Initiated in 1978 by H.H. Satsvarupa das Gosvami, have been very inconsistent in my sadhana over the years and would like to get some association to help motivate me, enjoy cooking for the Deities and worship Shaligram Shila daily at home, working as a jazz musician and teaching at the local community college, married to Revati devi dasi (disciple of H.H. Niranjana Swami)
What are your expectations from this community?
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
Cooking is my favorite service.
