Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I love to immerse myself in to sankirtana. That's the only time I feel elevated and i tend to forget all about the material miseries. By Krsna's Mercy, I have a special fondness for music. I love to play Mridanga and Kartal in sankirtans. I also love to play guitar and piano. I am glad i am able to use these talents in to the service of Krishna. I also love to read books....etc...etc... Well, in this material world, I'm currently pursuing B.Tech from NIT - Calicut.
What are your expectations from this community?
In this age of Kali, the subtle body comprising of the Mind, Intelligence and Ego, can be a big problem. But if we engage ourselves in Krishna Consciousness, anything that is material, will seem to be spiritual, because we get the tendency to use anything and everything for Krishna. For example, this body that we have got, is not meant for our material benefits. This body has been given to us, as a chance to realize Krishna and our eternal relationship with Him. But to be able to get such types of realizations, the utmost requirement is chanting, and the association of devotees. Only then will we be able to achieve perfect Krishna Consciousness. Thus, My foremost expectations from this spiritual community is to be able to mingle with other Vaishnavas here, and always keep ourselves engaged in Krishna Consciousness.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
I'd love to offer anything possible to serve Lord Krishna and His devotees. I beg Krishna to allow me to be a dasanudas forever.
