Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
Attaining love for Krsna (Krsna-prema) is the perfection of life. Therefore all endeavors find their fulfillment in the progressive development of pure Krsna consciousness (suddha-bhakti). In that attempt, all spheres of thought, speaking and activity should be incorporated -- according to everyone's individual nature. Rupa Goswami has recommended, Yena tena prakarena manah krsna nivesayet: "Some how or another, fix your mind on Krsna!" The more one is acting under proper guidance (anugatya), the more one will meet success. At present, I am particularly interested in transpersonal psychology and how all spiritual paths find their universality in Krsna consciousness. Remember: The soul is eternal, God is eternal, and our relationship with the Lord is eternal. God is one, and God is for everyone.
What are your expectations from this community?
Association with devotees is favorable for the development of bhakti.
