Here's part of a spam mail:
Call out Gouranga be happy!!!
Gouranga Gouranga Gouranga ....
That which brings the highest happiness!!
And I say, what the hell?
Update (July 25th):
after noticing a referral to this entry from Google with the search
term "gouranga spam" I figured I might as well find out what this
thing's all about. A little more searching revealed the following:
Gauranga (Gouranga) was a nickname of Sri Caitanya
Mahaprabhu, a monk in India who 500 years ago founded the branch of
Hinduism that during the 20th century was brought to the west by ISKCON
(International Society for Krishna Consciousness, better known as the
"Hare Krishna" sect).
The one recollection I had upon reading this bizarre mail was that, in the original Grand Theft Auto,
if you ran over all members of the occasional groups of monks prowling
the strings, you'd get a massive bonus with the word "Gouranga!!!"
superimposed on the screen. Apparently I wasn't the only one to notice
this, as the fact is featured prominently on wikipedia. At least now I know what the hell gouranga means!
