Dr. Daniel Coleman, associate editor of Psychology Today and author of The Varieties of Meditative Experiences, after studying the meditational techniques of members of the Krishna consciousness movement, said, "I found the Hare Krishna devotees to be well-integrated, friendly, and productive human beings.
