I have heard this following quote quite randomly from many devotees that newly moved into the temple. "I have learned more here in one week (or month) then I have learned in the past 10 years!" This spontaneous quote is heard quite often when new devotees come to the temple frequently or move into to the temple as a full monks (ladies included). One of the reasons for this is that there is so much facility to inquire about the details of Krishna Consciousness, which covers practically every aspect of knowledge. Prabhupada has suggested that we should study his books for 2 hours a day. But when one is in the association of others who are also reading Srila Prabhupada's books then the number of reading hours we have access to multiplies exponentially. At Connect I can ask a question about Krishna and it like I have a great research team dedicated to giving me an answer. Not just one answer but many wonderful answers from different angles. I am really thankful that such a facility is available on the internet for all.

Connect is my wondeful temple.
I knew about Krishna.com since day one I became KC but for some reason it just dint occur to me to join connect. After a while I started praying to Krishna for devotees association, one day I just joined & here I am associated with all humble devotees. Ever since I joined I have learnt a lot about Krishna, cleared my doubts.

I'm also very thankful for this resource. In the past I read a lot of books on Krishna but never really felt that I was "connected" because I had never known any devotees. Now I get to find some over the Internet and I can only conclude that Krishna is using this medium for His will.

Hare Krishna~ I feel very fortunate that the wonderful devotees at Krishna.com have created this "virtual temple" for those of us who are aspiring servants of the servant, and who live too far from a temple to regularly attend. Reading and learning from the forums, the blogs and the glorious devotees themselves have brightened my spiritual life immensely. I am sure that this magnificient association of devotees will help me in my journey.

Hare Krishna, Dear Nitynanda Chandra,
Yes, I agree with you on this, I feel this way too....
It is exactly like a temple, connect.
A temple is where devotees come together to serve Krishna and learn about Krishna together... and that's what we do here...
I have always felt like this was just like a temple, this connect community we are all so fortunate to be a part of...
Wonderful example that.... :)

Maybe one of our resident artists will paint a picture of a 'virtual temple' for us to use! :) :) :)
