Dear Vaishnava Prabhus,

Hare Krishna

VANCHAKALPATARUBYASH CA KRIPASINDHUBHYA EVA CA
PATITANAM PAVANEBHYOH VAISHNAVEBHYOH NAMOH NAMAH.

Let me begin by thanking Krishna.com for all the wonderful service that you already do to provide opportunities for devotees to associate with one another, such as web cams, blogs, lists of temples, lists of events, to name a few.

I am finding it difficult to find more groups of Iskcon and Iskcon friendly devotees to associate with as I travel from my home in Slidell, LA to the preaching center I am building in Fairfield, IA. Two years ago I found a group of very nice Vaishnavas in Cedar Rapids, Iowa with the help of your directory, but not I am feeling frustrated. I've tried more than once to add my center in Fairfield as well as my home in Slidell to your list, but have not heard from you, nor seen it listed.

I am not on a high standard of devotional service, which is all the more reason why I need the association of others who are interested in associating with Krishna through Prabhupada's books and those who are favorable to Iskcon. Is there anything I can do to help motivate or assist you in compiling a list of devotees around the USA and the world. There are all kinds of devotees who want to chant Hare Krishna and cultivate devotional service following in the footsteps of the Vaishnava devotees, but finding a list is very difficult.

I would like, for example, to visit with devotees in Memphis, TN, which is on my route to Fairfield, IA. Can we send emails out to request everyone who wants to meet other devotees to add their names and contact information? What do you suggest.

I beg to remain the servant of Krishna's servants.
