I was born in Germany in 1953. My friend, who was with me every step in the search for a real spiritual path bring me to Hare Krishna temple. I wanted to go to India to meet a spiritual master but my father kept me in Europe, because he denied me a passport and I was yet under 18. Then we heard that our spiritual master would soon come to Paris. Then we went to Paris and what I had hoped came true more intensely then I had thought. Srila Prabhupada give me first instruction: "Tell everyone about Krishna. Make that the mission of your life."
Anyhow, I am such an insignificant soul. I cannot call myself a devotee of Krishna, but I pray that by the causeless grace of my spiritual master I may become a real devotee one day. Then somebody may ask me: "How do you dare to accept disciples if you are in such a beginner's position?" Well, it is really a long story and Internet readers have little time. But I had to see that after my spiritual master left this world, some of my brothers did not exactly behave too well and I had to either decide to take responsibility on my own shoulders or to stop preaching. That was not what my Guru had enthused me to do. I met his Srila B.R. Sridhar Goswami Maharaj and he encouraged me to take the risk of personally guiding others in their spiritual life. He also gave me Sannyas initiation. More info >> and http://vrindaportal.com/
