Welcoming New Full Members -



Madhava - Fri, 25 Jun 2004 17:27:00 +0530
Welcome onboard!

- Bhrigu
- Dirty Hari
- Gauraprema
- Madanmohan das
- Talasiga
Madhava - Fri, 25 Jun 2004 17:28:30 +0530
And some more...

- Advitiya
- Betal Nut

We'll be upgrading more members as we find more profiles filled in out there.
Madhava - Sat, 26 Jun 2004 18:59:50 +0530
Welcome:

- Radharaman
- Hari
- Manjari
Madhava - Sat, 26 Jun 2004 19:09:50 +0530
For example Advitiya and Manjari are model examples of properly filled in profiles.

There are some who have been promoted to Full Members as an encouragement of their willingness to fill in their profiles, but whose profile still falls a bit on the thin side. We would like to see them fill in a bit more, particularly information that defines them as an individual inclined for spiritual life: remarkable events and influences, etc.

Thanks to everyone for contributing in this regard!

Betal Nut, this applies particularly to you. I am posting this in public since you have failed to do anything in this regard. Please note that Member > Full Member is not a one way road.

Welcome to this sanga ramapryia, for just last night I attended a program where your gurudeva, Tripurari Swami, was lecturing. It was wonderful! He spoke on Gaura lila and siksastakam, among many other points. He also spoke on union of Radha-Krsna and its meaning to us, gaura bhaktas, and also union of Gaudiya Vaisnavas. I took some notes but will have to organize them a little so to post them here. If you like me to, I will do so.

For everyone's information, the member called Nimesha has been renamed as Dhyana upon her request. I've done a global search / replace, so all occurences of Nimesha now read as Dhyana, just in case you wonder.
Dhyana - Sun, 28 Nov 2004 19:13:15 +0530
Hi All,

I owe you an explanation to this name change, as well as a (delayed) presentation of myself. My name is Diana, initiated in ISKCON as Dhyana-kunda dasi. Up till now, I needed to keep my identity secret, because my husband (Ekkehard/Ekanatha) and myself have had experience of people forwarding our statements made in private forums to anybody who could cause trouble for us. It's a long story. But once your last penny has been stolen, you need not fear a thief anymore. Ek has been asked to leave the Almvik ISKCON community, and so we are no longer obliged to protect anybody's feelings by keeping quiet.

Back in July, I posted to GD my review of "The Hare Krishna Movement" book. I am sorry for not being open about my ties to Ek, whose contribution I also reviewed. Had I written under my own name, I risked Jahnu and Braja Sevaki would forward it to ISKCON Almvik and push again for us getting evicted. But I couldn't keep silent when Braja Sevaki engaged in character assassination of Ek and Nori in her nonreview that she spread over the net, "quoting" statements Ek never made, and so on.

I am happy all this is over now.

Your servant,
Nimesha/Dhyana

I would like to welcome Ye olde Anu, (Anuradha from Germany), an old friend from the BBT. A few days we got in touch by e-mail after some years of no contact and I referred her to this site. She is not a full member yet, but has filled in her profile.

Welcome Anu flowers.gif ! I am so glad to be in touch again.

Thanks very much for the welcome, Indranila! I'm glad to be back in touch too smile.gif

I've been looking for a forum like this for absolute ages... glad to have found you all. Like I mention in my profile, I'm not as erudite as many of you. So if you don't mind I'll just lurk for a bit until I feel comfortable throwing in my $0.02

(I just hope this is the right place to post this in this forum blush.gif Anyway.)

Jaya Sri Radhe!

My recpectful pranams to all the Vaishnavas here in this forum.

I would like to introduce myself for I'am a new member here.

By the mercy of my Gurudev Sri Ananta dasa Babaji I'am Jagannath das.

I'am not so well versed in philosophy like many of the members here, therefore I will be rather an enjoyer of the nectar than a contributor of knowledge.

Many of the members here where also members of the 'old' forum at raganuga.com.
Whenever I was searching for some strength for my spiritual life I could come to that forum and there was always a drop of sweet nectar which could calm down my material unhappyness.
I understand that places in this world where issues of transcendental kind are discussed are actualy windows to the spiritual realm.

Therefore please let me express my thanks to all who make this place alive. smile.gif

There is also another Jagannath das from England which is our Gurubrother too, and is sometimes writing here.
Jagannath - Wed, 04 May 2005 12:49:43 +0530
Pranams!

I guess I know only a view of my Godbrothers/Sisters. However, I live in Germany.
It would'nt be suprising if more than one is carrying the name Jagannath das. After all it is meant to describe the servant and the served and is not a mere designation, right? wink.gif

I think there are only about five disciples of Sri Ananta dasa Babaji in Germany. Do You have any number from Your country?
