About Me
About Me
Dear Adland Friends,I was born in 1945 in Lima, Peru, the land of the Incas and the beautiful landscapes. We were five children in my family, three boys and two girls. My father was the best of men, a lawyer, and my mother a loving, beautiful woman who played the piano brilliantly. Religion was very important in our life and we were a happy family in a happy environment. However, we also were a family of modest resources, and while in theory we belonged to a comfortable middle-class, I never had a real opportunity to study music, art or literature, which I passionately loved. So although I every year got the best grades at school, I ultimately felt forced to study science instead of art and literature. I believe it was because of this decision that I never did well in my early years of work. Also, I never married and hardly ever traveled. If I had to make a balance of that phase in my life, I would say the only good thing I did was become an avid reader of every good book that came to my hands. In the long run, I developed a special taste for anything that had to do with Oriental Wisdom and particularly with India.In 1977, tired of everything I had done until then, I became a disciple to a famous Hindu guru who taught me meditation at its highest. Since then, this precious gift has accompanied me in all circumstances of life. When I was about forty, after many years of frustration and dissatisfaction as an administrator and later on as a translator, I resolved to learn about and experience things that would prove gratifying in my life, like surfing at the beautiful beaches near my home area and taking courses in watercolor painting. Next I sold my old van and for a while I traveled, mostly by train, photographing the wonderful sceneries of my country, a tour which for years to come would inspire me to draw and paint as a hobby until I run out of money and had to get back to Lima and my usual occupations. However, deep inside of me was a permanent longing for my studies in the Oriental disciplines.The years that followed were difficult times for me and everyone in my country, as terrorism wreaked havoc in our lives for nearly two decades. The nightmare finally ended, after another lengthy span of time in which I tried about almost everything, including some writing and editing books, I felt the urge to deepen further into my Oriental studies. Then, as if by magic, a precious Hindu holy scripture, the Third Canto of Bhagavata Purana, came to my hands. I was so marveled to learn that in very remote times the Hindus were familiar with such advanced scientific concepts as the expansion of the universe and the space–time relativity, both of them notions which modern science would only become aware of from the twentieth century onwards. This, and the huge lengths of time involved in relation to cosmic cycles and ages, led me to start a study in the doctrine of cosmic cycles, which I published soon afterwards, in about 1998, in Spanish.At the same time, I started visiting a Hindu temple and ashram in Lima where, after playing the tabla to the sound of the devotees' bajans for a couple of years, I received from the temple Pujari the sacred cord and my new Hindu name, Krishnananda. By then, I was feeling inspired to get started on a new, more rewarding phase in my life, and so I resolved to work online, which I saw as an opportunity to earn big money and make lots of friends. Then for a couple of years I felt at ease with both the world and myself, as I really liked the work. At the same time, I felt it was not enough. I wanted more from life, a real reason to live. It was then that I felt a strong, mysterious urge to translate my book La rueda del tiempo into English, which is what has taken most of my time during the last year. Currently I live with my lovely Goddaughter and her mother, who used to be our housekeeper in years past. I love the both of them most dearly. We have three charming dogs, Paco, Moses and Dune, and we love to care for them and for every little being that we may come across in the streets. Among my many interests, I am particularly fond of Religion, Eastern Cults, and Metaphysics. I love listening to music, reading, writing, painting, networking, and taking our dogs for a walk along the seafront lanes and parks in Miraflores, the beautiful district of Lima where we live. Thank you,Luis Miguel Goitizolo
