By: gaurarader

This is the story of how I was born in the Krishna Cult, joined the cult as a teenager, gradually distanced myself from the cult, and eventually became an atheist leaving the cult entirely.

    I really enjoy your videos and what you are doing speaking out about the practices of ISKCON etc.. I left at the end of 2011 after a little over a decade. It is still a struggle.

    Write more, thats all I actually have to express.
    Literally, it seems like as if you trusted the
    recording to produce your point. You obviously determine what youre speaking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to the site when you might be giving us something enlightening to read through?
