Another live transformed

In my engineering days in Bangalore, I was reading Bhagavad-gita in my class, and since the lecturer was absent my fellow classmates were asking me questions.

Europe and America are in great danger

I read your sankirtana newsletter with great relish. Europe and America are in great danger; this Hare Krsna movement is enveloping them.

A prophecy come true

I was on South Street in Philadelphia, just about to leave for home, but my partner was in a queue in a store, so while waiting I was doing some books. An African-American couple, Dana and Peter, appeared to be from around here, when I met them. I asked whether they had a busy afternoon planned. They are Philly locals, but they had just gotten off a plane after a holiday in South Korea. They were walking around during the afternoon...
