Rock album-Nice but dead
It exists, but where can it be found?
Here are all the links I can find which mention it.
 - Says that it starts with machine gun fire and has the lyrics "Guru, guru on the wall, who is the heaviest of them all? Whose disciples are the worst? Who could I give my last shirt? --I once saw a guru, a fantastic dancer, Holy gangster, carefree prankster,"
 this just mentions it in passing.
 This book also mentions that it opens with the sound of machine gun and that it starts with the lyrics:
"Did you ever see a guru behind a gun?
Did you ever see a guru flying a plane?
Thin as a cane? Looking insane?
Did you ever see a guru driving a car,
Porsche or Mercedes? Singing in a bar?"
This is driving me nuts. If you could help me to a recording I would be so happy. (Give me a link on my talk page.)
He also made an album called Nothing To Lose But All To Gain. (audio link!) http://inkmathematics.uctiv.net/?p=117
That album says this on the on the back "As one of the eleven gurus or leaders of the world-wide Hare Krsna movement, he lives a strictly controlled life as a celibate monk in the renounced order known as sannyasa. These songs, although sung in simple english language, run deep with spiritual meaning. They contain the essence of Vedic wisdom and are therefore not only very entertaining and pleasing, but they enlighten the heart of the conditioned souls. Unlike most popular singers of today, Hansadutta Swami lives a very simple and regulated life. He is a strict vegetarian, does not indulge in illicit sex, gambling or intoxication of any kind including tea, coffee, and cigarettes. Many of the songs on this album are done for the first time in the studio without previous rehearsal. The musicians playing with Hansadutta are all traveling monks and in making this particular album had not heard the words more than once or twice before going into the recording session. Hansadutta says, “these songs are kirtan - kirtan means spontaneous singing and dancing in praise of the Lord. There is no need to practice.” He says, “If one feels love of God, love of Krsna in his heart, then whatever such a person sings will inspire in the hearer the same mood of loving devotion to Krsna.”" (according to this website, which has an audio link!  He also made an album called The Vision. 
Oppose The subject of the article has standalone notability. Plenty of reliable, independent sources exist. The article could be significantly improved and expanded in the future.--Gaura79 (talk) 10:24, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
Oppose Besides what Gaura said, the AfD for this page ended just a month ago with a very clear consensus to keep it. All the relevant arguments then are just as relevant now. SilverserenC 10:36, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
