Krishna Venta is referenced in the unauthorized biography of Tom Cruise by Andrew Morton.
On page 97 of the book, the author says of L. Ron Hubbard's efforts to get his church going in California in 1954, "He faced stiff competition in acrowded field. In Los Angeles alone there were one hundred or so cults, one of his fiercest rivals being Krishna Venta, who told his disciples that he had arrived on a spaceship 240,000 years ago.Hubbard's philosophy was much more subtle, promising the spiritualequivalent of the alchemist's dream, turning pewter into gold."
