1) After coming in contact with ISKCON, my personality has experienced profound changes, though initially I was not able to perceive them, just as we do not perceive our growth of age. It is such an extraordinary process that though we do the routine things yet everyday it gives a new flavor altogether.
I was supposedly very happy in the world in which I was living before, but after coming in contact with ISKCON, I came to know what actually boundless happiness is and what it consists. Especially during our spiritual camps even a layman can experience that boundless happiness. If I have got any real friends in my life, who actually care for me of which bodily care is only a subset, then those are the devotees in ISKCON. Here, you get a lot of support both professionally and spiritually.
Often it is seen that a person gives up the values to excel in this world, due to which there is always dissatisfaction within the core of the heart. But a perfect blend of training in character and competence with a privilege of unadulterated and unparalleled spiritual culture can be experienced within the Krishna Consciousness Movement (ISKCON). For those who really want to make some contribution to the world, ISKCON provides a perfect platform.

Since the glorious day of my coming in contact with Lord Sri Krsna via the devotees of ISKCON, I have been a witness of the magic, change in my habits, from unclean to clean; change in my behavior from arrogance to humility; change in my fortune, from bad to good; change in my consciousness, from matter to spirit. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have understood the importance of spirituality, in my youthful age when I was preparing for my CA. By God grace, I am well positioned in my life now, having cleared my CA and working in a reputed firm but this alone could have never brought me that bliss which I derive from engaging in devotional services. As I see, those of my friends who couldn't become CA and are not well oriented as well as those who could do it and are earning good; either case no one is peaceful, prone to illicit habits. When the whole world is chasing after the mirage of happiness, I try to concentrate on meeting the principle of Simple living and High Thinking, which I consider to be very much practical keeping association with such a society. I am learning the art of dovetailing everything to Krsna through his devotees, even my work and I am experiencing higher taste each passing day. I am deeply obliged for the efforts which each devotee here puts to take illusioned persons like me a step closer to God. This is incomparable to anything else in this world.
Thank You Lord for being merciful on me. Akshay Gupta CA,KPMG
