A pure devotee of Kåñëa, who raised me as a Kåñëa concious childfrom the beginning of my life. In my boyhood ages he instructedme how to play the mådanga. He gave me Rädhä-Kåñëa Vigraha toworship, and he gave me Jagannätha-Ratha to duly observe thefestival as my childhood play. He was kind to me, and I imbibedfrom him the ideas later on solidified by my spiritual master, theeternal father.
