Krishna teachings guided him, and now he will preach to others

I was distributing in Byron Bay. When I approached a man, he asked, “Do you remember me?” “No, sorry, I don’t.” “Three years ago, you gave me the Bhagavad-gita, and I gave you a donation.

Miserable. “I would drink and then read a few...

During the marathon

I was on traveling sankirtana during the marathon. I was in Shepperton, two hours north of Melbourne. At one point, not many books were going out, and I was praying for help. Suddenly, a middle-aged lady appeared in front of me, and I introduced myself and offered her a Bhagavad-gita.

Sandy gets the mercy

Mahotsaha Prabhu recalls: Really nice lady named Sandy from Baltimore. She saw us walking into a grocery store with some books in our hands and came up to ask if she could get a few of them! She’s a kundalini yoga instructor and likes to read spiritual books so we told her we’ll meet her outside with some very special books! We went to the car, took a “Srimad Bhagavatam” set out and showed her the set when she came out to meet us! It...

The Hare Krsna movie does it again

Recent encounter in Union Sqaure NY. I meet this nice guy named Rob, he came over to the table and was really appreciative of everything we were doing and told me he had all of Prabhupada’s books.  I became interested and asked how he had gotten them and what got him started. Then he told me, “two years ago my friend invited me to go see the Hare Krishna Movie, I was so impressed with this movement that after that I...
