When, where and how did you come into contact with the Hare Krishna Movement?
2003 - Dover, De - The first devotee I met in person was Arya-Siddhanta Prabhu who was serving as my Guru Maharaj, His Grace Sankarshan das Adhikari & Guru Mata's Her Grace Srimati Vishnupriya Mataji driver. I came into contact with Krishna consciousness via a literature class in my 2nd year of college. We studied an excerpt from the Gita, it intrigued me so I went to the bookstore and managed to pick up a copy of Srila Prabhupada's Bhagavad-Gita As It Is (mainly because it was the thickest & had the coolest painting on the front). Shortly thereafter I was searching on the internet for more information on the Hare Krishna's & came into contact with my Guru Maharaj via his free e-course on Krishna consciousness (www.backtohome.com). Maharaj's unparalleled love & compassion coupled with his youthful enthusiasm & genuine happiness inspired me to give up the life I was living & aspire to become a devotee.

What are your expectations from this community?
to connect with people interested in Krishna consciousness. Sadhu sanga is soooooo important.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
I like doing pretty much anything...harinam, sankirtan, cleaning, Deity worship, cooking, gardening...whatever. In the professional realm I do graphic/web design & illustrations. I've been known to donate my services to purely devotional projects if time permits & I feel confident about the direction of the project. Would also be happy to do paid work as well.
