Name / Initiated name
Daily number of rounds of Hare Krishna mahamantra.
When, where and how did you come into contact with the Hare Krishna Movement?
I think, it was in some September 2006 I heard about VOICE (Vedic Oasis for Inspiration Culture and Education) chapter in BHU first time from Balaji Prabhu. He gave me literally a "class" about VOICE and imposed me to attend the mangal arti and lectures. Initially I was reluctant and tried to avoid by telling "busy schedule" of my MTech thesis. Finally he succeeded to take me to VOICE and from there starts my Krishna Conscious life.
Name the nearest or most frequently Visited ISKCON temple/ centre and name few of the devotees whom you know.
I visited ISKCON Bangalore last year and ISKCON Delhi is just a walk away from my office, I can see the dome of the temple from my seat in office. I know many sincere devotees, from whom I came to know more about ISKCON and because of their mercy I could be a bit part of ISKCON. Some of the devotees are here. Balaji Prabhu (MTech-IT BHU), Manish Prabhu (BTech-IT BHU), Pulkit Prabhu (BTech-IT BHU), Giridhari Prabhu (BTech-IT BHU), Ashu Prabhu (BTech-IT BHU) and many.

Hare Krishna. Please accept my humble obeisance. My self Abhilash Nair, a MTech graduate from IT-BHU, now working with Hydro Tasmania (A Govt. of Tasmania State, Australia, Enterprise), Hydro power Consultancy, India office New Delhi as Hydro Power Engineer. I came to Krishna Consciousness during my BHU life and I had association with wonderful devotees. I started chanting daily 1 round first then came to 2, 4, 8 and at last 16 on 1st November 2008 and still I'm chanting 16 round only because of Krishna's grace. I completed my MTech in Jun 2008, since then I'm not able to maintain intimate association with pure souls. Now I'm staying alone and somehow or other I can chant Holy Name and offering whatever food I prepare to Krishna and then having Prasadam. I don't consider myself as a devotee but still I'm trying to be more sincere in my Krishna Consciousness. So please pray for me so that I can be more sincere. Your aspiring servant Abhilash Hare Krishna.
