In my material life, I am Chartered Accountant by profession and working in BEL Bangalore presently. However this is totally insignificant. In my spiritual life I want to be dasanudasa. Myself and my wife got first initiation in ISKCON Chandigarh in April 2003 due to mercy of senior vaisnavas of ISKCON Chandigarh from HH Gopal Krishna Goswami Maharaj. In Jan 2006, we again got mercy of Guru, Sadhu and Vaisnavas and got second initiation. Presently we are associated with ISKCON Bangalore centre and trying to preach in Hindi due to our spiritual masters mercy.
