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 was living in London, Barkers, a huge department store. I met devotees outside selling books and records, I bought Change of Heart first, along with a few small books, then Goddess of Fortune, then I started visiting Bury Place (the first ISKCON temple in London), finally I decided to visit Bhaktivedanta manor, the rest is history, (and what a history), but somehow I am still hanging on!
Name the nearest or most frequently Visited ISKCON temple/ centre and name few of the devotees whom you know.
Bhaktivedanta Manor, England
Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I am married for 28 years, have three children, Kalind is 16, Subal is 18 and Rasala is 21. I work at Bhaktivedanta manor as the IT Manager, but I also deal with membership and other matters. I go out on Harinam every Saturday to local towns with about a dozen devotees or so. I listen to Srila Prabhupada mainly for my sustenance.
What are your expectations from this community?
I can see there is no much nectar, plus I would like to meet devotees from around the world, I find the chat a bit flat, hardly anyone is on it, or they mostly seem to be from india only, not that it matters, but perhaps you can do more to make it more prominent, interesting etc
