Today in one of my email accounts I received a spam message entitled "Gouranga". The entire body of the message follows:

Call out Gouranga be happy!!!
Gouranga Gouranga Gouranga ....
That which brings the highest happiness!!

I tried heeding the spam and calling out Gouranga, and yes, I must say, it did make me a little happier.



is a word that is used by Hare Crishna monks meaning be happy!

EG 1.

happy monk guy- how are you today friend? are you happy?
guy- no! now go away!
happy monk guy- say gouranga it means be happy it will cheer you up 
Guy- humph! gouranga...............he your right i feel happy already!


when you play gta 1 you can usually find a line of monks (the orange guys) if you kill them all at once gouranga apears in big letters across the screen

There are twenty-three other definitions, mostly stemming from the same root. Apparently, this is a pretty common form of spam. I've never seen it before, which is odd, because I'm a freakin' spam magnet. Anyway, Gouranga to you!
