IT IS DIFFICULT FOR ME TO EXPRESS MY WORDS BECAUSE I AM A FOOL BUT NORMALLY I LISTEN TO ALL VAISNAVA WHO SPEAKS. SINCE YOU ASKED ME THE QUESTION I SHALL REPLY - ONE MUST BE HUMBLE AND SHOULD LISTEN TO OTHERS VERY CAREFULLY AND ANSWER IT. ONE MUST AVAOID PRAJALPA. UNNECESSARY BOASTING ABOUT OURSELVES. I DID THIS I DID THAT.. WHO CARES AND NO ONE WANTS TO KNOW. LIKE A GRASS ONE SHOULD BOW IN FRONT OF PEOPLE SO THAT EVEN IF TIDAL WAVES COME NOTHING HAPPENS TO GRASS. STRONG & EGOISTIC TREES ARE UPROOTED. AGAIN I SHALL REPEAT, SMILE ON THE FACE, HUMBLENESS, NEAT DRESSING MUST BE CAREFUL WITH PUBLIC BEHAVIOUR BECAUSE YOU ARE REPRESENTING VAISNAV. WE DO NOT POSSESS ANYTHING NOT EVEN THIS BODY & IS IN THE CONTROL OF PRAKRATI DETERIORING DAY BY DAY. OUR ONLY POSSESSION IS REMBERING KRISHNA ALL THE TIMES IN OUR HEART AND NOTHING ELSE. SORRY FOR MY BAD WRITING.
What are your expectations from this community?
I EXPECT FROM THIS COMMUNITY TO HAVE A SIMPLE GATHERING & HIGH THINKING OF OUR GOSWAMIS. ALWAYS GLORIFYING KRISHNA AGAIN AND AGAIN. LOOK AT THE PICTURES OF SIX GOSWAMIS - GREAT - NO EXPECTATIONS - THEIR ONLY DESIRE IS LET PEOPLE CHANT HOLY NAME OF KRISHNA. SIMILARLY EVEN IF WE GATHER WE SHOULD NOT HAVE FEAST PRASADAM BUT SIMPLE ITEMS BUT DEVOTE MORE TIME ON THE PAST TIMES OF VAISNAVAS AND KRISHNA.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
I CAN DO ANY SERVICE TO KRISHNA & HIS DEVOTEES & THERE IS NO CHOISE. WHATEVER SERVICE I SHALL ACCEPT HAPPILY. SINCE I AM A COST ACCOUNTANT BY PROFESSION, I ALWAYS TRY TO DO ANALYSIS OF THE COST OF ANY ITEMS. BUT I AM A FAILURE IN ANALYSING COST OF A DEVOTEE ? THEY ARE A GREAT AND NO ONE CAN ESTIMATE THEIR COST EXCEPT KRISHNA
