This is the new e-mail address of Bimalananda das, formally Benjamin, a.k.a. Coe.

Today (Friday, 8 February 2013) I was initiatied into the line of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and His mission to spread Krishna Consciousness throughout the world by His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Kanan Giri Maharaj Prabhupad,
Acharya of the Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, and my instructing spiritual master.

He has graciously taken me under the shelter of his lotus feet, bestowed me with a devotional name, and given me a purpose when previously I had none. He is my saviour and my master, the distributor of Krishna’s Mercy, and the only hope I have, and for all the rest of my days I shall serve him with every ounce of my strength. Jaya Gurudeva!
