Name the nearest or most frequently Visited ISKCON temple/ centre and name few of the devotees whom you know.
Ramananda prabhu, a 3-time president of the Honolulu temple on Oahu, has started a virtual temple here on the Big Island. We have a Skype conference call Bhagavatam class every morning at 7:30am and evening Bhagavad-gita classes. I am in the rotation to give class.
Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
Creative (graphic design is my day job), liberal minded, writer, teacher, but strictly param para according to Srila Prabhupada's books. Would like to associate will other creative devotees. Have published a KC children's book.
What are your expectations from this community?
looking for like-minded devotees to associate with.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
I like what some of the devotees are doing in Photoshop in an attempt to illustrate Bhagavad-gita verses. Also, I like dramas and devotees who are talented in script writing and storytellng. There is a lot of potential to preach online but it gets easier if it is a group effort.
