Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I follow Srila Prabhupada strictly, do not participate in other sangas other than ISKCON, and all those who are favorable to preserving and perpetuating Srila Prabhupada's legacy.
What are your expectations from this community?
To share and inspire one another via the following and propagation of Srila Prabhupada's teachings of Krsna consciousness.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
Train younger devotees and distribute Srila Prabhupada's books. I am also the present temple president in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. I have been given this service by the GBC, and it is just that a service not a post or position. I want to help the devotees there to acquire and "own" their temple. Presently they do not have their own property where Gaur Nitai can be beautifully worshiped. I'd like to implement a Bhakta program to train the devotees and establish regular Hari Nam and book distribution. The devotees there are very sweet and humble, and the general population is also that way. It is a beautiful island, I invite you to come visit.
