Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
Have been coming to temple for many years. Retired from full time job in 2008, after which have become a serious devotee. Took life membership in ISKON. I do my rounds without fail everyday, observe the recommended fasting days, have seva of Sri Jagannath, Baladeva and Subhadra and of Laddu Gopal. I do daily abhishek for my Gopal, and offer bhog four times a day to my deities. Am reading the Bhagavat Gita and Srimad Bhagvatam seriously, along with the smaller books. I have fixed seva at the temple once a week and do whatever extra I get.
What are your expectations from this community?
Support and guidance along the straight and narrow road to sincere devotional service and cultivating strong Krishna Consciousness.
