I was saddened to read the article by Rocana Das. I am a disciple of Srila Prabhupada living in Nottingham. I was longing for the association of devotees and was fortunate to attend Rathayatra in Leicester. There I was reunited with some of my godbrothers who welcomed me and introduced me to some disciples of HH Sivarama Swami, who organise the Nama Hatta in Nottingham. These devotees have encouraged me, supporting me through difficult times. I am now an active member of Nama Hatta and I also have had the opportunity to visit the Temple in Leicester where I have felt nothing but affection from the devotees new and old. Whenever there is a visiting Swami or special event at the temple, these devotees make sure we all know of it so that we can take advantage of the association. They have shown me nothing but kindness and my spiritual life is now flourishing as a result. Please do not be discouraged. I am not qualified to advise anyone other than to constantly seek out the association of devotees.
