The Radha Krsna Temple 1971



The Radha Krsna Temple is a 1971 album of Hindu devotional songs recorded by the UK branch of the Hare Krishna movement – more formally, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) – who received the artist credit of "Radha Krishna Temple (London)".

The album was produced by George Harrison ( The Beatles ) and released on the Beatles' Apple record label. It compiled two hit singles by the Temple devotees, "Hare Krishna Mantra" and "Govinda", with other Sanskrit-worded mantras and prayers recorded with Harrison from July 1969 onwards.

The recordings reflected Harrison's commitment to the Gaudiya Vaishnava teachings of the movement's leader, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who had sent devotees from San Francisco to London in 1968.
The success of the Temple's first single, "Hare Krishna Mantra", helped popularise the Hare Krishna

After its initial release, the album was reissued on the Spiritual Sky label and by Prabhupada's Bhaktivedanta Book Trust, often with the new title Goddess of Fortune. Apple officially reissued The Radha Krsna Temple on CD in 1993, and again in 2010, with the addition of two bonus tracks.
