My name is Damodara dasa, which means "servant of God."
I received this name when I was initiated by Srila Prabhupada in ISKCON's Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco, Temple in 1967.
- San Francisco Temple, 1967 -
A perpetually-aspiring devotee of Lord Krishna, I am graced to serve Sri-Sri Radha-Sharadvihari, with Whom I reside in New Vamsivata (Dundee District - Omaha, Nebaska) ...
As a humble devotee, my focus is on living a simple spiritual life - not on controversies. Blessed with Srila Prahupada's unearned, loving acceptance as my Spiritual Master from late adolescence, I never became an active, fully participating member of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) for several personal reasons. I remain a cautious yet increasingly optimistic well-wisher of the organization and its members - several of whom are beloved friends.
