COM­PASS: WHAT­EVER HAP­PENED TO THE HARE KR­ISH­NAS?

ABC1, 6.30PM

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

This in­sight­ful doc­u­men­tary tells the story of the chil­dren in­volved in the first Hare Kr­ishna com­mu­nity to be set up in Aus­tralia. Chan­dra and Dhara grew up on a farm­stead in north­ern NSW, which be­came the main base of the move­ment from the 1960s. Speak­ing can­didly about their up­bring­ing, they talk about how life was far re­moved from mod­ern- day so­ci­ety, with the chil­dren fol­low­ing a life­style which saw them be­com­ing strict vege­tar­i­ans, ab­stain­ing from drugs and de­vot­ing them­selves to the move­ment.
