Feeding the Spirit: Vegetarianism and the Hare Krishna Movement

Hare Krishna followers are generally known for their sumptuous cooking and joyous dancing and singing, but few Westerners understand the history and philosophy of the movement, its influence on the rise of vegetarianism, and its relevance to animal welfare and rights. Join us for a conversation with Hindu scholar and disciple of Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Steven J. Rosen, as we explore these issues.

This Tuesday learn how vegetarianism can nurture the spirit, as well as the body.

Rosen is the author of over twenty books on Hindu-related subjects, including Holy Cow: The Hare Krishna Contribution to Vegetarianism & Animal Rights (2004). He is also the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Vaishnava Studies.
