1967 / John Lennon / G|eorge harrison's music. I was walking home from playing music with my band very early in the morning, and Nandi kesvara prabhu called me over asking me what kind of guitar I was playing. he was chanting japa in front of his temple. He was very kind to me and invited me to the Sunday Feast, then took me to meet Srila Prabhupada in Chicago.

Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I am a musician, speaker and cook. I live and travel in my truck in eastern canada. I do kirtans in peopls homes. I like to give out books and cook prasad for people. I sell art prints from my van, and give out books at the same time. I love travelling through the countryside and meet people that are into self sufficinet living, making their own holistic houses, essential oils, growing their own organic vegetables. I want to start a Krsna consciosu retreat where people can come, but also preach in the cities as well. I picked up a guitar for the first time in many years and am playing that in peoples homes chanting Hare Krsna. I can tell more, but not so much time here. I have 3 articles at Prabhupadaconnect.com under Memories and Causeless Mercy. One of them is called East Meets West.
