Hare Krishna movement is a branch of Hinduism who chant 'Hare Krishna' –'Hare' refers to 'praise' or 'Hail' and 'Krishna' means God Krishna has 330 million demigods assisting him in his work. For instance, there is a God who controls the wind. Another one controls the sun Monks always serve Krishna. They chant praises to Krishna and they live within his laws.

The teachings of the Hare Krishna movement are derived from ancient Hindu scriptures, followers of the movement believe that Krishna is the Supreme Lord and that humans are eternal spiritual beings trapped in a cycle of reincarnation.

They are vegetarians, and they do not accept the use of alcohol and drugs. Sex is allowed only for procreation within marriage. Male followers shave their heads, leaving only a small tuft of hair as a sign of surrendering to their teacher.
