Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I always consider myself as very bad person. I am also a family man. Always have a fight with my wife. No understanding with her since marriage. I have a Daughter, Tulsi Prabhu, who's a God Gift. Despite being very bad to my family esp. my wife and her parents, I am normal to everyone. I always have a misunderstand or a fight with these mentioned people. But when it comes to devotion, chanting, I see lord Krsna and tears comes from my eyes making me realise that being bad, why Krsna is so mercyfull that he makes me chant his name always, read Scriptures like Bhagwad Gita and Srimad Bhagwatam daily without fail. So, I Consider myself as a servant of the Lord Krsna, who is here to please him by always chanting his holy name. Also a professional, works for a Hospital Industry as a Marketing Manager. BUt I consider Inkcon devotees are really very fortunate to be in Krsnaa's shelter. I myself feel sometimes bad or guilt, to be among them during Sunday feast in Temple, bcoz these devotees are so pure. And Krsna is showing his greatness and his mercy by getting me among these pure devotees. I LOVE YOU KRSNA. MAKE ME LOVE YOU THROUGH OUT MY LIFE. ALL IS YOURS KRSNA. NOTHING IS MINE EXPECT THE HOLY NAME OF YOURS WHICH COMES FROM MY MOUTH. HARE KRSNA.
What are your expectations from this community?
I AM HERE TO PLEASE KRSNA. THATS IT. TO MAKE HIM HAPPY. NOTHING TO GAIN MATERIAL. EXPECTING TO BE A MAD IN KRSNA'S LOVE.
