In 1967, after three years in the Marines, I became a disciple of Prabhupad, the leader of the Hare Krishna movement. And I felt that I had joined a revolution. I decided that the movement was, if successful, going to significantly change American culture.
War of the Soul contributes to that cultural revolution by presenting Bhagavat socialism through Krishna's Gita.
From 1967 to 1970, I was one of the senior leaders of Prabhupad’s organization, and then he transitioned me into a middle management role.
For the next four decades, I continued to serve actively in his organization until my retirement. In addition to managing several of Prabhupad’s temples, I also pursued a moderately successful career in information systems.
Scattered throughout the 1970s and 1980s, I spent a few years studying Sanskrit, Bengali, Hindi, Farsi, and the history of the Bhagavat culture in India.
I started War of the Soul in 2005, put it aside in 2007, and reworked it in 2016-17.
I welcome queries and feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
