When, where and how did you come into contact with the Hare Krishna Movement?
4 years ago... I was in a new age store and misplaced I saw this book called The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita Explained by Paramhansa Yogananda As remembered by his disciple, Swami Kriyananda. I didn't anything about it... But I bought it. I suppose God put it there for me. It MOVED me. Ever since it's been an ongoing journey and daily devotion. a year and a half ago... I was looking for a temple. I'd like to go to temple and I kept seeing "ISKCON". What is this?? Yanno? So I started reading. I started emailing someone across the united states asking questions. Arcita Dasa in LA. I started listening in on service twice a day every day. Now after four years I'm still a work in progress.
Name the nearest or most frequently Visited ISKCON temple/ centre and name few of the devotees whom you know.
Read above please. Soon, we're moving to Seattle and will be going to the temple in Sammamish
Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I obviously praise Krishna!! I am working on my bachelor's in metaphysical science and religious studies with a focus in eastern traditions. I love summer and the sunshine. I always feel like I was born by the wrong family in the wrong time and place. All of my friends are from other countries. Especially my dear (name) from Andra Pradesh. I like to play video games. I like gardening and digging in the dirt. I love being outside. I love mountains.
What are your expectations from this community?
I'd like to learn more, become even more open minded, maybe make some friends. And it's always nice to be part of a religious community, especially when things like facebook and media are so vulgar.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
Remember to live for the Supreme Being, every day, in everything I do and in all of my words.
