IamA girl who was raised in an isolated Hare Krishna community. [Casual Christmas.] AMA!
I'm 18, currently living in Australia. When I was five my parents got really into the Krishna thing, and I was innitiated by a guru (given a new name, told I have to chant every day etcetera.)
When I was 9 we moved from a rented place to a tiny commune in the middle of the bush. My mother remarried a guy that was really into the culture, so they took me out of school to homeschool me and basically just taught me Krishna stuff and some English.
They also arranged a marriage for me when I was about 12 to a guy the family knew.
It's kindof a difficult thing to prove, (that's why I did the Casual Christmas thing) but here's Me as a kid on a rickshaw in India. Plus I can recite a bunch of prayers and know a lot about the culture.
