This book spans a period of ten years. It has been assembled from the vantage point of an insider. From 1988 to 1998 the Hare Krishna movement was developing in ways hidden from people. Twenty years after its founding in 1966, ISKCON had become a fact of life. We were here to stay. In my view, our movement would influence the world. It was in this historical context that I decided to publish the following collection of 'insider' essays and editorial views, which, for a time, were strictly confidential. 'Inside' is a look into how we saw things from the inside out.
Michael Cremo and Mukunda Goswami outline a challenging new vision of humankind and the natural world, revealing how a spiritual approach can save humanity from the environmental catastrophe we have been heading towards. They contend that real solutions to our current environmental problems will be implemented only through a shift in human consciousness and an awakening to the spiritual dimension of this crisis. The authors touch on a wide range of topics, including the earth's threatened wildlife, shrinking rainforests, eroding soil, proliferation of trash, and toxic waste disposal. The negative environmental impact of meat consumption is also uncovered--deforestation, agricultural inefficiency, and air and water pollution. Its in-depth exploration of history, scientific theory, and the metaphysics of karma offers concerned earth-watchers a spiritual blueprint for creating a better world.
