Daily number of rounds of Hare Krishna mahamantra.
When, where and how did you come into contact with the Hare Krishna Movement?
I don't remember the exact time but it's been around 1 year. I was once in a bookstore in Delhi where I came across a book titled 'Glory of Krishna'. Intrigued by the book, I bought it and read it and realized that it made perfect sense on how should live one's life. Since then, I've been listening to Lord Krishna's bhajans and keep chanting the Mahamantra in my mind and the peace and serenity which I experience is just amazing. I feel I'm connected to him. Around 20 days back, I went to Vrindavan and visited the ISKCON temple and bought this book, 'KRSNA: The Supreme Personality of Godhead'. The immense pleasure which I get while reading the past times of Lord Krishna is just indescribable. Life seems pretty easy and happy, though I'm going through a rough phase, when in Krishna's presence. :-)
Name the nearest or most frequently Visited ISKCON temple/ centre and name few of the devotees whom you know.
The most frequently visited ISKCON centre by me is ISKCON, Vrindavan. As for the devotees' name, I don't know anyone there. I just go to Vrindavan, visit the temple and chant the Lord's name there.
Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
Hi, I'm Chandra Bhushan. Sometime back, a question just popped in my head, 'Why was I brought on this earth? Where will I go after I die?' Since then, I've been searching for the answers and it's all because of Krishna's grace and benignity that I got the answer and now know the goal of my life. I'm now an aspiring devotee of Krishna; he's everything in my life. I can feel his presence and connect with him. I'm now trying to implement the teachings of the Great Lord in my life and get rid of my past Karma accumulations. Hare Krishna! :-)
What are your expectations from this community?
To connect with more devotees here, read their articles, clear my doubts and become more spiritually advanced in Krishna's Consciousness. Also, if possible, help spread Krishna Consciousness in the society.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
Photography is a hobby of mine, so if need be, I can take pictures of any event taking place in ISKCON temples. In general, I would love to be part of any volunteering service.
