Daily number of rounds of Hare Krishna mahamantra.
When, where and how did you come into contact with the Hare Krishna Movement?
I had contact numerous times growing up on Long Island - when I was in high school the Hare Krishnas were everyhwere.
I didn't get interested in pursuing this path until February 2014, when a vacation tour of India settled in to Vrindavan at the MTV, for three days. I visited the temple several times and chanted kirtan for a long time. The rest is history.
Name the nearest or most frequently Visited ISKCON temple/ centre and name few of the devotees whom you know.
I attend the temple in Salt Lake City, and sometimes Spanish Fork. I know temple president Caru Das, his wife Vai, Syama Vihari and Draupadi, Vanamali and Tatyana, Ras Vilas, many more.
Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I was raised Catholic, attended Protestant church in high school, and was baptized Mormon in 1977 (exactly one month after the disappearance of Srila Prabhpada). I have attended church faithfully for 40 years but now, after meeting the HK devotees, feel like I am at the very beginning of spiritual life. And very happy to have found a seemingly endless path to greater God realization!
What are your expectations from this community?
Learn more about Krishna Consciousness and derive strength from association with devotees.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
I am an attorney so I can help in that area. I am generally willing to serve.
