Forum with a difference

by Lorenzo Rubbo-Ferraro

Posted April 13, 2004

My name is Bhakta Lorenzo Rubbo-Ferraro and I have been a devotee for ten years now. While scouring the net I was dismayed at the lack of quality forums for people interested in the Hare Krishna movement. In many of these forums I was lucky to get a reply at all, and in others I received many replies but none of them relevant to my post! I would like to change all this and offer devotees and especially non-devotees a decent forum where any serious question will be sensibly answered within a week.

I do not intend this to be a place only for chatting but as a resource for people, a reference, that they may find pertinent discussions and information about Krishna Consciousness. To achieve this I will need to do a few things. Firstly, I will need the presence of elevated devotees, as I am unqualified to answer some of the deeper questions regarding Krishna Consciousness. On my part, I will be dedicated to maintaining coherence and order in the threads, so that they may be a beneficial reference for others browsing the net. It will be a place where anything can be discussed, controversial or otherwise, as long as it is done in a respectful manner and with the intention of establishing the truth about Vaisnava siddhanta and ISKCON apologetics, for the benefit of all people. This is something I believe is sorely lacking on the internet.

This is not your usual forum. Please help, if you have spare time. The URL for the forum is

Hare Krishna,

Yours Sincerely,
Bhakta Lorenzo.
