SOHO ST, I VISIT OCCASIONALLY, I DO NOT KNOW ANY DEVOTEES.
Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I am 65 this year, I left the Detroit temple in late 1986 (due to being urged to undergo RE-Initiation)and returned to UK late 1987. I read my Srila Prabhupada's Gita morning and evening and listen to HH Rompada Goswami lecture most days. I do some gardening and am avoided by most people as I will insist on telling them that they are not their bodies and that their persuit of enjoyment is futile and unsatisfiying. (Crazy old bloke). I transcribe the Gita, slokas and translations at least once each year, I should be able to recite it by now but can't.
What are your expectations from this community?
I do not have any expectations, it is an unknown commodity, perhaps, one day I could be inspired to surrender to a temple again!
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
in the past I have dug holes, I have built, I have collected Laksmi, i have been pujari, I have cooked, and I have betrayed my vows. just to be able to make a small offering, a flower, leaf fruit or water as I do each day and know it is acceptable.
