I started volunteering 20 years ago by helping during the school summer holidays which conveniently encompass the Janmashtami festival period. My main service was in the which I came back to every year. Then one day, a devotee said the kitchen is also open every Sunday to cook prasadam for the evening guests. Such a simple statement compelled me to maintain this service every Sunday for several years!
I love volunteering – I started helping during summer holidays. The devotees really looked after me by collecting me from home and taking me back. I had a little IT experience and volunteered to help with the Janmashtami magazine. However intense the service was or however pushed for deadlines, I never felt put out, but always enjoyed the service and remained grateful to be in the wonderful association of devotees.
