Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I like association of devotees. I go to great lengths to bring devotees together. Also those who show some interest are given some attention . In fact I organize a gathering of devotees and others once every week at my home with full feast Prasadam, Srila Prabhupada Guru Puja, Arti, discourse and Tulsi worship. I also love Harinam Sankirtana. I organize weekly Harinam every Sunday and also distribute 300 pieces of Halwa to peoples homes while they wholeheartedly and willingly donate . Before I used to distribute alone but since the last one year or so I have been joined by other devotees so we have Harinam also. I love to read Srila Prabhupada everyday, also i spend some time on internet to keep abreast with happenings at ISKCON all around the world.
What are your expectations from this community?
We can work together and help me make my whole country of Fiji Krishna Conscious just as Srila Prabhupada has said it will happen that Fiji will perhaps be the first fully Krishna Conscious country in the world....so help me make it happen
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
yes, Harinam together, sharing Prasadam together and lets convince others and bring them into Krishna consciousness, this will please our gurus, Srila Prabhupada and of course this will keep you and I in jolly good company too, rgds.
