenue and a festival in Greenwich Village, not far from where ISKCON was born.
