When, where and how did you come into contact with the Hare Krishna Movement?
Found Srila Prabhupada's "The Science of Self Realisation" in a pile of dirt at the age of 8 in 1989, so I picked it up as it looked different, but never understood it, came in contact with a devotee in 1998, he gave me Srila Prabhupada's "Higher Taste", I liked it because of the recipe's, refused to take to Krsna consciousness though, we moved out of that area in 2000, but the same devotee came into contact with us again whilst he was distributing books, sold us the Bhagavad Gita as it is, I read 2 chapters and closed it, as I felt this book was changing me, I felt I was not ready for change, but I became a vegetarian, as I did not like meat but was forced to and the Bhagavad Gita confirmed that I don't need meat as it's not good for me. In 2003 and 2004, I relocated to the USA for a while and to the UK for a while, I used to see the devotees all the time, during that time my brothers took to Krsna consciousness, Last year I went through a lot of Calamaties, during this time I read the teachings of Kunti, I then started taking my krsna Consciousness more seriously as it made sense to me, by the grace of my Guru Maharaja HH Bhakti Caitanya swami and HG Nrsingha Prabhu, I've been fortunate enough to be give Harinaam Initiation on the 8th December 2013, best day of my life by far.

can be avoided by Chanting.
The root cause of sorrow is our attachment to various objects.
we develop love for God
and our attachment to material objects reduces,
and sorrow disappears.
Dear souls !!!
Have you experienced the benefits of chanting ?
" KRISHNA JANMASHTAMI "
Our Lord God Krishna
is often referred to as the complete Incarnation.
He is also an Ideal in all respects.
Following are the highest ideals He established and functions He performed during His life in this world.
Shri Krushna would behave in a manner so as to make His parents, Vasudev and Devaki, as well as His foster parents, Nanda and Yashoda happy.
Shri Krushna would respect His elder brother Balarama.
Shri Krushna kept all His wives happy ! Even Narad’s efforts were frustrated when he tried to create strife amongst them.
Mind it ...
Prayer is not a Cobalt-Bomb
that it will do away with the wrong-doers
It has its own space, speed and spark
on the spiritual plane.
Krishna and Christ Jesus
prayed for their killers
Till today they are shinning
amidst us as guiding Lode-Stars.
The emperors and the kings who took swords and spears
are finished and forgotten.
Care to discipline yourself to learn the magic-of-prayer.
I wish you all success in Krishna Consciousness.
May Lord Krishna always bless and protect you
and bestow His mercy on you and may He fill
your life with
peace and love;
harmony and wisdom;
simplicity and humility;
appreciation and gratitude;
patience and perseverance;
kindness and generosity;
compassion and forgiveness;
courage and enthusiasm;
devotion, dedication and determination.
With love and best wishes.
