Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
Reading Srila Prabhupada's Bhagavad Gita was a total eye opener for me and I am eternally indebted to my master Swami Prabhuapada for that. Since I read it over a year back I have surrounded myself with Krishna. Swami prabhupada has opened the doors for me to explore the rich vaishnava history of India right from the Alwars to various acharyas like Madhvacharya, Ramanjucharya, Annamacharya and various saints like Sant Tukaram, Gyaneshwar, Namdev, Gora Kumbhar, Poonthanam, Bhattathiri and of course Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu to name a few. I am currently wrapping up my job in the UK to get back to India to do full time service to Krishna. I don't know how yet, but I just want to follow Srila Prabhupada's teachings to the core as much as possible. Currently I am just preparing myself to be qualified to do service to Krishna by following the regulated process and trying to become a pure soul .
What are your expectations from this community?
My expectation is to be able to get guidance and share any information that we have with each other about increasing Krishna Consciousness. Also form a few like minded devotee friends group with whom I can always just talk about Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavatam etc) and maybe do service to Krishna as a group.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
I would like to give full time service to Krishna. Of course being a grihasta, I still have to live with the family but would like to work for a temple in India full time. But specifically, I want to always distribute Srila Prabhupada's books everywhere I go. They can change someone's life forever.
