When, where and how did you come into contact with the Hare Krishna Movement?
1984, introduced by Swami Kurma Das who originally hails from Sudan( not the famous chef). After reading Srila prabhupada's books I finally came to understand about Krishna in detail, and began following the Gita wholeheartedly. I had been initiated into Ramakrishna order by a great saint, but I realised that I must take initiation into the great Brahma Gaudiya Vaishnava Parampara, to fully understand and appreciate the pastimes of the Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.So I am seeking initiation from HH Lokanath Swami Maharaj who I met in 1985 in Delhi.
Name the nearest or most frequently Visited ISKCON temple/ centre and name few of the devotees whom you know.
ISKCON VRINDAVAN,every year during Damodar masa. HG Deenbandhu Das Prabhu,HG Govardhandhari Das Prabhu.
Also regular member of Shyamadesh Bhaktivruksha, under the leadership of HG Ramakrsna Das prabhu, an initiated disciple of HH Jayapataka Swami Maharaj.
Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I am a life member since a long time now, been associated with ISKCON since 1984, missed the opportunity of seeing Srila Prabhupada, but I saw him in two visions, and that compensates for everything. I started off with chanting 16 rounds daily, kept it up for a while, then after marriage things changed a bit, but again I made efforts to return to 16 rounds a day. I have been deelpy inpressed by Lokanatha Swami Maharaj, who is also the direct disciple of Srila Prabhupada. I see initiation by Lokanatha Swami Maharaj or his initiated disciples.
