Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I still visit India when I have the cash. I usually try to get to the Kumbh Mela which is where I began in 1971. I would like to get in touch with the senior god-brothers that are contactable and also feel that I could do with some help myself. I have done a lot of service in India and even started a profit making shop in Bombay which is still making a profit today. Something that I have not managed to do with my carpenty and handicrafts. I do have some taste now in my old age and I cling tightly to the feet of Srila Prabhupada who has rescued me and saved me on numerous occaisions from Maya and the demons. Any association would be a help but I would be particularly interested to be able to have a word with Srila Satsvarupa Goswami. He was Srila Prabhupada's secretary when I was travelling with him as night watchman and daytime security. He may remember me. Hari Sauri was his servant at that time. All glories to Sri Guru and Gouranga. Ys. Aksaya

I am a good cook and have done so in many places for many people. Up to 10,000 for Janmastami in Bombay I am experienced in renovation repairs and carpentry. I was recently working in Villa Vrindavan in Italy. I can also give talks and express myself and perception.
