I really want to serve Radha-Krishna and Vaishnavas..But i get into clutches of Maya Devi unknowingly..I have strong affection for Sri Sri Radha-Krishna and want to purify myself.. I came in association of ISKCON divotees in 1999 when i was studying in College of Agriculture,Pune. That time i attended first programme of ISKCON at Sri Sri Radha Kunjabihari Temple . During those days ISKCON started youth programmes for college students at my hostel. Sometimes I was also going for programme.. not to listen what they r telling about Lord..but for dancing and eating different Best Quality Sweets they bring with them to distribute. They always used to bring one auto-rikshaw..and it was signal for me of their arrival at hostel.. That time i wasn't got attracted to Krishna... Then for my Post Graduation.. i got admission at M.P.K.V. Rahuri. Rahuri is hub for making the Administrators for MH Govt..b'coz near about 40% of total selection is always from Rahuri..So i was also preparing for that.. There i get association of divotees...Satyapriya praabhuji, Baldev Prabhuji, Girivardhari Prabhuji, Sharad Kale Prabhuji, Prasad Shinde Prabhuji, Srinivas Ghadge Prabhuji, Prashant Ghadge Prabhuji and other divotees... Actually i was going to them as a change and as i like music very much from my childhood..so for listening western style Bhajans, Kirtans.. But slowly slowly i started going to them oftenly...and that time they were telling about Sri Sri Radha-Krishna..Also i was worshipping Lord Shivji and Lord Krishna from my childhood..i was getting attracted to hear about them...Then slowly i started chanting ..and then going on reading..and all divotees are so caring.. they are taking care of each other.. cooking nice Prasadam.. offering it to Lord frst and then taking prasadam sitting together discussing about Pastimes of Lord Krishna...i liked it very much... Then i also joined that divotee group..and started chanting.. following four regulative principles..taking only Prasadam..Listening, reading, kirtana...i then installed a small alter in my room.. This way.. i got the most valuable thing of my life.. Devotee Association and Krishna Prem... I think ..the days i spent with divotees at M.P.K.V. Rahuri Vidyapeeth are the most special days for me for the upliftment of my consciousness from material level to the spiritual level... There is very much to write ...And i dont know..Are you expecting this to be written by me over here or not...? HareKrishna.... Radhe Radhe...
