My name is Damodara dasa, which means "servant of God."
I was initiated by Srila Prabhupada in San Francisco in 1967 - but have never been an actively participateding member of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) for personal reasons.

As a devotee, my focus is on living a spiritual life of serving Lord Krishna - not controversies. I am a cautiously optimistic well-wisher of ISKCON and its members ... a number of whom have remained beloved friends throughout the years.
