Download Krishna in Ukraine - A spiritual revolution

Perhaps nowhere in the world have people so eagerly adopted the spiritual practices of Krishna consciousness as in Ukraine, formerly part of the Soviet Union. Through first-hand accounts, relive the struggles that were commonplace in the lives of the Ukrainian Hare Krishna devotees during Soviet rule.

Despite the threat of imprisonment and torture, they worked to spread Chaitanya's message of bhakti yoga. Holding secret meeting in their houses and hiding their books when the KGB searched their homes, the devotees continued to spread Krishna consciousness in secret until the U.S.S.R. fell. Then, nervously but with excitement, they started to spread Krishna consciousness openly, wearing saris and dhotis, chanting in public, and established temples.

Niranjana Swami describes the growth of the Ukrainian Hare Krishna movement, from the arrival of the first devotees in the late 80s and the early underground preaching, to the many temples and huge annual festivals held today.

The difficult past of the Ukrainian devotees and their struggles and determination under an oppressive system only serves to glorify their accomplishments. Today there are dozens of temples and thousands of members.

This video is an amazing testament to the spiritual potency of Srila Prabhupada, who by his visit to Moscow in 1971 ignited a spiritual revolution in the U.S.S.R.

Approximately 35 minutes.
