I have learned a lot about cults on this site and cannot thank you all enough for helping me get a sense of what is going on with my JW acquaintance. As it turns out, another friend of mine told me she goes to the Hare Krishna temple. She is a wonderful person, and we have been spending time together having long conversations. She says she is "not a very good devotee."
Can any of you provide info/resources that will help me learn to what extent the Hare Krishnas have any cultic similarities to the JW's? I don't see much showing up on Google. My friend says attending the temple doesn't mean she has to go all the way with the shaved head, robe, etc., but I would like to find out if she is unwittingly becoming involved with something harmful, the way people gradually get manipulated by the JW's. I'd like to find the other side of the story with Hare Krishnas the way JWN provides the other side of the story with JW's. Can anyone here help me out? I welcome resources as well as discussion.
