Before he was a Hare Krishna, Terry Sheldon (Tapahpujna) was a Leftist radical in the Sixties.
He was NOT a hippie. He was a bomb-thrower.
He was an original member of the White Panther Party, and he had a relationship with certain cadre of the Weather Underground Organization and the Black Liberation Army.
He was friends with Ted Gold and Terry Robbins, who both died in the 1970 Greenwich Village Townhouse explosion, for example. He's told me all about those two men.
If memory serves, he met the Hare Krishnas in Berkeley CA in 1973 and took first initiation in 1974. Then he left his political activities behind, and rebranded himself as a radical for Krishna. A killer for Krishna, so to speak.
Yes. It's the same Terry Sheldon that is mentioned in these press clippings, linked below. He was friends with John Sinclair.
