When, where and how did you come into contact with the Hare Krishna Movement?
2006; Bangalore - India; Reading Srila Prabhupad's "Bhagavad Gita As It Is" and other books I bought from a book distribution at CMH Road really attracted me to ISKCON. Upon doing a web search about ISKCON I was completely convinced about the authenticity of this movement by two statements: Statement # 1: I am not here to make followers... I can not break the Vedic rules ... if anyone wants to be my disciple he has to follow 4 regulative principles - no nonveg, no intoxication, no gambling and no illicit sex. -Srila Prabhupada Statement # 2: We do not make our own philosophies ... we simply repeat what is said in scriptures or by great Vaishnava Acharyas. -Srila Prabhupada
