    Author of Chasing Rhinos With The Swami

    Over the past 60 years, nearly every aspect of the Beatles’ collective and individual lives has been explored in great detail. But what about the Hare Krishnas? Till now, no one has chronicled Bhaktivedanta Swami and the Krishna devotees’ profound and enduring impact on the Fab Four!

    What about elementary penguins, Here Comes The Sun, Give Peace A Chance, Instant Karma, My Sweet Lord, Give Me Love, and another dozen of George’s songs?

    Rocketed into the stratosphere of magic, fame and fortune, the Boys asked, “Why me, Lord?

    Who am I? What’s the purpose of life? Where am I going?” From 1968 onwards, the London-based Krishna people lived in the Beatles’ orbit, feeding them spiritual information that subtly shaped their world-views and many of their greatest songs.

    Chasing Rhinos With The Swami, Shyamasundar Das’s three-volume masterpiece, fills this huge and important missing gap in the Beatles’ vast biography. In 1,400 pages and with 108 never-seen-before Beatles/Krishnas photos, Shyamasundar describes in eye-witness detail the Krishna devotees’ massive influence on the world’s most famous band.
