When, where and how did you come into contact with the Hare Krishna Movement?
Hare Krishna I had an inclination towards knowing about Krishna since my childhood. But since i am born in a Christian family, i am not allowed to visit temple. Therefore after i completed my school, i bunked my college Lectures sometimes and visited temple. I started chanting one round on 14feb2008. Then one day in temple i met Pranpriya mataji and she asked me if i would attend a ladies program. And thats where i became more regular. from march08.

!!!~HARE KRISHNA~!!! m no great personality to be described.. to tell few things about me is: my only desire is to serve KRISHNA in all the ways i can... Simple Living and High Thinking is What I believe in.. My Only prayer to Krishna is: Make me a servant Humble and Meek Lord let me lift UP Those who are weak.. And may the Prayer of my Heart ALWAYS be... Make me a SERVANT today... To KRISHNA all i can say is AS THE DEER THAT PANTS FOR WATER SO MY SOUL LONGS AFTER YOU.. YOU ALONE ARE MY HEARTS DESIRE AND I WANT TO WORSHIP YOU.. YOU ALONE ARE MY STRENGTH MY SHIELD, TO YOU ALONE MAY MY SPIRIT YEILD.. YOU ALONE ARE MY HEART'S DESIRE AND I WANT TO WORSHIP YOU.. I WANT YOU MORE THAN GOLD AND SILVER ONLY YOU CAN SATISFY... YOU ALONE ARE THE TRUE JOY GIVER AND THE APPLE OF MY EYE... May the merciful Lord always bless you all (n me too) so that we continue to be in his service eternally... I wud love to share this poem with all...its wonderfull Take away my WILL Krishna, I am yours. Force me to do what is right & best. Use me as you like, You be my intelligence. You be my mind, You act as my will. I do not know what is best for me. In this lifetime I am trying so hard And nothing is working. I ask you to put me in the right place, At the right time, For the right thing. Whatever is best, Whether it auspicious or inauspicious Bring on me what I need. My desire, my intelligence Even my will, They are all contaminated. I offer them all to you, My dear Lord SHYAMASUNDARA I am yours, You do with me what is BEST. Help me to be eager To accept not in a grudgingly mood, But with real zeal and enthusiasm. As I submit myself and ask, “what can I do??” -by H.H. Bhakti TirthSwami Krishnapada !!!~RADHEY RADHEY~!!! The Lord's Feelings Toward Someone Who Chants His NameSrila Prabhupada told us that the chanting means to address the Lord. We talk to Him by calling His name.But we may wonder, How does the Lord feel about those who chant? Does He notice them?Yes. Krsna notices chanters even if they don't notice Him - and He thinks of them. As Srila Vishvanath Chakravarti Thakura said, "When someone chants the Lord's name, the Lord's mind dwells on him. Krishna thinks, 'This person belongs to Me. I will always protect him!'
What are your expectations from this community?
As most of the time i am not able to offer service by physically being present. I try to offer some service through such sites.. So far i have done so much but i just hope this community. allows me to serve Krishna , Guru n Vaishnavas in some way.
