When the Sun Shines
When the Sun Shines tells the story of how Hare Krishna came to Britain in the 1960s. It is a touching and personal account of innocence and spiritual adventure at the dawn of the Age of Aquarius.
A historical account of ISKCON’s beginnings and development in Britain, starting with Srila Prabhupada’s early days in San Francisco, his sending of six young disciples to England, and these disciples’ first experiences in London – their first harinamas, their serendipitous meetings with various celebrities in the underground, music, and pop culture scenes, their historic meeting with the Beatles, Prabhupada’s encouragement and finally his arrival to solidify his movement there. The story takes us through the development of ISKCON in London (including the purchase of Bhaktivedanta Manor), Scotland, and Wales, and culminates in a touching account of Srila Prabhupada’s last visit to London in 1977, before he returned to Vrndavana for his final pastimes.
