Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I am serious about not taking birth again, having seen so many previous births I need to stop this samsara, to achieve this goal all I need to do is chant Hare Krishna, to do this effecitvly I rise at 01:30am and start my daily 68 rounds before starting my job. I am lucky with my job that I can listen to kirtan all day. Jay Sri Krishna, all glories to the Sankirtan movment.
What are your expectations from this community?
No expectations, just would like to associate with devotees with the aim of sharing experiences and, trying to learn from everyone how to be a better devotee, and to try to relish the nectar that is the maha-mantra, rather than just being the Hare Krishna chanter that this wretched soul is.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
serving all of Krishnas servant wether they are conscious of their postion or not. Serving at the Sunday feast is a real pleasure. I am also a regular pujari, mangal arati, dressing etc...
