When, where and how did you come into contact with the Hare Krishna Movement?
1998 visited ISKCON Bangalore but did't know much of anything about the movement; 2001, Damodardesh Yatra, While purchasing a magazine from a book store in one of the shopping malls the shop keeper being from the same hometown in India suggested to visit sunday gathering in Gurudwara(on those days damodardesh yatra was being conducted at Gurudwara Hall now they have moved to Sindhi ceremonial hall) & gave me Srila Prabhupad's RAJAVIDYA Book as srila Prabhupada tells "what will your 3 minutes lecture will do? if he/she reads half a paragraph in a book their life will change so distribute books" so the prophecy of Srila Prabhupada always comes true it happend in our life also, our entire life changed from Srila Prabhupada's Raja Vidya Book... ALL GLORIES to Srila Prabhupada his wonderful books & movement........
