Daily number of rounds of Hare Krishna mahamantra.
When, where and how did you come into contact with the Hare Krishna Movement?
I grew up in a very strict Catholic Community,and I was responsible for my church to distribute books out into the public,however one of my friends said she was initiated into an community called ISKCON,and she gave me the Bhagavad Gita,which is the song of God,I read it and sooner I found myself reading more of Prabhupadas books getting even more interested,and then I decided to go to an ISKCON temple in Chicago,and I found myself in contact with the Hare Krishna devotees.
Name the nearest or most frequently Visited ISKCON temple/ centre and name few of the devotees whom you know.
ISKCON Chicago. I unfotunately only know one of my friends who went to the ISKCON temple in Chicago,and her name was Radhika.
Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
Hi Everyone! First let me start off that I am American,I was raised into the Catholic Community,However I found myself unsatisfied with the Catholic Doctrine,considering I never agreed with the beliefs and cultures of the Bible,until my friend gave me a Bhagavad Gita,I was moved and even teared a little bit as I read it,venturing more into the books by Srila Prabhupada,I grew even more interested in the movement. I am really really hoping to meet some open minded devotees :) Hare Krishna!
What are your expectations from this community?
I am only expecting the Devotees of Krishna to be a place of shelter for me,As I am undergoing treatment for Depression,it is my wish that the devotees give me their support.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
The service for Lord Krishna is simple,I dedicate all my activites for the supreme lord,and I strive to perform work as a sacrifice for Krsna. For the devotees I wish to offer my obesciences and serve as a place of refuge. If you are a devotee and are depressed or you are suffering other kinds of agonies, PLEASE contact me. It is my goal to communicate with as many kind hearted devotees as possible.
