i offer my most humble obeisances to Srila Prabhupada....

unless you were born in India....the only way you found out about the Hare Krsna Mantra (such an amazing thing that it is) is because Srila Prabhupada brought it here....gee, when i think of him traveling all that way to america....and he was an old man already....
....i love thinking of Him as a little boy pulling the Ratha Yatra Cart.... When I was a little girl around ten years old....I used to have a little wooden Jaganatha Diety...
But thanks to my Mata Ji.... I found out about Srila Prabhupadas message when i was even younger.

My Mom brought me to Los Angeles Temple when i was so little maybe five...Srila Prabhupada was there.... she said He was going to give his lecture and they said all the little kids had to go outside....My Mata said i was sound asleep in her lap ....so they let me stay..... and my subconsious really soaked in the love Prabhupada had for all....
and ...the coolest part is i got to give him a flower and get a cookie...and i actually do remember it....

krsna was always a part of our life as i grew up no meat fish or eggs but we went to public school and to the temple in pb on sundays....... there was a few incidents where karmis really took notice of the fact that we didnt eat meat. ... i dont know how many times in elementary school i was asked ....if you dont eat meat....what do you eat...i would always say...everything except meat...hee hee.........

anyway maybe i will fill in more details later...but ....when i was thirteen i had the great honor to be in gurukula.....for one whole year.....it was ....a landmark experience in my life. a grounding of my spiritual experience into something solid that no matter where i strayed ....the mantra was instantly on the tip of my tongue at any time....thus the alpha state so readily accessed the Holy vibration mine.....
when i was little we went to the pb temple and the temple president gave me a woodent statue of Krsna....i loved it so much and would read to it and everything....Krsna and I have been friends ever since.
does anyone have any uptma......i love the way they used to make that for us girls in the ashram....we used to clean the kitchen once a week ...we almost fell into the giant pots....and we also cleaned the chandeliers that are in the la temple ....we had to be high above the marble floors on scaffolding....gee that was cool...well glad to be here .....i need contact with other devotees but i dont have a car so this is my link to you all......Hare Bol...jai Sri Chaitanya........
i hope i meet some people here that i can relate to
