On August 14, 2003 India Abroad reported that "graffiti... [in the form of] 'KKK'... and 'Satan,' and such appeared on the walls of the Bhakti Vedanta Cultural Center, a Hare Krishna temple in Chandler, Arizona and on the school bus on the night of August 1. Vijaya Gauinga, the monk who discovered the vandalism, said he considered the 'KKK' graffiti a warning. 'We feel it as an act of hate,' Bhaktaraj Swami, one of the Center's 13 monks, told India Abroad."
