“The Krishna Conscious movement is not trying to give people a new idea, it’s restoring the original High Civilization.”

Note:  These Vaishnavas are from China, and are thrilled to have met H.D. Goswami, in Gainsville, FL, 
along with their dear friend, Yajna-Priya dd (not pictured). They have become devoted to the path of Bhakti, as taught by Srila Prabhupada, because their spiritual teacher and guide in China, Jahnava dd, along with her husband, Ekachakra das, (both disciples of Tamal Krishna Das Goswami), have published a book compiled from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali lectures H. D. Goswami gave in October 2004, in San Luis Obispo, California.  Jahnava translated the Yoga Sutra classes into Chinese; she and Ekachakra have made thousands of devotees using the Yoga Sutra books as an introduction to Krishna  Consciousness. 
This family, Guanshan, her husband, Zhouxaio, and their daughter, CongCong, are presently in America, helping their daughter settle in Dallas, TX at a new job, after visiting many different ISKCON centers in the USA.
Guanshan has built a first class Govinda center in China, and has purchased land to start a farm project as well.
