Bhagavan acarya dasa-A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Daily number of rounds of Hare Krishna mahamantra.
After many years of sporatic chanting-sometimes 1 round, other times 6 or 8, I'm now chanting a minimum of 6 rounds per day. I won't be satisfied until I get back to 16.
When, where and how did you come into contact with the Hare Krishna Movement?
1974. First, I purchased The Bhagavad-gita As It Is. After reading it, I wrote to L.A. for more info. and was given the address of the temple in Evanston,IL. Began visiting the temple on Sundays and after a few months was ready to join.
Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I operate a simple lawn care business. I have 2 teenage sons and an elderly mother that I take care of. I left ISKCON shortly after Srila Prabhupada's disappearance, but continue to read and chant and pray that Krsna gives me another chance to engage in devotional service.
What are your expectations from this community?
To engage in service to Krsna's devotees.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
