Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I am a very priate person and don't speak much krishna katah to anyone; besides, all my so-called friends think Krsna is either imagination of some artist or a metaphor of the soul. So, being on line in very important to me as I like to write and tell people about Krishna. THat's the way I am. As Pop Eye the Sailor Man would say, "I yam what I yam."
What are your expectations from this community?
Honesty. Practice what you preach. Clean up the mess in your own yard before criticizing other people's faiths and sadhana.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
I wish I could communicate how indebted to the devotees we all are, the ones on the front lines in the battle against Maya, ie, the sankirtan devotees and preachers and temple presidents who make ISKCON the beautifully transcendental organization it is. I invite devotees to go to my website to learn about the new book by Tirtha dasa, the hare krishna devotee doing 2 life terms in jail for doing his duty to Bhaktipada and the authorties of New Vrindaban. The website presents stories written by Tirtha dasa. follow the link www.100monkeyz.com
