The immense power of Srila Prabhupada’s books

I was distributing at the Los Angeles Trade-Technical College, and, as usual, was stopping people by asking, “Did you get one yet?” A student stopped and said, to my surprise, “Yeah, man, I have these books.

The World Sankirtan Newsletter July 2018

When Rama Raya Prabhu returned to New York from Vrindavan after Aindra Prabhu passed on, he decided to go to New York City and just do harinama 365 days a year. He thought that his good friend Aindra would be pleased if he did that service. At first, he would get one or two devotees to go with him, but eventually the number grew and grew. Now there are always ten or twenty people with him. Wherever there’s harinama, it’s not long...
