Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I am interested in all educational development for Bhakti Yoga in Krsna consciousness. This includes Krsna conscious agriculture and Bhagavat Dharma.

I need more devotee friends and family. This is my first concern. I am a follower of the famous Vaisnava Saints the Six Gosvamis of Vrndaban. It just seems so steep for me to realize the level of renunciation lived by the Six Gosvamis.

However, I very much appreciate the way of Bhaktivinode Thakur in establishing Vaisnava teachings.

I am destitute like a starving artist.
What are your expectations from this community?
Looking for Krsna conscious association, Sat Sanga.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
I would like to get my Sadhana Bhakti up to ISKCON standard. I would like to help with educational development for Bhakti Yoga in Krsna consciousness as well as Bhagavat Dharma.

trnad api su-nicena
taror iva sahisnuna
amanina mana-dena
kirtaniyah sada harih
Synonyms
trnat api -- than downtrodden grass; su-nicena -- being lower; taroh -- than a tree; iva -- like; sahisnuna -- with tolerance; amanina -- without being puffed up by false pride; mana-dena -- giving respect to all; kirtaniyah -- to be chanted; sada -- always; harih -- the holy name of the Lord.
Translation
One who thinks himself lower than the grass, who is more tolerant than a tree, and who does not expect personal honor yet is always prepared to give all respect to others can very easily always chant the holy name of the Lord.

 Verse 2.  One's devotional service is spoiled when he becomes too entangled in the following six activities: (1) eating more than necessary or collecting more funds than required; (2) overendeavoring for mundane things that are very difficult to obtain; (3) talking unnecessarily about mundane subject matters; (4) Practicing the scriptural rules and regulations only for the sake of following them and not for the sake of spiritual advancement, or rejecting the rules and regulations of the scriptures and working independently or whimsically; (5) associating with worldly-minded persons who are not interested in Krsna consciousness; and (6) being greedy for mundane achievements.


 Verse 3.  There are six principles favorable to the execution of pure devotional service: (1) being enthusiastic, (2) endeavoring with confidence, (3) being patient, (4) acting according to regulative principles [such as sravanam kirtanam visnoh smaranam -- hearing, chanting and remembering Krsna], (5) abandoning the association of nondevotees, and (6) following in the footsteps of the previous acaryas. These six principles undoubtedly assure the complete success of pure devotional service.


 Verse 4.  Offering gifts in charity, accepting charitable gifts, revealing one's mind in confidence, inquiring confidentially, accepting prasada and offering prasada are the six symptoms of love shared by one devotee and another.

Pranam My Dearest Dandavats Prabhu.  Hare  Krishna.
May you receive transcendental blessings and grace
and mercy; health and strength  and  understanding;
peace  and  love; harmony and wisdom;  insight and
intuition and inspiration from the God of Gods; the
Lord  of Lords; the King of Kings; the God of love, the
Original Bhagavan; the Supreme Personality of Godhead,
Lord Krishna.  I offer my respectful obeisances unto  Him.
When a soul arrives at its full bloom, it begins to emanate
love of Godhead,  and spreads the  fragrance of  love of
Godhead, love for Lord Krishna. When  the stream of love
of Godhead, love for  Lord Krishna flows  in its full strength,
it purifies all that stands in its way, as the Ganges purifies
all those who dip in its sacred waters. May your  devotion
to Lord Krishna  be  resolute and unflinching;  may  your 
confidence in Him be firm and total; may your love for Him
be unfailing and intense, and may  your faith  in Him be
strong  and steadfast; deep and profound; unwavering and
unshakeable. Know well that  Lord Krishna`s eternal love for
you encircle and encompasses you at all times, night and day.
With love and best wishes, take care, bye. Radhe Radhe.

places we have visited. He knows about the places we have
lived at different times in our lives. Lord Krishna knows
about the many experiences we have embraced throughout
