I have been a mute spectator to all what has been said in your discussion. But I feel I must say a few things at this point.
Like yourself, at a young age, I too began to inquire about Life, Death and concurrently, God. And i…"
A very VERY Krishna Conscious New Year to you and your family as well!!
I will definitely try and get the book you have mentioned.
I request all the Devotees on this website to put one VERY important resolution at the very to…"
Thank you for sharing... :)
First off, let me offer my dandavat pranams to Deepti Mataji; she has demonstrated the characteristics of a true, empowered Devotee. Bringing a person who is entrenched in the web of the material world onto the Path of Krishna Conscious…"
Yes I have been away for some time now. Individuals like me are always entrenched in some materialistic endeavor or the other. It is only by the remembrance by Devotees like you that we receive the Mercy of Lord Krishna and th…"
Wonderful write-up Prabhu! Thanks for sharing...
Your eternal servant,
Thank you for your comments and prayers on my Story of Lord Guruvayurappan.
It is the prayers of Devotees like you that draw the attention of Lord Hari to unfortunate souls like me.
Your eternal servant,
Be rest assured that everyone's prayers are surely with your dear mother. May Lord Krishna give you and her courage to bear through these difficult times.
But please remember that while this event is no doubt tragic, your mo…"
What a fabulous story! It's true, Krishna's plans work in mysterious ways!

Name / Initiated name
Perhaps Eternal Muser would be the most apt name for me
Daily number of rounds of Hare Krishna mahamantra.
When, where and how did you come into contact with the Hare Krishna Movement?
1991. By the Grace of Lord Krishna, I happened to walk into the Radhagopinath Temple, Chowpatty. There onwards, my life changed forever...
Name the nearest or most frequently Visited ISKCON temple/ centre and name few of the devotees whom you know.
Radhagopinath Temple, Chowpatty, Mumbai
Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I am that Eternal Muser, that unfortunate Jiva, Who suffers in that unenviable position, perceiving his deplorable position as a conditioned soul; Who has been shown by those Exalted Devotees, the Path to be free of shackles but, Who lacks the courage and integrity to walk that Path; Who has eaten of that holy Prasadam, but failed to imbibe its Goodness; Who has partaken of that Bliss of Sankirtan, but has failed to assimilate its Glory; Who has heard of that Dark Complexioned One, and is called by Him time and again, only to ignore His call; Who intoxicated and bound by the charms of that Queen of Illusion, is condemned by the very hypocrisy on which he thrives, to eternal damnation and suffering; Who watches, an impotent bystander, as that golden sand of Bhakti, slips between his weak, irresolute fist, to be lost forever more. And thus, I muse, my exalted Friends, and will continue to muse, eternally so……
What are your expectations from this community?
I just wish to get online Association of Vaishnavas, for the sinner that I am, this is the only way I can attract the attention of that lotus-eyed, dusky complexioned, most attractive Lord Krishna. And save myself from the clutches of Maya Devi in whose charms I'm deeply entangled.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
I am in an unfortunate condition wherein I am unable to contribute anything of value to Vaishnavas and Lord Krishna, except for a few blogs which may serve to remind one of Lord Krishna. I don't know if this is useful, but right now, I'm working on making copies of Srila Prabhupada's books that can be read on lower end mobile phones (non-smart but java enabled); that can be taken along anywhere and relished by Devotees anywhere
