Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
If I had to describe my self I would say that I am a very private person with a deep love for our lordships , for Radha Madhava and all forms of divinity . Devotion to me is instinctive , I am not realy a born interlectual but am more reflective and put all knowledge and wisdom I posess down their lordships and my gurus mercy .
What are your expectations from this community?
I dont have expectations , satsangha is allways beautifull and to share and to encorage others is a pleasure . I will also always quietly learn from being in the company of devotees .
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
My favorite serva is decorating the shrine and prepairing for the deities , making costumes , teaching others to decorate , arrange flowers and make prepairations , helping others to understand the mood of devotion and serva .
