Keep in touch

As we all know, book distribution is a very important activity that Prabhupada emphasized a lot. He also wanted people to become devotees by reading the books. This possibility is increased by our keeping in touch with the people we meet who are interested in the books. It's called “contact sankirtana.” We've all heard of it, but it's something we have to be reminded of every so often. At one point, while...
