This is just something I have been thinking about and would like to hear the thoughts of others. I live in America.
The message of The Bhagavad-Gita is applicable to everyone no matter who they are or where they come from.
America especially needs Krishna and The Bhagavad-Gita. Desperately.
Here is my question, and I do not mean to offend, wouldn't it be a good idea to try promoting Krishna Consciousness in the U.S. by using a more western approach? I understand the significance of wearing robes and dhotis, etc. but I have found that in my discussions with people in America about Krishna Consciousness that they tend to view it as strictly an "Indian" thing because of how devotees dress.
Wouldn't tasteful, western style clothes work better in passing out literature, books and engaging others in discussion?
Also, it is my hope that my Blog listed below will attract those unfamiliar with Krishna Consciousness and The Bhagavad-Gita.
