I was introduced to Gaudiya Vaisnavism in Boulder, Colorado three years ago. I had been attracted to Bhakti Yoga in high school, and when I finally got to meet devotees, i was blown away. I was taking some time off of school and decided to travel to Costa Rica, to learn about farming and seeking spiritual answers. That it where I met Guru Maharaja, Swami Tripurari, at the lovely ashram called Madhuvan.
When I returned to the U.S. I found myself at Audarya pretty quickly and immersed myself in monastic life for a couple years – amazing devotees and such powerful years for me in my spiritual life. I recently have transitioned to Saragrahi, and am looking forward to spending time with the nice devotees here.
I love to garden, and am hoping to invest a lot of energy into the plot here – such amazing soil! It would be such a nice service to grow vegetables and fruit for Gaura Radha Madhava and their devotees here.
