Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I first visited New Panihati Dham 22 years ago, but took initiation on June 4, 2011. I love to cook prasadam and enjoy ecstatic kirtans! I have been told that I have a very good sense of humor and I like to see people smile. Music has always been very important in my life. I have no children, but have many "babies" (5 cats, 4 dogs, and 16 birds...including a blue and gold macaw).
What are your expectations from this community?
I hope to meet other devotees for association and inspiration.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
I am dedicated in trying to spread harinam sankirtan in the Atlanta, GA area.
