An Appeal to Sankirtan Devotees

Hare Krishna! All glory to Srila Prabhupada! My dear devotees, Please kindly accept my humble obeisances. I'd like to thank all of you for the wonderful services you all do for Srila Prabhupada!

Four Sets, One Person

I had a late start on Friday, July 1, 2016 (because of other services at the temple), but it was an excellent start. The first person I met took a Gita even though he could not even speak much English. This made me think it's going to be a fantastic day. It proved to be so after meeting George. This was at Chinatown in Sydney,Australia. George was born and brought up in Australia. He had not visited the temple, but was aware of it...

He told me to never distribute books to yoga students until I have a long-term...

Homeless Man Looking For The Bhagavatam

While distributing at Santa Monica College, I saw a disheveled, homeless man coming toward me who looked like he hadn't bathed in a few years. I was thinking, “Oh no, please don't come to the table.” But he did. He then stood in front of the table for some time looking at the books. I didn't have to see him to know he was there — the stench was enough. Then he looked at me and asked, “Do you have...
