Hello all,

I am Raven and I live in Sydney, Australia. I am very new to Krishna Consciousness. A friend of mine sent me a copy of the Bhagavad Gita last year and I received a copy of The Journey of Self Discovery by Swami Prabhupada. I am currently reading The Journey of Self Discovery and am finding myself identifying with everything written.

I have followed Tibetan Buddhism for some time, but I find myself disagreeing with the concept of anatta (no soul) I also wholeheartedly believe in God/Divinity and I strongly believe that Krishna Consciousness is the path for me. I am lucky to have a Vedanta House only a few houses down the road from me and I have contacted them about attending Bhagavad Gita classes. I am waiting for their reply (I only emailed them yesterday).

I have come here in the hope of learning more and hopefully being able to contribute meaningfully to conversations here.

Namaste,
Raven
