When, where and how did you come into contact with the Hare Krishna Movement?
I met the devotees first in 1971 in Manchester, England. Ranchor dasa Prabhu gave me some Prasad. I later saw the devotees perform Samkirtana on the Main Street. I visitaed the temple and heard Revatinandana Swami speak on Krsna Consciousness and later took up the chanting of the Mahamantra. I met My Spiritual Master in July of that year on the day before Sri Jaganathe Rathayatra at Sri Sri Radha London-isvara Temple. After his lecture on the Srimad Bhagavatam I asked Yadavendu dasa, whom I had met in Manchester, if I could stay and he kindly told me "Yes, I was wondering when you would ask !" Since then I have been working to cleans my heart and take shelter of Srila Prabhupada by following his instructions and the example he set in the service of his Guru Maharaja, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Gosvami, Prabhupadad. All Glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gouranga...

Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I am a Disciple of His Divine Grace, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, Prabhupada, initiated by him in 1973 at Bhaktivedanta Manor in U.K. I have served Srila Prabhupada in various capacities and locations in Europe, Africa and India and was fortuneate enough to have had his association and render some personal service. My main service is as a preacher of Krsna Consciousness, as orderes by His Diveine Grace on our first meeting; "Wherever you go and whomever you meet, tell them what you have learned from the Authorities such as Bhagavad-gita and Srimad Bhagavatam".. All Glories to Srila Prabhupada...
What are your expectations from this community?
Association of like minded ,Krsna Conscious devotees who are dedicated to following and preaching the message of Sri Caitanya as presented by His Divine Grace in his writings, recorded lecrures and conversations on the matter of devotional service to the Supreme Lord Sri Krsna and His Divine Consort Sri Radha..
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
My service is to introduce everyone to His Divine Grace srila Prabhupada by distributing his books and especially his recorded instructions. Many devotees say to me, "oh, you are so fortunate to have met Srila Prabhupada !" I tell them that, although I saw his physical form I only ever "met" through my ears by hearing his instructions and endeavouring to follow them. Anyone and everyone can "meet", or association with him Personally by listening to his Audio Libraray.. The sastra says thet the proper means of association with the Mahabhagavata is through subnissive aural reception and Thakura Bhaktivinode has said that if you get the oppertunity you should hear directly from the Mahabhagavata.. Srila Prabhupada arranged that his lectures and conversations should be recorded and so, by His Divine Grace, although I was fortunate to see and hear him on some few occasions, I can now sit with and hear from him wherevere he spoke. My request to all the devotee is that you accept Srila Prabhupada's arrangement to share his association. Hear from him directly the truths and standards of Gaudiya Vaisnava Phillosophy and distribute this Prasada for the benefit of all the conditioned souls... " He reasons ill who thinks that Vaisnavas die, while Thou are living still, in Sound. A Vaisnava dies to live and living tries, to spread the Holy Names around." .. Srila Bhaktivinode Thakura. Sri Guru Parampara Ki Jaya ! All Glories to His Divine Grace, Srila Prabhupadada....
