You can only get to Krishna through ISKCON.
About Steven Gelberg
Steven J. Gelberg was a member of ISKCON (the International Society for Krishna Consciousness) from 1970 through 1987 (ages 18-35). He was a respected teacher and author within the organization—writing, for example, a widely-used study guide to Prabhupada's edition of the Bhagavad-gita and editing book-length compilations of the guru's teachings (one concerning the concept of the spiritual master, another on the theology of mantra-meditation). He was active in public relations for the organization, appearing on TV and radio interview programs and authoring the widely distributed document "Please Don't Lump Us In" (i.e., with other cults), ISKCON's official response to anti-cult critics. He served as ISKCON's principal liaison to the world academic community, culminating in his book Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna: Five Distinguished Scholars on the Krishna Movement in the West (Grove Press, 1983). He was also ISKCON's first Director for Interreligious Affairs.
After leaving the Krishnas in 1987, Gelberg earned a Master of Theological Studies degree at Harvard Divinity School (1990). His 1992 essay "On Leaving ISKCON" received wide attention on the Internet and was later published in Edwin R. Bryant and Maria L. Ekstrand, eds., The Hare Krishna Movement: The Postcharismatic Fate of a Religious Transplant (New York: Columbia University Press, 2004).
Currently, Gelberg is a prolific fine art photographer (www.stevengelberg.com) with fourteen published books of images (www.blurb.com/bookstore). He is also working on a book concerning the relationship between art, imagination, and mysticism. He lives with his wife, Nilima Bhatia, in the San Francisco Bay Area.
