Mera nam Shanti hai :-) The highlight of my life was my journey to India, and the highlight of it was my pilgrimage to Vrindavan. I have often interpreted in the temple of Heidelberg German speeches into English for some Indians and other foreign guests, or English speeches of guest speakers into German for those who don't speak English. Now I've moved to Berlin and was amazed to see on the altar the big murti of my favourite form of Krishna, SRI JAGANNATHA. I love bhajans, dancing and prasadam. And sometimes I pray to Jagannatha in "his mother tongue" Oriya :-) He is so merciful :-) JAGANNATHA KI JAY !!!
